1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to request the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to recommend to the Council that Stages 3 and 4 of the Riccarton Road Bus Priority project (Harakeke Street to Matipo Street) and the Three Waters Upgrade project to replace the underground infrastructure continue as combined projects through to the end of construction. This integrated approach will limit the disruption to businesses and users of Riccarton Road as there will be only one combined construction contract creating construction and programme efficiencies.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is being provided to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board (the Board) following a presentation given jointly to the Board and the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee (ITE) on 3 November 2017 on the delivery management of this section of works.

2.   Significance

2.1       The decisions in this report are of high significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by the level of community interest, benefits for the bus passengers given the number per day, and environmental benefits of mode shift from single occupant vehicles to public transport. There is also a high amount of reputational risk to the Council as this is one of the busiest roads and transport corridors in the city.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation for the approved bus priority measures was very significant and extensive and although not part of this report does indicate that there will need to be extensive communication with the affected businesses and users of Riccarton Road, before and during the construction works. This reflects the significance assessment as shown in 2.1.1.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board:

1.         Recommend to the Council that the combined project approach for the Bus Priority scheme and the Underground Pipe Upgrade on Riccarton Road continues from Harakeke Street to Matipo Street to the end of construction prescribing either Option 5 or 6, as covered in the staff report.

 

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: 10.4.3 Provide journey reliability on high frequency core services

4.1.2   Activity: Wastewater Collection

·    Level of Service: 11.0.1 Provide Wastewater Collection in a safe, convenient and efficient manner.

4.1.3   Activity: Water Supply

·    Level of Service: 12.0.1 Supply continuous potable water to all customers.

4.2       The bus priority measures between Deans Avenue and Matipo Street were approved on 6 August 2015 by the ITE Committee. The combination of the Bus Priority and Three Waters projects to Harakeke Street was approved in December 2015 by the ITE Committee. Stage 1 (Deans Avenue intersection) has been completed with Stage 2 (Deans Avenue-Harakeke Street) currently under construction and due for completion in 2018.

4.3       Between Harakeke Street and Matipo Street, in addition to the bus priority measures, there is other horizontal infrastructure that requires renewal. It is practical to continue to upgrade both the underground infrastructure and the road at the same time. It is intended to carry out these works commencing in mid-2018.

4.4       The combined Transport and Three Waters Project Team attended a seminar with the Community Board in May 2017, where this was presented. The feedback received was that the indicative programme based on current construction timeframes was too long at the estimated 26 months. Following that seminar, the team revisited the construction delivery option and explored whether there were further options to accelerate the programme and complete the works in a shorter timeframe.

4.5       This report considers the following nine construction delivery options which have been assessed through a Multi Criteria Analysis and each option scored based on the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) Multi Criteria Analysis model and guidelines. The full Multi Criteria Analysis is appended to this report (refer Attachment A) along with the criteria breakdown (refer Attachment B).  The Multi Criteria Analysis assesses each delivery option under the following sub-headings: 

·    Investment

§ Funding for the scheme

§ Meeting project and therefore NZTA funding objectives (where applicable)

·    Implement-ability

§ Feasibility in terms of design, constructability, safety and consents

§ Affordability - financial, operationally and maintenance

§ Public and stakeholders - Disruption to local businesses, Riccarton Road users, wider community and business area, construction period/duration of works, public services (water and wastewater supply)

·    Assessment of Effects

§ Safety - for construction workers, safety of all road users

§ Community - residential amenity, business amenity, visual amenity, access to community facilities

§ System integration - traffic management and functionality of wider network

§ Natural environment - stormwater management

 

 

 

4.6       The below table summarises the results from the Multi Criteria Analysis and their overall ranking. A sensitivity test was carried out on the analysis and confirmed the results.

 

Option #

Name

Description

Multi Criteria Analysis Ranking

1

Do Minimum

Abandon project and leave Riccarton Road as it is currently.

2

Defer all works

Defer all works to a future financial year

7

3

Defer partial works

Defer bus priority works but complete underground works

9

4

Split project into two stages of construction

Complete project from Harakeke Street to Clarence Street and then defer both projects Clarence Street to Matipo Street to a future year

8

5

Staged construction along Riccarton Road with longer worksite/multiple crews (preferred option)

Staged construction as being done now but longer worksites so higher productivity.

 

1

6

Staged construction along Riccarton Road with shorter worksite (preferred option)

Staged construction as being done now but shorter worksites and completing full sections including reseal as the contractor moves up Riccarton Road.

2

7

Close Riccarton Road for duration of works

Full road closure with all traffic diverted.

5

8

Keep Riccarton Road open during the day and close at night

Daytime works keep Riccarton Road open and then full road closure at night (11pm – 6am) and full traffic diversion.

3

9

Make Riccarton Road public transport and pedestrians only

Divert all general traffic to other routes all the time.

4

 

4.7       There are two potential variations identified that can be added to any of the above options to increase productivity. They have also been assessed under the Multi Criteria Analysis as options as they have advantages and disadvantages of their own.

·     Variation 1 - Work 24 hours i.e. day and night works for various activities.

·     Variation 2 - Work longer hours- extended working hours to make longer working days.

4.8       From the results of the Multi Criteria Analysis, there were two viable options that scored positively (Options 5 and 6) and the option summary for both options are below.

4.9       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages of Option 5 - Staged construction along Riccarton Road with longer worksite and/ or multiple crews 

4.9.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     More space for multiple crews, equipment and deliveries

·     Higher productivity due to multiple crews, hence reduced construction timeframes

4.9.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Visual amenity impact is greater for local community

·     Longer sections of Riccarton Road impacted by construction works at any one time

·     Potential increased cost due to multiple crews

4.10    Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages of Option 6 - Staged construction along Riccarton Road with shorter worksites that are completed including the final road surface as the project progresses along Riccarton Road. 

4.10.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Sections of the works will be fully completed as construction progresses (i.e. Three Waters and Bus Priority components), community and users can see the final product as construction completes

·     Smaller sections of Riccarton Road affected at any one time

·     Sense of less disruption to road users and businesses

4.10.2    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     More complexities to constructing within a smaller site

·     Although some programme gains due to longer working hours, the construction timeframes will not be reduced as much as having a longer worksite.

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       Bus Priority scheme

Riccarton Road is Christchurch’s second busiest bus corridor after the Central City with over 800 bus journeys per day and nearly 3,000 passengers boarding there on an average weekday (data supplied by Environment Canterbury (ECan)). It forms a key part of the ECan hubs and spokes model and the Riccarton bus lounges provide critical transfer points for passengers transferring from core to local services.  Key features of the bus priority scheme include:

·    Bus lanes and priority measures along Riccarton Road from Harakeke Street to Matipo Street to improve bus reliability and journey times.

·    Street enhancements and a tree lined median along the centre of the road through Central Riccarton which provides safety benefits in reducing traffic speed, as well as providing a crossing point for pedestrians so they can cross in two halves.

·    Full road reconstruction from Harakeke Street to Matipo Street to repair the failing pavement with some kerb and channel replacement where needed. Street lighting upgrade included as part of the scheme.

·    Cycle improvements made throughout the whole scheme with the provision of cycle lanes or when space is restricted, cyclists are able to use the bus lanes.

5.2       Water Supply

The water supply assets along this section of Riccarton Road are predominately constructed of asbestos cement (AC) and are past the end of their asset life expectancy. The condition of the AC pipes is rated as poor/very poor. Failures are occurring and future failures are expected. The new water supply design uses modern materials and increases the pipe size over the existing to allow for future growth and demand in the Riccarton area. All water supply assets are programmed for renewal.

5.3       Wastewater

The Wastewater assets along this section of Riccarton Road were originally installed in 1925. They are now very close to the end of their 100 year design life. The wastewater also fared badly during the Canterbury earthquakes, with the SCIRT rebuild programme deferring hundreds of defects on this section of the wastewater alone. The new wastewater design uses modern pipe materials and significantly increases the pipe size over the existing, to deal with current capacity issues within the network, and to allow for future growth. All wastewater assets are programmed for renewal, including laterals to the boundaries of private properties.

5.4       Programming 

5.4.1   The Public Transport component of this combined project did initially determine early on that the Three Waters infrastructure under the road would need replacement, however no budget was available at the time so the bus priority project continued. More recently, budget has been prioritised to enable the Wastewater and Water supply replacement to occur. Since this was identified, co-ordination with the Three Waters projects was re-addressed and given the estimated remaining life of the Three Waters infrastructure, it was considered desirable to do the projects together to minimise disruption to the community and businesses.

5.4.2   When the Project Team presented to the Board in May 2017, regarding combining projects for Stages 3 and 4, a timeline was proposed based on current construction timeframes. The feedback at that meeting was that it was too long for the community and the impact would be considerable. The action of the Project Team was to look at ways to reduce the timeframe and limit disruption to the Riccarton businesses which has formed the basis of this report. The Project Team appreciate that this next section of work is different to the earlier stages of the project both technically and with reference to the concentration of surrounding stakeholders and businesses.

5.4.3   Following the seminar, the Project Team was widened to include Christchurch Transport Operations Centre (CTOC), Unit and Team Managers from Transport and Three Waters, Construction and Supervision team members, ECan and Christchurch City Council Operations to assess a number of delivery options to find the preferred option that was best for the Council and will cause the least disruption to the local area, businesses and Riccarton Road users.

5.4.4   The upgrade of the public car park to the north of Riccarton Road off Rimu Street to time-restricted spaces has been included as part of the bus priority scheme and is intended to be completed first to provide shopper parking whilst works on Riccarton Road are carried out.

5.5       Indicative costs

·     Underground pipe renewal - $10m

·     Bus Priority scheme - $3.9m

·     Total Scheme Cost - $13.9m

 

5.6       Traffic Management

Many options have been looked at through the Multi Criteria Analysis in regards to the potential traffic management required to complete the works. This has included:

·     Full closure of sections of Riccarton Road

·     One way traffic through sections of Riccarton Road, with tidal arrangements

·     Public transport and pedestrian access only to Riccarton Road

·     Maintain two lanes of traffic (one in either direction)

·     Potential night time closure options

CTOC has advised that there are no viable detour routes that can cope with the amount of traffic that travels down Riccarton Road. Detours would also have a significant impact on the 800 buses that travel down Riccarton Road per day and the use of the recently opened bus lounges.

CTOC has therefore determined that throughout the construction period, two lanes of traffic must be maintained (one in either direction) with the potential to do road closures at night, where required.

6.   Summary of other options not proposed as viable

6.1       As shown in the Multi Criteria Analysis, eleven delivery options were considered in total with Options 5 and 6 scoring the most positively as the two feasible options that could achieve project objectives whilst limiting disruption and reducing timeframes.

6.2       Options 1 to 4 which looked at abandoning the project, deferring all or sections of it, scored negatively due to the amount of risk associated with that option. The main risk identified was that the underground pipes are at the end of their life and the risk of a pipe burst is significantly increased if the project is abandoned or deferred. These options also hold significant reputational risk for the Council due to consulting on the bus priority scheme in May 2015 and then not completing the approved scheme. The stages already constructed to Harakeke Street would not see the full bus journey benefits at peak times due to limited completion of the bus lanes.

6.3       Options 7 to 9 which focused on various road closure options, scored negatively due to the amount of risk associated with those options. The main issue with all these options was the severe impact on the wider transport network as a result of the diversion. Other routes simply could not cope with the amount of diverted traffic. It also removed drive-by traffic from the local businesses on Riccarton Road which could impact customers choosing those businesses to visit. There were some opportunities seen in road closures overnight which will be explored with contractors.

6.4       Variation 1 (Work 24 hours) and Variation 2 (Work longer hours) were also assessed as part of the Multi Criteria Analysis. There are significant health and safety implications of working 24 hours to both workers and residents as well as a reduction in productivity and resourcing issues for a prolonged programme duration. It was concluded that longer working hours was the preferable approach to balance time benefits and productivity but overnight working could be employed where necessary or if there was a task that would benefit from this extended working time. Any night work would still be subject to consenting requirements.

6.5       During the Multi Criteria Analysis process, the project team invited drainage and roading contractors into the Council to have a high level conversation about the project and possible ways of reducing timeframes whilst limiting disruption to local businesses and the wider network. This also provided a sensitivity test to the results of the Multi Criteria Analysis.

6.6       Following eight meetings with different contractors, they all confirmed that the more worksite space they had to work within, the quicker the work could be completed and timeframes reduced. That said, working within the confines of the traffic management as set by CTOC, they saw that either Option 5 or 6 were the most viable to enable one lane of traffic in either direction which confirmed the findings from the Multi Criteria Analysis.

7.   Option 5 – Staged construction - longer worksite

Option Description

7.1       Staged construction along Riccarton Road with a longer worksite and/or multiple crews along Riccarton Road utilising longer hours and some 24 hour working, where needed.

7.2       As part of the tender process contractors will be requested to focus on minimising disruption and a reduction in total construction periods. The use of the Variations in section 4.7 will be options to consider. The tender evaluation will be weighted to ensure there are key assessment criteria.

Significance

7.3       The level of significance of this option is high consistent with section 2 of this report.

7.4       Communications and engagement will be carried out appropriately in line with the Communications and Engagement framework (refer Attachment C).

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.5       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

7.6       This is not applicable as the delivery management of the scheme is not to be consulted on.

7.7       The Communications and Engagement framework (refer Attachment C) sets out how the community will be informed of the work required as part of the construction. This will be led by the Council and day-to-day communications managed by the contractor.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.9       Cost of Implementation – the Three Waters and Transport elements are expected to be able to be delivered within the $13.9 million budget as will be proposed in the draft Long Term Plan 2018-2028 (LTP). This option is not expected to have a significant effect on the cost of the project, however if combined with night works, a reasonable increase in costs is expected.

7.10    Maintenance/Ongoing Costs – these are expected to be reduced, given the Transport, Wastewater and Water Supply assets are being replaced with new.

7.11    Funding source – funding is available in the following CPMS projects:

·    CPMS 41283 – WW Riccarton Road – Harakeke to Matipo

·    CPMS 41284 – WS Riccarton Road – Harakeke to Matipo

·    CPMS 15315 – Riccarton Interchange and Bus Priority

Legal Implications

7.12    Under Section 10 of the Christchurch City Council Water Supply, Wastewater and Stormwater Bylaw 2014 pursuant to Sections 145 and 146 of the Local Government Act 2002 and Section 64 of the Health Act 1956, the Council is required to maintain Continuity of Supply of water in accordance with the level of service contained in the Long Term Plan. 

Risks and Mitigations

7.13    There is a reputational risk to the Council caused by the visual amenity impact of the longer worksite.  This may result in negative feedback from the public as larger sections of Riccarton Road are included as part of the worksite.

7.14    Residual risk rating: The residual rating of the risk after the below treatment(s) is implemented, will be Medium.

7.15    Planned treatment measures would be mitigation via the Communications and Engagement Framework as set out in Attachment C. 

Implementation

7.16    Implementation dependencies - Resource consent applications

7.17    Implementation timeframe – Construction start planned mid 2018

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.18    The advantages of this option include:

·     More space for multiple crews, equipment and deliveries

·     Higher productivity due to multiple crews, hence reduced construction timeframes

7.19    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Visual amenity impact is greater for local community

·     Longer or multiple sections of Riccarton Road impacted by construction works at any one time so disruption could be spread out

·     Increased cost due to multiple crews and longer hours.

8.   Option 6 – Staged construction - Shorter worksites

Option Description

8.1       Staged construction along Riccarton Road with shorter worksites that are completed including the final road surface as the project progresses along Riccarton Road.

8.2       As part of the tender process contractors will be requested to focus on minimising disruption and a reduction in total construction periods. The use of the Variations in section 4.7 will be options to consider. The tender evaluation will be weighted to ensure there are key assessment criteria.

Significance

8.3       The level of significance of this option is high consistent with section 2 of this report.

8.4       Communications and engagement will be carried out appropriately in line with the Communications and Engagement framework (refer Attachment C).

Impact on Mana Whenua

8.5       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

8.6       This is not applicable as the delivery management of the scheme is not to be consulted on.

8.7       The Communications and Engagement framework (Attachment C) sets out how the community will be informed of the work required as part of the construction. This will be led by the Council and day-to-day communications, managed by the contractor.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

8.9       Cost of Implementation - the Three Waters and Transport elements are expected to be able to be delivered within the $13.9 million budget as will be proposed in the draft LTP. This option is not expected to have a significant affect on the cost of the project, however if combined with night works, a reasonable increase in costs is expected.

8.10    Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - these are expected to be reduced, given the Transport, Wastewater and Water Supply assets are being replaced with new.

8.11    Funding source - funding is available in the following CPMS projects:

·    CPMS 41283 – WW Riccarton Road – Harakeke to Matipo

·    CPMS 41284 – WS Riccarton Road – Harakeke to Matipo

·    CPMS 15315 – Riccarton Interchange and Bus Priority

Legal Implications

8.12    Under Section 10 of the Christchurch City Council Water Supply, Wastewater and Stormwater Bylaw 2014 pursuant to Sections 145 and 146 of the Local Government Act 2002 and Section 64 of the Health Act 1956, the Council is required to maintain Continuity of Supply of water in accordance with the level of service contained in the Long Term Plan.

Risks and Mitigations

8.13    There is a risk to the project caused by constructing the final road surface immediately after all the trenching work has been completed.  This may result in the final road surface cracking/failing /ending up being less than desirable, due to unplanned settlement of the trench materials.

8.14    Residual risk rating: The residual rating of the risk after the below treatment(s) is implemented, will be Medium.

8.15    Planned treatment(s) include compacting backfill to required levels, as work progresses.

8.16    There is a risk to the project generally around completing the work in short sections due to added complexities around constructing the new infrastructure whilst keeping the old infrastructure running in order to maintain levels of service and supply. With a smaller work site, there is a higher chance that customers could be disconnected for a longer period of time and therefore they receive a lower level of service.

8.17    Residual risk rating: The residual rating of the risk after the below treatment(s) is implemented will be Low.

8.18    Planned treatment(s) include planning each section appropriately and working with customers to better identify appropriate changeover times.

Implementation

8.19    Implementation dependencies - Resource consent applications 

8.20    Implementation timeframe – Construction start planned in mid 2018

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

8.21    The advantages of this option include:

·     Sections of the works will be fully completed as construction progresses, community and users can see the final product as construction completes

·     Smaller sections of Riccarton Road affected by the works at any one time, so disruption limited to a smaller area.

8.22    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     More complexities to constructing within a smaller site

·     Although some programme gains due to longer working hours, the construction timeframes will not be reduced as much as having a longer worksite with Option 5.

3.   Community Board Activities and Forward Planning

3.1       Memos/Information/Advice to the Board

3.1.1   Provision of strategic, technical and procedural advice to the Board

The Board continues to receive strategic, technical and procedural advice mainly through an ongoing programme of Board seminars and/or workshops generally held at the conclusion of the Board’s twice monthly ordinary meetings.

3.1.2   Lodestar Avenue

      A staff memorandum is provided (refer Attachment A) responding back to the Board on the correspondence received from Mr R J Prescott at its 14 November 2017 meeting regarding speed and traffic noise on Lodestar Avenue.

3.2       Board area Consultations/Engagement/Submission opportunities

3.2.1   Consultation on the proposed partial changes in reserve classification and to the Management Plan for Denton Park commenced on 20 January 2018 and concludes on 26 March 2018.

It is expected that the hearing of submissions received on the proposals will be undertaken by a Council Hearings Panel in April 2018 and a recommendation thereafter will come to the Community Board for a decision.

3.3       Annual Plan and Long Term Plan matters

3.3.1   The timeline on the next steps for the Council’s Draft Long Term Plan 2018-28 (LTP) are:

·    21 February 2018 Council Meeting - adoption of Draft LTP

·    9 March to 13 April 2018 - community engagement/consultation undertaken

·    April/June 2018 - analysis/hearings of submissions

·    28 June 2018 - Council Meeting - adoption of Long Term Plan 2018 -2028

The Board’s Submission Committee will be convened during March 2018 to work on the preparation of the Board’s draft submission.

3.4       Board Reporting

3.4.1   Board members are invited through the issued weekly meetings schedule, to forward any items they would like highlighted for inclusion in the Board’s Newsletter, Newsline and the Report to the Council.

4.   Community Board Plan – Update against Outcomes

4.1       The next quarterly update will be included in the Area Report to the Board’s meeting on 27 March 2018. 

5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

5.1       Strengthening Community Fund Projects

5.1.1   Oak Development Trust's Men 2 Cook programme has been placed on hold as the programme facilitator has relocated back to Australia.  The Trust is presently seeking another chef/cook to facilitate the running of the 'for men, by men' programme.

5.1.2   The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Pride Garden Awards 2018 hosted by the Board, is being held on Monday 12 March 2018 at 4.30pm at the Hornby Working Men's Club.

5.2       Other partnerships with the community and organisations

5.2.1   Proposed Riccarton Business Association. Since the commencement of the road works to improve the infrastructure on Riccarton Road, a number of businesses have publically expressed concerns about the adverse effects these works are having on their trading. With the project set to continue for the foreseeable future, it has been suggested that a business association be established. The purpose of doing this is to connect the Riccarton Road businesses with each other and provide a forum for development and support, in addition to acting as a conduit between individual businesses and the Council. The advantages of establishing an association include more direct representation of smaller businesses, providing support to ESOL business owners/operators, advocacy and lobbying on issues relevant to businesses, and a more effective and efficient ‘one-stop-shop’ for resources, experience, advice and knowledge. This would be a community-led initiative with support available from the Council.

5.2.1   The Chairpersons and Deputy Chairpersons of the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton and the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Boards attended a meeting with the University of Canterbury's Vice-Chancellor to discuss parking related issues in the areas around the university.

Attendees acknowledged the pressures on parking in and around the university areas and are keen to work together, where appropriate.

 

5.3       Local Infrastructure projects underway

5.3.1   Picton Reserve – Installation of the additional play equipment is nearing completion at the Picton Reserve.

6.   Significant Community Issues, Events and Projects in the Board Area

6.1       Heritage in Halswell

6.1.1   The small local heritage group remains active and is now contributing to the monthly Halswell Newsletter as well as having display boards available to view in the former Singleman’s Quarters building at the Halswell Quarry Park.    

6.2       City Harvest

6.2.1   City Harvest is the largest food rescue organisation in Christchurch.  It was established in 2016 by John and Janice Milligan in Manchester Street.  It has recently moved location to 29 Kilmarnock Street, in the rear of the former Kilmarnock Enterprises building. 

The organisation is actively diverting 16 to 17 tonnes of food from the waste stream and distributing the food to 34 local organisations.  They have two vans collecting from most New World and Countdown supermarkets in Christchurch and a Pak 'n' Save.  They have a large pool of volunteers who assist with the sorting and redistribution of the food. 

6.3       Westside Walkers

6.3.1   A new walking group, Westside Walkers has been established in Hornby. The group meet at the Hornby Community Centre each Saturday at 10am for a short walk in the area.

The activity is aimed at all ages, but it is expected that it will predominantly be older adults who wish to maintain a good level of fitness, and women who are interested in getting back to fitness after pregnancy.

The walks are free to attend and open to all, with an optional strengthening and toning circuit class afterwards for a fee of $5. 

6.4       Upcoming Local Events

7.2       Mowing and spraying programme

7.2.1   December 2017 and January 2018 were very busy months for Delta, the Council’s parks maintenance contractor, as they worked towards completing scheduled and unscheduled work. Higher than usual rainfall levels together with higher than usual temperatures resulted in a flush of grass growth and an increase of perennial weed growth. The Parks Unit responded in a limited way to customer requests for extra mowing and woody weed control due to the risk of fire. Some areas sit outside of the contract and so maintenance incurs extra costs.
