We're making changes in your area

In November 2019, we proposed to to extend the existing broken yellow lines at the bend on Oakwood Grove in Eastern Beach. The proposed parking restriction involved removing two parking spaces.

Our proposal responded to a request from the local community to address the issue of parked cars blocking visibility in the bend on Oakwood Grove. By extending the broken yellow lines, drivers will no longer be forced onto the right-hand side of the street and block vehicles exiting Oakwood Grove. As a result, we aim to improve visibility and safety for all drivers along this stretch of road..

  • Concern that extending the ‘no stopping’ (broken yellow lines) will be ignored by people parking cars. Vehicles parking on the ‘no stopping’ (broken yellow lines) would be liable to get a ticket when there is a Parking Officer working in the area or through request from the community. If you would like to request a parking officer to visit the site, please contact us 09 355 3553 with the vehicle details and location.

Next steps

These works are planned to take place before March 2020, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays.
