Why the changes are needed

This is expected to improve accessibility for larger vehicles turning around the cul-de-sac. Installing broken yellow lines will improve the accessibility, and therefore safety at this location.

Proposal outcome

This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback. A summary of this feedback and answers to community questions and concerns is below.

Feedback received

This proposal received positive responses from community members and stakeholders who supported the implementation of broken yellow line parking restrictions of Ambrico Place, New Lynn.

  • Concern that many parking spaces have already been removed from the area, and the proposed addition of broken yellow lines will further limit parking opportunities for visitors and residents. It is important we undertake thorough investigation so parking restrictions are only implemented where a significant safety or accessibility issue has been identified. In this case, our on-site inspection confirmed that large vehicles have accessibility issue due to parked vehicles at the cul-du-sac.
  • Concern that current road markings are confusing and inconsistent. Related request for Auckland Transport to make existing road markings clearer, in particular marking out parks with white lines. This has been passed on to our Parking Design team for further investigation.
  • Concern that making add the broken yellow lines will allow buses, in particular Auckland Transport Metro buses, to use Ambrico Place as a turning bay, increasing the overall traffic of the street. Auckland Transport buses will not be running on Ambrico Place.

Next steps

This work will happen between July and December 2019, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays.

Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
