Sunnybrae Road, Hillcrest - Broken yellow lines

Consultation status: closed 4 August 2017

Proposal reference: BYL-146

We wrote to you in July 2016 regarding a proposal to introduce Broken Yellow Lines on Sunnybrae Road, outside #1 Benders Avenue and #97 Sunnybrae Road.

There has been a change of scope in this project which caused delays, and we now are proceeding with the installation of Broken yellow lines, as well as upgrading two bus stop markings on Sunnybrae Road.

Parked cars on the road, outside properties, are causing accessibility and visibility issues for road users, resulting in congestion and safety concerns.

Upgrades to bus stop markings are in accordance with Auckland Transport Code of Practice (ATCOP) and will provide space for buses to pull in and out smoothly and safely.


The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed with changes to the next stage of detailed planning. 

Specific feedback

  • Extend broken yellow lines all the way to the driveway of 91 Sunnybrae Road (opposite the Holland Road intersection). We will extend the proposed broken yellow lines to the driveway of No.91 to provide a safer environment for the intersection of Sunnybrae Road and Holland Road.
  • No stopping in the intersection hatching for the Sunnybrae/Coronation intersection. The intersection hatching markings are out of scope of this proposal. We will address this as a separate issue.
  • The removal of on-street parking will make it easier to progress cycling infrastructure in the future.  If anything, the project scope of applying broken yellow lines could be increased. The scope of proposed broken yellow lines is to improve the accessibility and visibility on Sunnybrae Road near the intersection with Coronation Road. For cycling infrastructure, we will conduct an assessment along the road in another project.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.
Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
