Raiha St/Broken Hill Rd intersection

Raiha St-Broken Hill Rd intersection



Raiha St-Broken Hill Rd intersection proposed

Issues

High risk of a crash due to a combination of:

  • Excessively wide conflict area, ie the likelihood of a left turning vehicle colliding with a cyclist travelling up Raiha St is high
  • Slip lane design not “safe system” ie a vehicle turning left into Broken Hill Rd may obscure a following vehicle from motorists waiting to turn right from Broken Hill Rd. 
  • Increased traffic volumes (Porirua Adventure Park/Transmission Gully)

Considerations

Kenepuru Corridor

The aim is to provide continued safe access to all businesses and road users using the Kenepuru Corridor for now and in the future.

Raiha St/Broken Hill Rd

  • numerous heavy vehicles
  • over dimension vehicle route
  • cycling route
  • no crashes within 30m of intersection 2015-2019

Proposal

Channelised intersection, reduced risk.
