Reset Urban Design is working with Auckland Council 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 a more open, modern and lively beachside destination in the heart of Takapuna. With a more spacious and attractive streetscape, the upgrade will ensure this growing and changing area continues to thrive for years to come.
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.
