Following earlier community consultation, we’ve improved road safety in the Manakau and Ohau townships.

In both Manakau and Ohau:

  • the speed limit has been reduced to 80km/h through the townships
  • threshold treatments at the entrances have been built
  • landscaping and street lighting has been added
  • road markings have been improved to provide safer cycleways/pull-off areas.

In Manakau we have also:

  • removed the southbound passing lane
  • added two pedestrian refuges, and
  • improved off-road parking.
