It’s a great package of improvements that link up several projects in the area and make it easier for people of all ages and abilities to get places by bike.
Below are our suggested answers for the feedback form. If you have time, we encourage you to fill out the form in your own words, using ours as a guide – but if you’re short on time, feel free to copy and paste – every voice counts!

Question 1: What do you think of the proposed Māngere Cycling Improvements?

  • I strongly support these improvements – they will make cycling in Māngere safer and easier by linking to so many destinations, and provide a good transport choice for people of all ages and abilities.
  • [Feel free to add your own views on what these changes will mean for you!]

Question 2: Do you have any issues or concerns with the proposed cycling improvements?

  • Review intersection designs on the planned Coronation and McKenzie Road cycleway to ensure they are safe – particularly with the SH20 roundabout, Bader Drive, Walmsey Road, and McKenzie and Kirkbride Road. The McKenzie and Kirkbride Road intersection needs a better design, with less exposure without lane protection for people on bikes, especially given the speed of turning vehicles here.
  • Ensure that the project is integrated with recent and upcoming improvements in Māngere Bridge Village and Town Centre, to make sure safety for people on bikes isn’t compromised by design oversights.
  • For Māngere Bridge Village, investigate a range of cycleway separator options including planter boxes to make sure the character of the area is maintained and enhanced.

Question 3: Is there anything you think we’ve missed in our proposed cycling routes for Māngere?

  • Add signposting for the Tarata Creek pathway so people using the planned new facilities are aware of it, and remove or alter the pathway bollards at Eamon Street to allow families and riders of all abilities to access this path easily.
  • Consider adding raised crossing tables at either end of Jordan Road to confirm its status as a neighbourhood road and safe connection for people on bikes.

Question 4: What would encourage you to cycle more in Māngere?

  • Having a fully connected network of cycleways and shared paths across Mangere that are safe to ride anytime – particularly through intersections.
  • [Your suggestions, ideas and additions here!]
