We're proposing improvements in your area
In response to community requests, we are proposing parking changes on Woodbine Avenue and Wairakei Street. These changes aim to improve parking availability and support safer parking for everyone.
We are proposing to:
- Introduce P120 (2-hour time restricted parking) on the inner side of Woodbine Avenue and Wairakei Street. This would apply from Monday to Friday, 8am – 6pm.
- Paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) around the corners of the Woodbine Avenue and Wairakei Street intersection and on the Wairakei street cul-de-sac.
We’ve heard from the community that the unrestricted parking on Woodbine Avenue and Wairakei Street is used for all-day parking. We’ve investigated and found that the high demand for parking in this area makes it difficult for people to find a place to park. This has also resulted in unsafe and illegal parking in the area.
Time-restricted parking on one side of the street and broken yellow lines would:
- Improve short-term parking opportunities for people visiting nearby homes and shops.
- Provide an option for people who need to park for a longer period of time.
- Prevent people from parking around corners, making it easier for drivers to see clearly when turning in and out of the Woodbine Avenue and Wairakei Street intersection.
What happens next
- We’ll consider all the feedback we receive, and then decide the best way to move forward.
- We’ll post the outcome of this proposal and a summary of community feedback on this webpage.
- We can email you the proposal outcome as soon as it’s ready – just select that option when you fill in the survey.
