    Work to pedestrianise One Tree Hill due

    Work to pedestrianise the summit of One Tree Hill and the road up to it in Auckland is set to begin.

    Work to pedestrianise the summit of One Tree Hill in Auckland is set to begin.

    The Maungakiekie summit road, which is extremely narrow in places, has long been criticised as one of the most unsafe roads for visitors to Auckland, with pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles all competing for space. Near misses are regularly reported.

    From March 26, work will start on reconfiguring the summit road entrance off Olive Grove and installing a new automated gate.

    The work will take four to six weeks to complete.

    When finished, the Auckland landmark will permanently close to all motor vehicles including motorbikes and scooters.

    The exception will be continued vehicle access for people who have limited mobility and cannot walk to the tihi; they or their drivers can phone the Auckland Council Call Centre to obtain an access code for the gate. For those who can walk, parking is available near the summit road entrance. Access through to Cornwall Park will remain unchanged.

    Paul Majurey, chair of the Tupuna Maunga Authority says the change recognises the maunga as sites of immense cultural and historical significance.
