We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to install broken yellow lines along the western side of Waerenga Place and around the intersection with Daffodil Street. This would involve the removal of 6 on-street parking spaces.
Why the changes are needed
The proposal is expected to improve accessibility to the end of Waerenga Place for rubbish trucks and emergency service vehicles.
Installation of broken yellow lines at the entrance will also improve visibility for drivers at the intersection with Daffodil Street.
This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback. A summary of this feedback and answers to community questions and concerns is below.
- This proposal received positive responses from community members and stakeholders who supported the installation of broken yellow lines along the western side of Waerenga Place and around the intersection with Daffodil Street.
- Requests for broken yellow lines:
- On the eastern side of Waerenga Place.
- On both sides of Waerenga Place.
- On both sides beginning at the intersection through to the driveway of property No. 26.
Broken yellow lines are on the Western side of Waerenga place due to the driveway. This minimises the loss of on street parking. The road is approximately 6m wide and the accessibility issue was due to vehicles parking on both sides of the road, but removing parking on one side is sufficient. The issue is at Waerenga place therefore does not need to be extended at the intersection
- Concern that the proposal will mean more cars parking along the eastern side of the road.
Daffodil Street is greater than 7 meters, therefore there is sufficient space for all vehicles including emergency vehicles to pass through if vehicles are parked on eastern side. Vehicles should not park within 1 meter of any driveways. If this is found to be the case then parking enforcement will need to be contacted.
- Request to widen Waerenga Place.
Auckland Transport doesn’t currently have any plans to widen Waerenga Place as it is currently greater than 7 meters wide and there is no reason to widen it further.
- Concern over vandalism of parked cars at this location.
This is a policing issue and the Police should be contacted if any vandalism is found.
- Request to construct a low wall along the western side of Waerenga Place to better protect children who play on the Reserve from moving traffic.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This will be brought up with Parks and Recreation for further investigation.
This work will happen on or before June 2019, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
