Speed reductions on around 700 Auckland roads will be decided this afternoon.
Some of the dangerous roads considered for the reductions include Dairy Flat Highway, Whitford Rd, Hobson St and Karangahape Rd.
People are divided on whether reductions should be enforced. What are your thoughts?
Auckland Transport are proposing changes to the Sunset Road/Target Road/Caribbean Drive roundabout, as well as other improvements on Sunset Road. The proposed changes include:
* Additional traffic lanes on all legs of the roundabout. Space for the extra lanes is being created by:
- Removing sections of on-street parking from all roundabout approaches and exits.
- Widening the road (kerb realignments on the east and north sides of the roundabout).
- Footpath realignments.
* Installation of Swedish Speed Tables on all roundabout approaches and exits.
* New pedestrian crossings over the Swedish Speed Tables. The pedestrian crossings include new pram crossings, and refuge islands halfway across the road. Pedestrians will still need to give-way to vehicles.
* New footpath connections and footpath widening.
* Installation of new pram crossings and a pedestrian refuge island outside 78/59A Sunset Road.
* Changes to bus stops and shelters. This includes two sections of on-street parking removal on Sunset Road just north of Trias Road:
- Relocate the bus stop from outside 49B Sunset Road, to outside 51 Sunset Road (approximately 10m closer the roundabout) and install a new bus shelter.
- Relocate the bus stop and shelter from outside 78 Sunset Road to outside 82 Sunset Road.
- Upgrade the existing bus stop at 57A Sunset Rd to meet the Auckland Transport Code of Practice

Danielle Grant, Melanie Jane Kenrick and I were privileged to attend the unveiling of the Le Roy's Picnic Photo at Birkenhead Library, followed by a talk on the history of the Le Roy family in Birkenhead, and the origins of Le Roy's Bush Reserve.
Make sure you stop to have a look at the photo at the Birkenhead Library foyer the next time you are nearby. An information sign will be added in the future.
A huge thankyou to Birkenhead Library Manager Ania Biazik and library staff, Keith Salmon and Friends of Le Roys Bush, Margaret Peacocke and other family and friends of the Le Roy family.
