Mariri Rd, Onehunga - No stopping restrictions

Consultation status: closed 20 November 2017

Proposal reference: BYL-178

We are proposing to extend the existing broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times restrictions) on all the exits coming off two roundabouts on Mariri Road; the intersection with Amaru Road and the intersection with Tawa Road.

When cars are parked on the exits of these two roundabouts there is insufficient room for vehicles to manoeuvre safely past the parked cars without crossing over the centre line and the splitter islands.

Feedback

Thank you everyone for your 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 without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

Specific feedback and proposed solution

  • Requests for the broken yellow lines to be extended on Mariri Road and Amaru Road and that they should be equal on all legs. Suggestion that the broken yellow lines also be extended at all four exits. Tracking designs were done on departures at both roundabouts and the proposed broken yellow lines were the minimum required for sufficient manoeuvrability. However the southern Mariri Road departure at the Mariri Road/Amaru Road roundabout required 2 parking spaces to be removed. This will be updated once sent to the contractor. Removing additional parking would not have any further benefits.
  • Some concerns and discontent about the loss of parking. Currently, large vehicles turning onto Mariri Road's north side are swinging their tails over the splitter island which is a major safety issue. Removing one parking space will allow sufficient manoeuvrability for larger vehicles therefore increasing safety. There are plenty of alternative parking spaces in the vicinity of 70 Mariri Road.
  • Concern that the removal of parking will increase vehicle speed. Removing one parking space will not increase speeds dramatically and it will benefit this location by reducing the safety risks.
  • Request for additional works. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please provide feedback on our website.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/2018 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
