In July 2020, we proposed changes in your area
To improve access for large vehicles to the University’s medical facility loading bay, we proposed installing broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) parking restrictions on Park Avenue, Grafton. This proposal responds to concerns from Auckland University that parked vehicles are blocking access to the medical facility. These changes will involve relocating the existing approved shared vehicle parking to the opposite side of the road and extending it by an additional space.
Grafton - Safe with us
Auckland Transport cares for your safety. We want to make our roads safe for everyone, people walking and cycling, especially for our kids and senior citizens and people driving. Projects like this one around Park Avenue are another step towards our goal of achieving no deaths or serious injuries on our roads. We are guided by the Vision Zero approach to transport safety, which prioritises human safety over other measures (like minor time saving).
This project will proceed to the next stage of detailed design without changes before being implemented. Thank you to everyone who responded to our proposal and gave us the chance to better understand your community and concerns. A summary of your feedback and our responses to community questions is below.
- Respondent mentioned that it is very good to have more car share spaces available as it makes living without a car in the city so much easier.
Thank you for your valuable feedback. We hope these changes will improve safety and accessibility in this area.
- Request for more car share spaces to be added.
As part of our proposal, we are relocating the existing space car share space as well as adding an additional space. If the need for more car share spaces increases in the future, we can look at making some changes.
These works are being planned for November 2020, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays.
