Bringing temporary changes to the central streets of Henderson

Last year through a series of
co-designHenderson locals giving feedback workshops, Henderson locals shared their ideas for ways to make central Henderson streets safer, more vibrant and less dominated by traffic. From 12 April to 30 June 2021 we're going to test some of these ideas through short-term changes on parts of Great North Road, Ratanui Street, Railside Ave, Waitakere Lane and Trading Place.


What are the temporary changes?

Map of HendersonHenderson Streets Trial Traffic Circulation MapThey include:

  • A trial traffic flow plan- where most traffic will be directed around the Henderson ‘ring road’ on Alderman Drive
  • A large artwork at the intersection of Great North Road, Railside Avenue and Ratanui Street
  • A trial of bus lanes leading into and out of the Henderson bus interchange on Railside Ave
  • An upgrade an existing crossing to trial a zebra crossing on Great North Road to give priority to people walking
  • A trial of safe shared paths to connect people walking, cycling and scootering through the centre of Henderson. Planters and buffers will be provided for protection from traffic
  • A trial parklet with outdoor chairs and tables outside the Zoo Bar and Café on Great North Road


What do you think about the temporary changes?

The temporary changes will be trialed between 12 April to 30 June 2021. During this time we will be collecting feedback based on the community’s experience so we can tweak changes before we assess its long-term future. Let us know your feedback on these temporary changes, by joining the discussion through the forum, or fill in the feedback form (live once the installations are in place).


What has happened to date?

In December 2020 we opened a Pop Up Shop on Railside Ave. During the two week period, 79 locals dropped in and participated in our co-design workshops. We received in total 500 pieces of feedback from 150 locals at the Henderson Christmas Festival and several other local events. The input gained has given us valuable insights for the project. Check out the February 2021 update under the documents section.

This is a great idea Getting vehicles away from pedestrians is the way the world is going. (not like Westgate though. I have photos of Westgate where cars are parked all over the pedestrian footpaths, and most cars that do drive through do not adhere to the recommended speed limit. I do remember in Waitakere Council days that they did try a pedestrian part of main street, but it kept the people away from the local shops because they just drove straight to the shopping mall's
and business sagged.
