Pukekohe consultations launching on new traffic lights, new zebra crossings

Sapeer Mayron Reporter from Franklin County News

Two new sets of traffic lights and pedestrian crossings at major town centre intersections are on the table for Pukekohe.

At the roundabout at Seddon, King, Queen and West Streets, and further down at the corner of King and Edinburgh St where there are raised platforms for crossing, it’s proposed there should be formal zebra crossings instead.

In that case, pedestrians would have right of way, where currently they have to give way to vehicles.

And at the intersections at Edinburgh, Stadium and Tobin Streets, and further down at Edinburgh, Massey and Wesley Streets, it’s proposed there should be new zebra crossings.

Pukekohe is growing and the town centre needs to be more “people-friendly,” Melanie Alexander, Auckland Transport’s Network Management manager.

The zebra crossings will be stronger indications to drivers that they need to slow down, and make moving around the town centre safer for pedestrians and cyclists, she said.

At Stadium Drive, Auckland Transport is proposing to introduce two sets of traffic lights.

One would be at the junction of Stadium Drive and East Street, and the other sets would replace the roundabout at Stadium Drive, King Street, Manukau Road and Massey Avenue.

The two sets of lights will be linked for the best traffic control, allowing traffic to flow and pedestrians to cross safely between the town centre and Roulston Park.

Alexander said AT has spent several years on both the pedestrian crossings and traffic light proposals, and has also consulted with Eke Panuku on future growth planning for the region.

Consultation begins on Monday, August 08 and will run until August 31. Have your say online at the link below.

Meet Denise from Germany who wanted to learn about the language and culture of Aotearoa. “I wanted to engage with Māori and understand and honour the culture”.

I was lucky to get the opportunity to study with Awanuiārangi at Papatūānuku Kōkiri Marae. It was the best thing that could have happened, a game-changer. I had a great teacher. Learning at the marae was very special – it got me into Te Ao Māori quickly applying our learning straight away.

I don’t know where I would be without this te reo journey. It was an incredible experience that has changed my life.
