More of Auckland's volcanic cones could soon be closed off to vehicle access.

Tamaki Tupuna Maunga Authority chair Paul Majurey says the reaction to making Maungawhau-Mt Eden pedestrian only acess has been overwhelmingly positive.

He says other communities are now asking for similar protection for their maunga and three will get their wish to be pedestrianised.

"So we have coming up Maungakiekie, Puketapapa (Mr Roskill) and Takarunga (Mt Victoria). That's big for us in terms of having those spaces protected in the way we found it at Maungawhau and we are looking forward to those events and those communities having those shared spaces and safe spaces," Mr Majurey says.

This year's Love Your Maunga festival will be on Mangere Mountain on Febraury 17, with four hours of live music, food and market stalls, as well as guided walks around what was one of the most formidable Maori pa in Tamaki Makaurau.
