Kenderdine Road, Papatoetoe - no stopping at all times restriction

Consultation status: closed 6 December 2016

We are planning to install No stopping at all times restriction (broken yellow lines) along Kenderdine Road, around the pedestrian crossing and at the intersection with Chestnut Road.

Why changes are required

As Kenderdine Road experiences high volumes of traffic it is essential that the two lanes of traffic are clear at all times. The No stopping at all times restrictions on Kenderdine Road will help improve visibility at the existing zebra crossing.

Feedback

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed with changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

The changes to the proposal are:

  • Minor modifications to the lane arrangements proposed to minimise parking removal between the pedestrian crossing and Chestnut Road. Please view updated consultation drawings above.

Specific feedback and proposed solution

  • Residents are concerned that visitors will have nowhere to park and they would like parking to be available during school drop off and pick up times. We have also received a suggestion that the proposed No stopping at all times restriction outside properties 76-88 Kenderdine Road would be excessive because this section of road doesn’t experience high volumes of traffic. Therefore the proposal has been modified to minimise any parking loss, however removal is still required along the western kerb line to ensure adequate visibility for the intersection.
  • Suggestion that the No stopping at all times restriction will make the road clearer which will lead to vehicles travelling at higher speeds. The traffic data from Kenderdine Road indicates that the vehicle speeds are appropriate for the road environment.

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.
