Moera Place, Stanmore Bay - no stopping at all times restriction

Consultation status: closed 1 November 2016

We are seeking feedback on a proposal to add No Stopping at All Times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on Moera Place in Stanmore Bay.

To help rubbish trucks, emergency services and residents access the street, we are proposing an extension of the 'No Stopping At All Times' restriction at the location shown in the consultation drawing.

Public concerns have been raised about vehicles having restricted access to the road caused by parked vehicles at the narrow section of Moera Place. We have carried out site visits that have confirmed this issue.

Feedback

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

We have received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed with the following changes to the next stage of detailed planning:

  • Extending the broken yellow lines restrictions to the driveway of 24 Rishworth Avenue to meet the existing broken yellow lines.

Specific feedback and proposed solution

  • We have received concerns about the removal of parking and suggestions that the street would be fine without the yellow lines. If vehicles are parked on either side of the road, other vehicles cannot easily pass through. The road width must be maintained to allow access for any type of vehicles including emergency services and larger vehicles.
  • Request that the broken yellow lines be limited to only one side of Moera Place. The reason we are adding the staggered arrangement of broken yellow lines is to reduce the speed of traffic.
  • Request to install broken yellow lines on Rishworth Avenue at the intersection with Moera Place to improve visibility when turning out of Moera Place. The proposed parking restrictions will ensure access is maintained for emergency services and larger vehicles. However, should you notice any issues with accessibility, we encourage you to report it here.

Next stage

We expect to introduce this work by June 2017, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
