We've proposed changes in your area
In July 2019, we proposed installing ‘No stopping at all times parking restrictions’ (broken yellow lines) at the Coronation and Domain Road roundabout in Hillcrest. Our proposal involved a request from the local community to address the issue of parked cars blocking the left-turn lane on the Coronation Road approach to the roundabout. This will involve the removal of approximately two parking spaces.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are needed to greatly improve the movement of traffic through this intersection.
The proposed changes 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.
- Many of the respondents supported to proposal but requested the extension of broken yellow lines down Domain Road to improve visibility. On Domain Road, there is currently space for three vehicles to queue up to the Give-way sign before entering the roundabout at the intersection of Glenfield, Domain and Coronation road. Domain Road is a low volume road with little traffic even at peak times. We believe the space is sufficient to provide adequate visibility and accessibility for vehicles turning in and out of Domain Road.
- Request to provide residential only parking. The goal of this proposed project was to resolve an issue with visibility and accessibility at the roundabout. We are currently reviewing residential parking schemes and developing a new residential parking policy. Although we continue to honour existing parking schemes, we will not extend residents exempt parking permits to new areas pending the outcome of this review. Find out more about residential parking schemes.
- Request to extend broken yellow lines, to improve safety for people driving, on Glenfield Road. The lanes on Glenfield Road are wide enough to allow kerbside parking and accommodate traffic flow. There is an also a flush median for vehicles to use when driving past any parked cars if needed. On-street parking is an asset for residents and commuters. Therefore, we have tried to keep the loss of parking spaces to a minimum. We will not be proposing additional broken yellow lines on Glenfield Road now.
- Requests for two lanes of traffic along Glenfield Road, to relieve congestion. Widening Glenfield Road to implement two formal lanes on each direction would require extensive construction work and acquisition of land. This type of work is not planned for the near future. The existing lanes are wide enough for through traffic to safely drive around any vehicles that are waiting to turn. There are right turn bays and flush medians provide to assist turning.
- Request for parking enforcement which eliminates the need to paint and repaint broken yellow lines. Vehicles park at this proposed section of Coronation Road daily. We hope these new markings will prevent this from happening rather than relying on enforcement to resolve infringement issues when it is too late.
- Request for roundabout redevelopment, as the current roundabout is unsafe. We are currently in the process of reviewing this roundabout for further safety improvements. Once our investigation has been completed and leads to a proposal we will be engaging with affected residents and key stakeholders once again.
- Request to paint broken yellow lines at intersection of Mountbatten Avenue and Coronation Road. We recently sought feedback on parking restrictions at the Mountbatten Avenue/Coronation Road intersection. We are currently waiting for the contractor to paint the markings on site.
- Request for broken yellow lines at intersection of Coronation Road and Archers Road. We are also proposing a roundabout at the Archers Road/Coronation Road intersection. Parking restrictions will be installed at the corners of the intersection as part of this project. This work will be completed between January and June 2020. Find out more about that consultation.
- Request to investigate traffic speed on Coronation Road. We will be installing a roundabout at the Archers Road/ Coronation Road intersection. This should slow down vehicles speeds on Coronation Road. This work will be completed before June 2020.
These works are planned during the next six months, 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.
