5.   Deputations by Appointment

Part B

5.1       Bebe Frayle - Dallington Residents Association

             Bebe Frayle, Chairperson of the Dallington Residents Association, spoke on the Association’s tabled correspondence at item 7 in the agenda. On behalf of the Dallington Residents’ Association, Bebe reported a mixture of  residents’ concerns about traffic safety in the vicinity of the Dallington Bridge. Bebe explained that since the bridge’s rebuild in 2015 visibility issues mean that people do not feel safe at adjacent intersections. In addition there are concerns about the safety of cyclists and pedestrians crossing the bridge, particularly at peak times.

             She also pointed out that an increase in traffic in the area if proposals for the future use of red zone land are put in place could result in more issues.

             After questions from members, the Chairperson thanked Bebe Frayle for her deputation.



6.   Presentation of Petitions

Part B

There was no presentation of petitions.

8.   Briefings


The Board received a briefing from traffic staff on Dallington Bridge, Gayhurst Road safety concerns. This addressed issues raised in the correspondence and a deputation from the Dallington Residents Association.

The Board was informed that the former bridge was irreparably damaged in the 2011 earthquake and the replacement bridge was built to a design that alters the lines of sight. Staff advised that while the road surface on the bridge is not visible to vehicles on the Avonside Drive approaches, vehicles accessing the bridge from the north can be safely seen. Safety audits of the bridge have been undertaken by Stronger Christchurch  Infrastructure Rebuild team (SCIRT) and the Council and it was found to be safe. Some minor improvements to road markings and signage  have since been installed.

Staff further advised that police reports on recent accidents occurring on and near the bridge are not yet available but that they would be followed up.



7.   Correspondence


Board Comment

The Board received tabled late correspondence from the Dallington Residents Association about traffic safety in the vicinity of the Dallington Bridge.

The Board discussed the issues raised in this correspondence, the deputation and the briefing and it was agreed that an on-site meeting of traffic staff, Board members and representative(s) from the Dallington Residents’ Association be held to discuss the issues would be beneficial.
