Consultation status: closed 31 January 2018
Proposal reference: BYL-209
We are proposing to install a section of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times restrictions) at the cul-de-sac head on Namsan Close.
Our investigations showed that vehicles parking on the cul-de-sac head pose turning difficulties for rubbish trucks as well as for residents coming in and out of their driveways because the street is narrow. The island in the cul-de-sac head has parking bays which provides some parking for residents.
The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will not proceed and instead a white triangle marking will be implemented at the end of the cul-de-sac (in front of property number 41) because the width of that kerb space is not big enough for a standard vehicle to park legally at.
In agreement of the broken yellow lines in principle but not in the area they are proposed to be implemented at. Taking into consideration the consultation results, the broken yellow lines will not be installed due to large parking demand on this street. However, a white triangle marking will be installed at end of the cul-de-sac head around the curve in front of property number 41 as the kerb space width there is not big enough for a standard sized vehicle to park outside this house legally. The purpose of the white triangle is to indicate that there is not enough space along that kerb for a standard sized vehicle to park. However, motorbikes or smaller sized vehicles can park there as long as they are not within 1 metre of the driveways. Our investigations showed that there are no safety issues to justify adding more broken yellow lines considering that it is a local residential road with low traffic volumes.
A complaint about a number of cars that have been parked illegally on the parking island opposite number 31 Namsan Close (i.e. on the right-hand side of the road) making it extremely difficult to manoeuvre large vehicles around and once they were removed, there was no longer a problem. We recommend you call AT parking enforcement at 09 353 3553 if this happens again in the future.
Requests for additional works which include a request for broken yellow lines along the turns on Fairview Avenue as currently it is very dangerous to drive around the curve when there are cars are parking there. This request is out of scope for this proposal which focuses on broken yellow lines at Namsan Close only. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please fill in a feedback form or report a problem to be fixed.
Auckland Transport intends to send out an ‘inappropriate parking’ letter to make suggestions to residents and visitors on how to park with consideration on the street.
