Auckland Transport is proposing to extend broken yellow lines further along the eastern edge of Rangiwai Road, up to the bend.
Why the changes are needed
Our investigations show that vehicles parked along this small stretch of Rangiwai Road often block through access for larger vehicles. This proposal aims to eliminate access issues at this location, particularly for garbage collection trucks and emergency service vehicles.
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 very minor changes to the next stage of detailed planning. The revised proposal will reduce the extent of the broken yellow lines by approximately 1-2 metres.
- Request to reduce the extent of the proposed broken yellow lines by half. Depending on the size of the parked vehicle, on-street parking at this location has the potential to severely limit or obstruct access to the cul-de-sac. Installation of broken yellow lines at this location will ensure suitable access for large vehicles and emergency service vehicles.
- Concern over the removal of on-street parking. Although the proposal includes the loss of one parking space, extension of broken yellow lines will greatly improve vehicle accessibility at the narrow entrance to the cul-de-sac. These changes aim to ensure suitable access for emergency service vehicles and other large vehicles.
- Request for additional works includes:
- Request to install a storm drain system along Rangiwai Road to better direct runoff.
- Requests to re-seal and/or widen the road.
While these requests do not fall within the scope of this proposal which focuses on installation of broken yellow lines on Rangiwai Road, we have passed your concerns onto the relevant internal team for further investigation.
We expect to introduce this work between July 2018 and June 2019, subject to further changes in design or funding issues.
Contractors will issue 48-hour notices to all affected residents prior to construction work.
