Consultation status: closed 6 December 2016
We are looking to add No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on portions of Swanson Road in Henderson and to repaint the bus stop lines if they are faded.
Why changes are required
We have listened to concerns raised by local business about a lack of visibility and accessibility on Swanson Road caused by vehicles parking too close to the driveways in the area.
The proposed No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) at the location will help improve visibility and accessibility on Swanson Road.
Thank you everyone for your feedback.
The proposal received mixed 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
- Concerns that there is not enough parking available at the park and ride and this is the primary cause for people parking on Swanson Road. We have also received suggestions that this proposal would not solve the problem but would move it on to another street. Although the proposed No stopping at all times restrictions will not resolve the shortage of parking spaces available at ‘Sturges Station Park & Ride’, they are required to address the visibility issue affecting a high number of motorists at this location.
- Recommendation to remove the vegetation outside No.66 Swanson Road as they restrict visibility. Any vegetation which restricts visibility outside No. 66 Swanson Road will be trimmed as part of the proposed works.
- Request for additional works including the placement of a circular mirror outside 78 Swanson Road. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please provide feedback or report a problem here.
We expect to introduce this work by June 2017, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will issue a 48-hour notice to all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
