Proposal status: Feedback open until 1 August 2022

Reference number: BYL-577

We're proposing improvements in your area

In response to requests from the community, we are proposing to paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times lines) between 3 and 13 Kelwyn Road to improve accessibility for buses and emergency service vehicles.

We are proposing to:

  • Paint broken yellow lines between 3 and 13 Kelwyn Road. This would remove approximately 10 on-street parking spaces.

Residents have raised concerns about access issues along the bend on Kelwyn Road. When cars are parked on both sides of the road, the road is reduced to a single lane. This creates a pinch point that is difficult to navigate for buses and emergency service vehicles.

Painting broken yellow lines will help to keep the road clear and improve access for large vehicles by limiting parking to just the outer side of the bend. These parking restrictions may be inconvenient, but they will improve safety and access for everyone on the road.
