We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to install new No stopping at all times parking restrictions (broken yellow lines) at the intersection of Hobill Avenue with Kerrs Road in Wiri. This will involve the removal of approximately 5 parking spaces.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are needed to improve the safety and traffic flow at this intersection by making sure that large heavy goods vehicles have enough room to safely manoeuvre. The proposed changes would also improve visibility for drivers for any approaching traffic.
This project will proceed with minor changes to the next stage of detailed planning. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback. A summary of this feedback and answers to community questions and concerns is below.
- This proposal received positive responses from community members and stakeholders who supported improving road safety in Hobill Avenue, Wiri.
- Requests for additional broken yellow lines. The proposal assessment considered the need to create a balance between parking supply, safety and access at this location. Introducing more broken yellow lines beyond where issues have been identified will result in unnecessary parking removal which is a valuable community amenity. However, following the consultation feedback, the proposal now plans to extend broken yellow lines to the driveway of 78 Kerrs Road.
- Requests for alternative parking restrictions, such as a clearway. Broken yellow lines are required to upgrade the existing bus stop to Auckland Transport Code of Practice standard and to improve the safety and operation of this intersection. A clearway will not address the need to have adequate site line and bus access at all times.
- One respondent requested that AT investigate further parking concerns on Hill Road at the end of Grande Vue Road in Manurewa. This will be reviewed separately as part of a future project in this area.
We estimate that this work will happen within the next 6 months, but we will let you know if there are additional changes or delays.
Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
