Hunua Rd, Papakura – Broken yellow lines

Consultation status: closed 26 September 2017

Proposal reference: BYL-164

We are proposing to install broken yellow lines (no stopping parking restrictions) at selected locations on Hunua Road in Papakura.

Why the changes are needed

Cars parked near the intersections of Margaret Williams Drive and Croskery Road obstruct the drivers view when turning onto Hunua Road. We are proposing these parking restrictions in response to local concerns for driver safety.

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

  • Requests for broken yellow lines to be installed along additional stretches of Hunua Rd to prevent parked cars from causing access and visibility issues at driveways. We are proposing parking restrictions (broken yellow lines) on Hunua Rd at the intersections of Croskery Rd and Margaret Williams Dr. This road has high volumes of traffic, so it is essential drivers have clear visibility. In order to minimise the loss of parking spaces in this area, we are unable to make any additional changes to the proposed parking restrictions near driveways where the volume of traffic is lower.
  • Requests that the proposed broken yellow lines be reduced on Hunua Rd and Croskery Rd. Respondents are concerned that the removal of parking will be detrimental to business in the area. The extent of the proposed parking restrictions (broken yellow lines) has been carefully considered in order to maintain the safe and efficient passage of traffic while minimising the loss of parking spaces. We are unable to make any further changes to our plans.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.
Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
