Strike action scheduled for next week involving drivers for NZ Bus has been withdrawn by First Union and Tramways Union.

However, drivers will meet on Tuesday (24 April) to ratify the settlement to the dispute. This meeting means NZ Bus services will be cancelled after morning peak. Services on Tuesday will be disrupted between 9:30am and 2:30pm, some services immediately before or after this could also be affected.

Bus services run by other operators are not affected and train and ferry services will run as usual on Tuesday.

Auckland Transport would like to thank our customers for their patience.

Fordham Street, Beach Haven - No stopping at all times restrictions Fordham Street, Beach Haven - No stopping at all times restrictions

Consultation status: closed 1 March 2017

We are proposing to install new No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) to the end of Fordham Street in Beach Haven.

Why the changes are required

Accessibility and usability for emergency vehicles and other larger vehicles are adversely affected when cars park at the head of the cul-de-sac.

Feedback

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 the No stopping at all times restrictions. On-Street parking is a valuable community resource and its removal reduces the local amenity. At this location not all residents have off-street parking and therefore rely on the availability of on-street parking. The proposal’s No stopping at all times restrictions address the narrowness of the street and will allow rubbish and emergency vehicles to manoeuvre appropriately.

Next stage

We expect to introduce this work by August 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.
