The Chairperson thanked Rachel for her deputation.

 

 

5.2       Philip Haythornthwaite – New Brighton Road (Burwood Park) Proposed Bus Stop Relocation

             Mr Haythornthwaite, in his capacity as President of the Disabled Persons Assembly, spoke to the Board regarding the Bus Stop Relocation report at Item 8. 

Mr Haythornthwaite believed that the placement of the proposed relocated bus stop opposite Cresswell Avenue would put waiting passengers in potential danger from antisocial drivers exiting Cresswell Avenue and losing control.  To mitigate this potential danger, his proposal was to move the relocated stop westward.

Moving the bus stop eastwards towards Kingsford Street would create issues because of kerb cut-downs. 

The Chairperson thanked Philip for his deputation.

This matter was further debated when the report was received at item 7.

There was no presentation of petitions.

8.   New Brighton Road (Burwood Park) Proposed Bus Stop Relocation

 

Board Comment

The Board discussed the issues raised by the deputation.  Staff advised that moving the bus stop to the other side of Kingsford Street would impede sight lines for motorists.  Moving the bus stop west, as proposed by Mr Haythornthwaite, would require taking out one or two extra parking spaces. 

It was noted the Cresswell Avenue has become very busy and this had been taken into consideration by staff, noting that accidents resulting from anti-social drivers occur throughout the city and that this area is not expected to be worse. 

Staff clarified that there is no bus shelter at this bus stop, as it is an outbound stop, and only very few passengers are expected to be waiting there.
