New T3 transit lane confirmed for Birkenhead Ave - 2021/22

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board

New T3 transit lane confirmed for Birkenhead Ave - 2021/22:
Thankyou to every one who gave feedback to Auckland Transport last year on their proposal for a T3 lane and pedestrian crossing on Birkenhead Ave.
There has been one main change since the original proposal, and that is to reduce the length of the T3 lane so that it now ends immediately to the north of Zion Road. This will allow increased distance for drivers to access their required lane.

See AT's responses to other feedback and suggestions here: at.govt.nz...

To support the transit lane, on-street parking will be removed along the opposite (western) side of the road, as there would no longer be sufficient road-width available to accommodate it.

A signalised pedestrian crossing will be installed outside 129 Birkenhead Ave, and the existing pedestrian refuge crossing outside 147 Birkenhead Ave will be removed.

AT now expect the construction to occur in 2021/22 (depending on budget). The changes will then be reviewed for their effectiveness within 12 months.

Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!
