Matangi Road, Mt Wellington In response to community requests to improve access and visibility, we are planning to paint broken yellow lines on the bends and cul-de-sac of Matangi Road, Mt Wellington. Four parking spaces will be removed as a result of these changes. September 2022 Download proposal drawing (PDF 595KB)
Hamer Street, Auckland Central We are planning to improve parking availability and turnover in the central city by introducing a paid parking restriction on Hamer Street, Auckland Central. The paid parking restriction will apply from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday.

The tariff will be:

Day and time  0-2 hours tariff 2+ hours tariff
Monday to Friday
8am to 6pm
$3.50 per hour $7 + $7 per hour
Saturday
8am to 6pm
$1.50 per hour $3 + $3 per hour

These changes will improve the availability of parking in the central city for visitors. All other nearby streets already have paid parking restrictions, which have increased the turnover of parking spaces for various uses.

Existing P120 and P180 restrictions will continue to operate at all other times (outside of the paid parking restriction time), to stop self-contained vehicles (camper vans) from parking overnight, and to prevent other antisocial activities in the area.

After talking to the community and local businesses, we have decided to make a minor change to the plan. We are introducing a new P5 Loading Zone operational at all times outside 14 Hamer Street. This will facilitate the loading and servicing of the businesses in the area.
These works are scheduled for mid-August 2022.  Download proposal drawing (PDF 261KB)
Lake Road, Northcote In response to community requests to improve access, we are planning on painting broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) along the road off the main Lake Road corridor. This road off the main corridor of Lake Road is particularly narrow and cars parked on both sides can block the road and prevent residents from accessing their properties.

The changes will improve traffic flow and accessibility along Lake Road. While on street parking spaces will be removed, there will be no loss of parking spaces as vehicles cannot legally park opposite each other if it blocks access along the road.
These works are scheduled for September 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 259KB)
Viaduct Harbour Avenue, Auckland Central In response to community requests to address the traffic flow, we are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) in front of 22 Viaduct Harbour Avenue. These works are scheduled for August 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 303KB)
Humariri Street and Buxton Street, Point Chevalier In response to community requests to address safety and visibility issues, we are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) on the intersections of Humariri Street & Point Chevalier Road and Buxton Street & Point Chevalier Road. These works are scheduled for July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 277KB)
Mokoia Road, Birkenhead Installing broken yellow lines. These works are scheduled for July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 234KB)
Vincent McGrath Crescent, Swanson - Broken Yellow Lines In response to community requests, we are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) along Vincent McGrath Crescent in Swanson. Because it is a narrow road, vehicles parked on both sides of the road can cause issues with vehicle access and visibility.

We plan to paint broken yellow lines on one side of Vincent McGrath Crescent, in areas where vehicles could park opposite each other. Broken yellow lines will also be painted around the bend of the intersections leading to Vincent McGrath Crescent.
These works are scheduled for August 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 427KB)
Mount Smart Road, Royal Oak In response to community requests to address illegal and potentially unsafe parking, we are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) between 22 and 24 Mount Smart Road, Royal Oak. These works are scheduled for August 2022. Download proposal drawing (554KB)
Makete Crescent and Waipana Street, Hobsonville We are planning on painting broken yellow lines along both Makete Crescent and Waipana Street, Hobsonville to improve vehicle access along these roads.

Makete Crescent and Waipana Street are narrow roads and cars parked on both sides make driving down the street difficult, especially for rubbish collection vehicles. Cars parked on both sides of the road also prevent residents from accessing their properties.

The changes will ensure a safer road space, by improving traffic flow and accessibility. We understand that removing parking can be inconvenient, so we have minimised the removal whilst maintaining access and visibility on these roads.
These works are scheduled for August 2022. Download proposal drawing (319KB)
Hull Road, Waitoki We are reinstating the winter driving restriction trial on Hull Road between 1 June and 31 August, which will prevent access to Hull Road between those dates. Hull Road will still be open to pedestrians and cyclists during these months.

These changes are in response to community requests to address the issue of 4WD vehicles tracking excessive mud from Hull Road onto Austin Road causing road damage and unsafe driving conditions. By closing Hull Road during the winter season this should prevent further road damage on both road ends and address anti-social behaviour. 

The planned winter road closure was consulted in 2020 and resulted in a trial period closure between 1 June and 31 August 2021; however due to the COVID-19 lockdown no effective monitoring was possible during this time and the trial ran longer than intended as AT staff were unable to open the road again.
These works are scheduled for 1 June 2022.  Download proposal drawing (836KB)
Paisley Place, Gabador Place, Fisher Crescent and Rakino Way,
Mount Wellington
Local businesses and the public have complained to us about boy racer behaviour on Paisley Place, Gabador Place, Fisher Crescent, and Rakino Way during hours of darkness. The New Zealand Police has also asked us to look into solutions to this issue.

We are planning to install signage and introduce a Light Motor Vehicle Restriction from 10pm to 4am on Paisley Place, Gabador Place, Fisher Crescent, and Rakino Way.

The restriction will prohibit any motor vehicle weighing less than 3500 kg, such as 2WD and cars, from using these streets during these hours. This restriction will not apply to mini trucks and larger vehicles such as trucks, emergency service vehicles, and rubbish trucks.
These works are scheduled for September 2022. Download proposal drawing (257kB)
Marine Lane, Mount Wellington We are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) at the intersection of Marine Lane and Waipuna Road East. This change will formalise the parking arrangement at the intersection and make it safer for all road users. These works are scheduled to be implemented by July 2022. Download proposal drawing (261kB)
Gladstone Road, Parnell We are planning to install No Stopping Off Roadway signs on the berm on the eastern side of Gladstone Road, between its intersection with Saint Stephens Avenue and Canterbury Place. THis will stop heavy vehicles parking on the grass berm outside Parnell District School. All existing parking restrictions along this stretch of road will be retained. These works are scheduled for July 2022. Download proposal drawing (345kB)
Rangatira Road, Beach Haven In response to a community request to increase visibility for motorists exiting Taurus Crescent to Rangatira Road, we are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) to give clear visibility to turning motorists and improve safety and traffic flow.
Changes include:
  • Paint 6 metres of broken yellow lines from the driveway of 181 Rangatira Road to 2 Taurus Crescent. This will remove at least 4 parking spaces. The removal of parking spaces will have a minimal impact as there will be sufficient parking on the road for residents to utilise.
These works are scheduled for 27 June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 242kB)
The Strand, Takapuna P120 Mobility Spaces and Angle Parking
In response to feedback we received about accessibility issues, we are planning to upgrade the current mobility parking spaces at The Strand, Takapuna.
These changes will improve access to the area for mobility permit holders. The planned changes will also increase the number of formalised paid parking spaces for the rest of the public.
Changes include:
  • Repurpose one of the existing paid parking spaces to make the 2 existing accessible spaces wider and meet NZ Standards. This will give mobility users enough space to enter and exit their vehicle. 
  • Install concrete ramps on each mobility parking space so mobility permit holders have easy access to the pathway. 
  • Formalise the parking bay spaces to the right to create 5 angled parking bays as part of the Takapuna Paid Parking Zone.
These works are scheduled for June to July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 146kB)
Riverina Avenue, Pakuranga Broken Yellow Lines – In response to a request to address driver visibility issues when entering or exiting their driveway, we are planning to paint a single section of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) outside 3 Riverina Avenue, Pakuranga. Riverina Avenue is a narrow road, approximately 5.5 m in width, and therefore cannot accommodate vehicles parking opposite each other. These works are scheduled by July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 249kB)
Sandringham Road, Kingsland In response to a request to remove the P10 sign from outside 25 Sandringham Road, we are planning to relocate the P10 exit sign. The subsequent investigation identified that the P10 and P120 had been incorrectly installed. Unfortunately, due to a property canopy, it was not possible to install the sign in its correct approved location.
We are planning to move the existing P10 exit sign away from 25 Sandringham Road. The revised length of the P10 will be 25 metres but includes a vehicle entrance of 5.5 metres, therefore, the available parking space will be 19.5 metres. This is an increase of 7.5m from the originally approved length. The P120 restriction becomes 87 metres in length, from 25 all the way to 13 Sandringham Road.
These changes will adjust the pole signs, without the risk of being struck by vehicles. The changes will also continue to improve the availability of parking spaces and access to parking in the area.

East Tamaki Road, East Tāmaki We are improving pedestrian safety by installing a footpath along the south side East Tamaki Road near Hampton Park and the playfields at 383 East Tamaki Road. This stretch of East Tamaki Road has been identified as a missing link in the footpath network. This project aims to provide a consistent, accessible and safe place to walk when visiting Hampton Park, the playfields, or the nearby businesses.
Changes include:
  • Installing a footpath along the south side of East Tamaki Road along 359 and 383 East Tamaki Road, which will include a grass verge at the roadside.
  • Creating a pedestrian island crossing across the entrance to the carpark at 383 East Tamaki Road. The planned footpath will link into the existing footpaths along East Tamaki Road.
These works are scheduled for June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 2.1MB)
Hampton Drive, Kohimarama We are making changes in response to a resident’s request for an accessible pedestrian crossing facility at the intersection of Hampton Drive and Kohimarama Road. These changes will include:
  • Installing kerb ramps outside 318 Hampton Drive and 324 Kohimarama Road. These ramps allow prams, wheelchairs, and mobility scooters to transition smoothly from the footpath to the road.
  • Installing tactile pavers which are yellow guidance paving markers that help visually impaired people to find their way to the crossing and safely cross the road.
  • Creating a new footpath with a gentle slope outside 318 Hampton Drive and paint broken yellow lines (not stopping at all times) on the northern corner of Hampton Drive and Kohimarama Road which will result in the removal of 3 parking spaces. 
These works are scheduled for September 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 594KB)
Houston Place, Bayview In response to community requests, we are planning changes to improve vehicle access into and out of Houston Place, especially for emergency services and rubbish collection vehicles. we are planning to paint 106 metres of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) along the Northern kerb of Houston Place from the corner of Hale Crescent to the beginning of the cul-de-sac in order to improve accessibility. This will formalise parking to be along one side of the road. These works are scheduled for July to September 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 452KB)
Mountain Road and Albury Avenue, Epsom We are planning to install a traffic island on the corner of Mountain Road and Albury Avenue, and install tactile pavers, which are yellow guidance paving markers that help visually impaired people find their way to the crossing and safely cross the road.

We also plan to paint a new stop line on Albury Avenue closer to the intersection with Mountain Road, white hatch markings on Mountain Road, and broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) outside 128 Mountain Road.

We are planning these changes to improve cycle safety. There have been 2 crashes at this intersection in the past 5 years when drivers exiting Albury Avenue failed to give way turning right and collided with cyclists riding southbound. The traffic island will encourage cyclists to ride in the middle of the lane, making them more visible to traffic turning out of Albury Avenue.

This will also allow us to move the stop line on Albury Avenue forward to improve visibility between road users at the intersection.

We also plan to paint 15 m of bus stop markings at the existing bus stop on the western side of Mountain Road. We plan to paint 15 m of lead in and 9 m of lead out broken yellow lines so buses can drive in and out of the stop easily. We will also move the existing bench north, closer to the top of the bus stop.
These works are scheduled for June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 346KB)
Clark Street, New Lynn To make it safer and easier to cycle along Clark Street, Auckland Transport will be installing physical separation between the vehicle lanes and existing painted cycle lanes on Clark Street from Rankin Avenue to Olympic Place.

The separators will be 300mm wide, 150mm high raised concrete islands positioned on the existing cycle lane white line. Gaps will be left for existing property accesses and side road intersections. We will not make any changes to access or parking.
These works are scheduled to be completed in May to June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 3MB)

Tainui Road, Mount Wellington We are planning to restore broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) between the two driveways at 20 Tainui Road and shift the centreline along the straight sections near 20 Tainui Road, creating more space for parked vehicles. We have seen that many quarry trucks queue along the northern side of Tainui Road, which results in northbound vehicles crossing the centreline to pass around the blind corner. This is a safety issue that we want to address with these changes.

Restoring the broken yellow lines will discourage quarry trucks from stopping at this location, while shifting the centreline will provide more space for motorists to pass vehicles parked on the roadside in the permitted areas. The slightly reduced lane width overall will also encourage motorists to reduce their speed on the approach to the bend.
We remain in negotiations with
external stakeholders who are opposed
to our current proposal. Expected
implementation of an updated proposal
might be as late as August.

The separators will be 300mm wide, 150mm high raised concrete islands positioned on the cycle lane white line. Gaps will be left for existing property accesses and side road intersection.

These changes will improve the safety and the experience for cyclists on Ian McKinnon Drive by creating a physical barrier between motor vehicles and people on bikes. This project will not result in any changes to public rubbish or recycling bin collection and we will not make any changes to access or parking. 
These works are scheduled for May to June 2022, and the work will primarily take place at night. Download proposal drawing (PDF 2.44MB).
Anzac Road Carpark, Browns Bay We have received requests from the Hibiscus & Bays Local Board and the Business Improvement District to address parking availability in this area. We are planning to introduce a two-hour parking restrictions (P120) at the 31 Anzac Road carpark from 8am to 6pm Monday to Sunday.

These changes will restrict people from parking long term at 31 Anzac Road carpark which will increase the availability of and access to parking in the area for people visiting local businesses in the Browns Bay Town Centre.
These works are scheduled to be completed between June and August 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 156KB).
Cardinal Place, Glendowie We are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) along one side of Cardinal Place and at the intersection with Wendover Road. We have received requests from residents to improve access into and out of the Cardinal Place, especially for emergency services and rubbish collection vehicles. In response, we are planning to paint broken yellow lines to stop cars from parking on both sides of the street as this causes access issues.
When cars are only parked on one side of Cardinal Place safe access is improved for larger vehicles, as they will no longer have to manoeuvre around parked vehicles.
These works are scheduled for mid-June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 160KB)
Remuera Road and Pukeora Avenue, Remuera We are planning some changes to the Remuera Road and Pukeora Avenue intersection, to improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists. These changes include installing two, raised traffic islands at the corners of the intersection. We are also planning to paint a new stop line, for vehicles exiting Pukeora Avenue, beyond the traffic islands to improve visibility between vehicles at the intersection.

In the past 5 years there have been two reported crashes at the intersection. Both crashes involved vehicles turning right to enter Pukeora Avenue and cyclists riding in an eastbound direction. The traffic islands will encourage cyclists to ride in the middle of the traffic lane so that they are more visible to drivers turning into Pukeora Avenue. The traffic islands will also provide pedestrians with a protected place to wait to cross the road.

Upper Harbour Drive, Greenhithe To make cycling along Upper Harbour Drive safer and easier, we will install physical separators between the vehicle lanes and existing painted cycle lanes on Upper Harbour Drive from Albany Highway to Tauhinu Road. These changes will create a physical barrier between motor vehicles and people on bikes. 

The separators will be 300mm-wide raised concrete islands positioned on the existing cycle lane's white line. We will leave gaps for access to existing properties and side road intersections. We will not be making any changes to parking, vehicle lanes, or rubbish collection. 
These works are scheduled to be completed by July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 428kB)
Shamrock Lane, Te Atatū Peninsula We are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) down the northern side of Shamrock Lane. This will result in the removal of 7 on-street parking spaces.

These changes are in response to a request from Fire and Emergency New Zealand who have experienced issues in accessing Shamrock Lane safely. Shamrock Lane is a narrow road, with a width of approximately 5.6m, and emergency vehicle access can be blocked when vehicles are parked on both sides of the road.

Installing broken yellow lines down one side of the road will prevent parked vehicles from blocking the lane and therefore improve emergency vehicle access. We understand that the removal of parking can be inconvenient, so we have minimised the removal while improving safe access for larger vehicles.
We anticipate these works will be completed by June to July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 199kB)
Hamurana Place and Ti Kouka Place, Te Atatū Peninsula In response to community requests to address visibility issues, we are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) at the intersection of Hamurana Place and Ti Kouka Place.

This will improve visibility at the intersection and safety for pedestrians, including students at Peninsula Primary School who access Ti Kouka Place on their way to and from school.
These works are scheduled for June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 233KB)
Hinemoa Street, Birkenhead In response to a request to address parking issues, we are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) next to the Northcote Birkenhead Yacht Club and the Birkenhead Ferry Terminal on Hinemoa Street, Birkenhead.

We have received several complaints about vehicles parking inappropriately outside the Birkenhead Yacht Club and the Birkenhead Ferry Terminal. We have been requested to install and enforce parking restrictions in the area. These changes will make it clear where vehicles can and cannot be parked and allow parking restrictions to be legally enforced. The changes will also improve access by preventing parked vehicles obstructing the road.
These works are scheduled for the end of July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 241KB)
Stanley Bay Wharf, Calliope Road, Devonport As a result of an investigation into road access and safety issues, we are planning to repaint broken yellow lines (no stopping on all times) on both sides of the access road. 

The investigation found an issue of vehicles parking along Calliope Road, causing access issues for fuel tankers entering the naval base and obstructing vehicles accessing the angled parking spaces.

The signage in the parking area no longer meets the area's needs and will be removed. These changes will ensure safety for all, and access for fuel tankers and other emergency vehicles along the access road from Calliope Road.
These works are scheduled to be constructed between April and June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 232KB)
Magnolia Place, Flat Bush Residents have told us that parked cars on Magnolia Place are making it hard for them to enter and exit the road, especially at school peak times. To improve access to the street, we are installing some parking restrictions.
We are painting broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) along the north side of Magnolia Place and along its cul-de-sac. The broken yellow lines will alert drivers that no stopping or parking is allowed along the north side and end of the street. These restrictions aim to keep Magnolia Place clear and improve access to homes.
These works are scheduled to be completed by the end of June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 263KB)
Gaunt Street and Pakenham Street West, Auckland Central We are planning to remove 11m of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) on Gaunt Street and Pakenham Street West, Auckland Central.
Broken yellow lines were temporarily painted at 1 Gaunt Street and 70 Pakenham Street West to prevent vehicles from blocking access to these properties.
Access to these properties is no longer required, so we are removing the broken yellow lines. This will restore 2 parking spaces at both Gaunt Street and Pakenham Street West for community use.
We anticipate these works will be completed by June to July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 1.01MB)
Third Avenue, Onetangi Together with Waiheke Local Board and Electric Island, we are planning improve facilities for electric vehicles on Waiheke, by restricting three existing parking spaces on Third Avenue for electric vehicle use only. Waiheke has the highest number of electric vehicles per capita in New Zealand.
Electric vehicles will be able to charge in these spaces and will be permitted to stay for up to 240 minutes. These spaces will support the high and growing number of electric vehicles on Waiheke and support efforts to lower emissions across the island. 
These works are scheduled for between April and June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 174KB)
Anzac Road, Orapiu We are making some changes to improve facilities for electric vehicles, by restricting an existing parking space on Anzac Road for electric vehicle use only. Waiheke has the highest number of electric vehicles per capita in New Zealand.
Electric Island together with Waiheke Local Board and Auckland Transport are planning to restrict one parking space on Anzac Road into an electric vehicle parking space, where EV’s can charge and are permitted to stay for up to 240 minutes. This electric vehicle parking space will support the high and growing number of electric vehicles on Waiheke, supporting efforts to lower emissions across the island.
These works are scheduled for April and June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 179KB)
Whitford Road and Whitford-Maraetai Road, Franklin We are going to install Audio Tactile Profiled (ATP) road markings on Whitford Road and Whitford-Maraetai Road to improve road safety along the route.

ATP road markings are the small bumps on the centre and sides of the road that make noise and vibrate to let the driver know they’re driving outside of their lane. They help to boost drivers’ awareness of the lanes and curves on rural roads like Whitford and Whitford-Maraetai Roads by providing markers you can see, hear, and feel.

This route between Somerville Road and Beachlands is considered a high-risk corridor because of its crash history. Installing the ATP road markings will help keep drivers in their lanes and reduce the risk of an accident.
There has been a slight delay due to COVID-19 affecting the factory in Australia that supplies the ATP material, and a few weeks of wet weather affecting our ability to install the product.

Whitford Road and Whitford-Maraetai Road are both now approximately 85% complete. 

The remaining 15% has been postponed due to clashes with planned maintenance work. It will be completed in summer 2022 to 23, approximately 6 to 8 weeks after road repairs and resealing are complete.
These sections are:
  • Whitford Road (Between Wades Road and Whitford Urban Boundary)
  • Whitford-Maraetai Road (Between Beachlands Roundabout and Maraetai Urban Boundary)

Wiles Avenue, Remuera In February 2022 we invited community feedback on our proposal to improve access into Wiles Avenue for rubbish trucks and other large vehicles, such as emergency services. We originally planned to paint 5m of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) on Wiles Avenue, between no.17 and no.17A. These changes would remove no legal on-street parking spaces. We are now painting an additional 2.5m of broken yellow lines on the southern end of the driveway of no.22 at the request of residents. This will remove one parking space.

These changes are in response to a request from Waste Management. Currently, rubbish truck drivers are having difficulty accessing Wiles Avenue when cars are parked on either side of the corner at 17 and 17A Wiles Avenue.

The broken yellow lines will ensure that rubbish trucks and other large vehicles, such as emergency vehicles, can safely enter and exit Wiles Avenue without risking the safety of parked vehicles.
These works are scheduled for July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 186KB)
East Coast Road, Dairy Flat We are going to install Audio Tactile Profile (ATP) road markings to the edge-lines and centreline along East Coast Road to improve road safety in the area.

These changes aim to reduce the risk of head-on and run-off-road type crashes. Between 2015 and 2019, there were 14 injury crashes of these types on East Coast Road. 5 caused serious injury and 9 were minor.

East Coast Road is considered a high-risk corridor because of this history of crashes. Installing the ATP road markings will help keep drivers in their lanes, which will reduce the risk of an accident.
Due to poor weather conditions,
construction is now expected to be
completed by the end of June.

Sanders Road, Paremoremo We are planning to paint staggered broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) along Sanders Road from the gate entering Sanders Reserve to the end of Merewhira Road. AT investigated this area in response to community requests. Sanders Road is a narrow road, and we discovered access issues caused by vehicles parking on both sides of the road.

The staggered arrangement of the broken yellow lines will encourage lower driving speeds on this narrow road. The changes will prevent vehicles from parking opposite one another on both sides of the road. This will improve access down Sanders Road, particularly for emergency and service vehicles. 
We anticipate these works will be completed by June to July 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 150KB)
Tamaki Drive, Ōrākei We are planning changes to improve driver and road safety on Tamaki Drive. The changes include:

    • Install two “Advance Curve Warning” signs, with ‘SLOW’ road markings, at both approaches to the bend on Tamaki Drive between Okahu Street and Watene Crescent.
    • Remove the existing “Reverse Curve - Decreasing Radius” sign for the drivers travelling eastbound. This sign is being replaced by the new “Advanced Curve Warning” sign.
    • Install two “Slippery Surface - Slow When Wet” signs prior to the bend on Tamaki Drive between Okahu Street and Watene Crescent. As an interim solution, the two signs are to be removed after the high friction surfacing is to be laid in 2022/23 financial year.
    • Install High Friction Surfacing (HFS) through the bend. However, this will be installed in the 2022/23 financial year incorporated as part of Auckland Transports Maintenance Programme. Before the HFS is in place, Auckland Transport will waterblast the bend to clean the road surface. This will minimise the risk of slippery roads during wet weather for motorists.
These changes are in response to a number of reported loss of control crashes on Tamaki Drive near Okahu Street. The main cause of these crashes were motorists approaching the bend at an inappropriate speed for the road conditions they were driving in. In the past 5 years 15 crashes have occurred at this location, as a result of motorists driving at high speeds in wet conditions. This project aims to raise driver’s awareness to the upcoming bend, so that they are prepared to slow down to an appropriate speed for the conditions that they are driving around the bend in.
These works have been delayed due to
difficulties in procuring signs. These
works are now scheduled for June
2022.

Woodlands Park Road, Titirangi We are planning to install ‘No Stopping Off Roadway’ signage on the grass berm outside 152 Woodlands Park Road in Titirangi. This project responds to a community request to address unsafe parking on the grass berm, as vehicles parked in this location restrict visibility.

Installing ‘No Stopping Off Roadway’ signs will prevent berm parking by making it clear to drivers that parking on the berms is prohibited. These changes aim to improve visibility for drivers exiting their driveways along this stretch of road and for drivers travelling around the bend.
These works are scheduled for May - June 2022 Download proposal drawing (PDF 466KB)
Manutewhau Road and Ambar Ridge Avenue, Massey We are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) on Ambar Ridge Avenue, Manutewhau Road, and George McWhirter Avenue. We are planning to paint these lines in places where parked vehicles may block the movement of other vehicles, especially emergency services, along these streets.

We are also planning to install no stopping off roadway signs to restrict drivers from parking on the grass berms on Manutewhau Road, Ambar Ridge Avenue, George McWhirter Avenue, Waimoana Close, and Orowaru Avenue.

No legal parking spaces will be removed as result of these changes. The new road markings and signage will make it clear to drivers where vehicles should and should not be parked. This will improve access by preventing drivers from parking in a way that obstructs the road and flow of vehicles along these streets.
These words are scheduled for March - June 2022. Download proposal drawing (PDF 600KB)
Fowlds Avenue, Sandringham – Bus Stop Removal We plan to get rid of the bus stop road markings on Fowlds Avenue as they are not being used. There are no signs at the bus stop at 5 Fowlds Avenue that let our parking wardens ticket illegal parking there. That's caused people to park at the stop all day.
We'll replace the stop with a No Stopping restriction that runs from 9 am - 11 am Monday to Sunday. This is the same restriction on this stretch of Fowlds Avenue.
These works are scheduled for May / June 2022.  Download proposal drawing (PDF 1.02MB)
New North Road and Sandringham Road, Kingsland We plan to install two raised zebra crossings on the slip lanes at the intersection of New North Road and Sandringham Road.
We will install one crossing on the slip lane onto New North Road heading west. We will install the other crossing on the slip lane onto Sandringham Road heading south. We will raise the crossings to the same level as the footpath.
These raised crossings will give pedestrians, especially school children, a safer place to cross. Many pedestrians use these slip lanes to get to local schools and businesses. AT has observed about 100 pedestrians crossing during busy morning and evening times.
Raising the crossing will make it easier for drivers to see pedestrians and help slow down traffic speeds near the crossings. Currently, drivers do not need to slow down or give way to pedestrians at the slip lanes. With the crossing points, drivers will need to stop for pedestrians waiting to cross.
This intersection is part of another AT project, the New North Road and Symonds Street Upgrade. It includes medium to long-term improvements along New North Road and its major intersections. As part of this project, we will look into creating a new intersection design. This could include prioritising buses, separate cycle lanes, and safety improvements for pedestrians.
You'll be able to provide us with feedback soon. To learn more about this project, visit our virtual engagement room.

College Hill, Freemans Bay We are installing a cycle lane from 5 to 25 College Hill, Freemans Bay. We will paint the cycle lane green to make the cycle route clear for cyclists and other vehicle users.
College Hill is on a major cycle route that is popular for cyclists travelling into or out of the city. This project will link College Hill with the existing Victoria Street Cycleway. It will also make it safer for cyclists to travel down College Hill. In the past 5 years, there have been 3 crashes at the intersection of College Hill and Gudgeon Street. These crashes were due to drivers failing to give way to eastbound cyclists. This new dedicated, protected cycle lane will keep cyclists safer and improve cycling networks in the city.

Orakei Road, Remuera We are planning to repaint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) outside 147 and 149 Orakei Road, Remuera. This will result in the removal of 2 parking spaces.
Broken yellow lines were previously painted on Orakei Road opposite Manawa Road and we plan to reinstate them due to recent requests to remove the parking at this location. A site observation showed that when drivers are waiting to turn right from Orakei Road into Manawa Road, southbound traffic on Orakei Road could queue back hundreds of meters during peak times.
Reinstating the broken yellow lines will enable road users to pass those who are waiting to turn and improve the traffic flow.
Due to a changeover in contractors,
these works are now scheduled for July
2022.

The Strand, Takapuna In response to community requests, we are planning some changes to improve access to Takapuna Beach and nearby public facilities for mobility permit holders on The Strand, Takapuna.
AT has received requests to address the difficulties that some mobility permit holders have experienced with the current parking design at The Strand, Takapuna. The planned changes will increase the number of accessible spaces and upgrade the existing spaces in close proximity to the accessible public facilities on The Strand.

Merton Road, Saint Johns We are planning changes to the broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) on Merton Road, Saint Johns. The changes to the broken yellow lines on Merton Road will improve driver and road safety, especially for larger vehicles travelling westbound. Currently vehicles park too close to the existing pedestrian island, which creates access issues for vehicles travelling past the crossing point. The new formation of the broken yellow lines will ensure that larger vehicles can travel through here safely and with ease. These works are scheduled for June 2022.

Duncan Avenue, Te Atatū South In response to community requests, we are planning changes to address the issue of parked cars restricting vehicle movements around the traffic islands on Duncan Avenue.
We are planning to paint broken yellow line (no stopping at all times) restrictions on either side of each set of traffic islands on Duncan Avenue. This will restrict drivers from parking too close to the traffic islands, which will allow for improved vehicle maneuverability and decrease the risk of damage to the roadway or vehicles as a result.
These changes will remove 8 legal on-street parking spaces.

Richardson Road, Owairaka We are planning to upgrade the existing zebra crossing outside 46 Richardson Road to a raised zebra crossing to improve pedestrian safety in the area. The upgraded crossing will be raised to be flush with the footpath.
Parking will be rearranged. However, there will be no loss of parking outside the shops. These changes on Richardson Road will improve pedestrian safety for people accessing the nearby shops, parks and school by slowing down approaching drivers.

Bassett Road, Remuera We are planning to install a speed bump outside of 160 Bassett Road that guides drivers to slow down.
Auckland Transport received complaints from the local community that parked cars on the northern section of Bassett Road were being damaged by vehicles travelling down Bassett Road at high speeds. When cars park on either side of Bassett Road the road becomes narrow and vehicles need to move to the side to allow motorists travelling in the opposite direction to pass.
Speed bumps on other sections of Bassett Road have been successful in slowing down high vehicles speeds. The installation of a speed bump at 160 Bassett Road aims to address community concerns about speeding drivers and reduce the damage to parked cars.
Construction is scheduled to begin in August 2022.  Download proposal drawing (PDF 460KB)
Royal Road, Massey In partnership with Waka Kotahi (NZ Transport Agency), we are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) and install a Cycle Lane Ends sign along the southern kerb of Royal Road, Massey.
This will improve the safety of cyclists by providing measures to ensure vehicles and cyclists are able to merge safely at this location. These changes will result in the loss of 3 parking spaces.

Powell Street, Avondale In August 2021 we informed the community of our plans to improve access to the cul-de-sac on Powell Street by painting broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times).
Based on further investigation of the issue and the feedback from local rubbish collection service, the design has been updated to install additional sections of broken yellow lines along the road leading into the cul-de-sac on Powell Street. This would result in an additional 18 metres of broken yellow lines and would remove 3 additional parking spaces.
