Papatoetoe West Streets for People

Happening now

Open for feedback

About Papatoetoe West Streets for People

​We want to work with you to trial people friendly spaces and safer ways to travel in west Papatoetoe.

This could include:

  • creating more fun, thriving spaces for people to spend time
  • making it easier, more accessible, and safer to move around on bike, foot or public transport.

This project has been funded through the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency's Innovating Streets Programme, and will be delivered by Auckland Transport.

Similar projects in Auckland can be seen on Federal Street and Sale Street in the city centre and are coming soon to Ponsonby Road and Onehunga.


What the trial could include

Changes could include:

  • reducing speeds for vehicles
  • safer crossing opportunities
  • options to prevent traffic from using a residential road as a through road
  • bike routes.

We could achieve these with:

  • temporary street furniture
  • artwork
  • planters.

What we want your feedback on

We want to hear from the people who live, work, and play in Papatoetoe about issues and the opportunities you see for making west Papatoetoe more people friendly.

The project area has not yet been defined. Help us by telling us which streets you would prioritise.

How you can have your say
