Notice of Motion - 95 Mokoia Road, Birkenhead

 

Resolution number KAI/2021/28

MOVED by Member A Tyler, seconded by Member M Kenrick:  

That the Kaipātiki Local Board:

a)       note its concern that there will be a serious injury or death outside of 95 Mokoia Road, Birkenhead, due to the angle parking blocking the view of vehicles exiting Birkenhead Bowling Club and Birkenhead Primary School’s shared carpark.

b)       request that Auckland Transport remove the 5 angle parks in front of 95 Mokoia Road and located between the shared vehicle access serving Birkenhead Primary School & Birkenhead Bowling Club and the vehicle access at 97B Mokoia Road and reinstate the parallel parking that was previously in this location as soon as possible to prevent a serious incident from occurring.

c)       note that the angle parks in front of 97B Mokoia Road are not included in the scope of this motion and should be left as they are.

d)       note that as an emergency interim response the board would support the use of planter boxes or plywood boxes such as those recently used by Auckland Transport in a ‘Safer Streets’ project in Onehunga to block off the two angle parks closest to the school carpark entrance (as long as view lines for exiting drivers were not impeded by these) until full reinstatement of these carparks to parallel is able to be completed.

e)       request that the portion of Mokoia Road outside Birkenhead Primary is included for investigation in tranche 2 of the Safe Speeds Programme, which is considering lowering speed limits on roads outside schools.

f)        receive letters and video footage in support of this motion provided by Birkenhead Primary School, Birkenhead Town Centre Association and Birkenhead Bowling Club.
