Proposal reference: BYL-169

We are looking to install Broken Yellow Lines; on the Northern side of Coronet Place, between Maple Street and Sceptre Drive, on the southern side of Coronet Place, between Sceptre Drive and the end of the road (24 Coronet Place), and on both sides at the intersection of Coronet Place and Sceptre Drive.

Coronet Place is a narrow road, when vehicles are parked on both sides of the road it causes accessibility issues for larger vehicles, such as emergency vehicles and rubbish trucks. Vehicles parking close to the intersection of Coronet Place and Sceptre Drive cause safety for pedestrians trying to cross the road and vehicles trying to turn at the intersection.

Feedback

The proposal received positive 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 (please see revised drawing).

Specific feedback

  • Extend the broken yellow lines down one side of Sceptre Place as this road is narrower than Coronet Place. We acknowledge that on-street parking is a valuable and shared community resource. Therefore its removal is only carried out where a significant safety or accessibility issue has been identified.
  • Extend the Broken Yellow Lines to the intersection of Coronet Place and Maple Street. We have taken this feedback into consideration and will extend the broken yellow lines around the corners of this intersection.
  • Remove the broken yellow lines from the top end of Coronet Place (outside properties 15-21) as there are never cars parked on both sides of the road here. One of our Traffic Engineer's visited the site and observed accessibility difficulties due to cars parked on both sides of the road.
  • Request for additional works, including a request for broken yellow lines on Henry Street. The request is out of scope for this project. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please provide feedback.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.

Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
