Queen Street, Auckland (1974)

On the 21st of August 1958, Auckland became the first city in New Zealand to employ the ‘Barnes Dance’ style of pedestrian crossings. This system, named for American traffic engineer Henry A. Barnes, stops all vehicle traffic so that pedestrians can cross busy intersections in any direction at the same time.

Auckland trolleybuses crossing the Onehunga rail line

A view from the October 10, 1971, MOTAT trolleybus tour, the only place in Auckland where trolleybuses crossed a railway line in Church Street, Onehunga, at Captain Springs Road. In the distance behind the two buses is the Onehunga bus depot. This wiring was all non-revenue as it was only used to get the buses to and from the depot from Queen Street, Onehunga.
