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.


These changes include:

Otakau Road

  • Rubber speed cushion and road narrowing to slow speeds outside 15-17 and 16-18 Otakau Road.
  • Painted footpath art (wayfinding) to encouraging walking and scooting and show the route to the back gate.

Fenwick Avenue

  • 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.
  • Road art and flexible orange bollards on the corner of Fenwick and Otakau next to the Kea Crossing.
  • Painted footpath art (wayfinding) to encouraging walking and scooting and show the route to the back gate.


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.

In Term 1 we gathered a range of information as school traffic patterns returned to normal after the Covid lockdowns. We are evaluating the data and will make a decision about which parts of the trial to keep in place. We are expecting to make this decision by the end of June.

The retention decision has been delayed by data collection and we are currently forecasting the retention decision will be finalised by the end of June.

Before any measures are made permanent at Milford 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.
