Consultation status: closed 29 August 2017

Proposal reference: BYL-157

Our proposal to install broken yellow lines (no stopping parking restrictions) along the cul-de-sac at Toroa Terrace in Mount Albert is no longer proceeding. Our plans were based on incorrect information regarding parking problems on Toroa Terrace. 

We apologise for any confusion or inconvenience caused by this consultation.


Original Proposal

We were proposing to install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times parking restrictions) along the cul-de-sac at Toroa Terrace in Mount Albert. This proposal was to include the removal of approximately six on-road carparks.

Feedback

We will review the feedback we received, survey the site, consider all other supporting evidence and develop a new proposal that accurately addresses parking problems in Toroa Terrace.

Specific feedback

  • Respondents were concerned with the loss of parking for residents and visitors, particularly along the straight section of the road between 65-69 Toroa Terrace. Many residents reported the great inconvenience of parking at a distance on Mount Albert Road, which has few car parking areas. There were no parking issues between 65-69 Toroa Terrace, the issue was occuring between 4 Toroa Terrace and the intersection of Mount Albert Road.
  • Reports that rubbish trucks easily back into driveways to exit Toroa Terrace and that few drivers actually park around the cul-de-sac We received incorrect information regarding the cul-de-sac through a misunderstanding in our customer request process. We will develop a new proposal that addresses parking issues on the street.
  • Suggestions to install broken yellow lines along the southern or left-hand side of the street from the corner of Mount Albert Road to the driveway of no 4 Toroa Terrace. We acknowledge this as a real concern and will be undertaking a survey of parking issues that encompasses the area between the driveway of 4 Toroa Terrace and the intersection of Mount Albert Road
  • Requests for baulk lines or "hockey stick" markings to indicate legal parking spaces away from the bend or road corners. Hockey sticks are usually installed where there are ongoing issues with illegal parking and enforcement. If you are concerned with illegal parking, we recommend contacting our parking enforcement call centre, which operates 24 hours, 7 days a week on (09) 355 3553.
  • Reports that the parking space near the bus stop on Mount Albert Road is causing visibility issues for drivers leaving Toroa Terrace. Our AT Metro team are currently surveying the existing bus stops, which may result in changes to this stop, including the addition of broken yellow lines to ensure driver visibility. We note that the existing continuity line on Toroa Terrace currently allows drivers to edge ahead to see on-coming traffic.
  • Requests for residents only parking spaces. We are not looking to implement residents only parking spaces within the Mount Albert area. It is likely that residential parking in this area will be reassessed in the coming years.
