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 – Confirm existing on-street marked and signed parking and stopping restrictions (preferred option).

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Facilitates legal enforcement of the kerbside parking.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified. 

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       A transport project was programmed for the 2016/17 Council financial year. This was to improve safety and efficiency of the Gasson /Moorhouse /Madras Intersection.

5.2       A report was submitted to the Hagley /Ferrymead Community Board meeting on 21 September 2016. This report described the intersection project, which included intersection approach and departure traffic controls, as well as parking and stopping restriction changes.

5.3       The staff recommendations were in two parts:

a)    Seeking approval from the Board for parking and stopping changes.

b)    Seeking a recommendation from the Board on traffic control changes to be approved by Council.

5.4       At a similar time, a project was planned for safety and efficiency changes at the Manchester /Moorhouse/Pilgrim intersection.  Neither project proceeded because the New Zealand Transport Agency and Council began Cluster studies that involved looking at traffic routes in their entirety, rather than isolated locations along routes.  One of the key Cluster areas was the Moorhouse Avenue and Brougham Street corridors. Until the results and recommendations of the study are known, it was deemed undesirable to continue with the Moorhouse Avenue intersection works in isolation.

5.5       Review of the 2016 report identified two errors /omissions, as follows:

a)    Any parking or stopping restriction changes should have been submitted to this committee for approval, not the Hagley /Ferrymead Community Board.

b)    The traffic control changes that were recommended to the Board for approval did not go to Council for approval as a Part A report.

5.   Context/Background

5.1       At its 25 September 2018 meeting, this committee approved two thirty minute car parking spaces on the north side of Balfour Terrace within a formed parking bay. Staff recommended that these parks were located in a safe area, and that requested car parking at the eastern end of Balfour Terrace was not safe due to potential conflict with turning heavy vehicles and pedestrians (including children) needing to use the roadway to access parked cars.

5.2       Following further requests from the adjacent business, and further analysis by staff, at its 31 October 2018 meeting, this committee approved an additional P30 car park, located at the north eastern boundary of the road termination. Staff recommended this one car park as children, in particular, could access the parked car without the possibility of conflict from vehicles reversing when turning at the roadway end.

5.3       Following this meeting, the business owner contracted a traffic engineering consultant to investigate further parking opportunities in Balfour Terrace. The consultant met with Council staff with outcome being an agreement that further car parking spaces could be provided at the eastern roadway termination, provided an area is provided for a pathway, between these car parks and the fence at the eastern road termination.  While there is very little margin between the parked cars and the required area for a turning / reversing vehicle, it was agreed that safety for children in particular, was not compromised, as they could access any parked vehicle from the provided pathway.

5.4       The consultant advised that the business would provide and install the appropriate wheel stops on the roadway to ensure parking cars do not overhang the pathway area.

Parking Restrictions Subcommittee

30 January 2019

 

 

9.        Lichfield Street at Temporary Fire Station - Proposed No Stopping

Reference:

19/20221

Presenter(s):

Michael Thomson - Transport Engineer

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee to approve the installation of No Stopping restrictions at Lichfield Street in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated in response to requests from the New Zealand Fire Service to improve sight lines for their new emergency exit from their temporary fire station on Lichfield Street, while the damaged Kilmore Street site is rebuilt.

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 Parking Restrictions Subcommittee:

1.         Approves that any previous resolutions pertaining to parking or stopping restrictions made on the south side of Lichfield Street, commencing at a point 88 metres west of its intersection with Duke Street and extending in a westerly direction for a distance of 61 metres, are revoked.

2.         Approves that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at any time on the south side of Lichfield Street, commencing at a point 88 metres west of its intersection with Duke Street and extending in a westerly direction for a distance of 61 metres.

3.         Resolves that these resolutions take effect when parking signage and/or road marking that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place (or removed in the case of revocations).

 

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 (preferred option)

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (preferred option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Improves sight distance for exiting vehicles attending an emergency

·     Provides additional road space for larger vehicles (trucks and fire tenders) turning into the VTNZ testing station and temporary Fire Station.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes three unrestricted car parking spaces.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Due to the 2010/2011 earthquake sequence the main Christchurch Fire Station on Kilmore Street was damaged. The New Zealand Fire Service advise that this site will be rebuilt and that 248 Lichfield Street will be used as a temporary Fire Station for at least two years.

5.2       The Fire Service Assistant Commander has approached Council staff to consider stopping restrictions to improve both sight distance when leaving in an emergency situation and to provide more road space for larger vehicles (fire tenders) to enter back into the site.

5.3       Immediately west of the temporary Fire Station is a VTNZ vehicle testing station. The distance between the vehicle entrances to both sites (directly opposite the intersection of Clarkson Avenue) ideally only accommodates one vehicle. Two vehicles do, from time to time, park in this smaller space. This makes vehicle access difficult into the Fire Station site.

5.4       A short distance west, another wide vehicle entrance exists. This is for access to five vehicle testing queuing lanes. The distance between this wide vehicle entrance and the VTNZ car park entrance is also short, accommodating only one vehicle. It is therefore proposed to include this area in the length of No Stopping.

5.5       When discussing this with the only directly affected business (VTNZ), the manager, while agreeing to the proposal, outlined that they have a problem of parking on their western boundary. Once again, there is only a small distance between the wide VTNZ entrance and the next business entrance to the west. This resultant space is not enough for a compliant car parking space. To discourage parking Council has painted a white triangle over this area. The VTNZ manager says parking at this point causes issues for larger trucks turning into the truck queuing lane at the testing station.

5.6       The combination of multiple vehicle entrances with short distances between, results in this report that recommends a continuous No Stopping restriction as detailed on Attachment A.
