Hi all the good people of Mt Albert, as we all know and have seen in a combined disaster, Auckland transport and Council have ripped up our village roads, removed parking, caused massive traffic congestion and put a massive strain on local businesses to the point of closure for some. And for what? excessive footpaths that are bare and empty and after struggling will have to pay more to even sit outside, a bike lane that's nothing but a ugly black asphalt strip. Although mid completion enough is enough and if possible would like to try and at least save the left slip lane turning left from new north road onto Mt Albert road. AT is removing this to create a unnecessarily so called pocket park on the corner. This removal will cause more traffic congestion, delays as well as send more drivers onto side streets such as Loyd ave and Allendale road. Along with this the entrance to the ANZ bank will be at virtually the foot of the intersection, an accident entrance waiting to happen. In total there are also 8 unrestricted parking spaces which will be reduced to only 3 along with the 3 of 9 left across the street to add a bus stop, why do we need to remove so much parking for a bus stop when there is one 30 seconds down the road in front of a good thing. It's a blatant sabotage of our streets to force people to pay for public transport. Please sign this petition to show that we are residents do not want to see this useful slip lane removed and a better option created, AT used the excuse "it's too dangerous" I've been here for 10 years and have never seen anyone hit there. if it's safety they want simply put in a proper crossing and a large speed bump. Please sign and share this petition as time is of the utmost importance. Thank You
