Bleakhouse Road, Mellons Bay - No stopping at all times restrictions

Consultation status: closed 27 January 2017

We are looking to extend the No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) in Bleakhouse Road, near the roundabout intersection with Macleans Road.

Why changes are required

We are responding to public concerns with regard to restricted vehicle accessibility and visibility issues caused by parked vehicles on Bleakhouse Road near the intersection with Macleans Road.

At this particular location, the lane width between a parked car and the traffic island is too narrow for larger vehicles to pass the parked car without mounting the traffic island. We have carried out site visits that have confirmed this issue.

Feedback

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

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.

Specific feedback and proposed solution

  • Suggestion to extend restrictions down Bleakhouse Road and Macleans Road to improve accessibility when turning at the roundabout and also for those exiting their driveways. Although parked cars may be inconvenient, there is a need to provide a balance between the parking requirements for local businesses and the need to maintain reasonable public access on the public roads. In this instance, parked vehicles are not considered to create a significant issue and additional parking restrictions are not required. Should vehicles be parking within 1 metre of a driveway, we encourage residents to report the vehicle to our enforcement team on (09) 355 3553.
  • Request for additional works including a ‘No Exit’ sign for Bleakhouse Road, installation of judder bars and relocation of overhead services. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please provide feedback or report a problem here.

Next stage

We expect to introduce this work by June 2017, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will issue a 48-hour notice to all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
