Valderama Dr and Ormiston Rd Safety

Wenkai from Flat Bush

Hi everyone,

Hi everyone,

Previously I made a post about the intersection of Valderama Dr and Ormiston road (see below).

If you use this intersection, please keep reading, if you don’t, please keep reading anyway.

I have contacted Auckland Transport and they basically said although there has been accidents, no one has been seriously hurt or died. So no urgent plans to do anything about it.

But with the new half of Valderama Dr opened, the intersection looks a little something like the google maps screenshot with arrows (see attached).

So I’m urging you, if you are as concerned as I am about the potential serious accident, injuries, deaths, that may happen at this intersection. Please go onto the Auckland Transport website, hit the contact button on top right and fill in a feedback form. Maybe if they receive more than 2, they might take this matter seriously.

Thanks for your time. (If you aren’t concerned, fill in a feedback form anyway, we should unite together)

——————————————
Previous post:


Hi all,

I have becoming increasingly concerned over the intersection of Valderama Drive and Ormiston Rd.

Here is a screenshot of the enquiry I sent to the council which got forwarded to Auckland Transport on the 4th March 2019. And then the next screenshot is their response which I chased up on 9th August 2019.

In my opinion, I feel their response is pretty poor, do we wait until someone is dead or seriously hurt before we do something about it? Since submitting the enquiry, I’ve seen another two accidents. Although no one was hurt, but another two nevertheless.

What are your thoughts and advice?

Thanks for your time.
