Safe School Streets

Safe School Streets is a pilot programme that Auckland Transport (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.

AT 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. However, those mistakes should not mean someone dies or is seriously injured on our roads.


Sunnyhills School

During the 2021 April school holiday period, AT has installed some changes that align with feedback received from the one-day trial and co-design sessions with Sunnyhills School and the community.

The Safe School Streets Programme is a trial, so these changes are temporary and able to be adapted or removed. Following feedback from the school and the community we have already made changes to the original temporary design including:

  • removal of the no-entry into the Crest
  • removal of some flexible bollards on the Boulevard
  • adding flexible bollards between the speed cushions.

Other changes being trialled include:

Fordyce Avenue

  • A temporary roundabout at the Fordyce Avenue/Stansfield Place intersection.
  • Planter boxes beside the raised pedestrian crossing to encourage safe vehicle speeds.
  • Flexible bollards to narrow the intersections near Suzetta Place and Pennycook Place to encourage safe vehicle speeds.
  • A speed bump and planter boxes between Pennycook Place and Glenmore Road (near 3 Fordyce Ave).

Suzetta Place/ Stansfield Place/ Pennycook Place

  • A drop off and pick up only area, indicated by a purple painted kerb and interim signage. Residents are exempt however we are asking parents and caregivers not to park between 8:30am to 9:15am and 2:30pm to 3:30pm.

The Crest

  • A drop off and pick up only area, indicated by a purple painted kerb and interim signage. Residents are exempt however we are asking parents and caregivers not to park between 8:30am to 9:15am and 2:30pm to 3:30pm.
  • A speed bump outside 19 and 10 The Crest in the lead up to the school.

The Boulevard

  • A speed bump and flexible bollards near 43 and 25/27 The Boulevard.
  • Flexible bollards near the intersection of Treeway.
