We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to extend current 'No stopping at all times' lines on Ada Street in Remuera by 6 metres and to remark the yellow limit line, which will result in the loss 1 parking space.
Why the changes are needed
These changes will improve access into the street for larger vehicles, such as emergency vehicles and waste trucks. Parked cars around the corner have been causing accessibility issues.
This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. A summary of the community feedback we received and answers to questions and concerns is below.
- This proposal received positive responses from community members who supported the improved access to Ada Street. Comments were also made about the improved visibility and traffic flow these changes would bring.
- We received suggestions to change the length of the proposed broken yellow lines by extending them either further along Ada Street or in front of driveways. We also received a request not to install the broken yellow lines due to concerns over reducing available on street parking for residents and a feeling that maintaining on street parking is of greater value than access for large vehicles.
We recognise the value and importance of on-street parking to residents and their visitors, and as result we want to keep the loss of parking to a minimum whilst still improving access as well as visibility. We believe that the proposed changes will have enough effect to improve the current situation.
That being said, these changes are required so that larger vehicles can safely and effectively access Ada Street, these include emergency vehicles such as ambulances and fire trucks as well as rubbish trucks, this access is essential. As we are only proposing the removal of a single parking space we will be proceeding without changes.
This work will happen between now and June 2019, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will notify affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
