Colombo Rd and George St intersection, Waiuku - no stopping at all times restriction

Consultation status: closed 25 October 2016

We are seeking feedback on a proposal to add No Stopping at All Times restrictions (broken yellow lines) at the intersection of Colombo Road and George Street, Waiuku.

This proposed change comes from concerns raised by the public about restricted vehicle access caused by cars parked at the corners of this intersection.

Our site visits confirm that there is restricted vehicle accessibility and we are proposing broken yellow lines to improve accessibility

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

  • Request that there be speed control installed along George Street. Available speed data shows that the majority of drivers are travelling at or below the speed limit. Recorded crash data for George Street shows that there has been no reported speed related crashes along the route during the last 5 years. These factors suggest that it is highly unlikely that physical calming measures would be warranted for the route.
  • Suggestion that there be diagonal parking to provide extra parking outside the cemetery grounds. The request for additional angles parking for the cemetery needs to be directed to Auckland Council, as any additional angled parking would need to be within the cemetery grounds. Additional angled parking within the road reserve would not be feasible or justifiable at this stage.
  • Request that there be 24 hour parking restrictions around the school area down one side of the road. This section of George Street has not been assessed as part this project. The section fronting the school is around 10m in width and therefore it is not classified as a narrow road requiring parking restrictions. If you have specific issues related to the school and road operation and 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.
