8.        Christchurch Northern Corridor (Northern Arterial Extension and Cranford Street Upgrade) - proposed road layout options

Reference:

18/507370

Presenter(s):

Richard Osborne, Head of Transport

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Papanui-Innes Community Board to recommend to Council the final scheme design for the Northern Arterial Extension (NAE) and Cranford Street Upgrade (CSU) and approve that the NAE and CSU, referred to as the Christchurch Northern Corridor (CNC) proceed to detailed design and construction.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated.

2.   Significance

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

2.2       The level of significance was determined by the significance matrix including the number of people affected and the level of community interest in the Christchurch Northern Corridor (CNC) Project.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

1.         That the Papanui-Innes Community Board recommends to Council that

a.         Approve the final scheme for the Northern Arterial Extension between Queen Elizabeth II Drive and Cranford Street Upgrade as shown in Plan 1, Appendix A.

b.         Approve the final scheme preferred option for the section of Cranford Street Upgrade between the Northern Arterial Extension and McFaddens Road as shown in Plan 2, Appendix A.

c.         Confirm the final scheme for the layout of the Cranford Street and Innes Road intersection as shown in Plan 3, Appendix A;

d.         Approve the relocation of bus stops as shown in Plan 4, Appendix A; and

e.         Recommend that the detailed traffic resolutions required for the implementation of the Northern Arterial Extension and Cranford Street Upgrade are brought back to the Community Board for approval at the end of the detailed design.

 

 

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: 10.0.1 Provide journey reliability on specific strategic routes

4.2       This report discusses two options for the final scheme design for Cranford Street between McFaddens Road and the NAE. The report also seeks recommendations for:

·     The final scheme for the NAE;

·     The final scheme for the Cranford Street and Innes Road intersection; and

·     The rationalisation and reposition of bus stops on Cranford Street between Innes Road and the NAE.

4.3       The following two options have been considered for the northern end of Cranford Street Upgrade between McFaddens Road and Northern Arterial Extension:

·     Option 1 – Northern Arterial Extension and Cranford Street Upgrade with on street parking provision (preferred option); and

·     Option 2 – Northern Arterial Extension and Cranford Street Upgrade without on street parking provision.

4.4       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages Option 1 (Preferred Option)

4.4.1   The advantages of Option 1 include:

·     Provision of some on street parking provides consistency with the initial specimen design used during the Designation Hearing and the amended design plan attached to the Consent Order.

·     This option provides a balanced solution that addresses safety concerns and consent requirement and also meets the needs of local businesses and residents by retaining some on street parking.

·     The provision of a safe pedestrian crossing option at the Cranford Street/McFaddens Road intersection that satisfies both the Hearing Decision requirements and safety audit concerns.

·     Provision of two suitable and safe bus stop locations on each side of Cranford Street.

4.4.2   The disadvantages of Option 1 include:

·     The provision of on-street parking on a multi-lane arterial corridor with commercial access points generally increases the safety risk for all users. This risk has been mitigated through design and the introduction of features such as buffer zones, speed humps and parking setback distances from access points.

·     Cyclists using this section of Cranford Street will be sharing the space with pedestrians on a wider shared path. Given the close proximity of the Papanui Parallel cycleway (which is a physically separated, high quality route designed for this purpose), it is expected that the majority of cyclists will use the Papanui Parallel instead of Cranford Street.

·     Potential additional cost to Council.

 

5.   Context/Background

Planning Process

5.1       In October 2013, the Council and the NZTA jointly lodged an Application for a Notice of Requirement for a designation for the NAE and the CSU. A designation is a notation in the District Plan that authorises public works that would otherwise have required resource consent.

5.2       The NAE and CSU is part of the Christchurch Northern Corridor (CNC) roading project for a new section of State Highway 74 running south of the Waimakariri River to Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Drive and connecting onto Cranford Street.  The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) is responsible for the road from the Waimakariri River to just south of QEII Drive. The Council’s section of this road network includes a new link from the NZTA boundary to Cranford Street (known as the NAE) and the widening (four-laning) of Cranford Street down to the Innes Road intersection (known as the CSU).

5.3       The decision of the Independent Hearing Commissioners dated 22 July 2015 granted the designation with conditions (Hearing Decision).  Two appeals were lodged to the Environment Court by submitters on parts of the Hearing Decision.  One appeal related to the road layout of Cranford Street from McFaddens Road to the NAE, the other concerned property and acquisition matters and is irrelevant to this report.

5.4       The appeal on the road layout was resolved by consent following mediation and a Consent Order dated 10 February 2016 was sealed by the Environment Court.  The agreement reached in the Consent Order stipulates certain design requirements for property access and turning movements for Cranford Street between McFaddens Road and the NAE. A copy of the Consent Order is attached as Appendix B.  The Consent Order also contains the designation conditions and amended specimen design agreed on, in its Appendices.

5.5       The area and size of the designation for roading purposes for the NAE and CSU has been determined by the Hearing Decision and its conditions.  Council is bound by the designation boundaries and this has largely pre-determined the width of the carriageway in each section of the road project.

5.6       During the Designation Hearing an initial specimen design was used to define the road layout.  The designation conditions states the final design for the NAE and CSU must be in general accordance with the conditions and the approved designation documentation. 

5.7       On 25 February 2016 the Council, after receiving a report containing options and recommendations from Council staff, chose a cross-section design for the section of Cranford Street between McFaddens Road and Innes Road.

5.8       The cross section adopted by Council for Cranford Street between Innes Road and McFaddens Road did not include the approval of the scheme design for the Cranford Street / Innes Road Intersection.  The intersection layout was amended during the hearing process to better provide for turning lanes and address concerns of submitters.

5.9       Condition 27 of the Hearing Decision states: Prior to completion of the Cranford Street/Innes Road intersection upgrade, and unless the Christchurch City Council purchases the property at 209A Innes Road, provisions shall be made to ensure that the property owners/s have access to at least two off-street parking spaces and sufficient manoeuvring space to enable vehicles to exit the property in a forward direction.

5.10    Since the Hearing Decision was issued, Council has purchased the property at 209A Innes Road to allow a left turning bay of adequate length.

5.11    The delivery and governance of the whole project, from the detailed design of the road layout to construction, is being delivered under the Alliance delivery model with NZTA as the principal client.

Design Process

5.12    The current scheme largely remains the same as the initial specimen design used during the hearing for the designation.  One section of Cranford Street between McFaddens Road and the NAE has required modifications. The reasons for the departure from the initial specimen design along this section of Cranford Street is:

·   The Consent Order entered into by Council and two local businesses determined the location of the turning bays and turning areas; and

·   Safety concerns raised about on street parking along that section of Cranford Street.

5.13    To address the safety concerns, the on street parking provision was proposed to be removed and an updated design was circulated to adjacent residents and businesses by the CNC Alliance.  A number of the adjacent businesses and residents raised concerns about the total loss of on street parking along this section of Cranford Street.

5.14    The Council staff developed a scheme that accommodated the retention of some on street parking along this section of Cranford Street. This scheme layout included:

·   Provision of some on street parking with a 1.0 m wide buffer zone between the traffic lane and parking;

·   Setback distances for parking from the commercial access points to provide better visibility and line of sight for drivers; and

·   Speed humps at all commercial access points to slow exiting vehicles.

5.15    Changes relocating the pedestrian crossing to the north of the McFaddens Road intersection have been incorporated, as shown in Plan 2, Appendix A.

5.16    This layout was reviewed by an independent safety auditor, as attached in Appendix C. They confirmed the proposed layout provisions will mitigate identified safety concerns with retaining on street parking along this section of Cranford Street.

5.17    The scheme for the Cranford Street/Innes Road intersection remains largely the same as the initial specimen design used for the hearing during the designation. The only change introduced is the extension of the left turn bay heading north from Innes Road into Cranford Street following the purchase of property 209A Innes Road.

5.18    The scheme includes new bus stops near the intersection of Knowles Street and Cranford Street, as shown in Plan 4, Appendix A and the minor relocation of bus stops north of the McFaddens Road intersection.

5.19    The locations of the proposed bus stops have been rationalised to provide the community with convenient access to public transport while balancing an efficient spacing of bus stops along Cranford Street.

Community Engagement

5.20    In May 2018 the CNC Alliance consulted with adjacent residents and businesses on the following:

·   The scheme for Cranford Street between McFaddens Road and the NAE including on street parking provision;

·   The changes to pedestrian crossing north of the McFaddens Road intersection;

·   The intersection layout of Cranford Street and Innes Road; and

·   The relocation of bus stops.

5.21    A summary of the submissions received as a result of this consultation is set out in Appendix D.

5.22    Of the nine submissions received, one was neutral and five were in favour of the amended layout (in particular the retention of some of the on street car parking).  Two responses were negative and related to the left in, left out turns at McFadden Road. As the intersection layout of McFaddens Road and Cranford Street is consistent with the specimen design, no changes are proposed. 

5.23    Two submissions on the bus stops were received, both in support with minor modifications. One submitter suggested moving the bus stops outside 258 Cranford Street, one metre further north. This minor modification has been accommodated for. The second submitter suggested that the bus stops be staggered in the opposite manner to what was proposed. Due to the amount of available road space on Cranford Street the bus stops on the east and west side of the road have been located in the traffic lane. This type of bus stop has the advantage of giving priority to buses, which means the bus can immediately resume travel after picking up or dropping off passengers. However, such types of bus stops have to be placed with care. In the case of the bus stop located on the west side of the road, it cannot be placed on the Innes Road side of the intersection as a stopped bus would restrict the safe line of sight for pedestrians crossing Cranford Street at the Knowles Street intersection. Furthermore, placing the bus stop closer to the Cranford Street/Innes Road intersection would limit the amount of distance, and as result the amount of time that a driver has to decide if it safe to change lanes or not. The design team have since informed the submitter of this rational.

6.   Option 1 – Northern Arterial Extension and Cranford Street with on street parking provision (preferred option)

Option Description

6.1       Option 1 includes amendments to the layout of the scheme for the section of Cranford Street between McFaddens Road and QEII Drive as shown in Appendix A to accommodate some (reduced) on street parking. 

6.2       The key features for the layout of Cranford Street between McFaddens Road and the NAE includes:

·   A 1.4 metre wide grass berm on the east side;

·   A 2.5 metre wide shared path for cyclists and pedestrians on the east side;

·   A 3.1 metre wide shared path for cyclists and pedestrians on the west side;

·   A 2.1 metre wide parking lane on the east side, accommodating 18 on street car park spaces;

·   A 2.1 metre wide parking lane on the west side, accommodating 11 on street car park spaces;

·   A 1.0 metre clearance strip between on street parking and the outside traffic lane on the west side of the road;

·   A 1.0 metre clearance strip between on street parking and the outside traffic lane on the east side of the road;

·   Two 3.2 metre wide southbound traffic lanes to the east of the central median;

·   Two 3.2 metre wide northbound traffic lanes to the west of the central median;

·   A 4.0 metre wide central median;

·   Two turning bays within the central median on the east side;

·   One turning bay within the central median on the west side;

·   One bus stop on the east side; and

·   One bus stop on the west side.

·   Speed humps at all commercial access points

6.3       The McFaddens Road/Cranford Street intersection will be separated by the central median and will be left turn in, left turn out only (as per the initial specimen design).

6.4       The pedestrian crossing at McFaddens Road has been relocated as shown in Appendix A according to hearing decision requirements and safety audit requirements.

6.5       Bus stops on Cranford Street between Innes Road and the NAE have been repositioned to near the Knowles Street / Cranford Road intersections as shown in Appendix A attached.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.7       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

6.8       The residents residing along Cranford Street particularly north of McFadden are specifically affected by this option due to reduction of on street car parking.  Of the nine submissions received five responded on the proposed CSU layout, supporting the retention of some on street parking.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.10    Funding is provided in the draft LTP.  This design has the potential to generate variation costs to the Alliance, but this provided for in the LTP. 

6.11    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs have been accounted for within the current maintenance agreements.

6.12    Funding source for the proposal is through the capital programme and includes approximately 51% subsidy from NZ Transport Agency on eligible items.

Legal Implications

6.13    There is no known legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision.

6.14    This report has been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit.

Risks and Mitigations

6.15    There is a risk that any delay to this decision could delay the Alliance delivery, resulting in additional cost to Council.

6.15.1 Residual risk rating: The residual rating of the risk after the below treatment is implemented will be Low.

6.15.2 The current reporting process meets the Alliance delivery timeframes.

6.16    There is a safety risk as identified in the safety review report (attached in Appendix B) that insufficient stopping sight distance between all access ways and on street parking could result in an increased safety risk for all users.

6.16.1 Residual risk rating: The residual rating of the risk after the below treatment is implemented will be moderate to low.

6.16.2 The scheme includes sufficient safe stopping sight distances between all on street parking spaces and access ways and the implementation of speed humps across commercial access ways.

Implementation

6.17    Implementation dependencies - none known.

6.18    Implementation timeframe is expected to complete construction mid-2020.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.19    The advantages of this option include:

·     Provision of some on street parking provides consistency with the initial specimen design used during the Designation Hearing and the amended design plan attached to the Consent Order.

·     This option provides a balanced solution that addresses safety concerns and consent requirement and also meets the needs of local businesses and residents by retaining some on street parking.

·     The provision of a safe pedestrian crossing option near the Cranford Street/McFaddens Road intersection that satisfies both the Hearing Decision requirements and safety audit concerns.

·     Provision of two suitable and safe bus stop locations on each side of Cranford Street.

6.20    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     The provision of on-street parking on a multi-lane arterial corridor with commercial access points generally increases safety risk for all users. This risk has been mitigated through design and the introduction of features such as buffer zones, speed humps and setback distances;

·     Cyclists using this section of Cranford Street will be sharing the space with pedestrians. Given the close proximity of the Papanui Parallel cycleway (which is a physically separated, high quality route designed for this purpose), it is expected that the majority of cyclists will use the Papanui Parallel instead of Cranford Street.

·     Potential additional cost to Council.

7.   Option 2 – Norther Arterial Extension and Cranford Street Upgrade without on-street parking provision

Option Description

7.1       Option 2 is similar to Option 1 with the removal of all on street parking and the provision of 1.5 meter wide shoulder on both sides of road.

7.2       The key features for this cross section layout includes:

·     A 1.5 metre wide shoulder on the east side of the road;

·     A 1.5 metre wide shoulder on the west side of the road;

·     A 2.5 metre wide shared path for cyclists and pedestrians on the east side;

·     A 3.1 metre wide shared path for cyclists and pedestrians on the west side;

·     Two 3.2 metre wide southbound traffic lanes to the east of the central median;

·     Two 3.2 metre wide northbound traffic lanes to the west of the central median;

·     A 4.0 metre wide central median;

·     Two turning bays within the central median on the east side;

·     One turning bay within the central median on the west side;

·     Two bus stop on the east side; and

·     Two bus stop on the west side.

7.3       The McFaddens Road/Cranford Street intersection will be separated by the central median and will be left turn in, left turn out only (as per the initial specimen design).

7.4       The pedestrian crossing at McFaddens Road has been relocated as shown in Appendix A according to hearing decision requirements and safety audit requirements.

7.5       Bus stops on Cranford Street between Innes Road and the NAE have been repositioned to near the Knowles Street / Cranford Road intersections as shown in Appendix A attached.

Significance

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

7.7       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

7.8       The residents residing along Cranford Street particularly north of McFadden are specifically affected by this option due to the loss of on street car parking.  Of the nine submissions received five responded on the proposed CSU layout, supporting the retention of some on street parking.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.10    Funding is provided in the draft LTP.

7.11    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs have been accounted for within the current maintenance agreements.

7.12    Funding source for the proposal is through the capital programme and includes approximately 51 % subsidy from NZ Transport Agency on eligible items.

Legal Implications

7.13    This report has been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit.

7.14    The specimen design used in the designation hearing and amended as agreed in the Consent Order contained on street parking on Cranford Street and McFaddens Road and the NAE.  During engagement with the local community the CNC Alliance shared a proposed scheme design that showed that all on street parking had been removed.  Adjacent businesses raised their concerns about the departure from the specimen design in the Consent Order.  The loss of all on street parking on Cranford Street between McFaddens Road and the NAE could result in legal challenges.

Risks and Mitigations

7.15    There is a risk of uncertainty of delivery caused by removal of on street parking provision which is different to the consented plan. This may result in legal challenge, negative media coverage and/or potential additional expenditure.

7.15.1 Residual risk rating: The rating of the risk will be medium to high.

Implementation

7.16    Implementation dependencies - would require a redesign from the CNC Alliance to remove on street car parking.

7.17    Implementation timeframe is construction expected to complete construction mid-2020

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.18    The advantages of this option include:

·     It provides a safe pedestrian crossing option at the McFaddens Road intersection that meets both Hearing Decision requirements and safety audit concerns; and

·     It includes two suitable and safe bus stop locations on each side of Cranford Street satisfying requirements set out by IDS and Environment Canterbury; and

7.19    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     It creates potential inconsistency with the initial specimen design providing for on street parking which the Community consulted on and made submissions on as part of the NoR Designation Hearing and the Environment Consent appeal;

·     The removal of on-street parking has received some opposition from the adjacent residential properties and businesses, most of those strongly opposed the concept of losing on street car parking spaces during preliminary engagement completed by the CNC Alliance and indicated to take the matter through legal avenues; and;

·     Cyclists using this section of Cranford Street will be sharing the space with pedestrians. Given the close proximity of the Papanui Parallel cycleway (which is a physically separated, high quality route designed for this purpose), it is expected that the majority of cyclists will use the Papanui Parallel instead of Cranford Street.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to seek the Papanui-Innes Community Board’s recommendation that Council approves a change from 60km/h to 50km/h on Main North Road and Cranford Street as shown on Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated in response to requests from the community and NZTA to align with the safe and appropriate speed set by NZTA.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by assessment of the magnitude of the problem and the number of properties affected by the preferred option also by the low cost and risk associated with the decision.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Papanui-Innes Community Board recommend that Council:

1.         Approve that pursuant to Part 4 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, speed limits be revoked and set as listed below in clauses 1.a to 1.d and include the resulting changes in the Christchurch City Register of Speed Limits & Speed Limit Maps:

a.         Revoke the 60 kilometres per hour speed limit applied to Main North Road from Queen Elizabeth II Drive southerly, generally along Main North Road to Cranford Street.

b.         Approve that the speed limit of: Main North Road from Queen Elizabeth II Drive southerly, generally along Main North Road to Cranford Street be set to 50 kilometres per hour.

c.         Revoke the 60 kilometres per hour speed limit applied to Cranford Street from Main North Road southerly, generally to a point 300 metres north of McFaddens Road.

d.         Approve that the speed limit of:  Cranford Street from Main North Road southerly, generally to a point 300 metres north of McFaddens Road be set to 50 kilometres per hour.

2.         Approve that the speed limit changes listed above in clauses 1a to 1d come into force following the date of council approval and any installation and removal of signs shown on Attachment A. (Approximately August 2018).

 

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

·     Level of Service: 10.0.31 Protect vulnerable users – minimise the number of fatal crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Change the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h as shown on Attachment A.

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Aim to lower actual speeds further

·     Aligns posted speed limit with NZTA Speed Management Guide 2016 and requirements of Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 for road controlling authorities (RCAs) to set safe and appropriate speeds.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     There are no known disadvantages.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       It was recently brought to the attention of NZTA and CCC that there are conflicting gazetted intersection speeds at Main North/Northcote/QE II Drive. After further investigations it was also identified that some of the adjoining roads are not aligned with the safe speed recommendation, as determined in accordance with the NZTA Speed Management Guide (2016) and other associated resources.

5.2       Lowering the speed limit on Main North Road, south of the Northcote Road/Queen Elizabeth II intersection to 50km/h would align with the safe and appropriate speed for that section of road as identified in the NZTA Guide and resources. While the current posted speed limit of 60km/h on Cranford Street is in alignment with the safe and appropriate speed recommended in the NZTA Guide and resources, staff consider that a reduced speed limit of 50km/h would be more appropriate given the heavy volumes of traffic and the built up nature of the environment with residential entrances, various businesses and a school frontage. While it is acknowledged that there is a section of Cranford Street that currently has a somewhat rural feel, and may therefore justify a 60km/h speed limit, this location is where the new Christchurch Northern Corridor (CNC) will connect to Cranford Street and is expected to significantly alter the feel and complexity of the traffic environment such that a lower (50km/h) speed limit would be appropriate.

5.3       Also to note the most recent Cranford Street volume and speed counts has the average mean speed at 53.1 km/h so proposing to lower the current 60km/h to 50km/h is supported by this (see Attachment B).

NZTA Speed Management Guide

5.4       The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) Speed Management Guide was published in November 2016 and has been followed up by a revision of, Land Transport Rule (The Rule): Setting of Speed Limits 2003. The revised Land Transport Rule: has been active since 21 September 2017.

5.5       The guide is an integral part of the Safer Journeys Safer Speeds Programme. The overall goal of the safer speeds programme, which sets the direction for speed management in New Zealand, in line with the governments Safer Journeys Road Safety Strategy 2010-2020 is to:

Reduce death and serious injuries, and support economic productivity through travel speeds that are safe and appropriate for road function, design, safety and use.

5.6       The Speed Management Guide introduces a modern approach to speed management on New Zealand roads. The 2017 Rule formalises the approach to speed management. In particular, it: -

·    Requires Road Controlling Authorities (RCAs) to set speed limits that are, in the RCAs view, safe and appropriate; and

·    Encourages a consistent approach to speed management throughout New Zealand; and

·    Replaces the methodology of the 2003 Rule with assessment criteria and outcome statements based on the approach in the Guide.

Community Consultation

5.7       Affected residents and stakeholders were consulted between 20 April and 14 May 2018. The proposal was endorsed by the NZTA.

5.8       In total, 250 residencies and 74 absentee owners were sent the consultation document. The document was available in Council community centres and libraries and key stakeholders were sent a link to the ‘Have Your Say’ page on the Council website.

5.9       Of the 47 valid submissions received (see Attachment C), 79% were in favour of the lower speed limit, 19% were opposed and one submitter did not state a preference.

 

6.   Option 1 - Change the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Change the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h on Cranford Street and Main North Road as shown on Attachment A.

6.2       The proposed speed limit change to 50km/h aligns with the NZTA speed management guidance.

Significance

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

6.4       Engagement requirements for this level of significance included consultation of affected residents and key stakeholders.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.5       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

6.6       In accordance with the NZTA Land Transport Rule – Setting Speed Limits, NZTA and NZ Police were consulted with prior to consultation and provided their support to reduce the speed limit. In addition, any local and territorial authorities were informed by way of consultation. 

6.7       Of the 47 valid submissions received (see Attachment C), 79% were in favour of the lower speed limit, 19% were opposed and one submitter did not state a preference.

 

6.8       Of the submitters in support of the proposal 16 did so for the perceived safety improvement. A further six thought the proposal would make improvements for people traveling by non-car modes. Groups who supported the proposals included Environment Canterbury, Spokes, Foodstuffs South Island, Spark NZ Ltd. and Papanui Primary School.

 

6.9       Submitters who opposed the speed reduction did so for individual reasons. There was some common perception that the reduction was unnecessary and would not change driver behaviour or road conditions. Christchurch Citizens Collective opposed to the proposal.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.11    Cost of Implementation – Approximately $1,000 for the supply and install of two new 50km/h signs and the removal of any existing 60 km/h signs and poles.

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

6.13    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.14    Speed limits must be set in accordance with Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 and subsequent amendments. 

6.15    Part 4 (Clause 27) of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to set speed limits by resolution.  The Council has not delegated its authority to set speed limits. 

6.16    The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.17    Not applicable.

Implementation

6.18    Implementation dependencies - Council approval.

6.19    Implementation timeframe - Approximately four weeks following Council approval.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.20    The advantages of this option include:

·   Aligns with the NZTA speed management guidance for this area.

6.21    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   No known disadvantages.

7.   Option 2 - Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Retain existing speed limit.

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is low, and is consistent with section 2 of this report. However it is important to note that the option to do nothing does trigger a higher risk to Council. The junction of Main North Road and QEII Drive/Northcote Road currently has conflicting gazetted speed limits. After consulting with NZTA regarding this it was agreed that the best option would be to gazette the Main North Road part of the intersection to the lower speed limit of 50Km/h that the Northcote and QEII legs of the intersection currently have. At present, due to these conflicting speed limits there could be enforceability issues and if the option to  “Do Nothing” is chosen it may open up authorities to legal challenges.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3       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

7.4       In accordance with the NZTA Land Transport Rule – Setting Speed Limits, NZTA and NZ Police were consulted with prior to consultation and provided their support to reduce the speed limit. In addition, any local and territorial authorities were informed by way of consultation.

7.5       Of the 47 submitters, nine did not support the proposed 50 km/h speed limit and did not believe that the speed reduction was necessary.

7.6       This option is inconsistent with requests to achieve safety improvements associated with a speed limit change.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.8       Cost of Implementation - $0

7.9       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - $0

7.10    Funding source - Not applicable.

Legal Implications

7.11    Speed limits must be set in accordance with Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017.  A road controlling authority must consider whether a speed limit for a road is safe and appropriate in accordance with the Rule.  Staff are of the opinion that existing speeds as they relate to this option are not the safe and appropriate speeds.

Risks and Mitigations

7.12    Not applicable.

Implementation

7.13    Implementation dependencies - Not applicable.

7.14    Implementation timeframe - Not applicable.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   There are no identified advantages to this option.

7.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   This option is inconsistent with speed management principles.

·   In the opinion of staff, this option does not meet the regulatory requirements of the Setting of Speed Limits Rule 2017.

4.   Key Points

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

 

4.1.1   Activity: Parking

·     Level of Service: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance.

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 sightlines at the Grants Road/Proctor Street intersection.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

5.   Context/Background

5.1       There have been recent concerns raised by members of the public regarding the operations of the Grants Road/ Proctor Street intersection.  The intersection is an uncontrolled T-intersection with priority given to Grants Road.

5.2       The issue is that vehicles are being parked on Grants Road in close proximity to Proctor Street.  Site investigations and sightline calculations have confirmed that improvements can be made to sightlines.

5.3       It is proposed to install No Stopping restrictions on Grants Road either side of Proctor Street. By installing these restrictions, it will limit the need for drivers to nose out into the intersection for better visibility.  Also the approaches to the intersection are narrow, such that there is little space for motorists to take evasive action to avoid any vehicle that pulls out unexpectedly and installing No Stopping restrictions will aid in preventing this from occurring.

5.4       Affected property owners and residents were advised of the proposed option by way of a letter drop. There were no objections to this proposal.

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

Option Description

6.1       Install No Stopping restrictions on Grants Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance includes the consultation with the owner and occupier of any property likely to be injuriously affected by the option.

6.8       Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

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

Legal Implications

6.10    Part 1, Clauses 7 and 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

6.11    The 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 stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.12    The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.13    There are no risks associated with this option.

Implementation

6.14    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.15    Implementation timeframe - Approximately four weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

The Trust have entered into a partnership with Dancing with the Stars co-host and comedian, Dai Henwood, to complete six webinars which focus on how chronic stress affects children, the resulting behaviours and strategies on how to deal with it. “A lot of parents are taking on blame… a lot of the old strategies to deal with behaviours don’t work because the children are not in control of their actions and in actual fact it’s a biological response” Ginny Larsen (NHT).
