·     Allowing residents and their visitors to park outside their frontages at times that would normally be taken by commuter parking.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Residents are not able to park all day in the area where the parking restrictions apply.

4.4       Community Feedback

4.5       Community consultation on the Joyce Crescent - Proposed Parking Restrictions was undertaken from Wednesday 25 May to Tuesday 7 June 2016. The proposal for this street was to install 120 minute time limited parking restrictions. These restrictions are to apply from 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday, March-November.

4.6       A total of 32 leaflets were hand delivered to residents of Joyce Crescent.

4.7       During the course of the engagement, Council received seven submissions.  Four respondents were in support of the proposed parking restrictions, three respondents did not support the proposal. All respondents indicated that the proposed areas of no stopping were needed.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       Recently the Council has received requests from the residents of Joyce Crescent to review the parking issues being experienced in this street.  Currently the issue is that all day commuter parking is allowable within this area.

5.2       After site visits and further investigations into the request it was evident that this area was being parked out by commuters.  This is due to increasing demands for unrestricted parking in the vicinity of the University.

5.3       Additionally the site visits highlighted additional areas of no stopping restrictions required to improve safety at the intersection with Ilam Road and outside numbers 6 to 10 Joyce Crescent.

5.4       The majority of residential streets within the vicinity if the University already have some form of parking restrictions installed.  As the demand for parking is increasing throughout this area commuters have become more willing to parking further away from their destinations, therefore more residential streets like Joyce Crescent are being constantly parked out.

5.5       The proposal to install the restrictions should deter the majority from parking on this residential street therefore allowing residents and their visitors to park outside their frontages at times that would normally be taken by commuter parking.

6.5       Four respondents were in support of the proposed parking changes, three were not in support. All were in favour of installing the areas of Proposed No Stopping. All three submitters that were not in favour stated that they have limited off-street parking and considered the proposal unfair as it denies residents all day parking in their own street.

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to provide the Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board with an update to their request that staff investigate, address and put forward solutions surrounding pedestrian and cyclist safety issues at the Harewood/Gardiners/Breens intersection.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That the Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board:

1.         Receive the information in the Harewood/Gardiners/Breens intersection pedestrian safety report.

 

 

3.   Key Points

3.1       The Harewood/Gardiners/Breens intersection is stop controlled with splitter islands on the Gardiners and Breens road approaches.  Harewood Road is multi laned with left turn/through, through and right turn lanes on each approach.  This creates a wide intersection and traffic flows on Harewood Road can make it difficult for the side road traffic to cross or turn onto
Harewood Road.

3.2       There are no pedestrian or cyclist facilities immediately at the intersection other than pedestrian cut downs on the splitter islands.

3.3       Safety concerns were raised as part of a deputation made by Julianne Grant at the 14 March 2016 Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board meeting.  The main concern was the safety of pedestrians and cyclists when crossing Harewood Road at the Gardiners/Breens intersection.

3.4       Council staff have undertaken site investigations and noted that there are currently pedestrian refuges in the central median on Harewood Road approximately 50 metres either side of this intersection, (refer to Attachment A for locations).

3.5       These facilities are away from the intersection to provide safer crossing points for pedestrians.  It was considered part of the reason for safety concerns could be that these facilities are not well delineated and there may be a lack of education between schools, parents and the pedestrians that these facilities are the safest place to cross Harewood Road.

3.6       Contractors have recently installed safe routes to school crossing point signs to highlight the points where the pedestrian refuges are located and where to cross Harewood Road, (refer to Attachment B for example of signs).  The pedestrian rails protecting the central refuges have also been upgraded.

3.7       Further to the installation of these signs and rails, collaboration will be carried out with the schools in the area, Isleworth, Breens and Cotswold to promote the location and use of these crossing points via newsletters to parents and through their websites.

3.8       Investigations of the Crash Analysis System (CAS) for reported crashes found that there have been no reported pedestrian or cyclist crashes at or within 50 metres of this intersection, the analysis considered the past 10 years plus 2016 to date (2006-2016).

3.9       Council’s Transport Asset Planning Transport Team (APT) have confirmed that at this stage there is no project in the current Long Term Plan for upgrading the intersection. Currently the APT team are in the process of undertaking a corridor study of the Inner Orbiter Route which covers this section of Harewood Road.  They are also conducting a Western Area Business Case Study. Findings for both are scheduled to be completed prior to the next Long Term Plan.

Summary

3.10    The multi laned stop controlled intersection does create some difficulties for pedestrians trying to cross Harewood Road immediately at the intersection and there are no cyclist facilities.  However there have been no reported pedestrian or cyclist crashes in the last ten years.

3.11    There are no current plans for upgrading the intersection.  The APT studies may identify upgrades that could be included in future programmes.

3.12    There are existing pedestrian crossing cutdowns on the central median of Harewood Road approximately 50 metres either side of the intersection.

3.13    Following investigations, staff have initiated minor improvements to direct and encourage pedestrians to cross Harewood Road where there are the pedestrian facilities as it is safer than crossing at the intersection.
