Creating safer streets - help shape Tyler Street

A new pilot project 'Creating Safer Streets – Tyler Street’ is beginning soon to enhance the pedestrian amenity of Tyler Street. This project has been awarded funding through the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Innovating Streets Programme, and will be delivered by Auckland Council.

What kind of changes are possible?

The Britomart precinct has been developed into a dynamic and diverse area where pedestrian movement has been giving priority, and Tyler Street is the next section to be transformed. Tyler Street is a well-used thoroughfare and is home to popular food outlets and retail. It is a street with great attractions but shopfronts are often hidden behind parked vehicles along the street, and narrow footpaths result in people having to walk on the road.

The pilot project has the potential to transform Britomart's Tyler Street by trialing more space for pedestrians and by creating a more attractive environment for business owners, workers, residents, and visitors to enjoy.

The pilot project will work with users of the street to shape what these improvements could look like. The project will use tactical urbanism interventions to test different layout solutions and activities to bring the street to life.
