Rata Vine Drive, Wiri – Parking Improvement / Kerb Buildout Rata Vine Drive, Wiri – Parking Improvement / Kerb Buildout

Proposal status: Feedback open until 3 April 2023

Reference number: RSU2021-069B

We're proposing improvements in your area

In response to a request from the Rawiri Community House, we are proposing to create 2 new parking spaces outside 1 Rata Vine Drive. This will require extending the kerb out along the south corner of Rata Vine Drive.

We are proposing to:

  • Paint 2 parking spaces outside 1 Rata Vine Drive.
  • Extend the kerb out at the corner outside 1 Rata Vine Drive with new tactile pavers at the crossing point. These are yellow guidance paving markers to help visually impaired people find their way to the crossing and safely across roads.

Due to recent safety improvement work, the Rawiri Community House has raised concerns about the lack of parking spaces for their visitors outside of their building. We have investigated these concerns and are proposing these improvements.

These proposed changes would improve parking availability and accessibility for visitors visiting the Rawiri Community House. Extending the kerb is necessary to ensure that people can use the proposed parking spaces safely, however it may cause intermittent queuing when drivers are waiting to turn into Great South Road during peak times. We would like to hear your thoughts.
