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.


AT is installing some temporary trial measures which align with the outcomes of co-design sessions with Viscount Primary School and the school community.


Idlewild Avenue

  • New speed cushions and flexible bollards to narrow the carriageway outside 68 and 73 Idlewild Avenue.
  • Flexible bollards to narrow the intersection near Viscount Street to encourage safe vehicle speeds.

Viscount Street

  • A new painted school threshold at each approach to the school to formalise the school zone (near 64 - 73 and 59 – 46/48 Viscount Street).
  • Flexible bollards to narrow the carriageway to encourage safe vehicle speeds (58, 56, 54 – 67, 65 Viscount Street and 1 Fairey Place).
  • New speed humps (near 60 - 69, 63R, 50 - 31 Viscount Street and 1 Fairey Place).
  • Flexible bollards to narrow the intersections near Fairey Place and Solent Crescent to encourage safe vehicle speeds.
  • Raise existing zebra crossing near 56 - 67 Viscount Street.
