3.   Key Points

3.1       The 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)

3.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - As shown on Attachments A, B, C, D and E (preferred options)

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing

3.3       These options address issues raised by the community, reduce the chance of a crash and optimise use of existing kerbside parking, with a minimal impact on surrounding residents and businesses.

 


 

4.   Option 1 - Install Parking Restrictions (preferred)

 

Grove Road and Hazeldean Road– Attachment A

Summary

1.1.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Improves accessibility for long heavy goods vehicles into and out of a commercial loading/unloading yard.

·     Reduces chance of a long heavy vehicle not being able to perform a manoeuvre and blocking the street until a parked vehicle is relocated.

1.1.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes some kerbside parking

Context / Background

4.1       The purpose of the no stopping restriction is to remove parked vehicles from the typical turn path of long heavy goods vehicle into and out of a commercial property (Humes Yard), with frontages on Hazeldean Road and Grove Road.

4.2       Council have received anecdotal reports from the public, of longer heavy vehicles having difficulty entering and existing the subject yard due to kerbside parked vehicles. One incident required a parked car to be towed to allow a vehicle to exit.

4.3       The Little River Major Cycle Route (MCR) has recently been completed along Grove Road. To accommodate an off street cycle way in both directions, the kerb to kerb carriageway width has been reduced. The reduction in kerb width has created the heavy vehicle accessibility issue on Grove Road.

4.4       Hazeldean Road and Grove Road are both classified as local roads in an area that is defined as; Industrial General (IG) and Commercial Office (CO) in the Christchurch City Council District Plan.

4.5       The recent MCR installation has reduced kerb to kerb width from about 12m to about 9m. New Road Standards Appendix 8.10.3 in the CCC District Plan specifies a minimum roadway width of 11m for a local road in an industrial area.

4.6       The proposal removes five existing kerbside spaces in an area with a high parking demand generated by a variety of commercial activities in the Addington area.

4.7       The five parking spaces will be displaced several blocks away in an area that has a heavy demand for kerbside parking.

4.8       The proposal mitigates some traffic effects created by the MCR, by creating enough space for a heavy vehicle to complete a manoeuvre out of and into the site. It is recommended to remove parking in an area with heavy demand to allow heavy goods vehicle accessibility as originally intended for this section of Grove Road.

Community Views and Preferences

4.9       Affected property owners and operators were advised of the recommended option. The affected property operator and owner supports the proposal.

 

 

 

 

Major Aitken Drive– Attachment B

Summary

4.10    The advantages of this option include:

·     Reduces chance of vehicles crossing centre line where forward visibility is limited, therefore reducing chance of a head on crash.

4.11    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes some kerbside parking.

Context / Background

4.12    The purpose of the no stopping restriction is to reduce chance of a vehicle crossing the centre line where there is restricted forward visibility due to a crest in the road.

4.13    Bus route 17 has recently been rerouted along Major Aitken Drive and Kenmure Drive. Larger vehicles such as buses will encroach over the centre line if vehicles are parked on approach to the road crest. This proposal reduces the risk of a head on crash.

4.14    The proposal removes on street parking. Parking demand in this area is low and there is adequate parking supply in the immediate area.

4.15    Major Aitken Drive is local road surrounded by residential properties and has an estimated average daily traffic flow of around 750-1,000 vehicles per day.

4.16    The subject section of Major Aitken Drive has an assessed road safety risk of low, based on the NZTA Kiwi Rap methodology.

4.17    The rerouting of a bus route along Major Aitken Drive increases the risk of a crash. The proposal will maintain existing crash risk.

Community Views and Preferences

4.18    Affected property owners and residents were advised of the recommended option by post, no objections were received.

 

Hoon Hay Road – Attachment C

Summary

4.19    The advantages of this option include:

·     Allows for short term parking such as drop off and pick up before and after school, improving operational efficiency and safety in the area.

4.20    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     No known disadvantages

Context Background

4.21    A Council parking enforcement officer alerted operation staff to the inconsistent short term parking restrictions outside a school and the problems enforcing them due to lack of signage.

4.22    The proposed P3 restriction allows vehicles to park for a maximum period of three minutes and will apply from 8:15am to 9:15am and from 2:30pm to 3:30pm on School Days only. The restriction aims to provide high turnover short term parking, allowing school children to be dropped off and walked to the school gate.

4.23    The proposed P3 parking restriction replaces existing P5 Loading Zones. A P3 restriction is better suited to a school frontage that has a high demand for parking to drop off and walk students to school gate. Traffic Operations experience has found that P5 restrictions are often not adhered to, as occupants of parked vehicles tend to enter the school and stay for longer than the expected five minutes.

Community Views and Preferences

4.24    The school principal and board of trustees have been advised of the proposal. The proposal has no effect on any other residential properties.

Spencer and Poulson St– Attachment D

Summary

4.25    The advantages of this option include:

·     Allows for short term parking such as drop off and pick ups before and after school, improving operational efficiency and safety in the area

·     Improves visibility between pedestrian and vehicles

4.26    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes some kerb side parking spaces

Context Background

4.27    Council staff met representatives from Sacred Heart School including members of the school patrol to discuss traffic issues experienced around the start and finish of the school day.

4.28    The proposal shown on Attachment D, is a reflection of measures discussed to improve safety and general traffic management around the school.

4.29    The proposed restrictions remove P120 (11am to 3pm) kerbside parking spaces and unrestricted kerbside parking. The P3 parking restriction is for a short time before and after school and only on school days, all other times there are no parking restrictions.

4.30    There is limited kerbside parking available on Spencer Street and the surrounding area within a five minute walk from the school for parents who wish to park for longer periods of time. The proposed restriction optimises the kerbside space available for short stay parking, allowing children to be dropped off and walked to school gate. The proposal helps overall traffic management and safety around the school.

4.31    The proposed no stopping restrictions remove kerbside parking along residential property frontages.

4.32    A reasonable level of kerbside parking is still available outside one residential property. The other property loses all frontage on street parking. To mitigate the adverse effect this restriction was changed to only apply from 8:15am to 9:15 am and 2:30pm to 3:30pm on school days.

4.33    Spencer Street is local road surrounded by residential properties and has an average daily traffic flow of 1,650 vehicles per day. Approximately 150 vehicle per hour during morning and afternoon peak pedestrian activity. Other road safety features near the school include:

·        A kea crossing, patrolled in afternoon only.

·        Raised intersections (speed humps) at; Spencer/Macaulay and Spencer/Poulson

·        Speed hump outside 4 Spencer Street

4.34    Speed humps are spaced at approximately 100m intervals along Spencer Street and outside Sacred heart School. This provides a good level of traffic calming to manage vehicle speeds.

4.35    Traffic counts undertaken outside 39 Spencer Street in 2016 measured traffic speeds over a week long period. Results below:

·    Median recorded speed – 33.8km/h

·    85% speed – 41km/h

4.36    Half the recorded vehicles travelled 33.8km/h or less and 85% of vehicles travelled 41km/h or less.

4.37    Poulson Street is classified as a local road with a similar traffic volume to Spencer Street. Traffic from the surrounding arterial road network does short cut through this area.

4.38    Overall the proposal will help with parking management outside the school, reduce congestion issues at school time, improve pedestrian visibility and road safety.

Community Views and Preferences

4.39    Affected property owners/residents, including the school and church were advised of the recommended option by post. No formal responses were received. The school verbally supported the proposal.

Summary

4.40    The advantages of this option include:

·     Allows for an on street resident only park outside a property that was no off street parking available and no space to provide any off street parking.

4.41    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes one unrestricted kerb side parking space in an area with high parking demand

Context Background

4.42    The property owner at 43 Spencer Street has formally applied for a resident only parking space outside 43 Spencer Street.

4.43    Council is not required to provide on street parking where the amount of off street parking is insufficient for the number of vehicles at the property.

4.44    Council will consider installing a residents' parking area outside your property if:

·     there is no off-street parking at all on your property and

·     there is no space on the property that could be converted to off-street parking and 

·     there is no private parking within a reasonable distance that could be used and

·     there are no other traffic engineering matters that would exclude this, such as parking meters.

4.45    Property 43 Spencer Street meets the above criteria.

4.46    An existing P120 on the east side of Spencer Street from Poulson St to Fielding Street allows vehicles to park for no more than 120 minutes Monday to Friday between 11am and 3pm. This restriction aims to prevent all day parking generated from commercial activities along Lincoln Road and at Hazeldean business park.

4.47    Spencer Street and the surrounding area has a high parking demand during weekday business hours. It is reasonable to expect that a resident at 43 Spencer Street may not always be able to find an on street park within a walking distance of 5 minutes.

4.48    In this instance, as there is limited off street parking and no space on the property to convert to an off street park, the application meets the criteria for consideration.

4.49    The removal of one P120 restricted car parking space and changing to a resident only parking space is an inefficient use of the kerbside space. Only allows a resident vehicle to park their compared to any other vehicle for various periods of time.

4.50    Depending on the outcome of the draft suburban parking another possible option is to provide resident exemptions to parking restrictions, this option would allow residents with a permit to park in an existing restricted park, providing more efficient use of kerbside for all residents with a valid permit.

Community Views and Preferences

4.51    Affected property owners/residents supports the proposal.

 

Cashmere Road, Outside Cashmere Valley Reserve– Attachment E

Summary

4.52    The advantages of this option include:

·     Improve vehicle and pedestrian visibility at the marked zebra, reducing crash risk.

4.53    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes some kerbside parking

Context / Background

4.54    Pedestrian visibility at the subject zebra crossing is sometimes restricted due to parked vehicles. A member of the public has raised this issue.

4.55    No stopping restrictions as shown on Attachment E, ensure standard minimum pedestrian sight distances are met.

4.56    The minimum pedestrian sight distance can generally be described as; distance a car travels in the time it takes a pedestrian to cross from the kerb to the refuge island.

4.57    The proposal reduces the chance of a crash and improves pedestrian levels of service by enhancing visibility between vehicles and pedestrians - in an area with high pedestrian and high traffic volumes.

4.58    The proposal removes two on street parks, outside a public park and playground. Parking demand in the immediate area is high. Parking will be displaced further along Cashmere Road and within a five minute walk of the park.

4.59    Cashmere Road is a minor arterial round and bound by the Heathcote River and River Reserve to the north and residential properties to the south. Cashmere Road has an average daily traffic flow of around 20,000 vehicles per day at the subject location.

4.60    Pedestrians counts have not been undertaken at the zebra crossing, pedestrians are expected to exceed 50 in a peak hour and have a relatively higher flow throughout the day due to the reserves and playground nearby.

4.61    Risk along this corridor is assessed as medium, based on the KiwiRap methodology developed by NZTA. No further crash analysis has been undertaken.

Community Views and Preferences

4.62    Council Parks representative has been advised of the recommended option via email. No response has been received.

 

Significance

4.63    The level of significance is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report. Engagement requirements for this level of significance includes the consultation with the owner and occupier of any property likely to be injuriously affected by the option.

Impact on Mana Whenua

4.64    The proposals shown on Attachments, A, B, C, D and E 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.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

4.66    Cost of Implementation – No more than $1,500 for the installation of traffic controls, plus $3,000 for consultation and the preparation of this report.

4.67    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

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

Legal Implications

4.69    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.

4.70    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.

4.71    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

4.72    Not applicable.

Implementation

4.73    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

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

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Install a new bus stop on Kenmure Drive (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do nothing, do not install a new bus stop

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (preferred option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Improves access to public transport for the surrounding residents

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Reallocation of unrestricted on-street parking

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       In November 2018, Environment Canterbury made minor changes to Huntsbury terminus of the 17 Huntsbury / Bryndwyr bus route. In order to turn around at the end of the route, the bus now travels on a small loop around Major Aitken Drive, Kenmure Drive, and Huntsbury Ave. Attachment A shows this route and the surrounding streets.

5.2       Residents were advised of this change by Environment Canterbury. In response, a resident of the area phoned Metro (Environment Canterbury), requesting an additional bus stop on this loop, and this request was forwarded to Christchurch City Council staff. The text of the request forwarded to Council staff reads:

5.2.1   “Rang to give feedback on recent letter sent out to residents in Huntsbury. Herself and several other neighbours would like to see a bus stop put in near the Kenmure reserve. At this stage there is quite a distance to the closest stop and the road is quite steep. It would cause no inconvenience to anyone having one there.”

5.3       The nearest existing bus stop is on Huntsbury Ave near Vista Place. The Christchurch City Council Bus Stop Guidelines recommend bus stops are placed to maximise catchment area (the properties within 5 minutes walking distance, approximately 400 metres on flat ground). The current catchment of the existing bus stop does not extend as far as Kenmure Drive, and an additional bus stop on Kenmure Drive will increase access to public transport for residents of the area.

5.4       Staff assessed the location of the bus stop proposed by the resident, and assessed other possible bus stop locations in the area to see if they were any more suited for the public transport network.

5.5       The proposed location outside Kenmure Reserve, shown in Attachment B, was found to be preferable to any other locations in the area, as it has the following advantages:

·   Minimises impact on adjacent residential properties

·   Close to side streets (Milway Place and Swanton Drive) and close to a pedestrian link through Kenmure Reserve to Stonewall Place

·   On a straight section of road with a footpath

·   Central to the majority of houses in the area

6.   Option 1 – Install a bus stop outside Kenmure Reserve (preferred option)

Option Description

6.1       Install a bus stop outside Kenmure Reserve.

6.2       This bus stop includes a bus stop sign, and road markings in accordance with the Christchurch City Council Bus Stop Guidelines.

Significance

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

6.4       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consultation with adjacent property owners and occupiers.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.5       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

6.6       Adjacent properties to the proposed bus stop are specifically affected by this option due to proximity to the proposed bus stop.  One of the properties is a Council owned reserve. Owners and occupiers were informed of the proposal via letter drop on 30th November 2018. Attachment C shows the feedback received during consultation.

6.6.1   One response was received, from the owners and occupiers of 5 Kenmure Drive, in support of the proposed location.

6.6.2   No objections to the proposal were received.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.8       Cost of Implementation - $1000 for installation of road markings and signs associated with this bus stop and $750 for the preparation of this report and the associated consultation.

6.9       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – Maintenance costs are covered by existing maintenance budgets and will be minimal to the overall asset.

6.10    Funding source – Public Transport budgets

Legal Implications

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

Risks and Mitigations

6.12    There are no known risks to this option.

Implementation

6.13    Implementation dependencies  - Community Board approval

6.14    Implementation timeframe – Usually within 6 weeks of Board approval

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   Improves access to public transport to residents of the surrounding streets (including Stonewall Place, Milway Place, Kenmure Drive, Major Aitken Drive, and Swanton Drive)

6.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Reallocation of on-street parking

7.   Option 2 – Do nothing

Option Description

7.1       Do not install an additional bus stop.

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 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       This option is inconsistent with the request made for a new bus stop.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

7.5.1   Inconsistency – Christchurch City Council Bus Stop Guidelines (2009)

7.5.2   Reason for inconsistency – Bus stops too far apart and do not maximise catchment area

7.5.3   Amendment necessary – Install a bus stop in the vicinity

Financial Implications

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

7.7       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - $0

7.8       Funding source – Not applicable

Legal Implications

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

Risks and Mitigations

7.10    There are no known risks to this option.

Implementation

7.11    Implementation dependencies  - Not applicable

7.12    Implementation timeframe – Not applicable

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.13    The advantages of this option include:

·   No changes to on-street parking

7.14    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Does not reflect the desires of residents of the area for improved access to public transport via an additional bus stop.
