Maunganui Road safety improvements

We’re making Maunganui Road safer and more attractive.

Maunganui Road is a local road and we’re aiming to create a calmer, safer environment for everyone who travels through the area. We will design traffic lanes and roundabouts in a way that encourages people who are driving to naturally reduce their speed. 

This work started in 2017 with improvements between Tawa Street and Sutherland Road and a wide shared path along Blake Park was constructed in 2019. In early 2022 we'll continue with similar improvements between Golf Road and Tui Street. The projects include traffic calming, safer biking facilities, pedestrian crossing points, new roundabouts and more greenery in centre strips along the road.

It's all proposed to be constructed by 2024, depending on the location.

Work now complete

Includes increased parking spaces, two new roundabouts, a 3m shared pathway, and improved connections to other cycle paths.

  • formalised car parking, change some to angle parking and provide more than 160 additional parking spaces at Blake Park and the Mount Action Centre
  • 3m wide shared footpath/cycleway adjacent Blake Park
  • new Blake Park/Bay Oval entrance and footpath link.
  • new roundabouts at Clyde Street and Tay Street
  • solid grassed median strip with trees/plantings
  • improved pedestrian crossing points
  • road resurfacing with asphaltic concrete
  • new streetlighting
  • new roadmarkings.

Proposed for January to June 2022

Includes a new two-way separated cycleway and a solid grassed median strip. Hundreds of students use this area every day to get to school. Providing physically separated cycleways with easy access to the schools is an important part of improving safety for everyone who travels through this area.

  • solid grassed median strip with trees/plantings
  • two-way physically separated cycleway on the beach side of the road
  • connection into the proposed cycleway on Golf Road
  • new round-about at Tui Street
  • on-road bike lane on the railway side of the road.

This proposal provides the option to add in a bus lane in the future. There will be no change to the numbers of car parks provided in this location.

This work was planned as phase 3 but has been brought forward.

  • two-way physically separated cycleway on the beach side of the road
