Why the changes are needed
These changes are needed as currently, traffic queues are extending when vehicles are waiting to turn right into the petrol station are blocked by vehicles parked on the left hand kerb. This proposal aims at providing sufficient lane width for through vehicles to pass.
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.
- Respondent suggested that the broken yellow lines, should be extended even more, to the second driveway of number 9 Lunn. Also on the west side of the Road, they would like to suggest that the yellow line be extended, from the petrol station drive way to the Wendy Restaurant driveway, to stop congestion from Panmure/Ellerslie Highway.
We have proposed broken yellow line extensions to allow sufficient lane width for through vehicles when other vehicles are waiting to turn right into the gas station. Removing further parking will result in unnecessary parking loss. Available parking space between the two driveways of #9 is approximately 6.5m hence enough to accommodate one normal size vehicle. Parking on the western side of the road reduces traffic flow to single lane however there is sufficient merge length departing from the intersection hence additional parking removal may also result in unnecessary parking loss.
This work will happen before April 2019 but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
