Consultation status: closed 25 April 2017
We are seeking feedback on a proposal to add No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) outside the entrance of 73 and 75 Glamorgan Drive in Torbay.
When cars park around this bend, there is reduced visibility for oncoming vehicles. The proposed broken yellow lines will allow clear visibility for drivers travelling around this bend and increase traffic safety overall.
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 without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
Specific feedback and proposed solution
- Request that the No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) should be on both sides of Glamorgan Drive and extended further. After thorough investigation, the No stopping at all times restrictions were determined to be of appropriate length and position. The proposed lines provide optimal sight distance ensuring a safer road environment, while still providing adequate parking for the local residents. A major issue with installing No stopping at all times markings on the outer bend is the widening of the road. A wider road encourages drivers to enter the curve at higher speeds, endangering local residents exiting their driveways.
- Concern that vehicles are parking on the grass verge making visibility much worse. We will inform the Auckland Transport Parking team of this issue to be investigated.
- Request for additional works including a request for additional broken yellow lines near Marina Road. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please provide feedback here.
We expect to introduce this work by September 2017, subject to any further changes in design, weather conditions and funding. Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
