We are proposing to install broken yellow lines (No Stopping At All Times) in Noeleen Street, Glenfield.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are required as parked vehicles are causing accessibility issues for vehicles in this section of Noeleen Street. The proposal will improve the accessibility for the affected parties.
The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
- Request to have broken yellow lines installed all along Noeleen Street. Broken yellow lines are proposed wherever necessary and we believe that overuse of these restrictions particularly where it is already illegal to park decreases their impact and may inadvertently send the message to motorists that they may park over driveways that do not have such markings in place, therefore no further broken yellow lines are necessary be installed.
- Request for broken yellow lines on the opposite side of the street to 53A/53B Noeleen Street. This section of road is 4.8m wide which leaves 2.5m for emergency vehicles to drive through. Also there is very low volume of traffic and so less chance for conflict of vehicles.
- Concern that the proposal has no cycling component. Noeleen Street is a no exit type of road and it is not a part of cycle route.
- Suggestions to install broken yellow lines between the houses 13 & 19 (14 to 22) on both sides of the road. This section of the road is not considered as narrow as there is enough space for two parked cars and a vehicle can get through. Auckland Transport acknowledges that on-street parking is a valuable and shared community resource. Therefore its removal is only carried out where a significant safety or accessibility issue has been identified. Extension of broken yellow lines cannot be justified.
- Request that a parking officer visits the site a few times after the work to ensure the broken yellow lines are adhered to. Once broken yellow lines are installed, it becomes enforceable.
- Request to make a new parking area on the council land next to number 40 like the one outside 41/43. While this request does not fall within the scope of this proposal which focuses on broken yellow lines at Noeleen Street, Glenfield, we have passed your concerns onto the relevant AT team for further investigation.
We expect to introduce this work between July 2018 and June 2019, subject to further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all affected residents prior to construction work.
