Proposal status: Feedback closed 21 June 2021
Reference number: BYL-510
In June 2021, we proposed to install broken yellow lines to improve driveway accessibility on Gaede Terrace. The proposed broken yellow lines were in response to requests from residents who were unable to easily access their driveways. After reviewing all the feedback, we are proceeding with the following minor changes. These works will help support our Vision Zero goal.
- The revised proposal reduces the length of broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) to lessen the impact on residents on-street parking needs. We will only install broken yellow lines on the View Road end of Gaede Terrace (on both sides). This will result in the removal of 12 on-street car parks.

What happens next
We anticipate the changes will be installed between August and October.
Thank you for helping us make better decisions for your neighbourhood, informed by your local knowledge. A summary of your feedback and our responses to community questions is below.
- Concern that parking controls will cause parking difficulties for residents and their guests/visitors.
We understand your concern with the removal of parking however the primary objective of any road is to provide access and exit to vehicles, including emergency service vehicles, to the properties or businesses on that road. This proposal intends to improve access to and from properties on Gaede Terrace when using their driveways which are often obstructed by parked vehicles. While we have listened to feedback and reduced the length of the proposed broken yellow lines. If vehicles continue to be parked inappropriately (on the footpath, opposite each other or in the head of the cul-de-sac) the restrictions may be applied as per the original proposal. Auckland Transport does not recommend relying upon on-street parking as this is a public asset and is subject to change as the community’s needs and objectives for the road change.
- Concern that the proposed broken yellow lines are excessive. Recommendation that the broken yellow lines are installed only from the entry of Gaede Terrace to property 1A-2 where driveway access has been an issue.
We have listened to your feedback and will only install restrictions at the View Road end of Gaede Terrace (on both sides), removing just 12 car parks instead of the 24 originally proposed.
We're proposing improvements in your area
We have received requests from the community to resolve the issue of parked cars on both sides of Gaede Terrace blocking access to their driveways, and we are asking for your views.
We are proposing to paint broken yellow lines on Gaede Terrace, along the west side, around the turning head and on the east side near the View Road intersection. This will result in the loss of approximately 24 parking spaces.
We understand that removing parking can be inconvenient, so we have minimised the proposed number of spaces removed while ensuring residents can easily access their driveways and that vehicles, including emergency services and waste management trucks, have adequate space to safely turn around.
