4.   Key Points

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

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 No Stopping Restrictions (preferred option).

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Reduces the risk of a crash by improving access and sightlines.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes car parking spaces.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       All four street locations (refer Attachments A to D) are either narrow roads or have road narrowing which cannot accommodate parking on both sides of the particular sections of road without severely affecting property access, or vehicles through movements on the street. In some instances, the design never intended for parking but no stopping restrictions were never installed because at the time, there was not a demand for kerbside parking in the streets.

5.2       The Council’s traffic operations staff have been contacted by individual residents from all of the locations asking that no stopping restrictions be installed to rectify their present situations by preventing parking to improve access along the street and to their properties.

5.3       Oakford Close (Attachment A) is a cul-de-sac with a road width that varies from 6 metres at the entrance and 7 metres at the bend to 8.5 metres. The usable carriageway would be reduced to one lane if vehicles are parked on both sides of the street. The resident at number 7 has requested that a no stopping restriction be installed on the bend on the northern side of the road to improve access to the properties. He has stated that the ambulance or fire engine will not be able to enter when vehicles are parked on both sides of the bend.

5.4       Huia Street (Attachment B) is a cul-de-sac with a road width of 6 metres, with a deep dish channel on both sides of road. There is an existing no stopping restriction on the south side of Huia Street. The resident at number 10 has requested that a no stopping restriction be installed in between driveways as vehicles often block off access to the residents driveways. On measurement, there is only approximately 4 metres length in between driveways within the cul-de-sac, which is insufficient for vehicles to park there. 

5.5       Arthur Street (Attachment C)/Middleton Road is a cross intersection with a Stop Control on the Arthur Street approaches. The resident at number 1/63 has concerns that vehicles often park too close to the intersection of Middleton Road and Arthur Street and this causes a visibility issue when turning. Arthur Street has a road width of 7.8 metres. Both sides of Arthur Street are usually parked with vehicles from parents dropping off and picking up school children, which effectively reduces the road to one lane movement. The street currently has No Stopping restrictions that operate between 8am to 9am and 2.30pm to 3.30pm Monday to Friday. It is proposed that these restrictions be extended on the south side of Arthur Street up to Middleton Road.

5.6       Puriri Street/Totara Street intersection (Attachment D) Concerns have been raised by the resident at number 1/99B Totara Street regarding the safety and operation of this intersection. The intersection is a Stop controlled cross-road, with priority given to Puriri Street. From both stop lines on Totara Street, visibility can be limited by parked vehicles on Puriri Street. The location is heavily parked, especially by university students. When vehicles park near the intersection, the sight lines for oncoming traffic are obstructed. This encourages drivers to nose out into the intersection to obtain better visibility. Both the eastern and western sides of Totara Street are narrowed to seven metres, such that there is little space for motorists to take any evasive action to avoid vehicles pulling out unexpectedly.

6.   Option 1 - Install No Stopping Restriction (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Installing No Stopping Restrictions at the locations indicated in this report will prevent parking on sections of roadway and provide carriageway space for the safe movement of residential traffic, traffic servicing the residential areas and will improve access to residential properties.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to 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

6.4       Affected property owners and residents were advised of the recommended option by letter. Only one response was received from a resident in Huia Street, who opposed the proposal. The resident was frustrated at a number of roads being closed within the area due to the ongoing wastewater works.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.6       Cost of Implementation – approximately $1,000.

6.7       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Covered under the area maintenance contract and effect will be minimal to the overall asset.

6.8       Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

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

6.10    The Community Boards have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations set out in the Register of Delegations.  The list of delegations for the Community Boards includes the resolution of no stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.
