Safe School Streets

Safe School Streets 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 main themes that emerged from the co-design workshops and surveys were that the area around Mangere Central School should be a safer environment for school children while still accommodating pick-up and drop off needs. Local services, such as rubbish collection, would also need to be unhindered.

The temporary measures currently in place around Mangere Central School are:


Staverton Crescent

  • Asphalt speed humps (near 10, 21, 23 – 34, 47, 49 – 26 Starveton Crescent and 2 Desford Place).


Desford Place

  • Flexible bollards to create a pinch point outside 3-5,2-4 Desford Place.
  • A drop off and pick up only for parents of Mangere Central school. Residents are exempt; however, we are advising parents and caregivers not to park between 8.30am - 9.15am and 2.30pm - 3.30pm, indicated by a purple painted kerb and interim signage.
  • A mini roundabout and a pocket and the cul-de-sac of Desford Place (near 13, 14, 18 and 20 Desford Place)


Kirkbride Road

  • A painted school threshold at each approach of the school to formalise the school zone (near 244s-237 and 250-241 Kirkbride Road).


Naylors Drive

  • Flexible bollards to narrow the intersection near Kirkbride Road/Massey Road to encourage safe vehicle speeds.
  • New speed humps (near 5R Naylors Drive).


Thomas Road

  • Flexible bollards to narrow the intersection near Massey Road to encourage safe vehicle speeds.


What happens next

A decision will be made about whether the temporary design should be retained and the trial progresses to a permanent design. If it is decided to progress the trial to a permanent design, the temporary measures will remain in place until the permanent scheme is implemented.

A full consultation will take place before any permanent changes are implemented.
