4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028):

4.1.1  Activity: Public Transport Infrastructure

·     Level of Service: 10.4.3.0 Improve the reliability of passenger transport journey time - 0.85

·     Level of Service: 10.4.4.0 Improve user satisfaction of public transport facilities

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Main North Road Bus Priority with Option H- Full signals at Grassmere Street with the right turn into Grassmere Street provided (preferred option)

·     Option 2 - Main North Road Bus Priority with Options A and B (as consulted on)

·     Option 3 – Alternatives assessed for Grassmere Street: Schemes E, G, and I

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1  The advantages of this option include:

·     Allows for northbound buses to travel in advance of general traffic at the Grassmere Street intersection.

·     All turns are retained at Grassmere Street and the pinch point for northbound vehicles and cyclists is reduced.

·     The northbound bus lane between Halliwell Avenue and Grassmere Street provides journey time savings of between 2-3 minutes.

·     Safety and efficiency improvements for vehicles and cyclists on Main North Road gained by removing the left turn slip lane from Northlands Mall exit and providing a left turn lane controlled by traffic signals.

·     Average travel time savings (during the evening peak and when there are queues formed in the main traffic lane) northbound between Harewood Road and Langdons Road with the bus lane are 84 seconds with both sections (Harewood to Winston and Winston to Langdons) equally contributing.

·     As well as lowering average bus travel times, bus travel times will also become more consistent with less extreme values, thus improving reliability of the public transport network.

·     Improves safety of on-road cyclists by removing parking and therefore they do not have to ride in the door opening zone.

·     Provides additional crossing opportunities and connectivity for pedestrians along the route.

 

4.3.2  The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Customers visiting shops and businesses on Main North Road between Harewood Road and Langdons Road will need to use off-street parking located behind businesses or alternative on-street parking and walk to the business they are visiting.  This will require a period of adjustment for users.

·     Delay to traffic on Main North Road to allow Grassmere Street traffic to exit under a fully signal controlled intersection.

·     Change to the new kerbline that was installed for the build out for the Major Cycleway on the west side of Main North Road.

·     Customers turning left from Northlands Mall into Main North Road will now have to wait for a green traffic signal that may create some delay to minor road traffic at peak times.

 

5.   Context/Background

Project Description

5.1       Main North Road in this location is classified as a minor arterial route and a key public transport route from the central city to the northern suburbs via Papanui Key Activity Centre.  The Papanui Road/Main North Road Corridor is one the busiest bus corridors in the City and the public transport hub outside Northlands Mall (Main North Road) is the third busiest passenger hub after Central City and Riccarton.

5.2       The Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan (CTSP) adopted in 2012 includes an action to invest in quality public transport, infrastructure and priority measures to support the recovery and future development of the public transport system.  The primary objective is to provide an attractive and efficient public transport system that ensures journey time reliability, good connectivity with other modes, and reduces the number of commuter trips by car.

5.3       Along this section of Main North Road, there are currently seven bus routes, including two core routes (higher frequency).  There can be up to 31 buses per hour travelling in a southbound direction between 8-9am and up to 29 buses per hour travelling northbound between 5-6pm.  On an average weekday in 2017, around 1520 passengers boarded bus services at bus stops on this section of the street daily (between Langdons Road and Sawyers Arms Road).

5.4       As a result of ECan’s Long Term Plan which was consulted on earlier this year, two of these services are due to change later in 2018. The 108 bus is being merged with the 28, so there will be a reduction from seven bus routes using the corridor to six. This will mean that there will be up to 25 buses (currently 31) travelling southbound per hour between 8-9am and up to 26 buses (currently 29) per hour travelling northbound between 5-6pm. Current expectations are that the changes will be implemented in October 2018, but that is subject to change.

5.5       Bus journey times on Main North Road vary from day to day making services unreliable for passengers.  Data shows that variability in journey times for northbound buses is significant and can vary from 4 to 12 minutes in the evening peak based on data provided by ECan. 

5.6       Based on these journey time surveys, there is a clear and significant deficiency in terms of the Level of Service in public transport provision along the Main North Road corridor both at peak times and at times through the day where long queues form south of Sawyers Arms Road and south of Langdons Road. This can make a public transport network less attractive for passengers particularly if they are using Northlands as a transfer point as they may miss connecting services.


5.7       The Bus Priority Project looks to address this by making journey times more reliable so people can choose to use public transport confidently in the understanding they can make their journey on time, especially in peak times when people need to get to work or get home.

 

5.8       Northbound buses are significantly delayed on this section of road during the evening peak due to congestion caused by queues blocking back from Sawyers Arms Road which can extend to Harewood Road or even further back towards Blighs Road. 

5.9      

As well as slowing bus journey times by forcing buses to queue in general traffic, it becomes difficult for buses to pull out of the bus stops as they have to partially pull out and then rely on drivers (who are often in stationary queues) to give way (typically a whole cycle of the traffic signals is required).  This is far from ideal, as cyclists (approx. 19 per hr) are then placed in a very vulnerable position.  This is because buses are then sitting across the cycle lanes until they have enough room to fully re-join the traffic lanes.

 

 

 

 

5.10    The conflicts between buses and general traffic may also exacerbate the high incidence of rear-end crashes (13 reported instances between 2011 and 2015) on this section of road.  Left turning traffic exiting Northlands Mall are taking very short gaps to re-join the traffic queue resulting in near misses with northbound traffic that are proceeding on a green signal.

Objectives

5.11    The project objectives are as follows:

•    Improve public transport reliability and travel times.

•    Propose bus priority measures (including but not limited to bus lanes) on Main North Road.

•    Papanui is identified in the CTSP as a Walkable Centre and where possible the project should strengthen the character, vibrancy and sense of place at Papanui.

Consultation

5.12    Have Your Say consultation was undertaken which asked for the public’s views on the whole Main North Road Bus Priority scheme and Options A and B for the Grassmere Street intersection. These results are provided under Option 1 (Preferred).

5.13    From the results, Option B was the preferred option for Grassmere Street which introduced full signals, however there were outstanding concerns regarding the removal of the right turn into Grassmere Street. Following the consultation, four further schemes were tested for the intersection to try and address this concern. These are outlined in this report under Section 9.

5.14    One of these (Scheme H) then became the preferred option for the Grassmere Street intersection as it had all the key features of Option B, reduced a significant pinch point for cyclists and included the right turn into Grassmere Street from Main North Road.

5.15    The schemes for Grassmere Street were compared and evaluated with a multi-criteria assessment. They were tested against the project objectives with a secondary objective of safety included, please see table below. Scheme H is proposed as the Preferred Option in this report.

 


5.16    As shown in the table, Scheme H provides the most balanced solution for all road users, including providing additional connectivity for pedestrians. Key features are explored further under section 6.

Other projects on or around this section of Main North Road, Papanui

5.17    In 2013, Council recognised that the existing bus stops and passenger shelters were inadequate and agreed to replace these facilities with new extended shelters and bus stops. The new shelters and bus stops were installed in July 2013.

5.18    To address pedestrian safety when crossing between the bus stops, Council identified a need to improve the crossing facilities at this location.  The signal controlled crossing was constructed in October 2017 and is fully operational.

5.19    Papanui is also identified as a Walkable Centre and Main North Road is a local cycle route.  The Papanui Parallel Major Cycleway, one of a network of 13 major cycleways, crosses Main North Road just north of Grassmere Street.  To support the crossing movement, a signal controlled pedestrian and cycle crossing was installed on the north side of the Grassmere Street/Main North Road intersection.  As a result of the crossing, two existing bus stops closed in January 2017, resulting in the transfer of passengers to the main bus stop location.

5.20    The area bound by Cranford Street and Grassmere Street has been approved for a change of use to residential.  The change in use can enhance regeneration as residential development will provide a range of housing options within close proximity of the Papanui and Northlands retail areas, schools and other social infrastructure. The residential area would also be close to transport infrastructure such as public transport routes, as well as the Papanui Parallel Major Cycle Route and the Christchurch Northern Corridor transport infrastructure projects that are currently under construction. There is also a collector road provided by this project linking Grassmere Street to Cranford Street.

 

6.   Option 1 – Main North Road Bus Priority with Option H- Full signals at Grassmere Street with the right turn into Grassmere Street provided (Preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install bus priority measures along Main North Road between Harewood Road and Sawyers Arms Road selecting Scheme H, at Grassmere Street (See Appendix A).  The preferred option has the following features:  

Sawyers Arms Road to Halliwell Avenue

6.2       Retain the current layout on Main North Road on the southern approach to Sawyers Arms Road.

6.3       The Major Cycleway crossing will provide an opportunity for a bus gate that will allow northbound buses to proceed ahead of general traffic. 

6.4       Introduce a northbound bus lane from Halliwell Avenue to Grassmere Street. This bus lane will operate 24 hours a day. The northbound bus lanes will be 3.2 metres wide to safely accommodate cycle movements in the lane (NZTA Cycle Network Planning Guidance) and will operate at all times.  At bus stops, the bus lane increases to 4.2 metres to allow cyclists to pass around stationary buses.

Grassmere Street intersection

6.5      

Of the two options proposed at the Grassmere Street intersection, Option B - full signals was the preferred option by the community. Numerous submissions were received requesting the reinstatement of the right turn into Grassmere Street from Main North Road.

 

6.6       Following investigations as a result of the submissions received, Scheme H was developed to incorporate the right turn into Grassmere Street from Main North Road. Scheme H key features are:

·     Full traffic signal control of the intersection including the provision of the right turn into Grassmere Street. This requires a 1m reduction to the buildout installed for the Papanui Parallel MCR which reduces the pinch point for on-road cyclists and allows a large vehicle and on-road cycle to pass the buildout together in defined lanes.

·     Retains the pedestrian crossing on the south side.  Grassmere Street is still within a Walkable Centre and pedestrians have the highest priority according to Council’s Network Management Plan so it would be positive to provide a pedestrian crossing to allow pedestrian permeability and connectivity.  An existing demand of people crossing to the south has been observed in recent counts conducted on Thursday 26th June 2018.

·     Allows for an advanced start for northbound buses, which keeps most people moving for the majority of the time and does not therefore increase congestion to the north that could affect the journey times of southbound buses.

·     Not providing a dedicated right turn phase will mean that right turners will filter through the southbound traffic flow, which will self-regulate the number of people turning right into Grassmere Street (local road) and minimise any potential rat-running.

Halliwell Avenue to Langdons Road

6.7       At the Halliwell Avenue/Main North Road/Northlands Mall intersection is it proposed to control the left turn movement out of the Mall by removing the slip lane and providing a left turn lane within the signal controlled intersection.  This will improve the operation of Main North Road and also improve safety of northbound buses and cyclists using the bus lane.

6.8       Introduce a northbound bus lane from Langdons Road to Northlands Public Transport Hub and north to the intersection with Northlands Mall and Halliwell Avenue.  This bus lane will operate 24 hours a day.

6.9       The existing southbound bus lane will be retained in this section and will continue to operate 24 hours a day.  Buses and bicycles can travel southbound from a new unmarked kerbside lane on the southbound approach to Mary Street.

6.10    New signal - controlled pedestrian crossing on Main North Road at the junction with Langdons Road outside Westpac.  This can be re-introduced following a proposed change to the lane layout on Langdons Road that now allows for a separate left turn lane.

Langdons Road to Harewood Road

6.11    Introduce a northbound bus lane from Harewood Road to Winston Avenue.  This will operate 24 hours a day.  This requires the removal of nine parking spaces on the northwest side of Main North Road.  A short-term parking space (P5) is to be introduced on Winston Avenue.

6.12    Provide a northbound bus lane from Winston Avenue to Langdons Road.  This will operate at all times.  The northbound bus stop is to be relocated to outside 23 Main North Road and be extended to allow for two buses to stop at this point.  This requires the removal of seven parking spaces on the northwest side of Main North Road.

6.13    To improve pedestrian crossing opportunities and visibility it is proposed to modify the Winston Avenue approach to Main North Road.  This will allow for enhancements including seating on the north side.  The intersection will remain as left-in/left-out. A new median island is being installed on Main North Road to self-enforce the banned right turn into and from Winston Avenue. 

6.14    Increase the operational times of the southbound bus lane to include 2pm to 6pm to assist with movements during the evening peak. The southbound bus lanes are 4.2 metres, as this allows for the parking to be provided on this side of the street outside the operating hours of the bus lane. 

6.15    Two bus stops are to be provided for southbound buses outside number 20 Main North Road. This requires the removal of six car parks on the southeast side.

7.   Significance

7.1       The level of significance of this option is Medium consistent with section 2 of this report.

7.2       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are inform and consult.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3       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

7.4       Bus passengers, businesses, pedestrians, cyclists and vehicle drivers either passing through or accessing local streets are affected by this option. Residents in the Grassmere Street area are particularly affected by the option/s for the intersection with Main North Road. The views and preferences of each of these groups are included in the summary below.

7.5       Council Have Your Say consultation was open from 24th October to Friday 17th November 2017. A link to the website was emailed to stakeholders, and approximately 1500 leaflets and submission forms were hand delivered to businesses and residents, posted to absentee landowners and stakeholders, and distributed to libraries and service centres. A separate invitation to a meeting for those in the Grassmere Street area was hand delivered and posted to residents and property owners in Grassmere, Roderick Alleyn Lane, Taunton Green and Grants Road as far as Proctor Street.

7.6       Three well attended public information events were held on:

·     Friday 27th October - Northlands Mall drop in session 2:30pm to 6:30pm

·     Wednesday 1st November - Meeting for Grassmere residents 5:30pm – 6:30pm

·     Tuesday 7th November - Public Information Event at the Papanui /Innes Board Room 

4:30pm -6:30pm

Interim feedback

7.7       Key issues raised by the 12 residents attending the Grassmere Street meeting and reflected in the submissions were:

·     Neither Option A nor B is acceptable as full access is needed.

·     Not enough access space for adjacent residents or large vehicles e.g. boats and/or trailers.

·     Other congested/narrow intersections and roads such as Mary Street are unsuitable alternatives.

·     The implications of 400 new houses planned in Cranford Basin needs to be considered.

·     Does adding more lights and /or changing the Grassmere Street intersection help buses?

·     Risk of more congestion between Sawyers Arms Road and Grassmere Street.

·     Free left turn requested out of Grassmere Street.

·     Grassmere Street residents’ concerns were not heard during the cycleway consultation.

·     Don’t think the changes to access at Grassmere Street/Main North Road intersection are justified by the cycle use.

·     Don’t necessarily need two pedestrian crossing points at Grassmere Street.

7.8       Key additional issues about the proposal raised at the two general drop in sessions and also raised in the submissions were:

·     Parking loss for businesses – general and specific.

·     Questions about access to local streets.

·     Changes to Langdon’s Road intersection and vicinity including pedestrian access.

·     Effects of the proposal on traffic and congestion, including Grassmere issues as above.


 

Feedback to the proposal

7.9      
197 submissions were received. Fifty six indicated full support for the proposal, 32 of these with no additional concerns or suggestions and the remainder with a range of suggestions to improve the proposal’s function or layout. Fifty eight indicated support with some concerns, 73 do not support and 10 made comments only (see chart below)

 

Submissions by area:

7.10    Of the businesses in Main North Road, feedback was received in opposition, or with key concerns about parking loss and turning restrictions from the owners and three businesses at 2-12, 17B and 17 C and 29 Main North Road. Businesses at 55 and 58 Main North Road support the proposal.

7.11    Of the 192 submitters providing a street address, 45 submissions were received from residents in the Grassmere Street, Taunton Green and Grants Road area and four from Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village. Three of these submitters indicated full support for the plan, 23 indicated support with concerns and 19 indicated opposition, with issues focusing on access to Grassmere Street, effects on the local road network and wider network concerns.

7.12    There were 54 submissions from approximately 20 other Papanui Streets, 10 in full support and 10 in opposition, with a range of support comments and suggestions from the remaining 34 submitters.

7.13    The rest of the submitters were divided among those from wider areas: 33 from the surrounding suburbs of Northwood, Casebrook, Redwood, Merivale and Mairehau, 49 from other Christchurch suburbs, five from four Christchurch satellite towns, and two identified from outside the region.

7.14    51 support Option A (left in left out only) including Age Concern, Go Bus and Red Bus, and 78 support Option B (signals at intersection allow all turns including right turn out, but no right turn in)

7.15    The remaining 68 submitters did not indicate a preference for A or B including the Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB), which supports whichever Grassmere option provides the most efficiency for buses. Of these, 17 submitters commented that they did not support either option A or B at Grassmere Street, including Heavy Haulage Association, Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village, Papanui High School and Grants Road Holdings and Northwood Residents Association.

Overall support comments and suggestions

7.16    Overview:  A range of support comments about the bus priority proposal and related improvements was received from over a hundred submitters. Suggestions included support for improvements in bus times and reliability and how to do this, including full time full length bus lanes, priority merging for buses and more enforcement of the bus lanes.

7.17    Cyclists and pedestrians: There was significant support for pedestrian safety, and six submitters commented that the parking loss is justified by the benefits to the proposal. Ten indicated unqualified support for cycle provision in the proposal, a further five including suggestions for improvements, and another 12 in support expressing concerns about safety for cyclists in bus lanes.  Generation Zero expressed strong support for the proposal but requested cycle safety education for cyclists.  However, two submitters including Red Bus were concerned that cyclists in the same lane as buses could reduce the efficiency of the bus service, and ten submitters opposed any improvements or priority for cyclists as part of the proposal.

7.18    Generation Zero and CDHB support the bus priority proposal with some suggestions for improvements for pedestrians and cyclists. The CDHB also supports bus shelters, and anything that improves safety for pedestrians and cyclists including a preference for separated cycle lanes. It recommends the removal of all parking except for Mobility Parking and along with Spokes suggests slowing traffic to 30kph through this section of Main North Road to reduce the risk for the range of transport modes sharing ‘such a busy, constricted space’, noting also that parking removal will help improve traffic flow. Spokes requested assurance of adequate cycle lane widths. Age Concern supports the plan, requesting no right turn out of Loftus Street on to Main North Road.

7.19    Members of the project team met a number of times with Kiwi Property representatives as owners of Northlands Shopping Centre to discuss the scheme and specifically changes to their exit onto Main North Road. Staff worked through Kiwi’s initial concerns and our understanding is that Kiwi is now more comfortable with the scheme owing to the updated modelling provided. The project team will continue working with Kiwi throughout the design process to ensure the changes are in keeping with the mall frontage.

 

Key concerns

7.20    Twenty-eight submitters commented that they considered the benefits of the proposal to buses would outweigh the negative effects of the changes, and the range of issues and suggestions raised across all submitters included parking loss for businesses, inconvenience for Grassmere Street residents, and increased congestion on local roads owing to the changed road layout and additional traffic lights, including the section between Grassmere Street and Sawyers Arms Road.  Northwood Residents Association did not support the plan, citing concerns about increased congestion and suggesting the bus interchange should be located off Main North Road.

The three main areas of submitter concern were:

7.21    Wider network implications for the efficiency of the proposal and the potential effects on the Grassmere Street intersection

7.21.1   Twenty submitters raised concerns about wider network implications, noting the Cranford Basin Regeneration needed to be taken into account in planning any changes to this section of Main North Road, and in particular the Grassmere Street intersection. Many suggested that changes to Main North Road should be delayed until this is known and the subdivision complete.

7.22    Concern about the associated effects of from Options A and B of turn bans at Grassmere Street/Main North Road including increased traffic volumes using local roads in the area and creating additional traffic on Mary Street.

7.22.1   Fifty-five submitters flagged concerns about the effects on the local road network if access to Grassmere Street is restricted further - in particular if the right turn access is lost. There was strong concern that additional traffic and congestion would overload local roads that would be used as alternative access, including Grassmere Street, Grants Road and Mary Street. It was pointed out that these roads, and in particular Mary Street, are already narrow and congested with parking. There is no access from Proctor Street and Mary Street is already under pressure as a through route. Questions were raised about access for large, heavy or emergency vehicles at the Grassmere Street intersection and via these streets.

7.23    Business and community concerns about proposed parking removal for the full time northbound bus lane and to a lesser extent about the increase of one hour to the operational southbound bus lane times.

7.23.1   Approximately forty submitters raised concerns about parking loss that would result from the implementation of the proposal - especially but not limited to the North-western side - and over half of these opposed any parking loss. There were strong links to the effects this would have on the directly affected businesses, and also the wider business area. Key comments were that provision for off-street parking does not compensate for available on-street parking.

7.24    Papanui High School supports the overall bus priority proposal with concerns that potential delays from the changed road layout and additional sets of traffic lights on Main North Road could result in traffic diverting through Sissons Drive. This could have safety implications for the school, especially at the unsignalised pedestrian crossing on Sissons Drive. The crossing issue is being addressed separately by staff.

7.25    Sixteen submitters indicated concerns about turning and associated safety issues at the Grassmere Street/Main North Road intersection, including the amount of space available for buses to merge into the northern traffic lane, the majority commenting specifically on the road space taken up by the existing cycle and pedestrian build-out.

7.26    Five submitters requested removal of parking in Mary Street outside the police station near the Main Road to reduce queue times for traffic exiting to Main North Road, and it was pointed out that it is difficult for vehicles to turn right from Haliwell Avenue into Main North Road.

7.27    Spokes commented that Option B would work better for cyclists, with some further suggestions to improve the layout.

Bus stop and passenger shelter feedback:

7.28    Initial concerns from Mobil about the proposed relocation and extension of the bus stop outside Mobil, Papanui at 23 Main North Road, were resolved following a site visit and clarification of the plans.

7.29    Two business owners on the south side of Papanui Road are concerned about the parking loss for businesses at and adjacent to 20 and 24 Main North Road. One of these submitters requested that the proposed double bus stop on the south-eastern side be moved to the other side of Loftus Street (24 A, 26 and 30 Main North Road), to allow for P15 parking outside businesses from 2- 24 Main North Road.

Other comments and suggestions

7.30    These included a request for a pedestrian island on Main North Road near Age Concern. It was questioned why Council would re-introduce the pedestrian crossing on the north side of the Langdons Road intersection after recent removal, and concern was raised about the effects of the proposal on place-making and amenity in Papanui.

7.31    There were various concerns and suggestions about the effects of proposed restrictions to turning movements and access including the intersection at Sawyers Arms Road, Langdons Road, Winston Avenue, 12 Main North Road, and questions about how to deal with traffic exiting Northlands Shopping Centre to Main North Road. There were also three requests for speed reduction through the area.

7.32    An overview table of project team response to key issues and suggestions is attached (See Appendix B).

The following changes were made as a result of consultation:

7.33    The island on Main North Road to re-enforce the turn bans into Winston Avenue, and improve safety and efficiency on Main North Road, has been amended to retain the right turn in to the car park at the rear of number 12 Main North Road.  It was not possible to re-introduce the right turn out.  This is a low demand movement and drivers can still turn left out, and then use Horner Street and Loftus Street or Mary Street to turn right out on to Main North Road.

7.34    A sign is to be provided at the Northlands Mall Exit/Halliwell Avenue/Main North Road intersection only to remind drivers turning right from the Northlands Mall to give-way to traffic exiting Halliwell Avenue.

7.35    Additional coloured surfacing has been provided between the northbound through traffic lane and the left turn exit slip lane into the Mall to highlight the presence of cyclists and buses on the road at this point where drivers are indicating to turn left into the Mall.

7.36    Modify Option B (full signalisation) at Grassmere Street/Main North Road intersection to allow the right turn into Grassmere Street, now Scheme H.  This requires partial removal of the build out on the west side of Main North Road that was installed as part of the Major Cycleway, and also introduces a shared through and left turn lane for southbound traffic as there is insufficient room for a separate through and left turn lane for southbound traffic.

7.37    Submitters have been sent a letter including a link to the full submissions and the final proposal, along with details of the community board meeting and how to request speaking rights.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.38    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

Financial Implications

7.39    Cost of Implementation: The scheme cost estimate for the project is $1,890,900 which exceeds the project budget by $823k. $410k is already provided for in the Core Public Transport Route & Facilities: Orbiter- Northwest (CPMS: 36704). The remaining shortfall as a result of the preferred option to install signals is available from Core PT Route & Facilities: North (Papanui & Belfast) (CPMS: 2274).

7.40    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – The bus lane coloured surfacing and new line marking will be included in the annual maintenance schedule. The new traffic signals hardware will need to be included in the traffic signal annual maintenance schedule.  Following the first year defects period the annual operating and maintenance costs are estimated to be between $1,500 and $3,500 per annum.

7.41    Funding source – The capital costs are included in the LTP capital programme budgets as per 7.39 above.  The operating costs in 7.40 are included in the LTP Roads and Footpaths operating budgets.

Legal Implications                               

7.42    There is not a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision.

7.43    This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit

Risks and Mitigations

7.44    There is a risk that the budget may be exceeded caused by the cost of works exceeding the cost estimate.  This may result in the scheme not being able to be delivered if not properly mitigated. Mitigation measures are to monitor this through detailed design and ensure all opportunities to reduce costs are considered. A tender will not be accepted unless the project falls within the approved budget. The residual rating of the risk after the below treatment(s) is implemented will be Medium.

Implementation

7.45    Implementation dependencies - For this work to take place consideration to Northlands Mall’s trading hours will have to be undertaken to ensure the least disruption as possible.

7.46    Implementation timeframe – Construction is proposed to commence mid-2019 and last for approximately 4 months although this will be confirmed at tender.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.47    The advantages of this option include:

·     Allows for northbound buses to travel in advance of general traffic at the Grassmere Street intersection.

·     All turns are retained at Grassmere Street and the pinch point for northbound vehicles and cyclists is reduced.

·     The northbound bus lane between Halliwell Avenue and Grassmere Street provides journey time savings of between 2-3 minutes.

·     Safety and efficiency improvements for vehicles and cyclists on Main North Road gained by removing the left turn slip lane from Northlands Mall exit and providing a left turn lane controlled by traffic signals

·     Average travel time savings (during the evening peak and when there are queues formed in the main traffic lane) northbound between Harewood Road and Langdons Road with the bus lane are 84 seconds with both sections (Harewood to Winston and Winston to Langdons) equally contributing.

·     Improves safety of on-road cyclists by removing parking and therefore they do not have to ride in the door opening zone.

·     As well lowering average bus travel times, bus travel times will also become more consistent with less extreme values, thus improving reliability of the public transport network.

7.48    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Customers visiting shops and businesses on Main North Road between Harewood Road and Langdons Road will need to use off-street parking located behind businesses or alternative on-street parking and walk to the business they are visiting.  This will require a period of adjustment for users.

·     Delay to traffic on Main North Road to allow Grassmere Street traffic to exit under a fully signal controlled intersection.

·     Change to the new kerbline that was installed for the build out for the Major Cycleway on the west side of Main North Road.

·     Customers turning left from Northlands Mall into Main North Road will now have to wait for a green traffic signal that may create some delay to minor road traffic at peak times.

8.   Option 2 - Main North Road Bus Priority with Options A & B at Grassmere Street (as consulted on).

Option Description

8.1       These options were the same as Option 1 except for the Grassmere Street intersection where two options Option A: left in, left out and Option B: full traffic signals were proposed for the community to comment on.

8.2       In both options A and B the right turn into Grassmere Street is restricted.


Option A

 

8.3       Key features of Option A were:

·     Bus journey times in either direction were unaffected.

·     Vehicle journey times on Main North Road in either direction were unaffected

·     Drivers wanting to turn right out of Grassmere Street would be unable to do so and will need to use Mary Street instead.

·     Drivers wanting to turn right into Grassmere Street would be unable to do so and would need to use Mary Street instead.

·     No changes to parking with this option.

·     Lower cost option.

 


 


Option B

 

8.4       Key features of Option B were:

·     Traffic lights would allow for drivers to turn right out of Grassmere Street. This would hold the general traffic and buses would share the general traffic lane.

·     Left turn lane into Grassmere Street and to allow for this the south side car parking would be reduced from seven to two spaces.

·     Grassmere Street traffic could turn right on a short green signal

·     Drivers wanting to turn right into Grassmere Street would be unable to do so and would need to use Mary Street instead.

·     Higher cost option.

Significance

8.5       The level of significance of these options are consistent with section 2 of this report.

Impact on Mana Whenua

8.6       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.

8.7       This is consistent with Option 1.

Community Views and Preferences

8.8       These are consistent with the views and preferences shown above in 7.4.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

8.9       This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

Financial Implications

8.10    Cost of Implementation – Option A was estimated to cost $1,359,900 and Option B estimated to cost $1,737,100 to construct. In terms of available budget these options are consistent with section 7.39 above.

8.11    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – as per 7.40

8.12    Funding source – as per 7.41

Legal Implications

8.13    There is not a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision.

8.14    This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit

Risks and Mitigations

8.15    The risks and mitigations are consistent with 7.44 above.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

8.16    Both Options A and B have the same wider scheme advantages and disadvantages as Option 1. The advantages and disadvantages of the two options for the Grassmere Street intersection are listed below.

8.17    The advantages of Option A are:

·     Option A has the best journey time benefits for buses

·     Buses are able to jump ahead of general traffic.

8.18    The disadvantages of Option A are:

·     Turning movements are restricted at Grassmere Street- residents are unable to turn right into Grassmere Street from Main North Road and unable to turn right out of Grassmere Street onto Main North Road.

8.19    The advantages of Option B are:

·     Residents of Grassmere Street will be able to turn right out of Grassmere Street and head north.

·     Buses are able to jump ahead of general traffic.

·     A pedestrian crossing is provided on the south side of Grassmere Street providing better connectivity and an additional crossing point for pedestrians.

8.20    The disadvantages of Option B are:

·    Residents are unable to turn right into Grassmere Street from Main North Road.

 

9.   Option 3 – Alternatives assessed for Grassmere Street: Schemes E, G, and I 

Option Description

9.1       Following consultation and to address the concerns regarding provision of the right turn into Grassmere Street from Main North Road the project team developed and assessed four further schemes for the Grassmere Street intersection.

9.2       A Multi-criteria Analysis was undertaken by the project team, refer to 5.15 above for the table comparing the schemes.  

9.3       Due to the constrained space at the Grassmere Street intersection, adjustments to the buildout for the major cycleway had to be made to enable the space within the carriageway to provide the right turn.

 


 

Scheme E


9.4       Scheme E removes the build out on the west side of the street to allow for the right turn from Main North Road into Grassmere Street to be re-introduced.

 

·     Scheme E provides the safest solution for on road users by removing the pinch point for vehicles and cyclists travelling northbound that is created by allowing the right turn into Grassmere Street. 

·     It would also benefit northbound buses as it allows for buses to travel through the intersection on a full green in their own lane into the unmarked kerbside lane on the approach to Sawyers Arms Road intersection.

·     The dis-benefit of Scheme E is that it requires the removal of the build out that was constructed as part of the Papanui Parallel MCR to provide waiting/stacking area for cyclists clear of pedestrians. The remaining width of path between the kerb and boundary would be 3.7m. This would have an impact on safety behind the kerb with potential conflict between pedestrians and cyclists, and would impact the level of service and potential use of the cycle crossing.

 

Scheme G

9.5       Scheme G seeks to reintroduce the right turn movement from Main North Road into Grassmere Street within the existing geometry.  A minor tweak to a kerb line was investigates to see if the pinch point for northbound vehicles and bicycles could be could be removed.

 


·     Scheme G was discounted due to safety issues as the pinch point between on road cyclists and northbound traffic still exists. The pinch point is made worse by the right turn bay in the intersection. This was refined to become Option I.

Scheme I

9.6         Scheme I also looks to re-introduce the right turn from Main North Road into Grassmere Street without changing the geometry of the intersection and managing traffic through road marking and signal phasing.


·    Scheme I removes the right turn stacking area within the intersection, and removal of the pedestrian crossing on the south side of the intersection whilst leaving the build out as currently constructed.

·    This would allow the right turn into Grassmere Street to run in conjunction with the cycle crossing.  Continuity lines would be used to guide northbound vehicles and buses into their lane moving through the intersection.

·    The dis-benefits of this option are that it relies on people following the continuity lines to avoid conflicts, and it removes the pedestrian crossing where there is likely to remain a desire to cross despite the facility on the opposite side of the intersection.

Significance

9.6       The level of significance of these options are consistent with section 2 of this report.

9.7       No further engagement was required as these options were not pursued.

Impact on Mana Whenua

9.8       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

9.9       These views are consistent with the above community views and preferences above in section 7.

9.10    There would be no further consultation required for any of these options as the changes are not significant.   

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

9.11    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

Financial Implications

9.12    Cost of Implementation – These options were costed for comparison but cost was not a factor due to safety being the more important concern.

Legal Implications

9.13    There are no legal implications for these options as they were not progressed.

Risks and Mitigations

9.14    The risks and mitigations are consistent with 7.44 above. The risks of each option are detailed under the disadvantages of each option.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

9.15    These are shown above under each option and in the Multi-Criteria Analysis (see 8.6).

That the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board:

1.         Receive the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board Area Report for August/September 2018.

 

 

3.   Community Board Activities and Forward Planning

3.2       Board area Consultations/Engagement/Submission opportunities

3.2.1   Marble Wood Drive – Parking Proposal (22 Aug – 12 Sep 2018)

Marble Wood Drive is a cul-de-sac which has unrestricted on-street parking. During the week the street is fully parked for most of the day. The Council has received a number of concerns from residents and visitors to WesleyCare on the availability of parking and safety concerns related to the density of parking within a narrow street, making the street one way with little space for passing vehicles.

             A proposal to install three areas of P120 parking from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and three new no stopping areas for safety is out for consultation. A report will be presented to the Board following the consultation process and review of the feedback.

3.2.2   Dangerous and Insanitary Buildings Policy Review 2018

The Council are reviewing their Dangerous and Insanitary Buildings Policy in order to keep in step with changes to the Building Act and to ensure the policy is fit for purpose.

The policy is an important tool for the Council to ensure workers, residents and visitors to the city are protected against the risks unsafe buildings can pose.

The key changes being proposed are:

·      All provisions relating to earthquake prone buildings have been removed from the policy, as these are now exclusively provided for under the Building Act 2004.

·      We have included policy provisions covering ‘affected buildings’. These are buildings that pose a risk to building users and/or passers-by because of the proximity to a dangerous or insanitary building. Being able to manage this risk on behalf of the community means we can help make Christchurch a safer place.

·      The draft policy provides more detailed information about how the Council will identify and appropriately deal with dangerous, affected or insanitary buildings. This information is expected to be of particular interest and benefit to building owners and provides a higher level of transparency regarding the Council’s approach to this matter.

When this policy is adopted by the Council the policy will replace the Council’s current Earthquake-prone, Dangerous and Insanitary Buildings Policy of 2010.

3.3       Board Reporting

3.3.1   The Board are asked to consider topics for inclusion in Newsline, the newsletter and the report to Council.

4.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

4.1       Strengthening Community Fund Projects

4.1.1   Belfast Community Network

Belfast Community Network continue to offer different courses to the community. In October they will be running courses on babysitting where year 9 and 10 students can come and learn skills on how to become a babysitter.

4.1.2   Neighbourhood Links

The youth sports programme continues to be well supported (Hapori Takaro) and is held every Friday at Northcote School from 3 – 4pm.

“Step out and connect” is a new opportunity being offered to the Northcote community where people can come and connect. There are board games, music, free coffee and toasties. This takes place on Fridays from 10am – 12pm at Northcote School.

The Breakfast Club continues to go well and is well supported by the community with plenty of volunteers from surrounding like-minded organisations and community members. The Northcote School team are behind this project to the extent that even the Principal cooks breakfast for the community.  The Breakfast Club runs on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 8am – 9am.

4.1.3   Neighbourhood Trust

Neighbourhood Trust are at the editing stage on their webinars from Dr Kathleen Liberty’s research in partnership with Dai Henwood. Once the work is completed the Board will be provided with the details. The Papanui Youth Development Trust is doing the editing work on this project.

 

 

4.2       Other partnerships with the community and organisations

4.2.1   New Horizons Rotary

Local staff met with New Horizons Rotary on Wednesday 5 September to present on the work that the community governance team does out in the Papanui-Innes community with a specific focus on the St Albans/Mairehau area. New Horizons Rotary are keen to get more involved and work alongside likeminded community organisations.

4.2.2   Enliven Trust

Local staff have meet with the Enliven Trust and are supportive of the programmes that Enliven Trust are operating. Local staff have also identified a potential for partnerships for the benefit of the community in the future.

4.2.3   Papanui Emergency Plan

The Papanui Emergency Plan is developing well and is presently in its first draft for the community stakeholders who have now committed to the Emergency Plan. The positive aspect of this plan identified by the Papanui Stakeholder group is that should there be an emergency that did not specifically affect Papanui, the plan would still activate in order to go to the help and assistance of other affected communities.

Once this plan is completed local staff will look at developing a plan for the Shirley community.

4.3       Community Facilities (updates and future plans)

4.3.1   Redwood Plunket Rooms

Work has re-started on the facility and conversations are taking place about the lease agreement.

4.3.2   10 Shirley Road

Downers has now moved off the site and local staff will continue to look at options for the future activation of this site.

4.3.3   St Albans Community Facility

The working party met on Monday evening 10 September to discuss the build.

4.3.4   St Albans Park and Pavilion

The Community Board will open the St Albans Pavilion on 15 September at 1pm.  The public will have the opportunity to have a look around the building.   In late March 2019 the community will host a larger community event to celebrate the opening of the park.

4.3.5   280 Westminster Building

The two groups who initially showed interest in this building have now decided not to pursue this as an option.  Discussions will be ongoing with other community groups.

4.4       Infrastructure projects underway

4.4.1   Richmond Update

Staff are continuing to work on the programme for the area and develop a clear understanding of the requirements for the work that remains to be done.  Both the capital team and the maintenance team have been working closely together to ensure that stretched resources are maximised.

Maintenance work has been carried out in the area including; clearing sumps, sweeping and channel clearing. This has resulted in reduced incidences of flooding in Crystal, Randall, Petrie, Warden, Dudley and Slater Streets in recent rain events.  

The tender for the re-instatement of Randall and Petrie Streets following the LDRP project has been released and is due to close in the next week or 10 days.  Following that the team will assess responses and potential programmes.  There will be an update to the Community Board as soon as possible in the tender evaluation process.

 

Staff are currently working on the development of a regular newsletter to the community and the Board to ensure that they are well informed.

 

The follow up community meeting is set for 2 October 2018 and the Community Board will be involved in the planning for this over the next month.

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

5.1       Papanui Youth Development (PYD)

PYD along with other Papanui community stakeholders will run Whakaoho this year on 4 November at the Papanui Youth Development site. More details about this event will be circulated to the Board as we get closer to the event.

5.2       Events Report Back

5.2.1   MacFarlane Park Centre Opening

The official opening for the MacFarlane Park Centre was held on 31 August 2018 at the new centre. Although the weather wasn’t fantastic, the community came out and showed their support for the Centre’s future.
