Consultation status: closed 5 April 2017
We are seeking feedback on a proposal to improve vehicle accessibility and visibility issues on Beach Road in Campbells Bay.
We propose to:
- No stopping at all times restrictions on both sides of Beach Road, extending from the driveway of 230 Beach Road until the intersection with View Road (and slightly into View Road).
- Upgrading the existing bus stops outside 218, 246, 319 and 325A Beach Road, with new road markings and surrounding broken yellow lines.
- Extending the existing broken yellow lines at the intersection of Park Rise, Beach Road and Huntly Road.
Why the changes are needed
This proposal will address the safety concerns caused by vehicles parked on both sides of the road - especially near the corners, intersections, bus stops and the pedestrian refuge island crossing.
Thank you everyone for your feedback.
The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed with changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
Specific feedback and proposed solution
- Request to extend Broken Yellow Lines (BYLs) to the north and south of Beach Road. The request for BYLs outside 280 Beach Road is outside the scope of this consultation and would require a new consultation to be undertaken. Other extensions are not necessary as the road is capable of accommodating parking on both sides of the road.
- Concern about the removal of parking. After reviewing the resident’s feedback, the on-street parking outside 254 to 258 Beach Road is to be retained.
- Concerns about the impact on the new child care centre. The application for the development of the childcare centre had a number of proposed measures to mitigate the impacts of the traffic and safety and the consent was approved by independent commissioners at Auckland Council. There are some options which are looking to improve this situation including kerb lines modifications and a raised table. The broken yellow lines proposed on the corner of Park Rise and Beach Road provide improved visibility and accessibility making the intersection safer as cars should not be parked near the intersection.
- Request for additional works including traffic calming measures. If you would like your request to be considered for future development works, please provide feedback here.
We expect to introduce this work starting in July 2017 and throughout 2017/2018, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
