Safe School Streets community day

Auckland Transport are undertaking a programme of street improvements around selected schools through the Safe School Streets project.

Currently all of the schools have a variable 40kph speed zone. Auckland Transport would like to trial the reduction of the operating speed to 30kph. This will become particularly important if the proposed speed bylaw changes go ahead which would see the base speed drop to 40kph at many of the sites.  The vision for the case study is improved real and perceived safety of streets near school entrances for all road users, increase active school travel and reduce congestion on the network

The schools for the case study are:

  • Rutherford Primary – Kotuku St, Te Atatu
  • Owairaka Area School – Richardson Road, Mt Albert
  • Milford Primary – Shakespeare Road, Takapuna
  • Willow Park – Compton Street, Hillcreast
  • Sunnyhills Primary – Fordyce Ave, Pakuranga.
