We're making changes in your area
We are improving access and safety in your area by introducing broken yellow lines at a number of locations throughout Addison Development. This is a necessary step in ensuring the continued safe operation of these local roads and in protecting the well-being of residents and of those that most frequently use them.
This will involve parking removal in the following areas:
- Narrow Roads - We will be removing parking along one side of roads less than 6.8 metre wide. Parking on both sides of these roads can obstruct or limit access for larger vehicles, which creates safety concerns for emergency services.
- Around Intersections - We will be reinforcing the NZ Road Code by formally removing parking around intersections. Please note that it is already prohibited to park in these areas. Formalising these restrictions will ensure that drivers have sufficient visibility of any oncoming traffic.
- Pedestrian and Pram Crossings - We will be removing parking leading up to pedestrian crossings and pram ramps. This will allow appropriate visibility for drivers approaching the crossings and pedestrians utilising them.
For details on which roads will be impacted by these changes and to see the exact extent of the planned broken yellow lines, please refer to the project drawings.
Why the changes are needed
In 2017, we began investigating a number of complaints regarding inappropriate parking behaviour within Addison Development. Based on the results of these investigations, we have determined that these roads cannot accommodate the number of vehicles that are currently utilising on-street parking. This can often lead to concerns around visibility and access.
The project aims to achieve a balance between satisfying on-street parking demand and ensuring safe access for people driving, walking, and cycling. We expect that the planned broken yellow lines will better signify to drivers where it is safe and unsafe to park in the area.
This work will happen in 2019 but 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.
