Park Hill Road, Birkenhead - Broken yellow lines Park Hill Road, Birkenhead - Broken yellow lines

Proposal status: closed 18 February 2019

Reference number: BYL-372

We're proposing changes in your area

We are proposing to extend the existing broken yellow lines from the Park Hill Road intersection with Glenfield Road along to the driveway of 1 Park Hill Road. This will result in the loss of approximately 3 parking spaces.

Why the changes are needed

These changes are needed to improve accessibility for drivers by ensuring a two-way flow on Park Hill Road at the intersection.

Currently vehicles parked close to the intersection restrict access for cars pulling into and out of Park Hill Road and can cause the road to be reduced to one lane.

As a result, vehicles have to back up when there are cars approaching from the opposite direction. This creates an unsafe environment as the intersection is often busy.

Proposal outcome

This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback. A summary of this feedback and answers to community questions and concerns is below.

Feedback received

  • This proposal received positive responses from community members and stakeholders who supported the introduction of No stopping at all times parking restrictions.
  • Request for further parking restrictions along Park Hill Road to resolve visibility issues.
    We believe the extent of the parking restrictions proposed provide adequate visibility and accessibility at this location. It is important that we take into account the importance of on-street parking to residents and commuters. Therefore, we try to reduce the loss of parking to a minimum while addressing the safety concerns.

Next steps

We estimate that this work will happen by approximately June 2019, and we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
