New pedestrian refuge approved for St Johns Rd

4 August 2016

Great news for local walkers – Auckland Transport (AT) has approved a pedestrian refuge to be installed outside 181 St Johns Rd, outside the St Johns Theological College. The bus stop on the College side of the road will also be realigned as part of this project.

Thank you to all those residents who put in individual submissions to help support our push for a safer pedestrian environment along St Johns Rd. As a Residents Association we have been advocating to AT for improvements to the crossings outside St Johns College since the formation of our Transport subcommittee.

Although AT have not agreed to a zebra crossing, we think this is a step in the right direction, and we’re encouraged to see AT responding positively to residents’ concerns.

See the Feedback Summary for 181 St Johns Rd Pedestrian Refuge and Bus Stop Realignment from AT for full details of the project, FAQs, and next steps.
