Hurstmere Rd Public Consultation
Reset Urban Design is working with Auckland Council/Auckland Transport and a specialist consultant team on the Hurstmere Road Streetscape Upgrade Project in central Takapuna. The proposed revitalisation will transform the section of Hurstmere Road between Lake Road and Anzac Street into an open and vibrant destination, reducing vehicle dominance and increasing walking and cycling facilities. The proposal features more public seating, better street lighting, more vibrant streetscaping and a new stormwater treatment system to remove pollutants from the water discharging to the beach. This section of Hurstmere Road would become one-way for north-bound traffic with a 30km/h speed limit, with south-bound traffic redirected along Anzac Street and Lake Road. A south-bound cycle lane will also be introduced, made with a different surfacing material to maintain clear separation from the general traffic lane. This transformational project recently went through public consultation, with consultation feedback due mid-November.
