We're proposing improvements in your area

We're proposing to improve road safety on Carlisle Road, Browns Bay, by extending the broken yellow lines from 48 to 24 Carlisle Road.

We are proposing to:

  • Extend the broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) along the southern kerb line, between 48 and 24 Carlisle Road, to ensure a two-way flow of traffic
  • Paint white parking lines or indicators to show drivers where to park, to avoid blocking driveway access and visibility
  • Provide mandatory lead-in and lead-out spaces for bus stops outside 21 and 26 Carlisle Road, to give bus services enough space to access the shops
  • Clearly paint bus stop markings outside 21 Carlisle Road, to make sure it does not block or interfere with the property driveway
  • Paint the words 'BUS STOP' on the bus stops at 21 and 26 Carlisle Road.

This proposal responds to requests to prevent vehicles from parking on both sides of the road, which currently creates a bottleneck for traffic.

Although most drivers park appropriately,  our observation showed that if a car is inappropriately parked, it can cause problems for buses and emergency services. This is because the road becomes a single lane, with a lack of passing points. This proposal aims to maintain two-way traffic flow in the area, as it is safer for the community.
