Council has received a request to convert the road to one-way traffic (west to east, that is, leaving the ferry), and would like to gauge the level of support for this proposal. The most affected people will be those residents/property owners on this section of Seventh Parade, who would only be able to access their properties from the west and would need to travel around the block to access the ferry. Everyone else would be unaffected, unless they currently ignore the local traffic advice and use the street to access the ferry, in which case they would need to leave home about 45 seconds earlier. It's probably a small price to pay for the safety of pedestrians and cyclists. Affected property owners will receive written notification and be invited to make a formal response. This proposal has been put forward as a road safety initiative by community members and is likely to receive Council support unless there are significant and legitimate objections. If you have any comment on the proposal, please contact Martin Richardson on 51539500 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Proposed change to local traffic arrangements. 2011
Council has received a request to change the traffic arrangements in Seventh Parade between Fourth and Eighth Avenues. See the map on right. Also a larger map is in the ferry shed . As most people will be aware, this section of the street is signed as "Local Traffic Only", intended to reduce two-way traffic and prevent vehicle and pedestrian conflict on what is a narrow road pavement with substantial pedestrian activity. This arrangement is ignored by many motorists who use the street as a short-cut to the ferry, rather than the preferred route using Eighth, Fifth and Fourth.
