6.1

Petition – Wyon Street Traffic Calming Measures

Evan Chadwick, resident of Wyon Street, presented a petition regarding Traffic Calming Measures in Wyon Street. 

The petition, which contained 51 signatures, was tabled.

The prayer of the petition states:

Wyon Street has developed into a street that serves more than just the residents of Wyon Street and Hulbert Street.  Cars, buses and trucks use Wyon Street to bypass the busy Linwood Avenue/Buckleys Road intersection.  This has led to an increase of traffic using Wyon Street and because of the street’s straight orientation many motorists are driving over the speed limit.

We, the undersigned support Wyon Street residents to request the Council to:

·         Install traffic calming devices.

·         Prohibit Heavy Vehicles using Wyon Street.

·         Prohibit the right hand from Buckleys Road (from Bromley Park/New Brighton direction) into Wyon Street.

That the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

3.       That staff advice be provided in the Board’s August 2019 Area Report.
