Following last month’s article in the Beacon, Auckland Transport (AT) has reported back to the Puketapapa Local Board on a proposal to extend the concrete island on Griffen Park Road in place of the yellow hit sticks which were installed earlier this year.
The report concludes that extending the concrete island within the existing edge lines would cost up to $19,000 and may not provide a greater deterrent to illegal moves. Taking it further might provide a deterrent but would make it difficult for drivers doing a legal left hand turn into Hillsborough Road to see vehicles coming down the hill.
AT has therefore stated that its traffic engineering team "will be carrying out a review of this intersection in the near future to identify possible solutions to reduce crash risk and severity".
