Consultation status: closed 18 November 2016
We are seeking feedback on a proposal to add No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) along Carlisle Road in Browns Bay.
This proposed change is to improve the access to the road for residents, emergency vehicles and rubbish trucks.
Our site visits confirm that vehicle movement is restricted when vehicles are parked on both sides of the narrow section of Carlisle Road. The proposed broken yellow lines will address this issue.

Thank you everyone for your feedback.
The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
Specific feedback and proposed solution
- Request to extend proposed No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) to the Firth Rd intersection. We support some on-street parking as this can promote a slower speed environment. There is also better visibility on the section of Carlisle Road which leads up to the intersection with Firth Road.
- Request for additional No stopping at all times (NSAAT) restrictions on the other side of the road. The southern side of this stretch of Carlisle Road poses a greater safety risk, and as a result is considered a higher priority. Additional restrictions on the northern side of the road can be investigated after the installation of the current proposal.
- Request to widen the road instead of installing NSAAT restrictions. The costs involved with widening the road are very significant. As a result, this option is not considered cost-effective for this situation.
- Request for speed calming measures near the intersections with Beach Road and Woodlands Crescent. The requirement for speed calming is a separate issue, which has been passed on to the relevant team. This will be investigated separately.
- Request for additional works including extension of the footpath and installation of a pedestrian crossing on the slip lane at the intersection with Beach Road. These requests are outside the scope of this proposal. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please provide feedback or report a problem here.
We expect to introduce this work by June 2017, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will issue a 48-hour notice to all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
