Residents and motorists have raised concerns about safety at the intersection of Wairakei and Grahams roads. To improve safety here we’re making changes to the road layout.
We’ve made a decision on the Wairakei Road/Grahams Road Intersection: Proposed Safety Improvements
Thanks for taking the time to let us know your views about the Wairakei Road/Grahams Road Intersection: Proposed Safety Improvements. The Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board decided to approve the proposal on 15 June 2020. Council then approved the associated cycle lane elements of the proposal on 9 July 2020.
In approving the proposal, the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board included the following resolution:

We expect construction to begin in August 2020.
Consultation on the Wairakei and Grahams Roads intersection safety improvements proposal has now closed and we received feedback from 51 individuals and groups. You can find more information here:
There have been four serious crashes in the last five years at this intersection. In 2018 there was also a serious pedestrian accident and Council have been requested to also improve safety for pedestrians at this intersection.
The current layout has both turning and straight ahead arrows in each lane approaching the intersection. This increases the likelihood of drivers changing between lanes, often without indication, to move around right-turning traffic.
We will also remark an existing bus stop on Wairakei Road while we are working in the area.
We are going to realign the lanes, from two shared lanes to a dedicated right turn and a shared left-turn/straight-through lane on each approach. This will improve traffic flow and reduce poor driver behaviour.
We’re also improving pedestrian and cyclist safety by introducing fully protected pedestrian phases across all approaches, and with the changes, newly painted cycle lanes can be included due to the additional road space.
We are also extending the no-stopping restrictions on both sides of the road on all four approaches.
Before the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board make their decision on these changes, we want to know what you think.
