This week marks Road Safety Week, where we take the chance to highlight ways to keep each other safe on New Zealand’s roads. This year’s theme is Save Lives, #Speakup, and the week coincides with the United Nations Global Road Safety Week. So what does road safety look like to you? #SpeakUp and post a reply below!
This year we’ve lost too many people on our roads. No death on the road is acceptable. Everyone is entitled to safe and healthy mobility. Here at AMI, we’re committed to making our communities safer for everyone. We’ve helped to fund advanced warning signs for rural intersections – so drivers get an early head’s up to slow down – as well as supporting youth training in over 80 schools through Road Safety Education (RSE) , a nationwide organisation helping young people change the way they think about road safety and lay the foundation for safe road use throughout their lives. There has been huge success through RSE’s RYDA programme and in some areas with their Good2GO programme, which is run for students at schools such as Tāmaki College in Auckland.
Road Safety Week encourages us all to take a pledge – what can we as individuals do to improve road safety? Will you avoid all mobile phone use or take more breaks during long road trips? Save Lives, #SpeakUp below and tell us what your pledge is.

We’re proposing some changes to the Waiapu Precinct in Onehunga’s town centre.
Panuku Development Auckland, supported by the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board, is exploring what Onehunga’s Waiapu block could look like in the future. The Waiapu block borders Church Street and Arthur Street adjacent to Onehunga Mall, including the parking lot next to the supermarket and the green space in the centre.
These are some of the things we are thinking about in the Waiapu Precinct:
• Improving public open space
• Creating walking and cycling paths through the site
• Providing new homes and places for businesses
We need your feedback
• Go online to to provide feedback.
• Or submit your feedback in person at the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board office, 7-13 Pilkington Road, Panmure.
Submissions close 1 March 2020.
Hi Neighbours, motorists running through red traffic lights create some of the highest death and injury risks. Auckland Transport's roll-out of cameras is making a difference, but do you think penalties are tough enough ? Read the story below:
