Wiri Central School

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.

The main themes that emerged from the co-design workshops and surveys were that the area around Wiri Central School should be;

A safer environment for school children while still accommodating pick-up and drop off needs. Local services, such as rubbish collection, would also need to be unhindered.


Proposed Temporary Changes

Inverell Avenue

A new roundabout at the intersection with Iona Place.

Shift the car parking of the Inverell Superette (36 Inverell Avenue) to create a safe space for pedestrians to walk.

Flexible bollards to narrow the intersections near Ixia Place and Iliad Place.

New painted school threshold at each approach to the school to formalise the school zone (near 6-9 and 27-30 Inverell Avenue).

A new median island to provide a safer crossing for children near 18, 26–23 Inverell Avenue.

New speed humps (near 6-9 and 27-30 Inverell Avenue).

A drop off and pick up only area for parents and caregivers. Residents are exempt, however we are advising parents and caregivers not to park between 8.30am - 9.15am and 2.30pm - 3.30pm, indicated by a purple painted kerb and interim signage.


Trevor Hosken Drive

New speed humps (near 17A-60/62 and 39-82 Trevor Hosken Drive).

Flexible bollards to narrow the intersections near Granite Place and Topaz Place.

A new raised courtesy crossing to provide safer passage for pedestrians near 27-70 Trevor Hosken Drive.
