The Nga Tiriti Ngangahau project involves installing safety improvements like:
- upgraded crossings
- speed humps to slow traffic
- better signage
- additional lighting.
This project aims to:
- get more tamariki walking or cycling to school
- reduce car trips to school by the local community, which will lower congestion at the school gate and cut air pollution
- build trust with parents and tamariki that it’s safe and enjoyable to walk and cycle to school using local streets and walkways.
This project will take place across 5 stages:
- test and trial
This involves building relationships with the school and surrounding community.
We'll find out:
- Who needs to be involved in this project?
- What role will they be taking on?
Kо̄rero with parents, tamariki, community members
- What are the current concerns, behaviours, and needs?
- How can we get more kids riding, walking, and scootering to school?
- What's feasible for us to deliver together?
- What kind of opportunities are there?
- How could we make the biggest impact?
Feedback from whānau and community
Test and trial
- Measuring the effectiveness of these solutions, how are they working?
- Are the solutions making a difference?
- What might we need to change?
- How long will these solutions be in place?
- What change or impact are we seeing over time?
The first stage of the cycleway project is part of Auckland Council’s Ngā Tiriti Ngangahau (NTN) - The Vibrant Streets Programme. We will deliver this project.
NTN is aligned to Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan. The plan aims to reduce transport emissions by improving access to active modes (such as cycling or walking) and infrastructure.
In the 2021 to 2031 10-year Budget, Auckland Council allocated $152 million of new spending on climate change initiatives over 10 years.
NTN is a $3 million, 3 year programme covering 7 projects across Auckland. We are delivering this programme as part of this climate action package.
