             Mr and Mrs Barber also raised concerns regarding whether under the District Plan the trees are planted within a Reserve or a Legal Road, whether the status and protection still applied if they were planted in the middle of a legal roadway and the requirement for neighbours to apply and pay for a resource consent for trees planted in a legal road.

             The Board requested that staff provide appropriate advice regarding who is responsible for the costs regarding resource consent applications and tree removal when the trees are planted on what is designated a legal road.

Community Board Resolved FWHB/2018/00093

Part B

The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board decided to:

1.         Request that staff provide an options report back to the Board regarding the Pasadena Reserve by the end of November 2018 that includes:

8.        Wooldridge Road Proposed No Stopping Restrictions and Flush Median

Reference:

18/905060

Presenter(s):

Steve Dejong; Traffic Engineer

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board to approve the installation of 'no stopping' restrictions and a flush median on Wooldridge Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated in response to requests from the community for Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board to install no stopping lines on Wooldridge Road.

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.

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

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board:

1.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at any time on the west side of Wooldridge Road commencing at its intersection with Wairakei Road and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of 450 metres.

2.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at any time on the east side of Wooldridge Road commencing at its intersection with Wairakei Road and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of 165 metres.

3.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at any time on the east side of Wooldridge Road commencing at a point 227 metres from its intersection with Wairakei Road and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of 76 metres.

4.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at any time on the east side of Wooldridge Road commencing at a point 369 metres from its intersection with Wairakei Road and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of 42 metres.

5.         Approve that any previous resolutions pertaining to traffic controls made pursuant to any bylaw to the extent that they are in conflict with the traffic controls described in this report are revoked.

6.         Approve that these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place.

 

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 and Flush Median (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 intersections and entrance ways and pedestrian crossing points.

·     Improves road alignment.

·     Improves the ability and safety for pedestrians to cross the road.

·     Provides the minimum required lane width.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes parking.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Council have received numerous complaints from users of Wooldridge Road. These complaints range from concerns that people park too close to the intersections and pedestrian crossing islands, to blocking sight lines to exiting vehicles and crossing pedestrians. Further concerns have been raised regarding larger through-traffic needing to cross the centre line because of the vehicles parked along the side of the road every day.

5.2       Staff have investigated and verified these complaints, also identifying that parking discipline was very poor and that motorists were parking without consideration to other road users. To immediately prevent parking across the front of the existing southern-most pedestrian island, vertical edge marker posts were installed along the edge of the road opposite the crossing point.  

5.3       Visibility is limited to crossing pedestrians and motorists exiting businesses by all day parking.  This encourages exiting drivers to nose out into the carriageway for better visibility.  The traffic lanes are narrow and there is little space for motorists to take evasive action to avoid any vehicle that pulls out unexpectedly.

5.4       There have been two reported crashes along this section of Wooldridge Road in the last five years and four within the last eight years.  All the recorded crashes were located at driveways, with three directly outside Tait Electronics frontage.

5.5       The recent upgrade to Russley Road has banned the right turn from Wairakei Road onto Russley Road, which has resulted in more traffic using Wooldridge Road. Traffic from the Sheffield Crescent and surrounding business park wanting to head north now has to use either Stanleys Road or Wooldridge Road to access Russley Road via Harewood Road.

5.6       Wooldridge Road is designated as a ’Collector’ road within the Christchurch District Plan. The land to the north of Tait Electronics site has been rezoned as ‘Business Park’. The design of Wooldridge Road needs to support its collector function, something it is currently unable to do effectively due to the current road alignment and restricted traffic lanes as a result of the kerb side parking.

5.7       There is an existing agreement between Tait Electronics and Canterbury Hockey which permits Canterbury Hockey members to use the Tait car park on the weekend and evenings during sports fixtures.  The Tait car park, which has over 500 parking spaces, is currently underutilised by Canterbury Hockey members during these times, with patrons choosing to park as close to the sports fields as possible.

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

Option Description

6.1       The proposed no stopping restrictions and flush median design for Wooldridge Road is consistent with its designated ‘Collector’ function and will provide the required lane widths for traffic to move along the road without having to cross into the opposing lane.

6.2       No stopping restrictions will provide the required ‘safe sight stopping distances’ for a motorist to be able to react in time to a pedestrian stepping onto the road at a crossing point or a vehicle pulling out at an intersection or driveway. These improved sight lines will result in a reduction in the number of recorded driveway crashes.

6.3       The proposed flush median will provide space for a vehicle to pull out of the traffic flow to wait to enter a driveway or side road. Following vehicles will be provided with sufficient road width to pass the waiting vehicle, improving the operation of Wooldridge Road.

6.4       A secondary function of a flush median, as recognised within the Transport Agency’s Pedestrian Planning and Design Guide, is to provide waiting areas for pedestrians in the lee of the pedestrian island. Where there is a series of pedestrian Islands, as is the case with Wooldridge Road, the ‘Guide’ recommends linking the islands together with a continuous flush median.

6.5       During Saturday sports fixtures, larger numbers of pedestrians cross from the west side of Wooldridge Road to the hockey fields located on the east side of Woolridge Road. The proposed flush median between the existing pedestrian Islands will permit the pedestrian to cross one lane at a time, improving pedestrian safety.

Significance

6.6       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 consultation with the owner and occupier of any property likely to be injuriously affected by the option.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.7       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

6.8       Affected property owners and residents were advised of the recommended option by mail on 4 September 2018, with a letter and plan explaining the proposal.

6.9       Staff received six responses in total. Three supported the proposal and two opposed the proposal. One response did not indicate either support or opposition.

6.10    Those indicating opposition to the proposal did so on the grounds that it removed parking. Those who indicated support for the proposal did so because they were concerned for the safety of road users.

6.11    The Team Leader Parking Compliance supports the installation of no stopping and Flush median.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.13    Cost of Implementation - $9,000.00 for the installation road marking, plus $750 for consultation and the preparation of this report

6.14    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

6.15    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs are covered under the area maintenance contract and impact on the asset will be minimal.

Legal Implications

6.16    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.

6.17    Authority from the Council to exercise the delegations is 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.  The list of delegations for staff includes non-regulatory road markings, such as flush medians. 

6.18    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         

6.19    There are no risks associated with this option

Implementation

6.20    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

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

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.22    The advantages of this option include:

·   Reduces the risk of a crash by improving sightlines at entrance ways, intersections and pedestrian crossing points.

·   Improves road alignment.

·   Improves the ability and safety for pedestrians to cross the road.

·   Provides the minimum required lane width.

6.23    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Removes car parking.

7.   Option 2 - Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Make no changes on Wooldridge Road. 

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

7.4       This option is inconsistent with community requests for safety improvement to Wooldridge Road.

7.5       See 6.8 to 6.11 above

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation - $750 for consultation and the preparation of this report

7.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - $0

7.9       Funding source – Existing staff budgets.

Legal Implications

7.10    There is not a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this option.

Risks and Mitigations

7.11    There are no risks associated with this option.

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:

·   It has no impact on kerbside parking.

7.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   It does not address the restricted sightlines at drive ways, pedestrian crossing points and intersections along Wooldridge Road and therefore the safety risk is not dealt with.

·   Traffic lanes will remain under width requiring larger vehicles to have to cross the centre line into the path of oncoming traffic.

·   Recorded crashes along this section of Wooldridge Road are likely to increase due to increased traffic volumes and development intensity.

6.         That these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place.

 

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 signalised pedestrian crossing (preferred option)

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Supports school safety by providing a controlled pedestrian crossing point on Papanui Road

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes two car parking spaces.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Papanui Road is classified as a ‘minor arterial’ road within the Christchurch City Plan. For most of the day Papanui Road operates as a two lane road, however in morning peak there are two south bound lanes, the east most lane operating as a bus lane from 7am until 9am every week day.

5.2       Currently located on Papanui Road just north of Chapter Street is a pedestrian refuge island, which is outside St Andrews College. Pedestrians do not have priority at a crossing island and must wait for a gap in the traffic flow to cross the road. 

5.3       Pedestrian refuge islands work well on lower volume roads with lower volumes of pedestrians. They allow the pedestrian to cross one lane at a time, waiting on the island refuge to cross the next lane.  The onus is on the pedestrian to wait for an appropriate gap.

5.4       If traffic volumes are high it is harder for pedestrians to find a gap in the traffic to cross to the island. When pedestrian volumes are higher there is often insufficient room on a refuge island for the number of pedestrians wanting to cross the road; this is the case on Papanui Road, outside St Andrews College.

5.5       Staff have assessed a number of candidate sites for signalised pedestrian crossings to support school safety in 2017.  Papanui Road is the highest priority site. 

5.6       Pedestrian numbers peak at 90 per hour at 8am in the morning along with the average morning traffic peak at 1,657 vehicles per hour which is associated with the start of the St Andrews College School day. The same scenario is repeated every afternoon with pedestrian numbers peaking at 110 per hour at 3pm along with the afternoon average traffic peak at 1,698 vehicles per hour.

5.7       With the above numbers of pedestrians and traffic volumes recorded on Papanui Road outside St Andrews College, the morning peak is more concerning because the bus lane is in operation at this time. Pedestrians crossing two lanes of traffic unassisted is never good because often they cannot see vehicles in the far lane even if a vehicle in the closest lane slows for them to cross, the very vehicle slowing for them blocks their view of vehicles approaching in the far lane.

 

 

6.   Option 1 - Install Signalised pedestrian Crossing (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       This option removes the existing pedestrian refuge island on Papanui Road and replaces it with pedestrian signals in the same location. The existing location is on an identified pedestrian desire line to St Andrews College.

6.2       The proposed pedestrian signals, when called will require traffic to stop and give pedestrians their own dedicated phase to cross Papanui Road, improving safety for pedestrians in this location.

6.3       The pedestrian signals will offer the added benefit to side road traffic wanting to exit Chapter Street and Normans Road. When the signals are called in the morning and evening peak by pedestrians, traffic on Papanui Road will stop providing a gap in the Papanui Road traffic flow providing side road traffic with more opportunities to exit.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.5       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

6.6       Affected property owners and residents were advised of the recommended option by letter email and in one case a personal visit.

6.7       The resident of number 3 Chapter Street was visited and given a plan of the proposal, which was discussed with her.  The resident does not support this option, stating that traffic islands narrowed the roads making them dangerous and that the proposed signals would be in the wrong place.  The resident was concerned the signalised crossing is not in the correct place and in her view a better location would be further south on Papanui Road. She did not indicate any opposition to the extending of the no stopping lines on the Papanui Road frontage of her property.

6.8       The owner of the properties situated at 326 and 330 Papanui Road was sent a letter and a plan explaining the proposal. They have not responded however there are no changes proposed to the road frontage directly outside their properties, other than replacing the missing bus stop box that the letter informed them of also.

6.9       St Andrews College was informed of the proposal via an email with an attached plan. The General Manager David Evans Responded on behalf of the College, stating: ”On behalf of the College, I advise that we are very supportive of the proposal to upgrade the Pedestrian Crossing facilities on Papanui Road, outside St Andrew’s College by installing a Pedestrian Crossing with Signals. This will significantly improve the safety of people crossing the road. At present we have been so concerned about our students crossing the road and using the Crossing Island that we have maintained adult supervision at peak times in the morning and afternoon to make it safer. We very much look forward to the implementation of this proposal and the safety improvements that will come with it. Thank you. Kind Regards, David
