It is unsafe for drivers wanting to turn out of the Train Station as they have restricted visibility due to the the parked cars on the Swanson Road. The proposed parking restrictions will remove parking spaces and will improve visibility making it safer to exit the station.

Feedback

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

Specific feedback and proposed solution

  • Recommendation to have the broken yellow lines installed at the entrance as well as the exit from Swanson station. There is an existing 'ENTRY' sign already at this location and there are sufficient broken yellow lines at the entrance. We only implement broken yellow lines where there are visibility and accessibility issues.
  • Suggestion to install signage to help resolve the issue of people using the entrance as an exit. It is illegal to use this entrance to exit from the parking lot and we recommend you contact the police if you notice such behaviour as this is a police matter.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work by June 2018, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
