Te Makuru Lane, Maraetai – Broken Yellow Lines Te Makuru Lane, Maraetai – Broken Yellow Lines

Proposal status: Closed

Reference number: BYL-622

Proposal outcome

In May 2023, we consulted the community about our proposal to improve access for residents as they enter and exit their driveways at Te Makuru Lane, Maraetai. 

After carefully considering community feedback, we are not proceeding with the proposal. 

Next steps 

We will continue to monitor the area and, if required, review the parking usage next year. 

Community Feedback 

Thank you for helping us make better decisions for your neighbourhood, informed by your local knowledge. We heard from residents that the reasons for the proposed changes did not represent the general sentiment of the community and there were concerns about the potential loss of parking spaces in the area. Due to this, we decided to not proceed with the works. 

We also received various requests from respondents and submitted them for investigation. Should you need to follow up on the requests, kindly give us a call at 09355 3553 using the reference numbers below:

  • Suggestion to install broken yellow lines opposite the entrance from Maraetai School Road to Te Makuru Lane – CAS-741545-V1B4L8
  • Request to prune trees planted on the road as it causes visibility issues – CAS-741548-N7P8Z0
  • Suggestion to turn street into a one-way lane from west to east to improve access – CAS-741552-L4N2H4

We're proposing improvements in your area

We have heard concerns from some residents that it’s difficult to access their driveways when vehicles are parked on the other side of the road.

We are proposing to:

  • Install broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) in some segments of the north side of Te Makuru Lane. The proposal will remove 11 parking spaces to improve access to residents from both sides of the road. We understand that removing parking can be inconvenient, so we have minimised the removal as much as possible, while prioritising the safety of all road users.
  • Remove half of the broken yellow lines between 17 and 19 Te Makuru Lane to accommodate additional on-street parking.

We want to work with you to deliver safer roads in your neighbourhood. These changes would:

  • Improve safety and access for residents as they enter and exit their driveways.
  • Make sure that the narrow road is always kept clear and that all large vehicles, especially rubbish trucks and emergency vehicles, have easy access to the road.

What happens next

  • We’ll listen to all the feedback we receive, and then decide the best way to move forward.
  • We’ll post the outcome of this proposal and a summary of community feedback on this webpage.
  • We can email you the proposal outcome as soon as it’s ready – just select that option when you fill in the survey.
