Here are a few updates on Onewa Road:

* T3 Cameras: There has been a delay with the installation of the T3 cameras due to an issue getting power to the sites. Vector contractors will be working on this from late-July to mid-August. The cameras should then be live from mid- to late-August. For the first 3 weeks, warning letters will be sent to anyone breaching the T3 rules.

* Clearway: The result of the clearway public consultation was strongly in favour of a clearway. Auckland Transport are due to present the detailed results to the Kaipātiki Local Board soon.

* Red light cameras: I've been asked by a number of people for red light cameras at the intersection of Onewa Rd/Lake Rd due to vehicles running the red and endangering children crossing the road to/from Northcote Primary School. Auckland Transport have advised me that red light cameras are managed by the Police and they have asked the Police to consider installing cameras at this site.

* Traffic light phasing for Onewa Rd/Lake Rd and Onewa Rd/Queen St: I've been contacted by people frustrated that morning traffic turning from Lake Rd onto Onewa Rd are being blocked for several cycles of the traffic lights by Onewa Road traffic that is stopped at the the Queen St intersection. Auckland Transport say: "Auckland Transport have looked at these two staged intersections and have chosen a specific phasing combination to keep Onewa Road flowing, as it is a strategically important corridor for buses. Furthermore, we have already allowed more green time for those coming from Lake Road but are limited by prioritising Onewa Road. Currently, we will not be making any changes to the traffic light phasing at the intersections of Queen Street and Onewa Road and Lake Road and Onewa Road."

The bowling club had owned the building and left it to council after the club folded.

This is a giant step towards a new permanent home for Pest Free Kaipātiki, that will help them to grow and continue their fantastic work in nurturing volunteer groups and neighbourhoods to restore our parks and natural environment.

Thankyou to all of the groups that applied for the space through the recent expressions of interest process.
Attached are the plans that Pest Free Kaipātiki presented to the Local Board as part of their application.

Proposal: Uppingham Crescent, Hillcrest
Auckland Transport is proposing to install no-stopping yellow lines Uppingham Crescent after residents asked for access to be improved on this narrow road. The changes will result in the removal of 19 on-street parking spaces.
From AT: "We understand that removing car parking can be inconvenient. We have visited the street and carefully designed the layout of the yellow lines. By staggering the yellow lines on alternating sides of the street we are able to maximise parking and reduce the loss to 19 spaces. If we painted yellow lines along only one side of the street this would remove 30 parking spaces."

Consultation is open until Monday 5th July.

Or leave comments below and I will pass them on to AT.
