Maungakiekie Avenue, Greenlane - No stopping restrictions

Consultation status: closed 13 June 2017

We are proposing to extend the No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) from the intersection to just past the driveway of #3 Maungakiekie Avenue, Greenlane.

Why the changes are needed

When cars are parked outside #1 Maungakiekie Ave, close to where the road becomes one lane, it causes accessibility issues and a build-up of traffic. This often occurs during school peaks and when events are held in Cornwall Park.

The proposed No stopping at all times restrictions extension will ensure access in and out of the road is maintained during these times by removing obstructions.

Feedback

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

The proposal received mixed 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

  • Request for on-street parking for residents and visitors. The loss of parking will be limited to one space. We believe this to be necessary in order to improve accessibility at this location where the crossing point narrows the road.
  • Question whether this will encourage more people to use this as a through route. The proposed installation of broken yellow lines is limited to approximately 11m. It is unlikely that this would result in Maungakiekie Ave being used as a through route. The proposal will however result in improved protection for vehicles at this location.
  • Request to extend the restrictions to the driveway of #7 as people often overlap the drive and park on both sides. Parking is at a premium and any additional No stopping at all times restrictions could increase speeds along Maungakiekie Ave. The existing parking acts as side friction, slowing down vehicles. For cars parked illegally we encourage you to contact us (09) 355 3553 with the vehicle details to request a parking officer visit the site.
  • Berm trees are a visibility problem as the trunks are over a metre wide. We are not responsible for the management of trees and vegetation, please contact Auckland Council on 09 301 0101 in regards to this issue for them to investigate.
  • Request for additional works including signal phasing on Wheturangi Road and changes to the ‘no right turn’/access to Maungakiekie Ave. If you would like your request to be considered for future development works, provide feedback here.

Next stage

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