We know that there are problems in the SH76 Brougham Street and Moorhouse Avenue area.
It can be difficult to get around with commuters, freight and bus drivers, pedestrians and cyclists all competing to travel along and around the same busy area.
It’s congested at times and there have been a number of crashes. From 2008 to 2017, 11 people died and 130 people were seriously injured in crashes within the project area. More than a third of those hurt or killed were pedestrians or cyclists and the majority of crashes (63%) happened at intersections.
We want to make changes to make it safer and easier for everyone to live, do business and travel in this area.
It’s important to plan for improvements now so we can keep things moving as the city grows.
We are working together to develop a 30 year strategy for improving this area. The strategy will include short, medium and long-term improvements, with the aim of making it easier and safer to get around.
