Consultation status: closed 18 November 2016
We are seeking feedback on a proposal to add time-restricted parking on Bucklands Beach Road.
This proposed change comes from public concerns about restricted vehicle access caused by cars parked on Bucklands Beach Road (southbound). When drivers park here traffic movement is reduced to one lane for vehicles travelling through or turning right, which leads to congestion - especially during morning school peak times, when drivers turn right into the school.
Our site visits confirm that there is an issue, and to improve accessibility, we propose parking restrictions:
- Between 8am and 9am on school days.
- Between 2.30pm and 3pm on school days.

Overall, the proposal didn’t receive support from the community. While there would be benefits to the proposal, it is not critical to the operation of the network. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will not proceed any longer.
