Mangati/Parklands Roundabout

To improve the safety of all road users and future-proof for growing traffic volumes, NPDC is testing a proposed upgrade at the Bell Block intersection of Mangati Road and Parklands Avenue by installing a temporary, painted, roundabout. 

The intersection has a history of crashes/near misses and will only get busier with the development of the Area Q residential area (between Bell Block and New Plymouth Airport), so we want to make sure traffic can flow smoothly even as Bell Block’s population grows.

When locals have had a month to try out the intersection’s new layout, we’ll ask for your feedback. Public comments will help us decide if a permanent roundabout should be installed, or if we should choose another option to improve road users’ safety. Please keep an eye on this page or our Have Your Say section for updates.
