Feedback sought on road changes

Botany Road will be safer and less congested, Auckland Transport (AT) says, following its proposed changes to two major intersections.

AT is seeking feedback until August on proposed changes to the Millhouse Drive and Cascades Road intersections.

The changes would see the roads widened to create new traffic lanes, improved traffic signals and road markings, high friction surfacing, a signalised pedestrian crossing and a raised zebra crossing.

Melanie Alexander, AT’s traffic engineering manager says a study by Auckland Transport found there were long traffic delays at each intersection during peak times and pedestrian safety needed to be improved.

“The changes will deal to the significant delays motorists currently face plus there isn’t a controlled pedestrian crossing at the slip lane from Botany Road onto Cascades Road which makes it difficult for pedestrians to cross this busy road.

“We’re committed to making it safer for people to be able to walk to where they need to go in their local area.”

Detailed maps and more information on the changes are available on AT’s website where you can have your say on the proposal.  To provide feedback or to learn more, visit the AT website.
