Safety will be boosted for road users and pedestrians in Glen Eden town centre thanks to $5 million of planned improvements.

The upgrades aim to calm traffic and protect people crossing the road in West Coast Rd and Glendale Rd.

Improvements are also planned for Captain Scott Rd between the West Coast Rd and Oates Rd intersection.

“Glen Eden was chosen for this Vision Zero flagship project because West Coast Road is a high-risk arterial road that needs transformational change to make the town centre safe,” said Greg Presland, Waitakere Ranges local board chairman.

“This is a really neat little town centre and, with the development we see happening around us, we want it to be as safe as possible for the people choosing to call it home.”

Transport agency Waka Kotahi NZ is funding 75 per cent of the project cost.

Go to at.govt.nz... for more information on the upgrade.

Which other roads in west Auckland do you think would benefit from safety improvements?

Have your rubbish tags vanished before your wheelie bins were collected?

Is this a frequent or rare occurrence in your neighbourhood?

Last year Auckland Council fielded 1996 requests for service related to missing bin tags.

This comprised 538 from the North Shore, 331 from Papakura and 1126 from West Auckland.

The council collected nearly 3.5 million bins using tags last year.

The council saw 23 requests for service related to missing tags last week out of around 60,000 bins collected each week in the user pays area.

A council spokeswoman said the average number of requests had not changed since pre-lockdown and marked a 7% reduction from 2019.

Parul Sood, Auckland Council general manager for waste solutions, said missing bin tags are rare but it does happen.

The council recommends residents put their address and date on the tag and delay tagging their bin until close to collection time, he said.

They should report missing tags to Auckland Council on 09 301 0101 so the incident could be tracked and investigated.

The work includes:
• A raised intersection at the intersection of West Coast Road & Janet Clews Place for increased pedestrian safety.
• The intersection of West Coast Road & Glendale Road will also be raised to help slow traffic, with a signalised pedestrian crossing added to each approach.
