We’re investing in Manurewa & Māngere to give the community lower cost travel choices which includes short walking & cycling distances to schools, local shops and public transport. By doing so, we can build a transport system that’s sustainable for the next generation.

Creating safe and attractive walkable neighbourhoods, including new and improved footpaths and safe crossings requested by schools and the community.
Pedestrian Crossing Improvements
The provision of improved crossing facilities supports and encourages active travel around local communities.
Most of the projects being delivered in the Manurewa CERF package use raised crossings that are level with the footpath. Raised pedestrian crossings have a proven safety record and align with Auckland Transport’s Vision Zero policy and fit well with encouraging active modes journeys as part of the drive to reduce vehicle emissions and meet Auckland Council’s Climate policies. Being raised provides pedestrians with improved visibility to see approaching vehicles and allows drivers to better see pedestrians waiting to cross.
Survey is open until 18 September.
Our project will be working to improve access train stations, along with upgrades to bus infrastructure. That includes additional shelters, seating etc.
Accelerating the delivery of safe, connected cycleways to key destinations (schools, local shops and train stations). Along with that, we will be implementing initiatives that cause growth in numbers to those choosing to cycle, such as bike training and bike hubs!
Map overview of the focus area for transport system improvements
This project provides cycle separator protection to existing cycleways and improvements to intersections along each of the corridors (Great South Road, Weymouth Road and Browns Road).
The protection of existing cycle facilities (or pop-up cycleways) is a programme of quick interventions focussed on the strategic network and arterials to physically separate cycle lanes from traffic lanes.
We encourage you to tell us your feedback by completing the online survey above. If you want to come in person to ask a question or give us feedback on the design, drop into one of the following Community Information days:
- 20th September 2.30pm-4pm Manurewa Leisure Centre- 33 Frances St Manurewa
- 27th September 4.30pm-6pm Manurewa Sea Scout Hall, 53 Browns Road, Manurewa
Five schools participated in the Safe and healthy school streets - South Auckland programme in from November 2020 - February 2022. This programme was funded through the Waka Kotahi Innovating Streets Funding.
The objective of the programme was to work in close partnership with each school to both understand the issues regarding safety and active travel modes for school journeys.
The programmes aims were to:
- Build an environment to support more compliant and alert driving behaviours
- Make it more difficult to park illegally/unsafely outside the school gate
- Increase visibility of school children around the school
- Increase awareness of drivers that they are approaching a school environment
- Make the school environment more attractive for pedestrians and cyclists
- Achieve a safe system traffic speed where appropriate and make it more consistent

AT is upgrading the existing shared walking and cycling path that runs through Moyle and Mangere central park. This has been discussed and planned with the community for a number of years through various projects, however now with the Climate Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) – Transport Choices (TC) funding we are able to progress the project to delivery.
The proposal includes the upgrade of the existing path from Bader Drive, along SH20 to a 4m wide Shared Use Path (SUP) (approximately 1.1km) and installing a section of new SUP from the over bridge on Mangere Central Park (approximately 400m).
The objective of this project is to improve cycling links to existing and future proof for new cycle lanes, improve safety and enable cycling as a viable and environmentally friendly alternative mode of transport in Māngere.

These packages are a part of a wider range of improvement projects backed by the Climate Emergency Response Fund (CERF) – Transport Choices (TC). All projects are subject to a final delivery decision being made by Waka Kotahi.
With their backing, we’re able to
- provide communities across Tāmaki Makaurau with a wider range of efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable transport options.
- get people to their destinations and home safely and efficiently.
This package of projects will help address our current infrastructure deficit, future-proof for more population growth and address climate change.
All projects will need to be delivered prior to 30 June 2024, some of which will require formal consultation.
Construction timeline will be updated regularly on this page as we progress with our works. Affected residents will be informed prior to works commencing and will have the opportunity to raise queries and concerns.
