Project area in Māngere East What is happening to the streets of Māngere East?


This project aims to make walking easier and safer in this part of Māngere East. The local community has told us that walking and crossing roads in the project area can feel difficult and unsafe.

The project team, including ME Family services and a community working group, has come up with some ideas for temporary pop-up street improvements that would make walking safer and easier for residents and visitors in the community.

Pop-up street improvements such as: pavement art, planters, public seating and speed humps, allow us to test low-cost ideas and change them if needed.

Has the community been consulted yet?

Throughout March and April, we held three co-design workshops to invite the local community to have their say, and activations have taken place within the project area to give an insight into what the trial will look like.
