Improving safety outside Te Kura o Manunui School

Our works to improve safety outside Te Kura o Manunui School are now complete.

Te Kura o Manunui School relocated from 30 Millers Road to 72 Millers Road earlier this year. The larger premises can accommodate up to 750 students.

The Ministry of Education advised us on which improvements were required, and we implemented them as part of our scheduled general upgrades for Millers Road.
These changes make it safer and easier for our tamariki to cross the road, increase safety during school pick-up and drop-off as well as reduce the speed limit for cars during school hours on Millers Road.

Safety improvements included:

  • A raised pedestrian crossing and wider shared path on Millers Road at the intersection with Jude Place
  • New raised speed tables to replace the speed cushions
  • Yellow “no stopping lines” to prohibit parking within the yellow lines – see picture
  • Resealing the road, upgrading the footpath and curbs and updating relevant signage to reflect the changes
  • Implementing a lowered speed limit during school hours of 30km/h 

Additional parking spaces

We removed some of the existing on-street parking spaces in this location to make room for our safety improvements.

While we had looked at creating parking spaces along Jude Place by removing some of the existing yellow ‘no-stopping’ lines, we are also investigating other opportunities to create new parking spaces in the surrounding streets.

Currently, we are looking into the possibility of creating additional on-street parking on Millers Road between the Solomon Street roundabout and the Jude Place intersection. This option would involve relocating the two existing bus stops along this section of the road.

Thank you for your patience while we look for a solution that meets the needs of this community.
