Proposal reference: BYL-151

We are going to extend the No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) at the end of Karaka Street, including parking removal.

Why the changes are needed

These changes will prevent parked cars from blocking drivers turning at the end of this street.

Feedback

The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed with minor changes to the next stage of detailed planning..

Specific feedback and proposed solution

  • Request for No Exit street signage on approaches to Karaka St and Randolph St. Vehicle turning problems may occur when large vehicles drive into these streets and have trouble exiting. We will install supplementary ‘No Exit’ signs on existing street signs on both sides of Karaka Street.
  • Request for the installation of flexi-posts to restrict parking on the broken yellow lines on Upper Queen St to deter trucks and customers parking on restricted sections of the road. We do not install flexi-posts on broken yellow lines, which already indicate no stopping at all times parking restrictions. If you see anyone parking illegally you can contact Parking Enforcement on (09)3553553.
  • Concern regarding the removal of parking on Karaka Street. We have taken all measures to minimise the loss of parking in this area. Karaka Street is a No Exit road that must allow drivers enough room at its dead-end to turn around and exit the street.
  • Request for additional works include the installation of broken yellow lines opposite the carpark of 57-59 Frances St. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please provide this feedback.

Next steps

We expect to introduce No Exit signage in October 2017 and broken yellow lines in January 2018, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior work beginning.
