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.

Your local knowledge gave us a better understanding of the area and helped us make improvements.
We received 65 submissions (feedback responses), thank you to everyone who gave feedback on this consultation.
Construction of these road safety improvement measures is planned to begin in April 2019.
The contractors will soon be in touch with local residents to provide more details on the construction timelines and potential impacts.
