We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to install new No stopping at all times (broken yellow lines) parking restrictions along sections of Kitemoana Street in Orakei.
Why the changes are needed
This proposal aims to improve access and visibility for drivers travelling through Kitemoana Street. When cars are parked on both sides of the road, the through lane narrows significantly, forcing drivers to reverse to the nearest clearing to avoid opposing traffic, either towards the Tamaki Drive intersection, or southwards towards the other parking restrictions.
The curvature of the street combined with parked vehicles can also obstruct the visibility of any oncoming traffic.
This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback.
Community feedback we received and our response:
- Suggestion to move the broken yellow lines even further towards Tamaki Drive on one side as the road can often become crowded, especially during summer months due to people going to the beach or park etc which can lead to issues between drivers and road rage. We believe that the proposed length of broken yellow lines will be sufficient to provide appropriate passing opportunities and a longer length would be considered excessive. There are also existing broken yellow lines closer to the intersection of Kitemoana Street with Tamaki Drive and we feel that the combination of these two areas of broken yellow lines will improve the access and visibility along the road.
This work will occur between now and June 2019, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents prior to construction starting.
