Proposal status: Closed
Reference number: BYL-541
In January 2022, we proposed changes to address access issues on McQuoid Place, Glenfield. After reviewing all the feedback, we are proceeding with the following minor changes:
- Paint additional broken yellow lines at the intersection of McQuoid Place and Easton Park Parade on the Eastern kerb at the request of residents.
Please see an updated drawing of the change.
These works will help support our Vision Zero goal.
What happens next
We anticipate the changes will be constructed in May 2022.
Thank you for helping us make better decisions for your neighbourhood, informed by your local knowledge. A summary of your feedback and our responses to community questions is below.
Broken yellow lines
- Suggestion to paint additional broken yellow lines on the Eastern side of the road, across from 2 McQuoid Place, to create a place for vehicles leaving McQuoid Pl to wait without blocking vehicles trying to enter.
We will paint additional broken yellow lines around the corner at the intersection of McQuoid Place and Easton Park Parade on the Eastern kerb.
- Request broken yellow lines to be painting in front of 5 McQuoid Place to prevent people parking across driveway.
The cul-de-sac on McQuoid Place has multiple driveways which do not have enough room between them to legally park a vehicle (parked vehicles must be at least 1m away from the side of a driveway). As parking across driveways is already illegal, we do not believe that the installation of broken yellow lines is required, or that it will be effective. However, we appreciate that the continued obstruction of vehicle entrances is both annoying and inconvenient. Please request parking enforcement by ringing us on 09 355 3553 when you encounter this issue.
- Suggestion to cut/trim the tree on the left corner when exiting McQuoid Place as it restricts visibility for traffic exiting and entering the street.
We have passed this request on to the appropriate team who will investigate this issue further.
- Concern that if parking is permitted on the entire eastern side of McQuoid Place (across from where lines are proposed) there is a higher chance of an accident.
We will be adding additional broken yellow lines at the intersection of McQuoid Place and Easton Park Parade. This will further improve the visibility for vehicles entering and exiting the street.
- Concern that allowing vehicles to park on the Eastern side of McQuoid Place will cause traffic congestion - vehicles on Easton Park Pde trying to turn into McQuoid Place will have to wait for exiting vehicles to clear the way.
We have taken this feedback into consideration and will be adding additional broken yellow lines at the intersection of McQuoid Place and Easton Park Parade. This will provide two lanes of traffic on McQuoid Place at the intersection which will address this issue.
We're proposing improvements in your area
Aucklanders have told us that moving around our city safely and easily is important to them.
We are proposing to paint broken yellow lines along one side of McQuoid Place, Glenfield, in response to community requests to address access issues caused by parking.
We are proposing to:
- Install approximately 50 metres of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) along the western kerb on McQuoid Place and at the intersection of Easton Park Parade and McQuoid Place.
AT would like to work with you to deliver safer roads in your neighbourhood. McQuoid Place is a narrow road with a width of 6 metres, and vehicles parking on both sides of the road can cause access issues, especially for emergency services and rubbish collection vehicles.
Members of the community have asked us to address this issue. The changes will create a wider and safer road space, improving accessibility and visibility for residents exiting driveways.
If you would like to post in your feedback, download and print our feedback form template, fill in your details and send it freepost using the address details on the form.
What happens next
- We’ll listen to all the feedback we receive, and then decide the best way to move forward.
- We’ll post the outcome of this proposal and a summary of community feedback on this webpage.
- We can email you the proposal outcome as soon as it’s ready – just select that option when you fill in the survey.
Glenfield: Safe with us
Auckland Transport cares for your safety. We want to make our roads safe for everyone, people walking and cycling, especially for our kids and senior citizens and people driving. Projects like this one around McQuoid Place are another step towards our goal of achieving no deaths or serious injuries on our roads. We are guided by the Vision Zero approach to transport safety, which prioritises human safety over other measures (like minor time saving).
