Consultation status: closed 22 August 2016
AT proposed to install new No stopping at all times (NSAAT) restrictions on Roberts Road in Glenfield. In particular we proposed the following improvements:
- Install broken yellow lines extending from the existing lines outside 27 Roberts Road to the driveway of 21 Roberts Road.
- Install broken yellow lines between the driveways of 22 and 32 Roberts Road.
Why changes are needed
When cars park next to the two traffic islands on Roberts Road, there is not enough space for vehicles - especially buses and trucks - to pass safely.
The proposed broken yellow lines will prevent cars from parking too close ot the traffic island and improve both visibility and accessibility.
We received positive feedback with some specific concerns raised. As a result, the proposal will proceed without changes.
Can bollards be installed to stop cars parking on the grass verge?
We do not install bollards on grass berms to prevent car parking as it is illegal to park on grass berms. If the illegal parking continues, contact our Parking Enforcement team on (09) 355 3553 with vehicle details to request a parking officer visit.
Can there be 'Residents Only' parking?
Residential Parking Schemes are used in older suburbs where many properties do not have off street parking. The available off street parking is considered adequate to meet the parking demands of residents and a residential parking scheme is not applicable to Roberts Road.
Any cars parked on the narrow section of the road will still cause accessibility issues to buses and other heavy vehicles, whether they are residents or visitors
We expect to start this work before June 2017, subject to any further design changes or funding issues.
Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
