We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to remove the clearway outside 33A - 39 Kimber Hall Avenue, Mt Roskill.
Why the changes are needed
After investigation, it is considered that the clearway is no longer necessary at this location as specified in the drawing.
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.
- Concern that the removal of the clearway will create congestion on Kimber Hall Avenue during school pick-up and drop-off times. The clearway provides passing room for vehicles travelling in opposite directions. Management of traffic on Kimber Hall Avenue during school pick-up and drop-off times is required. A site investigation found that there was not a high vehicle demand during school drop-off and pick-up times. Reinstating parking will assist with speed calming on the road as parking visually narrows the carriageway. This will increase safety for pedestrians during the pick-up/drop-off times. We will monitor Kimber Hall Avenue following the removal of the clearway for operational issues.
- Suggestion to increase signage and/or install broken yellow lines in place of the clearway. The intention of this proposal is to remove the existing clearway restriction and reinstate on-street parking. As such, the installation of additional signs or broken yellow lines is not considered necessary for this project.
- Concern that removal of the clearway will make it more difficult for vehicles to exit 33-39 Kimber Hall Avenue. Auckland Transport have investigated visibility concerns at these driveways. As Kimber Hall Avenue is a local road, it is considered that there is sufficient visibility with vehicles parked to safely exit the driveways.
This work will happen between September 2018 and June 2019, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will notify affected residents prior to construction starting.
