Nirmal Pl, Sunnyvale – Broken yellow lines Nirmal Pl, Sunnyvale – Broken yellow lines

Consultation status: closed 11 April 2018

Proposal reference: BYL-237

We are proposing to extend broken yellow lines along Nirmal Place, through to the driveway of 17 Nirmal Place on the west side of the road, and through to the driveway of 16 Nirmal Place on the east side of the road. This will remove a total of three on-street parking spaces.

Why the changes are needed

This proposal aims to reduce visibility and access issues around the bend where Nirmal Place meets Sungrove Rise and to provide safer entry and exit for residents accessing their driveways at this location.

Outcome of consultation

The proposal received mixed 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.

The revised design will extend broken yellow lines along the western side of Nirmal Place through to the storm drain outside 15 Nirmal Place. The broken yellow lines originally proposed for the eastern side of Nirmal Place will no longer be installed.

Specific feedback

Broken yellow lines will now be extended through to the storm drain on the western side of Nirmal Place, outside of 15 Nirmal Place. Further investigations and feedback have suggested that broken yellow lines are not needed between the driveways of 16 and 18 Nirmal Place. As such, the design has been revised to remove the broken yellow lines proposed for the eastern side of Nirmal Place.
  • Request to remove the broken yellow lines proposed for the eastern side of Nirmal Place (between the driveways of 16 and 18 Nirmal Place). The design has been revised to remove the proposed broken yellow lines between the driveways of 16 and 18 Nirmal Place. Parking within one metre of a driveway is illegal, which should allow sufficient visibility for residents to safely enter and exit their driveways at this location. If you observe vehicles parked within one metre of your driveway, please contact AT Enforcement on 355 3553.
