Proposed changes to the Sunset Road/Target Road/Caribbean Drive roundabout

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board

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
