We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to install new signage and No Stopping at All Times parking restrictions along the intersection of Onedin Place and Konini Road, Titirangi.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are expected to improve safety at this intersection as parked cars have been blocking visibility for other vehicles.
This project will proceed with changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
A summary of the community feedback we received and answers to questions and concerns:
- Request to extend broken yellow lines further along Onedin Place to improve visibility. Following requests we will be extending the broken yellow lines slightly further along Onedin Place.
- Request for broken yellow lines to be extended on the left hand side from Onedin Place down Konini Road to Kaurilands Road as parked cars on both sides on the road are causing traffic flow to go through the middle of the road. Konini Road is a very wide road that can accommodate having cars parked on both sides of the road whilst maintaining traffic flow. It is fine for traffic flows to be single lane at times as there are a number of points where vehicles can pass by using driveways. However following requests we will be extending broken yellow lines by one extra car length to the left to improve visibility.
- Concerns over a crash risk on Onedin Place and Konini Road, and requests for speed calming measures to prevent cars speeding eg Speed bumps.
Our investigations found that there have been no reported crashes relating to speed on Onedin Place or Konini Place in the last 5 years, suggesting there is not a significant risk. We also take into consideration crash statistics (including those with pedestrians involved), these are used as an important indicator of the risk for pedestrians and other road users.
Onedin Place is a residential cul-de-sac with low traffic volumes, as a result we are currently not planning to install speed calming measures along it.
Following our on-site survey we observed a substantial amount of vehicles travelling above the speed limit along Konini Road but we identified no other significant safety concerns in addition to this. As a result we have placed Konini Road on our list for potential future speed calming treatment and we will continue to monitor the situation.
- Request for a compulsory 'Stop' sign instead of 'Give Way' sign. A 'Stop' sign is not required here as we believe that there will be sufficient visibility, especially after the installation of broken yellow lines around the intersection.
- Request for measures to improve visibility on other side of road as well as parked cars block visibility for residents. We believe the proposed parking restrictions will also improve visibility on the other side of the road.
- Request for trees which are encroaching footpaths to be trimmed to improve visibility. This request has been passed onto the appropriate team to further investigate.
This work will happen between September 2018 and June 2019, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents prior to construction starting.
