Meteor Place, Schnapper Rock – Broken Yellow Lines Meteor Place, Schnapper Rock – Broken Yellow Lines
Proposal status: Feedback closed on 13 October 2021.
Reference number: BYL-530
In September 2021, we proposed to paint broken yellow lines on Meteor Place, Schnapper Rock to address access issues caused by parked cars. After reviewing all the feedback, we are proceeding with the work as proposed. These works will help support our Vision Zero goal.
What happens next
We anticipate the changes will be constructed in March 2022.
Thank you for helping us make better decisions for your neighbourhood, informed by your local knowledge. The feedback we received all supported the proposed changes and noted that they would greatly improve visibility around the corners of this road.
A summary of the additional comments and queries we received, and our responses to them, is below.
Request to paint broken yellow lines on both sides of road on the corner outside 6 Meteor Place to prevent potential crashes.
We understand that parked vehicles can cause visibility problems when driving down the road, especially on a bend, so we are planning to paint broken yellow lines on the inner corner of the road to eliminate safety concerns around visibility of oncoming traffic.
These proposed road markings are arranged in a staggered manner to improve access on the road while also helping reduce the speed of drivers on Meteor Place, which is an important safety consideration on local roads. Extending the broken yellow lines further outside 6 Meteor Place will result in the removal of more parking spaces, which AT feels is not required to improve vehicle access to Uppingham Crescent.
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 some improvements to your area.
We have received requests from the community to address access issues caused by parked cars for residents as well as emergency services and waste collection services. We are proposing to paint broken yellow lines on Meteor Place to address this issue.
We are proposing to:
- Paint sections of broken yellow lines along alternating sides of Meteor Place, outside No. 2 and No. 3. This will remove 10 parking spaces.
Auckland Transport would like to work with you to deliver safer roads in your neighbourhood. Meteor Place is a narrow road and cars parked on both sides make driving down the street difficult, especially for emergency services and rubbish collection vehicles. The community has told us that parked cars also prevent residents from accessing their properties. The changes will create a wider and safer road space, improving traffic flow and accessibility. We understand that removing parking can be inconvenient, so we have minimised the removal of parking as much as possible.
