Carex Way, Long Bay Hibiscus and Bays Local Board and residents have asked us to address the issue of vehicles parking along the road and inside the head of the cul-de-sac of Carex Way. This causes access issues to residential driveways, and blocks access for emergency services and rubbish collection services. We are planning to paint broken yellow lines to address this issue. Approximately 15 parking spaces will be removed. These works are scheduled to be constructed in December 2021 Download proposal drawing (PDF 467KB)
Whangaparoa Road, Red Beach We are planning to improve road and driver safety by installing a speed alert sign at 231 Whangaparoa Road. These changes will improve driver and road safety on Whangaparoa Road. Since 2015 there has been an increase in loss of control crashes at this location. It was identified that the main cause of these crashes were drivers speeding when approaching the bend. The speed alert sign will increase driver awareness of the corner and encourage them to slow down to an appropriate, safe speed as per the road conditions for travelling around the bend when heading westbound. These works are scheduled for the end of October 2021. Download proposal drawing (PDF 2.5MB)
Brighton Road, Parnell We are planning to improve driver and road safety by installing a speed alert sign at 109 Brighton Road. Since 2015 there has been an increase in loss of control crashes at this location. The main cause of crashes was identified as drivers speeding when approaching the bend. The speed alert sign will increase driver awareness of the corner and encourage them to slow down to an appropriate, safe speed as per the road conditions for travelling around the bend when heading north. These works are scheduled for the end of October 2021. Download proposal drawing (PDF 1.9MB)
Taylor Street, Māngere Bridge Following a request from the community, we will be removing broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times lines) from the north side of Taylor Street in Māngere Bridge between 30A Taylor Street and 20 Taylor Street. The road is over 10.5 metres wide so cars can park safely in this section, and we expect the parked cars on the roadside will encourage slower driving speeds through the area. January 2022 Download proposal drawing (PDF 461KB)
Massey Road, Māngere – Broken Yellow Lines After receiving multiple requests from the community, we are removing the on-street parking between the Massey Road-Mascot Avenue intersection and the bus stop to the west. This will remove two parking spaces near #623 Massey Road. The Massey Road and Mascot Avenue intersection is a high-risk intersection, with nine reported crashes in the last five years. Removing the parking will improve visibility for vehicles turning out of Mascot Avenue. January 2022 Download proposal drawing (PDF 355KB)
John Street, Pukekohe Watercare have asked us to improve access to the water filling station on John Street in Pukekohe. We are planning to formalise the existing loading zone area opposite 50 John Street as a P5 Loading Zone for water carrier trucks by installing signage. We will also paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) on either side of the existing loading zone to ensure that the water tank trucks can pull into and out of the loading zone. This will remove approximately four on-street parking spaces. These parking restrictions and clear signage will improve the ability of water trucks to access the water filling station safely. November 2021 Download proposal drawing (PDF 266kb)
Tamaki Drive, Parnell In your area, we are making some changes to improve road user safety along Tamaki Drive by installing a variable messaging sign. A variable messaging sign, which is an electronic messaging sign, on Tamaki Drive before the turnoff to Solent Street and the Ports of Auckland. Electronic messaging signs can display messages, warnings or information about specific events to road users. Please note that the positioning of the sign is not set and will be determined on-site once its power source is secure.
The electronic messaging sign will improve road user safety for people travelling along Tamaki Drive, and onto other destinations, as it can forewarn drivers of traffic congestion, accidents, speed limits and road work zones. The sign is being installed alongside footpath and cycleway improvements, to reduce the impact of construction happening on Tamaki Drive.
October 2021. The planned construction date is subject to Covid-19 alert levels, construction can begin in alert level 3.  Download the project drawing (PDF 6.46MB)
Dawson Road, Schnapper Road In response to a request from Snells Beach School, we are planning to install No Stopping at Certain Hours parking restrictions outside of Snells Beach School on school days during school pick-up and drop-off hours (8.30am – 9.30am and 2.30pm – 3.30pm). These works are scheduled for December 2021. Download the project drawing (PDF 291KB)
Miranda Street, Otira Street, Ruahine Street, Avondale Auckland Transport is making some changes to improve road safety at the intersection of Miranda Street, Otira Street, Ruahine Street by installing new stop controls as well as broken yellow lines. These works are scheduled for the end of October. Download the project drawing (PDF 264KB)
Georgina Street, Freemans Bay In response to a request from residents, we are planning to extend the broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) outside Costley Reserve on Georgina Street in Freemans Bay to improve accessibility and safety for road users, especially drivers of rubbish trucks and emergency vehicles. This will result in the removal of approximately 3 on-street parking spaces on this narrow road. November-December 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 623KB)
Piccadilly Place, Kohimarama We are planning to paint approximately 50 metres of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) on the west side of Piccadilly Place, outside 19 Rawhitiroa Road and remove the existing no stopping restriction that applies from 2:30pm to 3:30pm on the east side of the street, outside 27 Rawhitiroa Road and 2 Piccadilly Place. These changes are in response to a request from residents to improve accessibility on Piccadilly Place at all times as it is a narrow road. These works are scheduled to be implemented by the end of November 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 520KB)
Powell Street, Avondale An At investigation has revealed an issue of vehicles parking inside the head of the cul-de-sac of Powell Street. This causes accessibility issues and blocks turning access for emergency services and rubbish collection services. We are planning to install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) on Powell Street inside the head of the cul-de-sac, resulting in the loss of approximately 1 parking space. October 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 290KB)
Great South Road, Epsom We are planning to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) outside of 71 Great South Road, Epsom. This will result in the removal of 4 parking spaces. These changes are in response to a request from the New Zealand Blood Service who have had many customers complaining about the poor visibility when exiting 71 Great South Road. The lack of clear sightlines has caused a number of near misses at this location. Therefore, we are planning to install broken yellow lines outside of 71 Great South Road to improve visibility and road safety. October 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 212KB)
Hall Street, Pukekohe
We have received requests from the community and the Franklin Local Board to make changes to some time-restricted parking spaces on Hall Street. We are changing the time-restricted parking spaces in front of 7A Hall Street from P10 (10-minute time limit) to P60 (one-hour time limit). The community has told us that since the post office left this location, the short-term parking restrictions no longer make sense for the new businesses. Changing the P10 parking restrictions to P60 will better meet the needs of the community and businesses nearby, allowing people more time to park and shop. November 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 360KB)
Mount Eden Road, Grafton
Our recent proposal to convert two paid parking spaces into a P5 Loading Zone (goods vehicles only) at no.23 Mount Eden Road, Grafton, is not proceeding. The proposal will not be proceeding due to opposing external feedback received. Local businesses highlighted to Auckland Transport that they require the two paid parking spaces for their customers and are currently using another loading zone and therefore do not require an additional one on Mount Eden Road. We value the community’s response and are therefore not proceeding with the project. This project is not proceeding Download the project drawing (PDF 220KB)
Coatesville-Riverhead Highway, Riverhead We will be applying P15 (maximum 15 minutes) parking restrictions and repainting the parking spaces and outside of Riverhead Mini Market. These restrictions will help to improve the turnover and availability for customers wanting to park short-term whilst visiting the nearby businesses. September - October 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 196KB)
Barkes Place, Mount Roskill Customers have asked us to address the issue of vehicles parking along the road and inside the head of the cul-de-sac of Barkes Place. This causes accessibility issues for residential driveways, blocking turning access for emergency services and waste collection services. We are planning to install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) on Barkes Place between the entrance of No 13 and No 7, resulting in the loss of approximately 5 parking spaces. September 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 267KB)
Maskell Street and Vale Road, St Heliers We are planning to install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) at the intersection of Maskell Street and Vale Road, St Heliers, outside 90 and 91 Vale Road. This will involve the loss of 5 parking spaces. We have received community feedback regarding safety concerns at the intersection of Maskell Street and Vale Road. There were 9 reported crashes from 2016 to 2021 at this intersection. These changes to install broken yellow lines will improve visibility for drivers travelling from Vale Road. These works are scheduled for October-December 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 763KB)
Carr Road, Mt Roskill We are planning to reinstate 11 metres of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) outside 20-28 Carr Road, Mt Roskill. This will remove 2 parking spaces. Broken yellow lines had been previously painted outside 20-28 Carr Road to ensure that the high volume of vehicles entering and exiting the shared driveway to the properties could do so safely. However, the broken yellow lines were removed as part of the Mount Roskill Safer Community programme. Businesses at these properties have asked for the broken yellow lines to be reinstated to improve driver visibility and ensure access to the driveway at all times.

Matakana Road, Matakana

In March 2021 we invited community feedback on our proposal to improve the safety of drivers on Matakana Road, Matakana. We are writing to you to inform you that this project is no longer going ahead.

An investigation by the Road Safety team identified a pattern of loss of control crashes in this location. In order to reduce the severity of loss of control crashes, one of the proposed safety improvements is to install a safety crash barrier. The proposed safety crash barrier is expected to increase the safety of motorists when using Matakana Road.

The Matakana Safety Crash Barrier project is no longer going ahead and has been put on hold. However, Auckland Transport will be investigating Matakana Road for a road improvement project between Melwood Drive and Green Road, which includes Matakana Road. Upon investigation findings, the appropriate safety improvements will be proposed for the whole corridor. The installation of this future proposal is subject to community consultation and funding availability at the time.

This project is no longer going ahead Download the project drawing (PDF 279KB)
Sandspit Road, Warkworth – Safety Crash Barrier In April 2021 we invited community feedback on our proposal to improve the safety of drivers on Sandspit Road, Warkworth. We are writing to you to inform you that this project is no longer going ahead due to opposing feedback received during a consultation with the community and budget constraints. Although the safety crash barrier will not be installed at this stage, we expect that the recently installed road surface treatment project on Sandspit Road will make the road safer for all motorists. This project is no longer going ahead. Download the project drawing (PDF 2.6MB)
Glenmall Place, Glen Eden We are painting zebra crossings at each of the 6 existing raised crossing points in Glenmall Place, Glen Eden. This will ensure people crossing have the right of way, improving safety for anyone crossing Glenmall Place. We will paint new road markings, upgrade street lighting and install new signage to support these crossings. August 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 3.8MB)
English Oak Drive, Schnapper Point – Broken Yellow Lines Type of work being done: Customers have asked us to address the issue of vehicles parking at the head of the cul-de-sac of English Oak Drive, blocking turning access for emergency services and waste collection services. We are planning to paint broken yellow lines to address this issue.
The changes we are planning:
  • To install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) at the head of the cul-de-sac English Oak Drive.
  • These changes will result in the loss of approximately 8 parking spaces.

Rutland Street, Auckland Central We have received requests from customers asking to provide a loading zone on Rutland Street, as there is a lack of loading zones in the area that are operational after 11am. We will be converting 9m of P180 motorcycle parking spaces to a P5 Loading Zone At All Times. September 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 220KB)
Albany Road, Herne Bay
We are improving accessibility on Albany Road in Herne Bay by installing a P180 mobility parking space. We have received multiple requests for mobility parking near Herne Bay Medical Centre which is on Albany Road. Currently, there are no mobility parking spaces nearby and people with accessibility needs who visit the medical centre or the local shops and restaurants have to park a long way away. We will change two existing P60 carparks into one P180 mobility parking space. October 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 253KB)
Kennedy Point Carpark, Donald Bruce Road, Surfdale We are making some changes to car parking spaces at Kennedy Point Wharf Carpark to create dedicated spaces for electric vehicles and motorbikes. These changes will support Vector and Electric Island Waiheke’s plans to install electric vehicle charging stations at the location.  September 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 186 KB)
Ivanhoe Road & Mountain View Road, Grey Lynn In response to a community request, we are painting broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) parking restrictions on the corner of Mountain View Road and Ivanhoe Road. These restrictions will ensure vehicles do not park on the corner of the intersection. Currently, when vehicles are parked on this corner drivers must cross the centre line to pass them, which greatly increases the chance of a head-on crash. This will result in the loss of two legal on-street parking spaces. These works are scheduled for October 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 170 kb)
St Marks Road, Remuera We have received several complaints from the community about vehicles parked on the berms obstructing the view of drivers exiting a driveway on St Marks Road. We are planning to install ‘No Stopping Off Roadway’ signs on the grass berms along the south side of St Marks Road, Remuera, between number 14 and the intersection with Great South Road. The signs will be installed at intervals of less than 100m as per Land Transport Rule: Transport Controls Devices 2004. In this case, most signs will be attached to lamp posts.

The new signs will prevent berm parking by making it clear to drivers that parking on the berms is prohibited. These changes will significantly improve the visibility for drivers entering and exiting driveways along this stretch of road and improve pedestrian safety.
September 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 224KB)
Swaffield Road, Papatoetoe Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board has requested changes to improve safety and visibility in Papatoetoe by installing “no stopping off roadway” signs along Swaffield Road. Installing ‘no stopping off roadway’ signs will stop vehicles from parking on the grass berm, which will improve pedestrian safety and accessibility to the footpath on Swaffield Road. In addition, vehicles parking on the berm block pedestrian’s visibility for approaching vehicles when using crossing facilities. It is important to Auckland Transport that everyone can access and use our facilities, from footpaths to crossings. These changes will help us create a more inclusive and safer region for all. These works have now been delayed due to Covid restrictions and are expected to be installed by end of September (subject to Covid restrictions)  Download the project drawing (PDF 327KB)
Waikumete Road, Glen Eden We have received requests from Glen Eden Fire Station at 4 Waikumete Road to address the issue of parked cars obstructing access to the property. We are making some minor improvements to ensure that firefighters are able to respond to emergencies promptly.
We are planning to install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) outside the fire station, resulting in the loss of 2 parking spaces. This will ensure that emergency response vehicles are able to promptly and safely enter and exit the fire station. We understand removing parking can be inconvenient, so we have minimised the removal while improving accessibility for fire trucks.
October 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 327KB)
Newell Street, Point Chevalier We received requests from the community to resolve the issue of parked cars at the no-exit end of Newell Street. We planned to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) at the no-exit end of Newell Street. This would have resulted in the loss of 4 parking spaces. This project will no longer be going ahead. We understand that local residents proposed and negotiated an alternative solution that enables the waste removal vehicles to safely turn around in the cul-de-sac. Due to the alternative solution, the original proposal is not necessary; however, we will continue to monitor the operation of waste removal vehicles going forward.  Not proceeding
Balmoral Road and Tenterden Avenue, Mount Eden We are upgrading the existing pram crossings, which are the short ramps that allow prams and wheelchairs to transition smoothly from the footpath to the roadway when crossing the road, at this intersection. We will also be installing tactile pavers on the ramps, which are yellow guidance paving markers to help guide visually impaired people to the intersection. In progress Download the project drawing (PDF 177KB)
Ti Rakau Drive, Northpark We are installing a "No U-turn" sign in response to a community request and an investigation by Auckland Transport. The sign will be placed in the middle of the intersection between Ti Rakau and Te Irirangi Drive, see project drawing. With the installation of the "No U-turn" sign, we aim to reduce the high number of u-turns and provide safer roads for the community in this area. October 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 505KB)
Riddell Road, St Heliers We have received community feedback about parked cars limiting the safe exit and entry of drivers travelling via the slip lane on Riddell Road, St Heliers. We are making changes to improve access and visibility for people using the slip lane. Changes include:
  • Extend the existing broken yellow lines outside 490 Riddell Road to the driveway of 488 Riddell Road.
  • Paint 6 metres of new broken yellow lines on the north side of the slip lane exit.
  • Paint 'BUS STOP' text within the existing painted bus stop marking and repaint the existing marking.
  • Paint 9 metres of new broken yellow lines from the southern side of the bus stop to allow for the bus to safely pull out of the bus stop and back onto the road.
Scheduled for completion by September 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 705KB)
Totara Road, Whenuapai We were planning to install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) outside of 178 Totara Road. The proposal included the removal of 1 parking space to improve visibility for vehicles turning right onto Totara Road from Maramara Road.

During recent investigations, we found that Auckland Council and Auckland Transport had approved the installation of broken yellow lines outside 174-178 Totara Road as part of resource consent and engineering plans; however, the work was not carried out by the property developer.

Therefore, we will be painting broken yellow lines outside 174-178 Totara Road. This will remove approximately 3 parking spaces. We understand removing parking can be inconvenient, so we have minimised the removal while improving visibility for vehicles turning right onto Totara Road from Maramara Road.

Omaha Drive, Omaha We are installing a 2.5-metre wide concrete walkway along the western side of Omaha Drive, Omaha. This walkway will extend from Broadlands Drive to North West Anchorage (approximately 850 metres) terminating at the golf club car park. November 2021 Download the project drawing (PDF 2.88MB)
O'Rorke Street, Onehunga We are making some changes to improve access and safety by removing two parking spaces on O’Rorke Street near the corner with Neilson Street. We will extend the existing broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times lines) from the corner of O’Rorke and Neilson Street to the driveway of 11 O’Rorke Street. This will remove two on-street parking spaces. These changes were requested because there is a truck driving school on O’Rorke Street whose drivers have difficulty turning in and out of their driveway when there are cars in these parking spaces. We understand that removing parking is inconvenient, but we will be removing the minimum to create space for safe access for the large trucks that enter and exit O’Rorke Street.
