Way safer for everyone

We’re supporting Road to Zero - New Zealand’s road safety strategy for 2020-2030.

We need to create a safe transport system; one that recognises humans make mistakes and is designed so that these mistakes do not need to cost us our lives.

Speed is the biggest determining factor to how much harm is caused in a crash, so if we can reduce speeds on the approach to high risk locations we can reduce the risk of fatal and serious injury crashes. 

We want everyone to get where they are going safely.  

What we are doing

We are installing raised safety platforms on all four approaches to the intersection. These platforms are like long speed bumps designed to slow traffic to give people time to react and avoid a crash. If a crash does happen the impact is less severe at lower speeds.

We are also:

  • Improving  the cycle lanes within the intersection and adding advanced cycle stop boxes on all approaches.
  • Installing a new median island at the intersection, combining the left and through lanes and moving the cycle lane to the kerbside on Lake Terrace Road.
  • Building out the kerb on the southeast corner to slow vehicles turning left out of Lake Terrace Road, making it safer for pedestrians.

If approved, construction will start around May 2023.
