Why the changes are needed

This is expected to improve road safety by increasing visibility at this intersection. Cars parked near corners are currently blocking visibility for drivers travelling along these streets.

Proposal outcome

This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. A summary of the community feedback we received and answers to questions and concerns is below.

Feedback received

  • Request for extension of broken yellow lines outside driveways at 48-50 Wood Street. Respondents were concerned with access & visibility at this location.
    We do not install broken yellow lines restrictions across driveways. We are however proposing to mark out defined parking areas to ensure drivers do not park within one meter of these driveways. Thereby helping provide better visibility for drivers.
  • Concern that trucks frequently double park on the road outside of and across trade entrance to New World. This blocks the footpath meaning pedestrians need to walk on the road to get around.
    We will pass these concerns onto our parking enforcement team who will investigate targeted enforcement of heavy vehicles entering and exiting this property.
  • Respondents are concerned for the loss of parking. There were requests for additional parking for residents including a range of long-term and short-term parking.
    We are aiming to retain as much public on street parking as possible in this area, due to the high demand for parking facilities.
  • Respondents are concerned about the loss of Parking on the corner of Union Street and Menary Street. Respondents are concerned more broadly for the overall loss of parking in this area.
    Parking is currently prohibited at the corners of intersections. This proposal formalises these existing restrictions. Furthermore, we are extending parking restrictions to make sure that drivers have adequate visibility of pedestrians thereby increasing road safety at this location.

Next steps

This work will happen at the end of February 2019 after going through the broken yellow lines restriction process. We will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will notify all affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
