We proposed changes in your area in May 2020
To allow access to large vehicles such as emergency services and rubbish collection services, we proposed to paint broken yellow lines along Juneau Place, Glendene.
Glendene: Safe with us
Auckland Transport cares for your safety. We want to make our roads safe for everyone, people walking and cycling, especially for our kids and senior citizens and people driving. Projects like this one around Juneau Place are another step towards our goal of achieving no deaths or serious injuries on our roads. We are guided by the Vision Zero approach to transport safety, which prioritises human safety over other measures (like minor time saving).
The proposed changes will proceed to the next stage of detailed planning before being painted on the road. Thank you to everyone who responded to our proposal and gave us the chance to better understand your community and concerns. A summary of your feedback and our responses to community questions is below.
- Multiple respondents requested more broken yellow lines on the other side of the road.
We install broken yellow lines in cases of extreme safety issues and overusing these lines defeat that purpose. We believe that extending these lines any further will be unnecessary and once installed they will improve the driveway accessibility for all the residents of Juneau Place. Installing broken yellow lines means permanent loss of parking for the residents therefore, careful consideration was given on choosing the side that will maximise the safety and retain maximum possible parking on street. Having broken yellow lines on the left side will improve the visibility when driving along the street and also retain maximum possible parking spaces.
- Multiple respondents suggested broken yellow lines on the other side of the road so that parked cars do not block the footpath.
Parking on the footpath is illegal and you should call enforcement to have the cars removed. It is considered safer for the pedestrians having broken yellow lines on left side because the footpath is away from the oncoming traffic and gives more time to pedestrians to react. Once installed these restrictions should improve driveway accessibility for all the residents of Juneau Place.
- Respondent requested more broken yellow lines on both sides of the road.
Painting broken yellow lines on both sides can create grass berm issues in the street and the residents would have complete parking loss. The proposed broken yellow lines on the left side will improve the visibility when driving along the street and also retain maximum possible parking spaces.
- Respondent requests removal of some broken yellow lines along Juneau Place.
We have proposed broken yellow lines around the cul de sac head to improve the accessibility for the residents and emergency vehicles. When vehicles are parked around the cul de sac it is difficult for the rubbish trucks or emergency services to manoeuvre. As Juneau Place is a narrow street makes it even more difficult. These changes were proposed with residents safety and accessibility in mind.
- Respondent suggests broken yellow lines will not fix the problem and will cause cars to park the other side of the road.
Painting broken yellow lines on one side of Juneau Place will make sure the access to street is not blocked. This will make it easy for the emergency vehicles and resident to get in and out of the street.
- Respondent suggests parking enforcement rather than broken yellow lines.
Painting broken yellow lines on one side of Juneau Place will make sure the access to street is not blocked. This will make it easy for the emergency vehicles and resident to get in and out of the street. If parking issues continue we suggest calling our enforcement team when you notice any illegal parking on the street.
- Respondent suggests parking enforcement as well as the proposed broken yellow lines.
If parking issues continue after installing the broken yellow lines, we suggest calling our enforcement team when you notice any illegal parking on the street.
This work will happen before October 2020 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.
