Auckland Transport (AT) will be making road safety improvements on local residential streets in the Te Atatu South area to provide a safer environment for all road users.
Project status: Consultation - feedback is open until 18 November 2018.
Project zone: West.
What we identified in Te Atatu South
We have identified various areas for road safety improvements, Te Atatu South has been prioritised based on these factors:
- Safety concerns raised by local residents.
- Local crash data shows 31 crashes in the project area.
- Vehicle speeds on key roads in Te Atatu South are in excess of the current speed limit.
- The highest speed recorded was in excess of 121km/h on School Road and Flanshaw Road.
- Location of schools, local shops, community facilities and parks, where people walk and cycle frequently.

Planned road safety improvements
To reduce vehicle speeds on local residential streets in Te Atatu South we are planning on installing a combination 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 and some bus stops will be relocated, 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.
We will make these improvements south-west of the North-Western Motorway, bound by Te Atatu and Edmonton roads to the south and Central Park Drive and Henderson Creek to the west. This project does not include Te Atatu Road, Edmonton Road and Central Park Drive as these are arterial roads.

Construction is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2019. Find out how you can give feedback about these road safety improvements.
These improvements are part of AT's commitment to reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries on our roads by 60% over the next 10 years. This project is partly funded by the Regional Fuel Tax.
Before we make these changes, we wanted 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. Your local knowledge will give us a better understanding of the area and help us make improvements.
