Proposal

6.5       Affected residents living on this intersection were sent consultation letters on Thursday 2 March 2017 and asked to respond by Wednesday 22 March 2017.

6.6       Four residents replied to the consultation, two from the same residence.  Two suggested minor changes to the no stopping restrictions out in front of their properties, which were agreed and changed.  After these changes the residents were all in support of these proposals.

5.   Context/Background

Information

5.1       Blair Avenue is a local road off Papanui Road.  It is a no exit road with the main southern railway line blocking access to the west.  Therefore, Papanui Road is the only entry/exit point for drivers using Blair Avenue.

5.2       The first section of Blair Avenue is commercial, with Harcourts and the KFC entry point.  The rest of Blair Avenue is residential.

5.3       Presently the parking area on Blair Avenue is an in-between length.  If three cars were parked there they would need to be small cars or parked very close to fit in the gap.  However when two cars are parked it looks like they are not parked very well.

5.4       It is proposed to extend the no stopping restriction at this location to allow two cars to park on Blair Avenue.  This will increase the capacity at this intersection by providing a longer left turning lane.

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2015 - 2025):

4.1.1   Activity: Road Operations

·     Level of Service: 10.0.6 Improve Road Safety: Reduce the number of reported crashes on the network

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Install two wide pedestrian refuge islands (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The two islands and associated changes in line marking create a narrowing of the existing lanes and horizontal deflections, creating a natural desire to drive slower.

·     The introduction of an edge line 3m from the centre line on the southbound carriageway will allow for an area for vehicles reversing out of the angled parking.

·     Improves safety for pedestrians crossing Grampian Street by providing a central refuge.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Loss of 14 on street parking spaces

Community Feedback

4.4       Community Engagement on the Grampian Street Speed Management Measures was  undertaken from 19 January 2017 to 8 February 2017.

4.5       A total of 125 leaflets were hand delivered to Jocelyn Street and Grampian Street between Veitches Road and Claridges Road. The leaflet was also sent to 55 key stakeholders and 13 absentee owners.

4.6       During the course of engagement, Council received feedback from three organisations including New Zealand Automobile Association, Christchurch District Health Board and Christchurch Disability Group.  All three organisational responses were supportive. Five residents also supplied feedback of which one was a petition containing another seven signatories. All five resident responses were opposed to the proposal but acknowledged speeding vehicles was a problem.

4.7       All direct respondents have been communicated with by phone and/or email to discuss their individual project inquiries.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1      

·   Grampian Street is classified as a collector road and has one bus route which runs along the north end between Cavendish Road and Claridges Road. The kerb to kerb width is 12.5m with a single centre line.

·   Casebrook Intermediate School is located on Veitches Road near the intersection with Grampian Street, and a small shopping precinct is located on Grampian Street between Veitches Road and Jocelyn Street.

·   A survey was carried out in 2015 showing 2200vpd and an 85th percentile speed of 57.2km/h.

·   Residents have raised the issue of speeding vehicles on Grampian street.

·   Reported crashes on Grampian Street were retrieved from the Crash Analysis System (CAS) for the five year period from 2011 to 2015.  This showed a total of five crashes during this period. Two of those crashes caused minor injury, and the others were non-injury crashes.

·   During a pedestrian survey the majority of crossings of Grampian Street occurred between Veitches Road and just north of Jocelyn Street.

 

Proposal

5.2       It is proposed to construct two wide refuge islands with associated tapers and No Stopping restrictions to provide necessary sight lines, and to avoid people on bikes getting squeezed by drivers.

5.3       In addition an edge line will be marked 3m from the centre line on the southbound carriageway allowing an area for vehicles reversing out of the angled parking, and will create horizontal deflection for traffic moving along Grampian Street adding to the natural inclination to reduce speed.

5.4       The Islands will be planted up with low foliage, a change from the initial intention of placing trees in the Islands which was rejected due to the condition of the sewer which runs down the middle of Grampian Street, and the need for the asset to be protected.

5.5       A lighting upgrade will be carried out to meet current standards for pedestrian refuge islands.

 

6.   Option 1 - Install two wide refuge islands (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install two wide Islands which also act as a pedestrian refuge, Line marking that will alter carriageway alignment, and associated 'No Stopping' restrictions on Grampian Street. Please refer to Attachment A.

Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section 2 of this report.

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with this level.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       Local residents are specifically affected by this option due to it addressing several nuisance factors that currently affect them.  The views of all three organisation respondents were generally supportive of the proposal as long as it complies with the construction standard guidelines, which it will.  The five resident responses were all opposed to the proposal and included the following comments:

·   That neither crossing would help me and my guide dog because I’m on the wrong side of Jocelyn Street. Tactile pavers are not safe for me I need pedestrian lights.

o Project team response - A signalised pedestrian crossing falls outside the scope of this project and would not be deemed suitable for this road environment.

·   That adding pedestrian islands to the road will make it more dangerous as cars speed along the street and around the Veitches Road corner onto Grampian Street.

o Project team response - Grampian Street is straight for approximately 450m and this long straight is the major factor in many drivers going too fast. By introducing horizontal deflection the road will no longer give the same impression and drivers will naturally slow down.

·   There are not enough pedestrians to warrant the crossings, install speed humps instead.

o Project team response - It is correct that the demand for pedestrian crossing is not high. The primary purpose of the islands is a speed control measure.  Raised platforms to reduce speeds are not used as a treatment for collector roads.

·   Object to loss of parking. One resident requested more yellow no stopping lines.

o Project team response - Guests visiting some properties may have an additional 40m to walk when parking on the property side of the street. However, it was noted that both property owners mentioning this had space for several cars to park off street. In response to the inquiry requesting more no stopping lines it is not considered prudent to remove any more parking than is absolutely necessary.  A request for a mobility park outside the doctor’s practice has been accommodated.

6.6       The proposed design for the pedestrian islands complies with the CSS (Construction Standard Specifications) guidelines. The primary purpose of the pedestrian islands proposed on Grampian Street is to reduce traffic speed, positioned so that they create a safer road environment. This is achieved by following an approach that can be termed ‘self-explaining roads’.

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2015 - 2025):

4.1.1   Activity: Public Transport Infrastructure

·     Level of Service: 10.4.5 Ensure user satisfaction with the appearance, safety and ease of use of transport interchange(s) and suburban hubs

·     Level of Service: 10.4.10 Improve the accessibility of bus stops via a targeted review and improvement programme (PCat4)

4.2       Five options were considered as part of the CCC Asset Planning – Transport Team investigation into the pedestrian crossing facilities on Main North Road in the vicinity of the Northlands Public Transport Hub. These options were included in the Community Board Report to the ITE Committee dated 05/11/15 (Attachment B).

A brief summary of the options are below:

·     Option 1 –Do nothing and retain existing mid-block crossing.

·     Option 2 (preferred option) – Install a signal-controlled pedestrian crossing on Main North Road between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue.

·     Option 3 – Install ‘green man’ crossing on the southern arm of the Main North Road/Halliwell Avenue intersection.

·     Option 4- Install ‘green man’ crossing on the northern arm of the Main North Road/Mary Street/ Langdons Road intersection.

·     Option 5- Install ‘green man’ crossings to both Main North Road/ Halliwell Avenue and Main North Road/Mary Street/ Langdons intersections.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Improved safety for pedestrians by giving them priority to cross Main North Road and allowing more time for people with limited mobility including the disabled and elderly to cross the road. The installation of tactile and directional pavers will also assist.

·     Located where pedestrians and passengers want to cross Main North Road to reach the Northlands Public Transport Hub and nearby amenities such as Northlands Mall.

·     Supports the Hubs and Spokes Public Transport model, by providing a safe crossing facility for patrons needing to change buses to continue their onward journey.

·     Allows for future Public Transport priority by removing the existing pedestrian refuge island and installing a short section of bus lane on the approach and departure of the crossing which can accommodate future bus priority measures.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Minor delay to bus passengers approaching the Hub to transfer to other buses as the buses would wait for pedestrians to cross the road. This could be alleviated by the introduction of a northbound bus lane which would reduce the overall delay.

·     Some delay to Main North Road traffic of 3-6 seconds (average) depending on where the vehicle is within the traffic. The current journey times on Main North Road are so variable that this impact on other road users and delays incurred are minor.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       The concept of a public transport interchange and accompanying facilities on Main North Road (in the vicinity of Northlands Mall) is based on earlier studies dating back to 2005. It is an integral part of the city’s overall public transport network. This status as an important suburban interchange location and as a matter of Metropolitan Significance is endorsed by the Crown/Council Cost Share Agreement which specifically identified the Northlands PT Hub.

5.2       This project was initiated following the recommendation by the former Environmental Committee on 26 August 2014The recommendation was for Council staff to investigate options to improve the pedestrian crossing facilities on Main North Road in the vicinity of the Northlands Public Transport Hub.

5.3       Council staff are aware that there are no controlled pedestrian crossing facilities linking the stops on either side of Main North Road. The closest signal controlled pedestrian crossing lies to the north of the intersection between Main North Road, Halliwell Avenue and Northlands Mall entrance. This remote location discourages its use by bus passengers and pedestrians and encourages unsafe crossing behaviours in the area around the bus stops. There is an existing uncontrolled crossing point with a median pedestrian refuge, but it was observed that a low number of pedestrians and passengers were using it.

5.4       The Council Asset Planning – Transport Team undertook an investigation and prepared a report outlining the options considered for the pedestrian crossing facilities improvements.   The report was presented to the Shirley/ Papanui Community Board on 19 August 2015 to seek the Community Board’s view on the options, which would then be reported to the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee (ITE).  The Board recommended that the ITE endorse the staff recommendation.  

5.5       On 5 November 2015 the ITE approved the location for the pedestrian crossing improvements subject to community consultation. Refer to the Community Board Report to ITE Committee for details (Attachment B). A signalised mid-block crossing on Main North Road between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue has been proposed as the preferred location for the pedestrian crossing improvements.

5.6       Main North Road between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue is classified as a Minor Arterial in the District Plan.  In the Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan (CTSP), Main North Road is classified as a road with Minor Arterial link with an Urban (Centres) place function.   It is a part of the strategic road network as a Minor Arterial route and is identified as a core public transport route with a Public Transport Hub. It is not part of the freight network.  There is a local cycleway located within the Key Activity Centre and the area is also identified as a Walkable Centre in the CTSP.

5.7       Main North Road is a three lane road with one northbound lane, a flush median, one southbound lane and one southbound part-time bus lane.  The kerb to kerb width on the Main North Road between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue varies from 14 metres (at Proctor Street) to 14.8 metres (at Halliwell Avenue). There are existing footpaths on both sides of Main North Road.  The footpaths are located along the boundary with landscaping located along the kerb on the west side.  There is an existing no parking restriction on both sides of the street between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue.

5.8       Main North Road between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue is a bus route that serves up to seven bus routes.  They are as follows:-

·    B Line (Rangiora/ Belfast – Princess Margaret Hospital)

·    Orbiter

·    No. 28 (Papanui – Lyttelton)

·    No. 95 (Waikuku & Pegasus)

·    No. 107 (Styx Mill – Northlands)

·    No. 108 (Casebrook – Northlands)

·    No. 125 (Redwood- Westlake)

 

5.9       All the above bus routes operate in both directions along Main North Road, between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue.  As part of the Northlands Hub there are bus stops on both sides of Main North Road with longer bus shelters.  There is a part-time bus priority lane for southbound buses which operates from 7am – 9am, Monday to Friday.

5.10    As noted in 5.3, there is an existing uncontrolled pedestrian refuge island on Main North Road linking Northlands Shopping Centre and the bus stops on both sides of the road. The existing road environment creates a safety risk for pedestrians because traffic on the city-bound side is relatively fast moving whereas north-bound traffic is queuing and slower moving.  Pedestrians crossing from the city-bound side have to cross a bus lane and a traffic lane to reach the refuge island. This can make it difficult to find a safe place to cross and people are choosing to cross at several points along Main North Road rather than using the refuge island.

5.11    As part of the Papanui Parallel Major Cycleways project, the bus stops outside Countdown have been removed so there will be an increase in passengers using the Northlands Public Transport Hub and crossing the road at this point.

5.12    There are no overhead services along Main North Road.  It has a posted speed limit of 50kph.  It is a part of the NZTA Over Dimension Vehicle Route (ODV) and a secondary route for CCC Proposed Over Dimension Vehicle Route (ODV). Main North Road has a 7 Day Average Daily Traffic (7DADT) volume of 24,788.  The traffic volume was undertaken in July 2012 and was sourced from the CCC Volume Count database.

5.13    Reported crashes on Main North Road between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue were retrieved from the Crash Analysis System (CAS) for the five year period from 2011 to 2015.  There were seventeen crashes reported during this period.  One was a serious injury, four were minor injury, with the remainder being non-injury crashes. 

5.14    The majority of the crashes were rear-end collisions involving northbound traffic on Main North Road, generally approaching the signalised intersection at Halliwell Avenue.   Only one of the seventeen crashes involved a cyclist where a motorist cut across the cycle lane without giving way to the cyclist. There were no crashes involving buses or pedestrians during the analysis period.

5.15    There are a number of facilities and public amenities in the vicinity of the proposal.  These are as follows:-

·    Northlands Mall along Main North Road between Sawyers Arms Road and Langdons Road

·    Papanui High School

·    Graham Condon Recreation and Sport Centre on Sisson Drive (behind Northlands Mall)

·    CCC Papanui Library at the Langdons Road/ Restell Street/ Sissons Drive intersection

Objectives

5.16    The project objectives are as follows:

1.    Improve road safety and accessibility for bus passengers and pedestrians on Main North Road at Northlands Public Transport Hub by upgrading the pedestrian crossing to a signalised crossing.

2.    Ensure the design takes into account future Public Transport measures.

 

Other Projects

5.17    There are two other capital projects located in the vicinity of the proposal.  The three project teams have been liaising to ensure we give the best overall outcome to the community.  They are as follows:

·    Papanui Parallel Major Cycleway (MCR)

This is currently in construction and includes the installation of a mid-block signalised pedestrian/cycle crossing north of Grassmere Street and the installation of a shared path on Main North Road between Sawyers Arms Road and Grassmere Street. The project has removed the existing bus stops outside Countdown which means more bus users will board at the Northlands Public Transport Hub.

 

·    Main North Road Bus Priority

This proposal is to install bus priority measures to improve bus journey times on Main North Road from Harewood Road to Sawyers Arms Road.  This is in the early scheme design phase.

6.   Option 2 – Signal-controlled pedestrian crossing between Proctor St and Halliwell Avenue (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install a signal-controlled crossing on Main North Road between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue.  The crossing will be located at the same location as the existing pedestrian refuge island.  Refer to Attachment A.  The preferred option has the following features:-

·    A short section of northbound bus lane on the approach side of the crossing which will accommodate one bus.  The bus lane is 4.2 metres wide adjacent to a 3 metre wide traffic lane.

·    A northbound bus lane on the departure side of the crossing will run to the end of the existing bus stops on the west side of Main North Road (Northlands Mall side).

·    The rationale behind the changes to the length to the existing northbound bus lane are:

-     Extending the northbound bus lane will remove potential conflict with the cycle lane by enabling cyclists to ride in the bus lane when there are no buses stopped at the bus stops. This is instead of traveling along the cycle lane between the general traffic lane and the bus stops. 

-     It would allow the ‘Bus Lane End’ sign to be positioned away from the footpath at the end of the bus shelter avoiding a reduction in footpath width.

-     It would not change the operation of the section of the road along the bus stops.  This section of the road is being used by buses like a bus lane as no other road users can use it at the moment.  It would make this section of Main North Road consistent with the bus lane on the east side.

-     It would not adversely affect other northbound road users as they would still enter the final 50 metres of the bus lane to make the left turn into Northlands Mall.

·    The existing southbound bus lane is to be retained.

·    Advanced cycle stop box (ASB) at the limit line for northbound and southbound cyclists.  The ASB is to be located in front of the bus lane.

·    Minor road widening on the west side of Main North Road to provide road space for the proposed lane configuration at the crossing.

·    New kerb alignment on the west side of Main North Road allowing for road widening.

·    The existing landscaping along the new western kerb is to be removed to provide a wider footpath at the pedestrian access to Northlands Mall.  The footpath width will be three metres.

·    The cutdown at the crossing is to be three metres wide to accommodate the pedestrian demand.  There will be tactile pavers including directional pavers at the crossing.

·    Road marking changes including removal of the existing flush median.

·    There will be no change to the existing ‘No-stopping’ restrictions on both sides of Main North Road.

·    There is no loss of parking.

Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is medium consistent with section 2 of this report.

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are inform and consult.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       In 2014 staff were asked to investigate options to improve the pedestrian crossing facilities on Main North Road in the vicinity of the Northlands Public Transport Hub. Please refer to Section 5 for information on Context/Background.

6.6       Following this investigation, a report was made to the Shirley/ Papanui Community Board on 19 August 2015 to seek the Community Board’s view on the options, which would then be reported to the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee (ITE).  The Board recommended that the ITE endorse the staff recommendation subject to community consultation.

6.7       On 5 November 2015 the ITE approved the location for the pedestrian crossing improvements subject to community consultation. Throughout this time meetings were held with Northlands Mall as a key stakeholder.

6.8       Community consultation via the Council Have Your Say process was held between 14 November and 5 December 2016. The leaflet and feedback form was available online and hand delivered and sent to residents, businesses (including Northlands Mall businesses), and wider stakeholders. Staff were available to answer questions during a two hour drop in session on Monday 21 November.

6.9       Key stakeholders were contacted to offer a meeting with the Project Team to discuss the scheme. Papanui High School and Comics Compulsion felt they did not need a face to face meeting, so the scheme was discussed on the phone during the consultation period, before they submitted. Kiwi Property (Northlands Mall) did accept the offer of a meeting.

6.10    Twenty nine of forty one valid submissions received indicated support for the proposal – twenty two in full support, and seven with additional suggestions. Twelve indicated opposition including Northlands Mall and eight are identified as Papanui residents.  One submitter provided comments only in relation to the location of the crossing, and two of those indicating opposition actually expressed support in their comments for the proposed crossing location. One submitter provided comments only in relation to the location of the crossing, and two of those indicating opposition actually expressed support in their comments for the proposed crossing location.

6.11    Full support was received from NZTA, Blind Foundation, NZ Police, CDHB, Comics Compulsion and Papanui High School, and support with additional suggestions from ECan and NZ Heavy Haulage.

6.12    Key support comments were that the crossing will make it safer ‘for the high volume of pedestrians and bus passengers moving across a major arterial route’ (NZ Police). An adjacent business owner is surprised there hasn’t been an accident here already. The proposed crossing will encourage people to cross in the right place, at a safe crossing point that is wide enough. It is convenient, direct and safe for the elderly.  Pedestrians won’t need to try and look past buses to see whether it is safe to walk out to the island. It is needed for the major public transport hub, to link the bus stops safely.

6.13    Papanui High School provided strong support for the crossing at the proposed location because it will significantly improve safety and access for both pedestrians and bus passengers. ‘We have students who travel both towards town and out to Belfast and beyond so they need access to both sides of the road and safety is paramount as this is a very busy road especially at peak times’.

6.14    Key opposition comments were that submitters felt the existing median island is adequate and upgrade not required, that that the expense is not justified considering the level of bus and pedestrian use, there are other signal controlled crossings nearby, and another set of lights would only increase congestion for all. One submitter was sceptical about whether cars and cyclists will stop at the pedestrian signals and another questioned whether these is enough demand for dedicated cycle lanes.

6.15    There were two suggestions for other crossing locations to the south and to the north.   Alternative crossing solutions included two suggestions for a pedestrian underpass and one for an overhead bridge, and one recommending property purchase between Mary and Grassmere Streets to allow enough space for off-road bus stops and traffic.

6.16    General residents’ concerns included a potential increase in existing rubbish and trolley parking, concern that queued traffic will block driveway exits and entries, and that there will be more noise at night for residents at nos 54 – 66. One also noted the risk from U-turns on this busy section of road (Halliwell to Langdons).

6.17    Kiwi Property questioned the CCC consultation process with reference to Northlands Mall and also the wider community. They would like to find an alternative location for the pedestrian crossing to align with their development plans and their proposal of a third vehicle entrance which conflicts with the current crossing location.

6.18    Kiwi Property are one of the key stakeholders for the project and consultation with the mall relating to a pedestrian crossing in this location has been ongoing since June 2015. Previous consultation has been led by the Council Transport Planning Team via planning processes including:  meetings, correspondence, reporting processes. CCC project team and planning representatives met with Kiwi Property’s representatives in September 2016 to explain the consultation plan and the other options considered. Communication and further meetings are ongoing. Please refer to Attachment E for full consultation responses.

6.19    Staff members have met with Kiwi Property three times since the consultation closed, to discuss the crossing proposal in relation to their likely development plans for the Mall, which involves an additional access into the site from Main North Road. The meetings have been constructive and have involved Staff undertaking further investigations to understand if there was an alternative location for the crossing between Proctor Street and Halliwell Avenue that allowed CCC’s project objectives and Kiwi Property’s development objectives to be met.

6.20    Staff met with Kiwi Property on 15/03/17 to talk through their findings which indicated that the preferred option for CCC was still as per the consulted scheme which sited the crossing at the location of the existing median island and crossing. Kiwi Property preferred the crossing to be located further towards Halliwell Avenue opposite the Northlands Hub bus shelters to allow for their site development and additional access (subject to new resource consent approval – declined in Kiwi Property last application). Staff members explained that there is not enough footpath width to facilitate a crossing in front of the Northlands Hub bus shelters. Kiwi raised the matter of providing CCC with some additional land to the rear of the Northlands Hub bus shelters, however it was not discussed how that land would be acquired.

6.21    This option would allow the stops to be moved back onto the additional land, and there would then be enough space on the footpath for both pedestrians using the crossing, and also those walking along Main North Road along the Mall frontage. At the meeting Kiwi Property agreed to draw up plans based on these discussions, but they have not been provided to the agreed timeframe or after follow up from CCC. For the purpose of understanding what was discussed, CCC staff have drafted a drawing in Attachment F showing Kiwi Property concept as it was understood at the meeting. 

6.22    Staff consider that the Kiwi Property option deserved to be reviewed, especially considering the potential benefits for pedestrians, bus passengers and this area of Main North Road, but unfortunately without the plans further investigations are not possible.  Initial investigation have confirmed that there is not enough funding in the project budget for purchase of property from Kiwi Property, and that a resource consent approval would need to be obtained for a reduction in parking for the Mall, and also for the installation of the shelters on the set back land.  Further design work would be required and if were a favoured option would be subject to safety audit and further consultation would be required with stakeholders including ECan which will have cost and time implications.  If these issues could be resolved in a timely manner, it is acknowledged that this option would be worth pursuing further.

6.23    However, due to the lack of response from Kiwi Property, and the significant issues that would have to be resolved and the delays that would be incurred (as per 6.22), staff therefore continue to support the preferred option as consulted on and recommend that this scheme goes forward to detailed design and construction as a key facility for the community of Papanui.

6.24    Staff have considered and responded to the submissions in the consultation table (Attachment E). Project team responses to specific concerns are included in the table. A summary of project team responses to general concerns are as follows:

6.24.1 Project team response to concerns about whether the project is justified:

·   This project is programmed in the Council Long Term Plan.  It forms part of the Crown Cost Share Agreement which was put together post-earthquake to improve public transport at the busiest sites in the city. Main North Road is the city’s second busiest bus route and passenger hub after Riccarton Road.

·   The signal controlled pedestrian crossing is proposed to give pedestrians priority and a safer crossing especially during busy times when it is currently difficult to cross, improve the link between the public transport waiting facilities and the surrounding residential areas, cater for future public transport priority measures to improve journey time reliability for bus passengers. CCC staff pedestrian surveys (March 2015) confirmed this location as the desire line to cross Main North Rd.

6.24.2 Project team response to request that consideration be given to the length for the pedestrian crossing phase, and for a visual count down at the crossing:

·   There will be about 11 seconds for the pedestrian phase at the crossing but there may be an extension camera installed for people who need more time to cross. This will be decided through the detailed design process. The visual countdown pedestrian signal will not be used at the crossing.  It is specifically used in Central City for special pedestrian phases at intersections.

6.24.3 Project team response to assertion that the median strip is a safe and adequate space for pedestrians to wait while crossing the road:

·   Given that there is a high demand for crossing by a mix of pedestrians ranging from school children to the elderly and disabled users, we cannot rely on the use of the median strip and therefore a safe crossing point is needed. This safety requirement will increase with the introduction of bus priority measures on Main North Road as there will be an additional traffic lane for pedestrians to cross. 

6.24.4 Project team response as to whether a controlled crossing is required for pedestrians at Main North Road.

·   In addition to the response provided above to justify the project : the road environment on Main North Road creates a safety risk for pedestrians because the traffic on the city-bound side is relatively fast moving whereas the north-bound traffic is queueing and slower moving making it difficult to find a safe place to cross.

6.24.5 Project team response to concerns about the location of the crossing:

·   We have chosen this location for the crossing as it meets the project objectives for a number of reasons.  The crossing forms a key link between the bus stops in what is considered to be the most appropriate location for safety and serviceability, and provides access to the pedestrian entrance at Northlands Mall.  Pedestrian surveys (March 2015) undertaken by CCC confirmed this site as the premier desire line to cross Main North Road.

6.24.6 Project team response to concerns about possible increased congestion and delays in Main North Road resulting from the installation of additional traffic signals for the crossing:

·   Existing average journey times on Main North Road are variable and any additional delay to journey times as a result of the pedestrian crossing is expected to be minimal.  Externally peer-reviewed traffic modelling shows an average three to six second delay and this will depend on factors such as how often the crossing is called, your place in the traffic queue, time of day and traffic volumes.

·   We appreciate there is existing congestion for vehicles on Main North Road, but we also need to allow for other travel modes. This area of Papanui has been identified as a Walkable Centre in the Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan (CTSP) and we are also assisting people with accessibility needs.

6.24.7 Project team response to concern about the need for a crossing point in the Grassmere Street vicinity:

·   There is also a new signal controlled pedestrian/cycle crossing to be installed on Main North Road just north of Grassmere Street as part of the Papanui Parallel Major Cycleway project. This crossing will meet the needs of people living on Grassmere Street and surrounding Main North Road areas. The island to the south of Grassmere Street will also be retained currently, and its need reviewed as plans are developed for the bus priority scheme.

6.25    There are no changes to the Plan for Consultation which is now presented as the Plan for Council Approval.

6.26    Submitters have been provided with a summary of the consultation and the final plan including any changes made during consultation, and a link to a table of submissions and project team response. They have also been sent details of the meeting so that they can make their views known to the elected members before the decision is made.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.27    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

Financial Implications

6.28    Cost of Implementation – The scheme cost estimate for the project is $458,693 which exceeds the project budget of $392,071 by $66,622. This is based on the scheme design and will be further refined following detailed design.  Should a shortfall remain after tendering, this will need to be addressed through the Transport Capital Program.  

6.29    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - The traffic signals hardware including one new overhead mast arm pole on Main North Road will required to be included in the traffic signal annual maintenance schedule.

6.30    Funding source - The Crown/Council Cost Sharing Agreement provides resources for the Northlands/Papanui PT interchange.

Legal Implications

6.31    Part 1, Clause 5 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions, traffic restrictions and controls by resolution.

6.32    Community Boards have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Boards includes the resolution of parking and stopping restrictions, traffic restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.33    The installation of any signs and/or markings must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations    

6.34    Risk of budget shortfall caused by costs of the works exceeding the allocated budget.  This will result in the scheme not being able to be delivered if not appropriately mitigated. Mitigation measures are to monitor the situation in detailed design and ensure all opportunities to reduce costs are considered. A tender will not be accepted unless the project falls within the approved budget.  Residual risk rating: the rating of the risk is Medium.

6.35    Risk of integration with bus priority measures on Main North Road delays programme. This will result in the project not being delivered on time. Mitigation measures are to closely monitor both projects (The Project Manager is the same for both projects) and ensure that the two projects are coordinated and the impacts are minimised. One of the objectives for this scheme is to take into account future bus priority measures so this can be monitored. Residual risk rating: the rating of the risk is low.

Implementation

6.36    Implementation dependencies  - Requires Community Board recommendation to ITE Committee for approval of installation of signal-controlled pedestrian crossing, kerb alignment changes, traffic controls and installation of short section of bus lane.

6.37    Implementation timeframe – Construction is proposed to commence in September 2017 and last for approximately eight weeks.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.38    The advantages of the preferred option include:

·     Improved safety for pedestrians by giving them priority to cross Main North Road making it safer for people to cross the road. This includes people with limited mobility including the disabled and elderly. The installation of tactile and directional pavers will also assist.

·     Located where pedestrians and passengers want to cross Main North Road to reach the Northlands Public Transport Hub and nearby amenities such as Northlands Mall.

·     Supports the Hubs and Spokes Public Transport model, by providing a safe crossing facility for patrons needing to change buses to continue their onward journey.

·     Allows for future Public Transport priority by removing the existing pedestrian refuge island and installing a short section of bus lane on the approach and departure of the crossing which can accommodate future bus priority measures.

6.39    The disadvantages of the preferred option include:

·     Minor delay to bus passengers approaching the Hub to transfer to other buses as the buses would wait for pedestrians to cross the road. This could be alleviated by the introduction of a northbound bus lane which would reduce the overall delay.

·     Some delay to Main North Road traffic of 3-6 seconds (average) depending on where the vehicle is within the traffic. The current congestion on Main North Road means that the impact on other road users and delays incurred are minor.
