Topic: Fenton Street, Four Laning

Topic type:

Fenton Street was a 2 laned, tree lined Avenue

Fenton Street from Arawa to Whakarewarewa 

Anecdotal evidence suggests the reason Fenton Street lanes were built so wide, was to allow the oxen teams turning room. The change to four lanes starting at Arawa Street and ending at Whaka occured in 1960.
