4.   Key Points

4.1       This recommendations in this report are consistent with the anticipated outcomes of the Traffic Safety & Efficiency Service Plan in the Councils Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028)

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 and assists heavy vehicles manoeuvring at the commercial property accesses on the north side of Te Rama Place.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes car parking spaces.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Earlier this year Council received a customer service request asking for consideration to install ‘no stopping’ restrictions adjacent to some of the commercial vehicle accesses on the north side of Te Rama Place.

5.2       Te Rama Place is somewhat unique, in that it serves as the sole access to a number of industrial zoned properties on the north side of the road yet only has a formed roadway width of 9m. This is below Council’s 11m minimum width standard typically applied to new roads in industrial areas. While the 9m width is entirely appropriate for the residential zoned properties on the south side of the road, the width causes difficulties for larger commercial vehicles accessing the commercial properties on the north side (especially when there are parked vehicles directly adjacent to and/or opposite the access). It is understood that this has, at times, resulted in some commercial vehicle drivers choosing to conduct loading/unloading activities from the street when they can’t access the sites they are servicing. This practise is of course unacceptable in terms of health and safety, but also inconvenience to residential neighbours and other road users.

5.3       A search of the NZTA Crash Analysis System (CAS) reveals no reported crashes on Te Rama Place between Tahuna Street and Helanca Avenue in the most recent five year period.

 


 

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

Option Description

6.1       This option is to install no stopping restrictions on the north side of Te Rama Place adjacent to two Industrial-zoned properties as indicated on 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.

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 preferred option by post, letter box drop, email or, in one instance, hand delivered. Only one response was received by the end of the consultation period, and that was in support of the preferred option.

6.5       The Team Leader Parking Compliance supports this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation - $50 for the installation of traffic controls, plus $750 for consultation and the preparation of this report

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

10.    Queenspark Drive Bus Stop Relocation

Reference:

18/931812

Presenter(s):

Wayne Gallot, Traffic Engineer

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waitai/Coastal-Burwood Community Board to approve the relocation of an existing bus stop on the south side of Queenspark Drive east of Cottonwood Street (adjacent to Parklands Reserve) in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

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 comparing factors relating to this decision against the criteria set out in the Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

4.   Key Points

4.1       This recommendations in this report are consistent with the anticipated outcomes of the Traffic Safety & Efficiency Service Plan in the Councils Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028)

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Relocate Bus Stop and Reconfigure 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 Cottonwood Street – Queenspark Drive intersection.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes car parking spaces.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Council staff received a request from Shane Thompson of the NZ Police (forwarded to CCC from staff at Environment Canterbury) to relocate the existing bus stop on the south side of Queenspark Drive east of Cottonwood Street. The request came after a member of the public had contacted NZ Police with safety related concerns associated with restricted visibility at the Cottonwood Street – Queenspark Drive intersection when the bus stop is occupied.

5.2       A search of the NZTA Crash Analysis System (CAS) database reveals only three reported crashes within 100m of this intersection over the most recent five year period, none of which were associated with turning movements at the intersection nor occupation of the bus stop.

5.3       The bus stop in question is the terminus of the #80 (Lincoln / Parklands) service, and is used by drivers as a layover stop before turning around at the Inwoods Road – Queenspark Drive roundabout and beginning the next service at the first stop on the route located on the north side of Queenspark Drive east of Inwoods Road. The time between the end of one service and the beginning of the next service is typically around 15-30 minutes.

5.4       It has been observed that, when there are no passengers wanting to get off at this stop, many bus drivers choose to lay over either in the Parklands Reserve car parking area or at the previous bus stop opposite the Parklands Shopping Centre. This is particularly the case during the week when there are no events on at the Reserve, and ambient parking demand on-street and within the Reserve car park is low. However, on Saturdays and other times when there are larger events on at the Reserve, there is often no other option for drivers to lay over other than at the existing bus stop.

5.5       Following investigation and consideration of the issue, staff agreed that there was a potential safety related issue due to restricted visibility when the bus stop was occupied. Further, it was considered that the bus stop could be relocated further east to improve the situation, without any significant loss of on-street parking.

5.6       Although the preferred option still allows for general kerbside parking in the location of the existing bus stop, it is expected that future parking in this location would be mostly light vehicles (e.g. cars) that would have a significantly lesser impact on intersection visibility on the basis that they do not extend out into the roadway as much as a bus and often allow a degree of visibility through the windows.

6.   Option 1 - Relocate Bus Stop and Reconfigure No Stopping Restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       This option relocates the existing bus stop (and sign), and reconfigures the existing no stopping restrictions as indicated on 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.

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       As the location is adjacent the Council owned Parklands Reserve, information on the preferred option was sent to the Council’s Parks Unit plus NZ Police (Shane Thompson), Environment Canterbury and the Parklands United Sports Club.

6.5       NZ Police, Environment Canterbury and the Parklands United Sports Club support the preferred option. No response was received from Council’s Parks Unit.

6.6       The Team Leader Parking Compliance also supports this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.8       Cost of Implementation - $800 for the removal, installation and relocation of traffic controls, plus $750 for consultation and the preparation of this report.

6.9       Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

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

Legal Implications

6.11    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.

6.12    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.

3.   Community Board Activities and Forward Planning

3.1       Memos/Information/Advice to the Board

3.1.1   Broad Park - Health and Safety Equipment Removal

The platform of the flying fox at Broad Park was unstable so the flying fox has been taken away for repairs. Our parks unit are currently looking at the repairs that need to be undertaken. The slide had rust on it so has also had to be removed – this will be replaced with a new slide. The Northshore and North Beach Residents’ Associations have been advised of the above. The parks team will provide updates.

3.1.2   Bexley Reserve

On 3 September 2018, the Board noted there were large soil piles by the Pages Road pump station and in Bexley Reserve that should be removed if possible.

Council staff visited the site during the week beginning 8 October week and removed 2 tonne of general household rubbish and builder rubble (concrete) from various parts of the Bexley Reserve.

Council staff estimated there to be around 200 cubic meters of “pitrun” remaining, which will be used for remedial work around Christchurch, for example to fill potholes. There are plans to remove this over the summer.

3.1.3   Recognition for the Estuary

The Avon-Heathcote Estuary has received international recognition for its importance as a safe haven for scores of migratory birds. It is the only urban wetland in Australasia to become part of the East Asian-Australasia Flyway network (EAAF).

The Department of Conservation have been working with the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai Trust for the last two years to have the estuary recognised internationally by the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership.

The estuary is the home to many migratory birds, including lesser knots/huahou the South Island pied oystercatcher/torea and the most well-known being the bar-tailed godwit/kuaka.

Over September up to mid-October around 1000 godwits/kuaka have arrived back in the Avon-Heathcote Ihutai estuary after their annual non-stop 11,000-kilometre flight from Alaska.

5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

5.1       Other partnerships with the community and organisations

Burwood, Avondale and Dallington Community Groups Meetings

The Burwood, Avondale and Dallington community group meetings with Council Staff and Coastal-Burwood Community Board member, Linda Stewart and Councillor Glenn Livingstone continue to happen monthly. The group are currently looking at three localised smaller community events, one in each area and a combined event to be held in March of 2019. They are also in the process of looking to engage someone to progress a facility feasibility study for the areas as a collective. The study is hoped to be completed by the end of this year. As details of the events are confirmed and the study progresses the information will be shared with and opportunities for further involvement with their community's and the Community Board, will be looked at by the group.

5.2       Community Facilities (updates and future plans)

Parklands Library earthquake repairs although the damage to library is only moderate, this work will result in a strengthened and refurbished library with spaces modified to better suit the needs of users. Parklands Library will be closed for earthquake repairs from Monday 19 November, and is scheduled to reopen in April 2019. The café will also be closed for this period. To assist Parklands customers with this temporary closure, a mobile library vehicle will visit the Parklands library car park three times a week for the duration of the closure.

The repair work will see the library’s Heating and Ventilation system replaced, and all lights replaced with energy-efficient LED fittings. Floor coverings will be replaced, computer work stations will be moved, and all areas will be decorated. Please find attached (Attachment B) advice from the Head of Libraries and Information on the closure of Parklands Library for earthquake repairs

5.3       Infrastructure projects underway

Renewal of Water mains in McBratneys Road – This renewal will replace and upgrade the existing watermains, which are reaching the end of their life, on McBratneys road from Banks Avenue/Dallington Terrace to Gayhurst Road. Work will start late November 2018 and is expected to continue until late January 2019.

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

6.1       Slide ‘n’ Ride to Treetech Fireworks Spectacular

This year for the Fireworks Spectacular on Friday 2nd November, the Council are providing a direct and more environmentally-friendly trip in and out of New Brighton free of charge. The buses will run regularly from Taiora QEII from 5 to 8pm and every bus passenger over the age of 5 will get a complimentary ticket for a hydroslide ride which they can use at either Taiora QEII or at Jellie Park.

 At the end of the night, when the fireworks have ended, there will be free buses to bring people back to Taiora QEII.  The buses, which will depart between 9.30 and 10.30pm, will be able to bypass road closures and will have priority over other vehicles when leaving New Brighton so it’s going to be a quicker alternative than taking your own car.

6.2       Residential Unit Overlay within High Flood Hazard Management Area

Council has approved the commencement of the first steps to amend a policy in the District Plan to support the Residential Unit Overlay rule and broaden the application of the existing rule which permits replacement of existing houses within the Residential Unit Overlay.

6.3       Common Ground

Common Ground is a collaboration of South Brighton community organisations and mobile food operators to activate an empty section at the South Brighton roundabout as a community gathering space for the South Brighton and Southshore communities. It will provide a place for eating, meeting, learning, performing, sharing, growing food, for markets and exhibitions, and for sharing food and produce. These projects and activities are designed specifically to support the community in understanding and contributing to a less wasteful and more sustainable and caring world. Links will be made to city-wide, national and international movements, while helping locals to feel empowered and able to respond to the issues of climate change that affect them directly. Sustain South Brighton believes that this approach will help strengthen the resilience and wellbeing of a community that has lived with uncertainty and stress for many years. Sustain South Brighton has obtained a lease on the vacant land at 91 Estuary Road.
