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.

Auckland Transport (AT) is progressing its Safe School Streets programme with Milford School into the next phase.


These changes include:

Otakau Road

  • Drop off and pick up zone with purple painted kerb replacing on-street parking at 17-19 Otakau Road. The zone will operate from 8am – 9am and 2.30pm – 3.30pm. During these times, parking will not be available as the intention is for parents to pull in to safely pick-up or drop-off children to school.
  • Rubber speed cushion and road narrowing to slow speeds outside 15-17 and 16-18 Otakau Road.
  • Extending no stopping lines outside 2/5, 21, 24 and 26 Otakau Road.

Fenwick Avenue

  • Raised crossing south of the intersection with Otakau Road.
  • A raised table Kea crossing at 10 Fenwick, south of the intersection with Otakau Road. A Kea crossing is only operational when operated with school patrol signs.
