Let's Go: Your Way - revised designs

We want your feedback on revised plans to upgrade walking and cycling facilities on South Road/Devon Street West (SH45).

In August we received more than 1,500 submissions on proposals for this project and those on Mangorei Road and Breakwater Road/St Aubyn Street. However, our Mayor and Councillors have asked staff to have another look at South Road/Devon Street West (SH45) and seek public feedback on revised designs.

Feedback already received on all projects, will be considered by the Mayor and Councillors, before making their decision on which, if any, will be put forward to Waka Kotahi – NZ Transport Agency for funding approval.


NPDC has until 7 December 2023 to present a preferred design to Waka Kotahi to decide if it will be funded. This means there is limited scope to make significant changes beyond the options presented.

3-13 November: Public feedback open on revised designs.

13 November: Feedback closes at midday

30 November: Agenda report for public Council meeting goes live on our website.

6 December: Extraordinary Council meeting for decision on preferred design option (if any).

7 December: Selected project submitted to Waka Kotahi for funding consideration.

Have your say on the revised designs - feedback now closed

Your feedback, along with submissions from the first round of consultation, will help to inform the final decision by our Mayor and Councillors on what project is presented to Waka Kotahi - NZ Transport Agency.

Feedback closed midday 13 November 2023.

NOTE: Only one project can be delivered with the funding available, and Waka Kotahi will make a final decision on whether the project will be funded.

Why South Road/Devon Street West

Given the funding available, this route has the potential to make the biggest impact in improving safety.

It serves six schools in the area but has the highest crash history out of the original three proposals with 29 incidents involving walking or cycling in the past 10 years.

Modelling for this project indicates there would be a strong uptake of cycling in the area if improvements are introduced.

Out of the three original proposals this route has the lowest heavy vehicle usage.
