5.2       From a site visit it showed that there are two existing bus only parks which have restricted times of 8:15 to 9:15 am and 2:30 to 3:30 pm as were requested by Marian College previously. The stop directly out in front of Marian College is 14m in length with the other stop, near the Basilica, 38 metres in length.

5.3       Consultation was again undertaken with Marian College to confirm the restricted times were still valid. They also stated that they would only need parks for two buses, at any one time, for access for pupils to their school.

5.4       To accommodate a tour coach park, a proposal was put forward to alter the existing 38 metre bus park into one 14 metre bus park (for the school) with a sufficient entry taper and a 16m tour coach park  – refer to Attachment A.

5.5       The proposal was sent to Marian College for feedback which was an approval for the changes.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee to approve a bus stop layout alteration at 21 Ferry Road (bus stop on St Asaph Street), approve the relocation of a bus stop from 150 Kilmore Street to 132-140 Kilmore Street and the replacement of the existing bus stop with three ‘P10’ parking spaces.

1.2       This report is staff generated.  The decision to present this report runs in parallel to a separate bus passenger shelter report issued to the Hagley/Ferrymead Community Board that is associated with the bus stops identified in this report.  The reason why the bus stops in this report have been selected is due to, but not limited to the following reasons:

·   Deficiencies in bus stop road markings that have been identified in the Greater Christchurch Bus Stop Audit (2015).

·   Changes to the surrounding road network

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 assessing the impact of the project against the 10 criteria set out in the Significance and Engagement assessment.

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

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: 10.4.1 Contribute to increase number of trips made by public transport

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Approval of the proposed road marking alterations at 21 Ferry Road (bus stop on St Asaph Street), and approval of a bus stop at 132-140 Kilmore Street.

·     Option 2 – Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Bus stop road markings adhere to the recommended bus stop road markings as indicated in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009). 

·     Adherence to the recommended bus stop length improves passenger accessibility, as buses have sufficient space to straighten and stop parallel to the kerb.

·     Provision of the recommended bus stop length has the potential to improve the operational performance of the bus line(s) that use the bus stop.

·     The proposed bus stop road marking improvements sit alongside proposed improvements to passenger waiting facilities (bus passenger shelter).

·     At the St Asaph Street bus stop the risk posed by the storm water grate that is currently located at the head of the bus stop will be removed by lengthening the bus stop. 

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Lengthening the St Asaph Street bus stop road markings to adhere to the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009) will result in the loss of two on-street parking spaces.  The impact is mitigated by the availability of on and off-street parking supply located nearby. 

·     Loss of four unrestricted, on-street parking spaces adjacent to 132-140 Kilmore Street.  Note: these on-street parking spaces currently operate without any time restrictions as there are no signs present.  However, the parking on this section of Kilmore Street has been resolved to have P120 time restricted parking. 

·     The removal of the existing bus stop adjacent to 150 Kilmore Street allows the installation of three, 10-minute time restricted parking spaces. 

 

5.   Context/Background

Background – Proposed Bus Stop Road Marking Alteration at 21 Ferry Road (bus stop on St Asaph Street)

5.1       The bus stop on St Asaph Street measures approximately 24.5 metres, 8.5 metres short of the 33 metre recommended minimum length suitable for this type of bus stop configuration as indicated in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).  The bus stop has been in operation since at least 2007. 

Background – Proposed Bus Stop at 132-140 Kilmore Street.

5.2       Christchurch City Council provides bus stop and other on-street facilities for the city-wide public transport system.  In April 2015 Christchurch City Council was asked by Environment Canterbury staff to provide additional bus stop to accommodate the changes to the bus lines in the CBD that would be timed with the opening of the Central City Bus Interchange.  As part of this process a bus stop at 150 Kilmore Street was installed under temporary authorisation (i.e. no authorisation granted by the delegated authority).

5.3       During the time of the bus stop installation it was identified by staff that an international car rental precinct had received approval to develop at 150 Kilmore Street.  The vehicular access to the car rental precinct was located at the same location as where the bus stop would be installed.  Due to the significant scale of the car rental precinct the driveway provision is much wider than a standard commercial crossing, as it also allows space for a below ground fuel tank space directly adjacent to the driveway. 

5.4       The existing bus stop at 150 Kilmore Street is used by passengers who catch the Blue line, 28, 29 and 95 bus lines.  Given the choice passenger on what bus suits their needs, this bus stop has become busy in the short period it has been operational.  Due to number of buses that could use this stop, and the significant disruption that could be caused by allowing it to block a driveway of a conflicting activity it has been concluded by staff that the bus stop would be better located adjacent to 132-140 Kilmore Street.

5.5       The removal of the existing bus stop adjacent to 150 Kilmore Street allows the installation of three, 10-minute time restricted parking spaces.

5.6       The proposed bus stop site at 132-140 Kilmore Street would be located adjacent to a private, off-street car park.

Public Consultation

5.7       The properties listed below are those specifically affected by this option due to the proximity of the property to the proposed bus stops.  A consultation notice and feedback form was mailed or ‘letter dropped’ to each property listed below on 10 August 2016, requesting the owners or occupiers approval or objection to the bus shelter at the bus stop outside the property they own or occupy.  The consultation process closed on 26 August 2016.

·   St Asaph Street:  21 Ferry Road (Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology and the Ministry Of Education), and

·   Kilmore Street:  150, 132 to 140 Kilmore Street.

5.8       The owner of 150 Kilmore Street has contacted staff to provide their approval to the bus stop relocation and installation of three ‘P10’ on-street parking spaces adjacent to 150 Kilmore Street.  No feedback has been received from the owner and/or occupiers of the remaining addresses listed for Kilmore Street.

5.9       No responses were received from the property owners and/or occupiers of 21 Ferry Road, concerning the lengthening of the bus stop on St Asaph Street that is located adjacent to 21 Ferry Road.

6.   Option 1 - Approval of the proposed road marking alterations at 21 Ferry Road (bus stop on St Asaph Street).  Approval of a new bus stop at 132-140 Kilmore Street.

Option Description

6.1       As shown on Attachments A and C, the recommended bus stop locations are adjacent to 21 Ferry Road (bus stop on St Asaph Street) and 132-140 Kilmore Street.

6.2       As shown on Attachment B, three, 10 minute time restricted on-street parking spaces are recommended to replace the parking restrictions associated with bus stop that is currently located adjacent to 150 Kilmore Street.

6.3       The type of bus stop provided for in all locations, is a 'kerb-side' bus stop, located directly adjacent to the footpath with unrestricted full height kerb present along the full length of the bus stop.  Provision of the necessary entry taper, bus box and exit taper, that adheres to the recommended provisions as set out in the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009) is achievable at all locations. 

6.4       At the St Asaph Street bus stop, a storm water grate is located at the head of the bus stop.  Lengthening the bus stop will remove the risk posed to persons with mobility aids, by this drainage grate as it will no longer be located where the front (or rear) door opens over.

6.5       A tree has been planted within the 600mm clear area adjacent to the bus stop on St Asaph Street.  The risk posed by the tree to being hit by the bus or preventing the bus from stopping as close as possible to the footpath will be monitored for potential future remediation.

Significance

6.6       The level of significance of this option is low, consistent with Section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consultation with adjacent property owners and occupiers, and engagement with ECan as the relevant bus operator.

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 Ngai Tahu, their culture and traditions.

6.8       The properties listed below are those specifically affected by this option due to the proximity of the property to the proposed bus stops.  A consultation notice and feedback form was mailed and ‘letter dropped’ to each property listed below on 10 August 2016, requesting the owners or occupiers approval or objection to the bus shelter at the bus stop outside the property they own or occupy.  The consultation process closed on 26 August 2016.

·   St Asaph Street:  21 Ferry Road (Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology and the Ministry Of Education), and

·   Kilmore Street:  150, 132 to 140 Kilmore Street.

6.9       The owner of 150 Kilmore Street has contacted staff to provide their approval to the bus stop relocation and installation of three ‘P10’ on-street parking spaces adjacent to 150 Kilmore Street.  No feedback has been received from the owner and/or occupiers of the remaining addresses listed for Kilmore Street.

6.10    No responses were received from the property owners and/or occupiers of 21 Ferry Road, concerning the lengthening of the bus stop on St Asaph Street that is located adjacent to 21 Ferry Road.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.12    Cost of Implementation - The estimated cost of the preferred option outlined in this proposal is $4,000.00.

6.13    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Transport and City Streets, Operations Expenditure budget, includes maintenance of bus stop infrastructure, as and when it is needed.

6.14    Funding source - Traffic Operations, Capital Expenditure budget for bus stop installation.

Legal Implications

6.15    The Christchurch City Council, Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008, provides the Council with the authority to install stopping and parking restrictions by resolution.  The Council has delegated this authority for this part of the city to the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee.

6.16    The installation of any traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.  These markings will comply.

6.17    The bus stops at 21 Ferry Road (bus stop on St Asaph Street) and 132-140 Kilmore Street adhere to the minimum recommendations of the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).

6.18    The proposals in this report are consistent with Christchurch City Council’s equity and access for people with disabilities policy (2001).

Risks and Mitigations

6.19    Road users continue to park in the marked bus stop box and on the 'No Stopping' lines.  The risk is mitigated by vehicle users obeying the road rules, or by parking enforcement if deemed necessary.

Implementation

6.20    Implementation dependencies: The implementation is dependent on the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee approving the recommendations as described in Section 3.

6.21    Implementation timeframe:  Work is expected to be completed within three months of the proposed parking restriction resolutions being approved.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.22    The advantages of this option include:

·   Bus stop road markings adhere to the recommended bus stop road markings indicated in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).

·   Adherence to the recommended bus stop length improves passenger accessibility, as buses have sufficient space to straighten and stop parallel to the kerb.

·   Provision the recommended bus stop length also has the potential to improve operational performance of the bus lines that use the bus stop.

·   The proposed bus stop road marking improvements sit alongside proposed improvements to passenger waiting facilities.

·   At the St Asaph Street bus stop the risk posed by the storm water grate that is currently located at the head of the bus stop will be removed by lengthening the bus stop.

6.23    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Lengthening the St Asaph Street bus stop road markings to adhere to the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009) will result in the loss of two on-street parking spaces.  The impact is mitigated by the availability of on and off-street parking supply located nearby. 

·   Loss of four unrestricted, on-street parking spaces adjacent to 132-140 Kilmore Street.  Note due to an error that has occurred in recent years, these on-street parking spaces currently operate without any time restrictions.  The parking on this section of Kilmore Street has been resolved to have time restricted parking allowances such as ‘P120’.  The error in parking restrictions has been brought to the attention of the relevant parking staff.

·   The removal of the existing bus stop adjacent to 150 Kilmore Street allows the installation of three, 10-minute time restricted parking spaces.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Do nothing, existing bus stops road marking are not amended to adhere to the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines, and the bus stop operating under temporary authorisation remains at 150 Kilmore Street.

Significance

7.2       Refer to Section 6.5.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3       Refer to Section 6.7.

Community Views and Preferences

7.4       Refer to Section 6.8 - 6.9.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5       This option is inconsistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

7.5.1   This option is inconsistent with the Long Term Plan as it does not ensure adherence to the bus stop road marking minimum recommends as outlined in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).  Lack of adherence to the recommended road marking has the potential to affect how the bus can pull into a bus stop in a safe and efficient manner, and how close to the kerb the stop can stop to pick-up or set-down passengers.

Financial Implications

7.6       Cost of Implementation - not applicable.

7.7       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - not applicable.

7.8       Funding source - not applicable.

Legal Implications

7.9       The lack of or insufficient length of a marked bus stop does not adhere to the bus stop road marking recommendations as outlined in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009)

Risks and Mitigations

7.10    Lack of adherence to the recommended road marking has the potential to affect how the bus can pull into a bus stop in a safe and efficient manner, and how close to the kerb the stop can stop to pick-up or set-down passengers.

7.11    If the bus stop remains at 150 Kilmore Street, there is a significant risk of the driveway to the International Car Rental Precinct being blocked.  This could have a negative impact to the adjacent business, and create road safety and network operational efficiency issues if vehicles were to block back to the nearby signalised intersection of Kilmore Street with Manchester Street.  Additional pedestrian safety implications could be created by passengers waiting for a bus at potentially busy driveway.

Implementation

7.12    Implementation dependencies - not applicable.

7.13    Implementation timeframe - not applicable.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.14    The advantages of this option include:

·   Does not remove any on-street parking.

7.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Refer to section 7.10 and 7.11.

·   Lack of adherence to the recommended bus stop length does not provide the potential to improve passenger accessibility, or provide improvements to the operational performance of the bus line(s) that use the bus stop.

·   It does not take advantage of other work public transport work scheduled to improve passenger waiting facilities at the time of writing.

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.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee:

1.         Revoke all existing parking and stopping restrictions on the southern side of Gloucester Street commencing at a point 96 metres east of its intersection with Montreal Street and extending in an easterly direction for a distance of 98 metres.

2.         Approve that the parking of vehicles be limited to a maximum period of 120 minutes and controlled by Parking Meters (including Pay and Display machines or any approved payment process) on the southern side of Gloucester Street commencing at a point 96 metres east of its intersection with Montreal Street and extending in an easterly direction for a distance of 41 metres.  This restriction is to apply Monday through Sunday, 9:00am through 6:00pm.

3.         Approve that parking be restricted to motorcycles only on the southern side of Gloucester Street commencing at a point 146 metres west of its intersection with Durham Street North and extending in a westerly direction for a distance of 3.0 metres. This restriction is to apply at any time and restricted to 90° angle parking.

4.         Approve that the parking of vehicles be limited to a maximum period of 120 minutes and controlled by Parking Meters (including Pay and Display machines or any approved payment process) on the southern side of Gloucester Street commencing at a point 157 metres east of its intersection with Montreal Street and extending in an easterly direction for a distance of 37 metres.  This restriction is to apply Monday through Sunday, 9:00am through 6:00pm.

 

 

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: 10.0.2 Promote modal shift: Decrease the percentage share of car trips

4.1.2   Activity: Parking

·     Level of Service: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Install a Motorcycle Park (preferred option)

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Provide parking for motorcycles in an area that will otherwise not be used or be illegally parked by a vehicle.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     The space is too small for a car to park. There are therefore no advantages with this option.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       There have been a number of redevelopments on the sites along Gloucester Street and as part of the redevelopment, the accesses to the properties have changed. There is now an area between the accesses to 70 Gloucester Street and 78 Gloucester Street that is about 5 metres wide. This is effectively only a 3 metre wide parking area as vehicles need to be parked at least 1 metre away from the driveways.

 


 

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

Option Description

Install a Motorcycle Park outside 70 Gloucester Street as shown on Attachment A. 6.2        The option would theoretically not be removing any parking spaces as the area is too small to be marked as a parking space for cars. The area is located between two vehicle accesses.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       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

6.5       No consultation with the community has been undertaken as there is no removal of existing parking.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

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

6.9       Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.10    Part 1, Clause 5 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008 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    Not applicable.

Implementation

6.14    Implementation dependencies – Parking Restrictions Subcommittee’s approval.

6.15    Implementation timeframe – as soon as possible following approval by this Committee.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.16    The advantages of this option include:

·   Provide parking for motorcycles in an area that will otherwise not be used or be illegally parked by a vehicle.
