The above intersection is unsafe for pedestrians going to or from New Lynn from the Hilling Street area. It is a particular wide intersection with overly large sweeping radii that encourages higher vehicle speed and long desire lines for crossing pedestrians. Please can you provide a safe crossing location to the west of the South Lynn intersection for those users travelling west from South Lynn Road (the new zebra is too far off the desire line and would disadvantage pedestrians if that is suggested as an alternative). The radii are also far too large and should be reduced make the crossing of South Lynn road easier as the newly provided pedestrian refuge is in the wrong place if you want to head west from South Lynn road on to Golf Road. I have had a number of near misses with trying to cross this intersection as vehicles travel too fast up golf road.
