Manurewa (Area 2) Road Safety Improvement is the second area-wide speed calming project in Manurewa.
We aim to reduce vehicle speeds by installing a combination of speed-calming measures such as speed humps, raised tables, roundabouts and zebra crossings where justified.
The improvements are for the area contained by Mahia Road, Great South Road and Weymouth Road, as shown on the map below.
Find out how we will make our streets safer with our Residential Speed Management programme.
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 and supported by the Manurewa Local Board.
Following consultation in March 2021, Auckland Transport has engaged Fulton Hogan and Ventia to install speed-calming measures in Manurewa, starting January 2022.

What we identified in Manurewa (Area 2)
We have identified various areas for road safety improvements. Manurewa (Area 2) has been prioritised based on these factors:
- Safety concerns raised by residents
- Local Crash Analysis System (CAS) data – 131 crashes in the last five years. A crash map for the area can be found here (PDF 459KB)
- Vehicle speeds on key roads in Manurewa (Area 2) are in excess of the current speed limits
- The three highest speeds recorded were in excess of 121km/h on Rimu Road, McDivitt Street and Coxhead Road
- Location of community facilities (schools, shops, parks and community centres).
The speed calming measures chosen for the area will help to create a slower speed environment, which is safer for everyone. This will help to reduce the risks of accidents, serious injuries and death as well as make the streets safer for pedestrians, encouraging people to walk and cycle more.
Road safety improvements
The project aims to reduce vehicle speeds on local residential streets in Manurewa (Area 2) we are planning on installing a combination of speed calming measures including:
- raised table zebra crossings
- raised Swedish-style speed tables
- standard raised tables
- speed humps
- entry treatment in the form of red-coloured surfacing.
The improvements will require the removal of 8 to 10 car parks where zebra crossings and raised tables are being installed, and the movement of some bus stops and intersections, for safety and visibility reasons.
Our transportation engineers have selected the type and location of each proposed safety measure based on a variety of criteria. These include:
- Proximity to schools or other locations where there are a higher number of people walking or on bikes.
- International best practice guidelines for positioning measures to reduce speed in residential areas.
- Space available between driveways and/or bus stops.
- Whether roads are bus routes.
We consulted on this proposal from 11 February to 31 March 2021 to improve our plan for these road safety improvements. Your local knowledge has given us a better understanding of the area and your needs and has helped us improve the design.
We asked whether you:
- have any thoughts on the proposed road safety improvements.
- have any suggested changes to the proposed road safety improvements.
- have any other comments or suggestions to improve road safety in this area of Manurewa.
Consultation decisions and recommendations
We received feedback from the general public and key interest groups. We have made changes to the proposal in response to the feedback received.
The overall summary of changes:
- We removed a total of 28 speed humps
- We replaced 18 speed humps with 9 roundabouts
- We replaced 10 speed humps on Coxhead Road with speed cushions
Below is an overview map of the updated proposal and an accompanying table of specific locations and changes.

Construction is planned to commence January 2022 (dependant on weather Auckland’s COVID alert levels). We will be in touch with local residents and business prior to any construction taking place.
Monitoring surveys are planned for 2022 to understand effects and public perceptions of the improvement measures.
