Project status: Consultation - feedback is open until 25 November 2018.
Project zone: South.
What we identified in Rosehill, Papakura
Rosehill, Papakura has been prioritised for road safety improvements based on these factors:
- Safety concerns raised by local residents.
- Local crash data shows 51 crashes in the last 5 years.
- Vehicle speeds on key roads in Rosehill being in excess of the current speed limit.
- The highest recorded speed in the project area was in excess of 121km/h.
- Location of community facilities such as schools.
Planned road safety improvements
To make streets in Rosehill, Papakura safer, we plan to install a number of speed calming measures such as:
- speed humps,
- speed tables (some may have zebra crossings),
- raised intersections,
- and entry signage.
Some parking may need to be removed as a result of these measures being installed, see detailed plans.
The proposed speed calming measures will also enable the speed limit in the project area to be reduced to 30km/h in the future - as a part of the upcoming speed limit bylaw change.

Before we make these changes, we want to understand if there are any issues or concerns that need to be taken into consideration, what you think about the proposal and any changes you would like to make.
