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. 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.

As part of the Safe School Streets programme, Auckland Transport (AT) has installed a number of temporary safety improvements around Ōwairaka District School. These are being trialled to understand what permanent improvements may be introduced.


We are seeking feedback from residents about the changes and the impact they are having.


The changes trialled at Ōwairaka District School include:

  • Drop-off and pick-up/park and walk zones. Parents/caregivers have been encouraged to drop children off at a number of promoted drop-off zones away from the school gate.
  • Restricted parking. Parking has been restricted on the school side of Richardson Road, with parents and caregivers encouraged during drop off/pick up times to use the zones referred to above.
  • Unlocked gate. The school gate located in Murray Halberg Park will be unlocked and opened during the interim phase. Entry via this school gate is the quickest way to get to school from Murray Halberg Park and Alamein Terrace.
  • Traffic calming. On-road treatments to slow traffic have been installed outside the school.


What happens next?

Auckland Transport and their research partners will analyse the feedback and use it to help refine the proposal.

Based on the feedback from the school and community around the interim changes, we’ll refine the designs and confirm whether or not the temporary changes will be made permanent. If confirmed, construction of the proposed permanent changes is likely to take place in 2022, subject to funding.

If you have any questions or want to discuss this proposal further, please contact us at ATengagement@at.govt.nz
