Consultation status: closed 5 May 2017
We are seeking feedback on a proposal to modify parking arrangements on Highgrove Lane in Totara Vale.
We propose to:
- Install P120 (two-hour parking) signs outside 4, 6, 14 and 16 Highgrove Lane, to allow for short-term visitor parking.
- Install 'hockey stick' road markings outside 14-30, 21 and 23 Highgrove Lane, to indicate where drivers can park.
- Install 'V' road markings outside 6 and 8 Highgrove Lane, to indicate where drivers cannot park.
- Install No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) at the end of the cul-de-sac and around the central island.
Why the changes are needed
Highgrove Lane has high parking demand because it is close to the Constellation Drive Park & Ride bus station.
Drivers also park too close to the driveways and on the narrow end of the cul-de-sac, which causes accessibility issues for residents, emergency vehicles and rubbish collection vehicles.
The proposed changes will address the parking issues on this road and improve accessibility for vehicles.
