Local Streets for Local People

Review the Stage 1 Design now, and share your feedback and thoughts with us.

Project update

Great day out at our bike skills workshop and community event last month to talk about our draft designs for Eastview stage 1 low traffic area. Thanks to Bigfoot Adventures and Ecomatters BikeHub,and especially to our tamariki and members of our community who were able to join us and give feedback.

What this project is all about

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.
