We've proposed changes in your area
We proposed new broken yellow lines on Bayview Road, Bayview.
Our proposal responds to a request from the local community to restrict people from driving across the centre-line. The proposed restrictions are expected to improve visibility for drivers at the corner.
The proposed broken yellow lines will proceed to the next stage of detailed planning before being painted on the road. 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.
- Request to extend broken yellow lines on north side right down to corner. Cars parked here force drivers coming up Bayview to cross the centre-line into oncoming traffic.
Parking is in high demand at this location and as such will only be removed where necessary. The proposed parking restrictions cover the bends in the road with reduced visibility that create a safety issue related to parked cars. On the straight sections of road, visibility is enough to allow drivers to manoeuvre around parked cars.
- Request to install speed humps at the entrance to both sides of Bayview Road, to reduce speeds along the road.
Concerns related to high speeds should be referred to the New Zealand Police for enforcement. If the problem persists after enforcement efforts, the area can be investigated for traffic calming measures.
- Request to install tow-away signs on Bayview to enforce proposed parking restrictions.
The proposed parking restrictions will be enforced by parking enforcement. If any vehicles are parking illegally, please contact our Parking Compliance Department on (09) 355 3553 with the details of the vehicle to request enforcement action be taken. If drivers fail to comply with the proposed restrictions, signage can be investigated in the future.
These works are expected to be completed by February 2020, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
