Consultation status: closed 23 May 2017
Extend the existing No stopping at all time restrictions (broken yellow lines) lines outside 105 - 107 Fairview Avenue.
Why the changes are needed
Our investigations have shown vehicles parked at this location reduce visibility for vehicles exiting from Travis View Drive.
The proposed extension to the No stopping at all time restrictions will provide sufficient visibility for drivers to exit safely.
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 for additional no stopping restrictions within the intersection. The intersection of Fairview Drive and Travis Park Drive is wide enough to allow two-way traffic. We believe that removing more parking would encourage drivers to speed which will create an unsafe environment.
- Request to prohibit parking on one side of the road or for additional no parking restrictions. Our investigations have concluded there are no significant concerns and removing more parking on Fairview Drive is not required. The proposed extension to the existing no stopping restriction will be sufficient to allow drivers to safely exit Travis View Drive. Furthermore, Fairview Drive is wide enough to allow two-way traffic, despite the parked cars on both sides.
- Request to consider speed bumps to control traffic speeds. Our investigations have concluded there is no need to install speed humps on Fairview Drive at this stage. The presence of parked vehicles encourages drivers to slow down by creating a perceived narrowing of the roadway. We will monitor and evaluate our improvements and make any adjustments if necessary to achieve the right outcomes for the community.
We expect to introduce this work throughout 2017/2018, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will inform all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
