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. In 2019 a 3m wide shared path was constructed along Blake Park. We're continuing with similar projects between Sutherland Road and Golf Road. 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 over the next four years, depending on the location.

Construction proposed for July 2021 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.
