We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to install new 'No stopping at all times' parking restrictions along the bend outside 10 and 23 Mulroy Place in Pinehill. This involves removal of four on-street parking spaces.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are needed to improve vision and safety for drivers travelling on Mulroy Place. Our investigations have found that vehicles parked on this bend block visibility for drivers travelling on Mulroy Place.
This project will proceed with minor changes, including the removal of broken yellow lines outside property #23 Mulroy Place from the original plan. A summary of the community feedback we received and answers to questions and concerns is below.
- Suggestion that yellow lines be marked only on one side of entire street with exception for the off-street parking bays.
A review of the proposal was made. In response to the suggestions we believe that there is no need for broken yellow lines on the southern side of the street. The proposal will proceed with broken yellow lines outside #10 Mulroy Place only. Parking is in high demand on Mulroy Place but parking removal has to be done where safety is a major issue. Considering the characteristics of the road, we can't justify the need to extend the broken yellow lines on the entire street.
- Concern regarding high speed at which drivers take the bend on Mulroy Place.
It was noticed that there is a safety issue due to the lack of visibility approaching the bend. For this reason, we will proceed with the installation of broken yellow lines outside property 10 Mulroy Place only. We are currently developing a plan to reduce speeds on Auckland’s roads. This plan will identify the highest priority areas for the initial roll out of speed reduction, on approximately 10% of our road network, including residential areas. The new area-based focus recognises that traffic-calming changes on one street have a flow-on effect on the surrounding neighbourhood. This plan will support all drivers to travel at the appropriate speed and to the road condition. In addition to speed reduction, we also intend to make infrastructural changes to encourage drivers to slow down. We intend to carry out these changes over a three-year period from 2019, targeting delivery to a small number of residential areas each year. These areas have been prioritised to reduce the incidence and impact of crashes. This is based on several factors, including the number of crashes, safety risk, traffic speed, land use and concerns raised by local residents and their elected representatives. More information, including the residential areas that will be prioritised for further investigation will soon be available on the AT website.
This work will happen between March to May 2019, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will notify all affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
