Local Streets for Local People

Thank you to all who have been engaging with the Eastview LTA trail. We continue to work with contractors to remove excess boxes and beautify the look and feel of the installations. Register for weekly updates here.

Dawn blessing of the Eastview project on Friday, 11 June.


The Eastview Low Traffic Area is a project to enhance road safety for many Glen Innes residents. It will trial some possible solutions and test new ideas, which if successful may become more permanent.

The Eastview Low Traffic area will:

  • reduce traffic speeds and volumes on certain residential streets
  • improve walking and cycling connections in the neighbourhood.

High traffic speeds are common on several streets in the concerned area, increasing the risks to many of our most vulnerable residents. This area includes two primary schools, several churches, and early childcare centres.

Who is behind the project

The project is funded through the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency's Innovating Streets Programme and will be delivered by the Maungakiekie Tāmaki Local Board, supported by Auckland Transport.

What we want feedback on

We want to hear what it's like living on the streets within the proposed Low Traffic Area and how residents feel about road safety, traffic speeds/volumes and sense of community. We will work with residents throughout the project to come up with possible improvements.

The final design could include:

  • places where the road narrows
  • road designs that restrict the passage of certain vehicles
  • road art
  • mini-roundabouts
  • planter boxes
  • changes to the road layout.

  • We are trialing some temporary interventions to the street layout in Glen Innes as part of a Low Traffic Neighbourhood trial funded by the Waka Kotahi Innovating Streets(External link) fund. The goal of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods is to redirect cars from narrow residential streets back on to main arterial roads in order to create quieter local streets where people feel it is safer and more pleasant to walk or cycle.  

    The streets in the Eastview Low Traffic Area is bounded by Apirana Avenue, Eastview Road, Line Road, West Tāmaki Road, and St Hellier's Bay Road in Glen Innes.  

    Tell us what you think of the changes being trialed. Your feedback will help us to understand the impacts of the changes, both positive and negative, and inform the next phase of this project.
