We are proposing to install broken yellow lines at the intersection of Vinceroy Place and Avonleigh Road in Green Bay.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are needed to prevent parked cars from blocking driver visibility for those travelling between Vinceroy Place and Avonleigh Road.
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.
- Many respondents believe that more broken yellow lines are needed for the this proposal to be effective. It has been requested that AT consider extending the broken yellow lines along Avonleigh Road in both directions. Respondents have noted that turning right onto Avonleigh Road is especially bad. There are existing speed cushions on Avonleigh Road which slows down incoming traffic so extending broken yellow lines even further is not justified.
- Respondent has requested broken yellow lines to be installed on Avonleigh Road opposite the Vinceroy Place intersection. Avonleigh Road is wide enough to accommodate both through movement, even with vehicles parked on both sides of the road, and allows for vehicles going in and out of the intersection. Parking is a valuable asset and our investigations showed that there are no considerable safety concerns at this location so it is not appropriate.
- Respondent has raised concerns over the effectiveness of the speed humps on Avonleigh Road and Castleford Street. The respondent believes that cars dodge the humps at speed and would like to see the speed humps on Connaught Street implemented here. According to our traffic data, speed on Avonleigh Road is well below the limit required for further speed calming measures, and therefore, we cannot justify installing new speed humps.
- Respondent believes that the street lighting at this intersection isn’t sufficient. While these requests do not fall within the scope of this proposal which focuses on installation of broken yellow lines on Vinceroy Place, we have passed your concerns onto the relevant AT 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.
