Safe School Streets

Safe School Streets (SSS) is a pilot programme that AT is trialling with a number of schools around Auckland. The programme sees temporary measures introduced around a school before any long-term solutions are implemented. The changes are designed to increase safety outside schools, reduce the number of vehicles during peak times and encourage more students and their families to walk and cycle to and from school each day.

Auckland Transport is taking a Vision Zero approach to road safety. This means we are striving to have zero deaths or serious injuries on our transport system by 2050. To achieve this, we are working to create a more forgiving road network that recognises that we are human and make mistakes. But those mistakes should not mean someone dies or is seriously injured on our roads.

The temporary measures currently in place are:

  • School zone markings, flexible bollards as well as new speed cushion pads which act as a visual cue to drivers that they are entering a slow speed area
  • A new drop-off and pick-up zone inside the Glenfield Primary School carpark indicated by a purple painted kerb and signage
  • Painted road art with a unique theme chosen by Glenfield Primary School which will help emphasise the presence of school children in the area
  • Pedestrian wayfinding street art chosen by Glenfield Primary School to help direct the flow of foot traffic, particularly when children are arriving and leaving
  • A sign installed by the bend in Chivalry Road, to encourage pedestrians to use the zebra crossing outside the school.

We have used material and colours that enhance the vibrancy of the area. This serves both as an effective visual queue to motorists, that they are entering an area with lots of people moving around, and to add to the character of Glenfield Primary school and its surrounding neighbourhoods.

The SSS programme follows a consultation by trial approach, where changes can be made to temporary measures, to help inform the design of any future possible permanent measures. A decision will be made on whether the Glenfield trial progresses to permanent by the end of 2021. The current temporary design will remain in place as is, until the decision is made.

Before any measures are made permanent at Glenfield Primary, a full consultation will take place. It is important to note that the temporary measures may remain in place after this decision is made, during the consultation and up until the time the permanent scheme is implemented.

Thank you to all those who have provided feedback to date, this will be considered when making the retention decision.
