5.     Christchurch Northern Corridor Downsteam Effects Projects

Reference:

19/824747

Presenter(s):

Andy Richards, Luke Thomas

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of the report is to:

1.1.1   Provide information to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board and Papanui-Innes Community Boards on the outcomes of the consultation and engagement process for the Christchurch Northern Corridor Downstream Effects Projects and recommend changes to the proposed design following community feedback received, and further technical work.

1.1.2   Provide information to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board and Papanui-Innes Community Boards on the outcomes of the consultation and engagement process for the Cranford to Rutland Reserve shared path connection.

1.1.3   Seek a recommendation to Council from the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board and Papanui-Innes Community Boards for the projects to proceed to detailed design and construction.

2.   Executive Summary

2.1       On 13 June 2019, Council resolved that staff should proceed with the design and consultation of the Stage 1A and 1B recommendations to mitigate the effects of the Christchurch Northern Corridor.

2.2       These transport projects proposed in this report are designed to:

·   Help mitigate the impacts of the extra traffic as a result of the Christchurch Northern Corridor; or

·   Address community concerns; and

·   Complement other related workstreams - including the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lane on the Christchurch Northern Corridor and other travel demand management (TDM) measures, such as, the proposed park & ride scheme in the Waimakariri District, investigations into the provision of express bus services and a central city parking strategy.

2.3       Christchurch City Council received more than 250 public submissions on the proposed transport projects.

2.4       As a result of this consultation procedure, the following key changes to the proposed scheme that staff are recommending include:

·   Not installing the southbound clearway on Cranford and Sherborne Street, south of Berwick Street.

·   Reinstating the left turn from Berwick Street into Cranford Street.

·   Removing the second right turning lane from Warrington Street into Barbadoes Street to provide more parking around the shops in the area.

·   Safety improvements on Canon Street and Purchas Street.

·   Introducing time restricted parking around the shopping areas.

2.5       This modified option is the preferred Option staff are presenting in this report.

 

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board and Papanui-Innes Community Board, recommends that Council:

1.         Approves the scheme design, as detailed in Attachment A, of:

a.         Main road upgrade between Innes Road And Berwick Street,

b.         Intersection upgrades and new signalised intersections,

c.         Pedestrian safety and crossing improvements,

d.         14 Speed zones,

e.         Safe cycling improvements, and

f.          Turning restrictions and intersection improvements.

2.         Approves the scheme design for the Cranford Street to Rutland Reserve shared path connection, as detailed in Attachment F.

3.         Approves the detailed traffic resolutions for all proposed changes, as noted in Attachment B.

4.         Approves the removal of the identified trees to allow implementation of the proposed scheme, a detailed in Attachment A.

5.         Approves the purchase of land parcels to complete the implementation of the scheme, as detailed in Attachment A.

6.         Notes that that Council staff will further engage with residents of streets including Mersey Street, Severn Street, Thames Street, Nancy Avenue, Kensington Avenue, Flockton Street and Francis Avenue to develop proposed traffic calming solutions for the streets.  These proposals will be reported back to the Community Board and Council for approval to proceed to detailed design and construction.

7.         Notes that that Council staff will engage with residents of McFaddens Road, Knowles Street and Weston Road to ensure the implications of any potential turning restrictions are fully understood.  These proposals will be reported back to the Community Board and Council for approval to proceed to detailed design and construction.

 

4.   Context/Background

4.1       The Christchurch Northern Corridor is due to open for use in mid-2020. The opening of the corridor is anticipated to have an effect on the transport network downstream of the Cranford/ Innes Road intersection.

4.2       The relevant Consent Order for the construction of the Christchurch Northern Corridor included a number of conditions that Christchurch City Council must affect prior to opening, to mitigate the effects of the increased traffic.  These conditions were detailed in previous reports to Council and the relevant Community Boards.

4.3       On 13 June 2019, Council resolved that staff should proceed with the design and consultation of the Stage 1A and 1B recommendations to mitigate the effects of the Christchurch Northern Corridor. The projects include:

Stage 1A – Recommendations required in order to meet the Designation conditions:

4.3.1   Major road upgrades.

4.3.2   Intersection upgrades.

4.3.3   Traffic Calming.

4.3.4   Traffic Monitoring.

Stage 1B – Recommendations to address community concerns:

4.3.5   Environmental Monitoring.

4.3.6   Speed Limit Reductions.

4.3.7   Pedestrian safety improvements.

4.3.8   Initiate safe access to school and safe cycling studies.

4.4       This report focuses on the work proposed in the St Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau areas.

4.5       The aim is to ensure any works undertaken also future proofs infrastructure options for other projects being undertaken to support travel demand management along the corridor.

Proposed Interventions

Major road and intersection upgrades

4.6       Major road upgrades are required to encourage vehicles travelling to and from the Christchurch Northern Corridor to remain on preferred vehicle routes (i.e. main roads and not local roads). Efficiency upgrades to major roads and intersections are therefore important to mitigating the effects the Christchurch Northern Corridor. These upgrades are future proofing the main road infrastructure, to ensure that future travel demand measures can be installed quickly, easily and cost effectively.

4.7       Major road upgrades aim to reallocate road space and allow for increased peak hour flows. These can be clearways, bus lanes or High Occupancy Vehicle lanes.

4.8       Prior to the preferred route being consulted with the community, a route selection study was undertaken that considered a number of potential options between the Cranford/ Innes Road intersection and Bealey Avenue.

4.9       The signalisation of intersections is undertaken to manage traffic flows and improve accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists.

4.10    Existing signalised intersections require upgrading to improve the layout legibility, safety for pedestrians, signal phasing or upgraded standards.

Turning restrictions

4.11    Rat-running traffic along local streets was a key concern raised by a number of stakeholders in this and previous community engagement processes.

4.12    Reducing vehicle flows along streets by restricting entry to that street is an effective way to reduce rat-running traffic. However, it does disrupt local resident’s daily trips.

4.13    Turning restrictions also have the advantage of increasing safety at the intersections and along the streets.  Traffic is not turning across on-coming traffic and traffic volumes along a street are reduced.

4.14    Through the engagement process feedback was received from emergency services and local residents on how potential access changes would impact the accessibility of their neighbourhoods.

Intersection interventions

4.15    A number of stakeholders raised safety concerns at intersections where major and local roads intersect.  The speed of vehicles utilising the intersections was of particular concern.

4.16    Intersection narrowing does not affect access into or out of a street however, narrowing the width of the street reduces the turning speed of vehicles as they exit from major roads onto local roads. Therefore improving safety by reducing vehicle speeds.

Traffic calming

4.17    Traffic calming is installed to slow the speeds of traffic travelling along local streets.  It also serves to discourage traffic from using local residential streets as a short cut.

4.18    Traffic calming is proposed on streets that could be impacted by an increase in traffic and for streets that have been identified as greenways.

4.19    No interventions have been proposed in this report on any specific streets.  After an option is chosen and approved by Council, a further round of engagement will be conducted in early 2020 with residents on those streets to identify the preferred types of traffic calming.

Pedestrian Improvements

4.20    Stakeholders raised pedestrian access across major roads as a concern.

4.21    Options for improvement include:

·   Upgrades to signalised intersections including red light priority for pedestrians,

·   Mid-block signalised crossings, or

·   Pedestrian refuges.

Local cycle network

4.22    A key connection to the cycle network is the Cranford to Rutland Reserve shared path connection, which will allow users of the Christchurch Northern Corridor shared path to safely continue their journey across to join onto the existing Major Cycle Route - Papanui Parallel.

4.23    A local cycle network of on-road facilities to better link residential areas to the Central City and key destinations such as the parks, schools and shopping centres. The proposed cycle network links the existing cycle facilities to the:

·   West using the Papanui Parallel,

·   East, using the shared bus and cycle lane on Hills Road.

·   South, using the one way system in the Central City via Madras Street and Barbadoes Street.

4.24    On-road cycle lanes 1.8 metres wide will be added to main road routes. Green surfacing will be used to identify and highlight potential conflict points between drivers and cyclists.

4.25    Greenways are proposed on residential streets where vehicles and cyclists will be expected to share the road. These streets can be characterised as being slow speed streets, with low traffic volumes and sharrows to indicate the need to share the space.  No specific greenways are proposed in this report. In line with potential traffic calming changes, a further round of engagement will be undertaken early in 2020 on specifically identified streets.

Slow speed zones

4.26    In addition to the above physical changes to streets, there is also the proposed creation of up to 14 Safe Speed Zones either side of Cranford Street and Sherborne Street.

4.27    Under the current proposal, a 50 km/h speed limit would be retained on Cranford Street, Sherborne Street, Innes Road, Warrington Street, Madras Street, the southern part of Forfar Street, and Barbadoes Street. These roads generally define the boundaries of the proposed Safe Speed Zones. A safer speed limit of 40km/h is proposed for most of the streets within the zones, with an extended 30km/h speed limit zone proposed around the Edgeware Village area, where there is a high concentration of active road users.

4.28    The proposed slow speed zones serve two primary functions:

·   To reduce travel speeds and reduce the risk and severity of potential crashes.

·   To signal to drivers they are entering a community area and should be more attentive for pedestrians or other road users and to reduce the temptation of rat running through local roads.

4.29    Slowing down vehicle operating speeds saves lives, with a strong link between speed and safety. Having speed limits set at the appropriate level for the conditions is one of the most important ways Council can assist people to get where they want to go safely.

4.30    While it may not seem that a 10km/h reduction in speed from 50km/h to 40km/h will have a significant bearing on safety, a large and credible body of international research indicates reducing speeds has a direct impact on reducing deaths and injuries- particularly when more vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists are involved.

4.31    The probability that the pedestrian will die or be seriously injured increases rapidly with relatively small increases in speed. The risk of a pedestrian being killed or seriously injured if struck by a car roughly doubles between an impact speed of 30km/h and 40km/h and doubles again between 40km/h and 50km/h.

4.32    The proposed safe speed zones support the objectives of the national Speed Management Guide 2016, the statutory requirements of Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017, and the overall vision of the Safer Journeys: Road Safety Strategy 2010-2020.

4.33    Council staff have engaged with key stakeholders and will ensure any concerns are addressed prior to implementation of the new speed limits. These groups include: Police, Road Transport Association, Automobile Association and the NZ Transport Agency.

Other related workstreams

4.34    Monitoring – A traffic monitoring programme has been developed in line with the requirements of the Downstream Effects Management Plan. Baseline information has already been collected. Independent expert advice is being sought to develop appropriate air, noise and vibration monitoring programmes with allowance for baseline data collection. Information will be fed back to the Community Board(s) or Council.

4.35    Healthy Streets Assessment – Staff have commissioned a Safe Access To School report and a Healthy Streets assessment. These will be reported back to the Community Board(s) and Council.

4.36    Council are working collaboratively with partners from the New Zealand Transport Agency, Waimakariri District Council and Environment Canterbury on the following suite of related workstreams.

4.37    High Occupancy Vehicle Lane

·   The New Zealand Transport Agency will install a Southbound lane for vehicles with more than one person in them on State Highway 1 (morning peak), and the Christchurch Northern Corridor to encourage car-pooling. This lane ends just before the Cranford Street roundabout.

·   A draft feasibility assessment report (Attachment C) on continuing the southbound High Occupancy Vehicle lane on Cranford Street up to Innes Road is currently under review.

·   Modelling illustrating the impacts of an extended High Occupancy Vehicle lane to Bealey Avenue has been received and is currently being reviewed.

4.38    Express Bus services:

·   Environment Canterbury has agreed to consider peak time express bus services from North Canterbury that would travel along the Christchurch Northern Corridor and Cranford Street and Sherborne Street. An outline of the impact of bus lanes along Cranford Street and Sherborne Street is provided below.

4.39    North and Southbound Peak Time Public Transport lanes on Cranford Street and Sherborne Street:

·   A report (Attachment D) was commissioned by Council to provide an assessment on the likely impacts of installing bus lanes and/or High Occupancy Vehicle lanes on Cranford Street and Sherborne Street.

·   In total an optimistic view is that 10% of trips could be by bus with approximately half that from express buses servicing the Waimakariri District. Implementing a bus lane would likely cause severe congestion and rat running in the St Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau areas. The benefits of implementing this service would unlikely justify the cost, and the increased congestion would have associated adverse road safety impacts on all road users. Greater value could be added by providing new routes utilising the corridor and providing interchange hubs for those who do not have the Central City as their origin or destination, however trials, for the latter, in Christchurch have discouraged users due to delays in waiting for connecting services.

4.40    Park and Ride facilities:

·   The Waimakariri District Council and New Zealand Transport Agency have agreed to co-fund park and ride facilities and are currently investigating suitable locations in the Waimakariri District.

·   Council have engaged a consultant to investigate the feasibility of park and ride facility near the Queen Elizabeth II Drive. It is envisaged that this analysis will be completed by the end of September.

4.41    Pricing Strategies to manage future traffic demands:

·   Following the Council resolutions, staff have developed a draft scoping paper (Attachment E) looking at options and alternatives for pricing. This is a piece of work with a medium-long horizon and is currently being progressed as part of the update to the 2020 Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan. Pricing strategies will therefore not form part of this stream of work.

·   Any pricing measure will have some level of congestion (demand) reducing impacts. However, that is not the only thing a scheme should focus on assessing. Pricing will also have varying degrees of impact on social, economic and environmental outcomes within the city raising questions about horizontal and vertical equity. These need to be well understood and considered within the context of selecting the most effective solution to achieve the stated outcomes.

Strategic Alignment

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

4.42.1 Activity: Traffic Safety and Efficiency

·     Level of Service: 10.0.1 Maintain journey reliability on strategic routes. - Peak 25m. Day 15m. Night 10m.

Decision Making Authority

4.43    These projects have components that are under the specific delegations of the Community Boards and other components that are under the delegation of the Council. Due to the nature of the physical changes associated with the project, it is impossible to separate these into specific resolutions for each Community Board and Council, as a change to a resolution may impact on a resolutions that is under the delegation of the other Community Board or Council. As a result the report has the resolutions going as a whole to the joint Community Boards who make a recommendation to Council so we avoid unexpected errors due to changes.

4.44    In relation to the specific delegations being used to approve the resolutions in this report, pursuant to clause 32 of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002, the Council had delegated the responsibilities, duties and powers under the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 to Community Boards to exercise within their communities (as defined in the Local Government Act 2002). This delegation includes Clause 7 of the Bylaw to “restrict the stopping, standing or parking of vehicles, or any class of vehicles, on any road; or…” and under Clause 21 of the Bylaw to approve shared pathways (Part D – Sub Part 1 – Community Boards, Christchurch City Council Delegations Register, 18 Dec 2018).

4.45    Overarching the above delegations, any decision by a Community Board must be consistent with any policies or standards or resolutions adopted by the Council. The resolutions in this report are consistent with Council policies and standards.

4.46    To avoid the issue of separate resolutions for each Community Board and Council to resolve, the report recommends that the Joint Community Board recommend to Council to approve the entirety of the preferred option. This will then be considered and resolved by Council.

4.47    The Council has the authority to approve all the resolutions in this report as per Attachment B under the Local Government Act 2002, so is able to resolve them after receiving the recommendation of the joint Community Boards.

Previous Decisions

4.48    On 13 June 2019, Council resolved CNCL/2019/00115 that staff should proceed with Stage 1A and Stage 1B package of works, and continue with further consultation and engagement

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

4.49    The decisions in this report are of high significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

4.50    The level of significance was determined by comparing factors relating to this decision against the criteria set out in Council's Significance and Engagement Policy.  The level of significance reflects the high numbers of people affected and the high level of community interest and involvement in the Christchurch Northern Corridor project over many years.

4.51    The community engagement outlined in this report reflects the assessment and has been developed in accordance with the Designation conditions within the Consent Order approving the Northern Arterial, the Northern Arterial Extension and the Cranford Street Upgrade and previous feedback received.

5.1       The following reasonably practicable options were considered and are assessed in this report:

·   Option 1 – A revised option that incorporates changes because of the consultation feedback. Key changes include:

-      Maintaining the existing road cross section south of Berwick Street on Cranford Street and Sherborne Street.

-      Changes to the turning restrictions at Berwick Street, Dee Street, Canon Street and Purchase Street.

-      Additional safety improvements with local and main road intersections including road narrowing and speed humps.

-      Improvements made to the local cycle network including hook turns and advanced stop boxes.

-      Inclusion of time restricted parking in commercial areas.

-      Rationalisation of on-street car parking cross the entire suite of projects.

-      Staff will undertake additional engagement with the residents of Francis Avenue and Flockton Street on potential traffic calming measures.

·   New signalised intersections at:

-      Warrington Street /Forfar Street.

-      Warrington Street/Barbadoes Street.

·   A new signalised crossing on Cranford Street at English Park with separate cycle and pedestrian facilities.

·   Turning restrictions onto local roads from Sherborne Street and Cranford Street including:

-      Purchas Street, includes pedestrian refuge.

-      Canon Street, includes pedestrian refuge.

-      Dee Street

-      Malvern Street

·   Restricting vehicle access at Forfar Street north (cul de sac) at the intersection with Warrington Street.

·   Cycle connections to the Papanui Parallel major cycleway.

·   Five new pedestrian refuges:

-      Westminster Street between Aylesford Street and Kensington Avenue.

-      Edgeware Road at Hills Road intersection.

-      Innes Road east of Kensington Avenue.

-      Forfar Street at St Albans Park.

-      Barbadoes Street at St Albans Park.

·   Upgrade of pedestrian refuges on Innes Road.

-      Madras Street/Forfar Street – Between Bealey Avenue and Warrington Street.

·   A shared use cycle path connecting the Christchurch Northern Corridor cycleway to the Papanui Parallel via Rutland Reserve (Attachment F).

·   Parking time restriction changes – Introduction of time restrictions for on-street car parking, particularly near commercial centres.

·   The below bus stop changes:

-      Bus stop outside 59 Cranford Street will move to 67 Cranford Street.

-      Bus stop outside 64 Cranford Street will move to 2 Winton Street.

-      Bus stop outside 213 Cranford Street will move to 87 Malvern Street.

-      Bus stop outside 470 Innes Road will move to 462 Innes Road.

-      Bus stop outside 526 Barbadoes Street will move to 516 Barbadoes Street.

-      Bus stop outside 135 Edgeware Road will move to 151 Edgeware Road.

-      Bus stop outside 122 Edgeware Road will move to 132 Edgeware Road.

-      Bus stop outside 182 Edgeware Road is removed, as there is a bus stop close by on Barbadoes Street.

5.2.2   Option Advantages

·   The intersection upgrades are expected to:

-        Increase pedestrian safety by providing a protected crossing movement.

-        Increase traffic efficiency by providing additional lanes for queuing and merging traffic.

·   Installation of a mid-block signalised pedestrian crossing outside English Park on Cranford Street,  and the introduction of a shared path between the Berwick Street/ Cranford Street and English Park will increase the safety of pedestrians (particularly school children) crossing Cranford Street.

·   The intersections with major roads along Cranford Street and Sherborne Street are all proposed to be upgraded to accommodate the new road layout. Traffic lights will also be installed at the intersections of Warrington Street and Forfar Street, and Warrington Street and Barbadoes Street, to improve the safety of the intersections.

·   The existing road layout on Cranford Street/ Sherborne Street is not changing between Bealey Avenue and Berwick Street, noting that improvements are to be made to the Edgeware road and Bealey Avenue intersections along this route. This enables Council to easily and cost effectively modify the road layout and provide for special vehicle lanes (High Occupancy Vehicles or Bus Lanes) if required in the future.

·   Time restricted parking will provide high turnover parking for customers and visitors in the areas of these restrictions. There is currently a reasonable level of all day worker parking, that makes it difficult for customers and visitors to have available parking in the area.

·   The 40km/h slow speed zones will:

-     Increase safety, reduce travel speeds and reduce the crash risk and severity.

-     Signal to drivers they are entering a community area and should be more attentive for pedestrians or other road users and to reduce the temptation of rat running through local roads.

·   Increased landscaping and planting in areas where cul-de-sac and turning restrictions are proposed.

·   The secondary cycle network increases connectively with the existing cycle network, including the Papanui Parallel and provide a safe cycling network. Mid-block crossings will allow safer access across Westminster Street and Innes Road.

·   The installation of the painted cycle lanes visually narrows the road width. This will assist with lowering vehicle speeds as drivers slow with narrower lanes. In residential streets sharrows will have a similar effect and this improves safety for residents and users of the streets.

·   Installation of mid-block crossings will assist pedestrians and cyclists crossing main roads.

5.2.3   Option Disadvantages

·   Parking loss is due to proposed:

-     Intersection upgrades to increase safety, capacity and merging at the intersections.

-     Installation of painted cycle lanes.

-     Installation of midblock crossing points.

-     Improved egress for busses to bus stops.

·   Loss of some foot path and berm due to road widening on Cranford Street between Innes and Berwick Street. Some tree removal along this route to accommodate the clearway. New trees will be planted in areas such as where turning restrictions have been proposed.

·   Cul-de-sac of Forfar and turning restrictions will result in some severance issues for residents who may need to travel in a slightly different direction to get to or from their destinations.

·   Some land will need to be purchased at Cranford Street/ Edgeware Road and Sherborne Street to provide an adequate footpath width.

5.3       Option 2 - Consultation Option.

5.3.1   Option Description

·   All proposed changes for option 2 are detailed in the consultation documentation (Attachments G and H).

·   Main road upgrades including:

-      Cranford Street between Innes Road and Berwick Streets – Addition of part time clearways (south bound morning peak 7am to 9am and north bound evening peak 3.30pm to 7pm).

-      Cranford Street/Sherborne Street between Berwick Street and Bealey Avenue – One lane in each direction with additional part time clearway southbound only (7am-9am), median strip, northbound cycle lane and no parking on west side of the road.

-      Warrington Street between Berwick Street and Barbadoes Street - Introduction of a painted median and two traffic islands on Berwick Street/Warrington Street from Cranford Street to Barbadoes Street.

-      Introducing a shared path on Cranford Street from Berwick Street to English Park.

·   Major Intersection upgrades on:

-      Cranford Street/Westminster Street.

-      Madras Street/Forfar Street – Between Bealey Avenue and Warrington Street.

·   A separated cycleway connecting the Christchurch Northern Corridor cycleway to the Papanui Parallel through Rutland Reserve (Attachment F).

·   The below bus stop changes:

-      Bus stop outside 59 Cranford Street will move to 67 Cranford Street.

-      Bus stop outside 64 Cranford Street will move to 2 Winton Street.

-      Bus stop outside 213 Cranford Street will move to 87 Malvern Street.

-      Bus stop outside 470 Innes Road will move to 462 Innes Road.

-      Bus stop outside 526 Barbadoes Street will move to 516 Barbadoes Street.

-      Bus stop outside 135 Edgeware Road will move to 151 Edgeware Road.

-      Bus stop outside 122 Edgeware Road will move to 132 Edgeware Road.

-      Bus stop outside 182 Edgeware Road is removed, as there is a bus stop close by on Barbadoes Street.

5.3.2   Option Advantages

·   More resilience due to greater capacity than preferred option due to the installation of a southbound clearway between Berwick Street and Bealey Avenue on Sherborne Street and Cranford Street.

·   Lower cost than preferred option to convert southbound clearway between Berwick Street and Bealey Avenue on Sherborne Street and Cranford Street to a High Occupancy Vehicle or Bus Lane.

·   Less cost than preferred option.

5.3.3   Option Disadvantages

·   This option has more parking loss than the preferred option.

·   This option does not take account of the feedback from submitters.

Analysis Criteria

5.4       Although Christchurch City Council is required to carry out this work under a designation condition, safety and impact to community and local business and were given the highest priority in deciding the preferred option.

Options Considerations

5.5       Considering the priority given to safety and impact to community and local businesses, the preferred option incorporates changes as a result of the consultation feedback. These changes can be summarised as:

5.5.1   General Changes

·   Not installing clearways south of Berwick Street:

-      South of Berwick Street it is proposed to maintain the existing road layout. However, improvements are still proposed for pedestrian accessibility, landscaping and to the intersections at Edgeware Road and Bealey Avenue.

·   Warrington Street:

-      Raised median reduced in length to allow access to 2 Warrington Street.

-      Flush median reduced in length to allow retention of parking.

·   Berwick Street:

-      Raised median narrowed to allow retention of parking.

·   Warrington Street / Barbadoes Street Intersection:

-      Dedicated right turn lanes into Barbadoes Street have been reduced from two to one.

5.5.2   Safety Improvements

·   Canon Street intersection with Barbadoes Street – road narrowing and a raised table added on either side of Barbadoes Street.

·   Purchas Street intersection with Barbadoes Street – road narrowing and a raised table added on either side of Barbadoes Street.

·   Canon Street intersection with Madras Street– road narrowing and a raised table added on either side of Madras Street.

·   Purchase Street intersection with Madras Street– road narrowing and a raised table added on either side of Madras Street.

·   Thames Street intersection with Innes Road – road narrowing and a raised table added on either side of Innes Road.

·   A raised table added on Oxley Avenue at its intersection with Cranford Street.

5.5.3   Cycle Improvement

·   Hook Turn Boxes added at:

-      Cranford Street / Westminster Street intersection – provided for all right turn movements.

-      Cranford Street / Edgeware Street / Sherborne Street intersection – provided for all right turn movements.

·   Advanced Stop Boxes added at:

-      Cranford Street / Westminster Street intersection – north and south approach.

-      Berwick Street / Cranford Street intersection – north approach.

-      Cranford Street / Edgeware Street / Sherborne Street – north and south approach.

·   Cycle crossings:

-      The proposed pedestrian crossing at English Park will be changed to include a cycle crossing, this will allow cyclists travelling from English Park, or the Papanui Parallel, to cross Cranford Street and then re-join the shared southbound lane on Cranford Street.

-      The waiting area for cyclists and pedestrians at the Cranford Street/ Berwick Street intersection will be swapped around to reduce conflict between pedestrians and cyclists.

-      Cycle crossing at Warrington Street / Forfar Street intersection realigned to allow cycle movements in both directions.

5.5.4   Neighbourhood Vehicle Access

·   Dee Street has changed to left in left out from left in only.

·   Purchase Street has been changed to left in on the western side of Cranford Street.

·   Canon Street has been changed to left in on the western side of Cranford Street.

·   Left turn from Berwick Street to Cranford Street reinstated.

5.5.5   Parking Added and Removed and Time Restricted Parking

·   Following consultation, parking has been added or reinstated and in some cases removed or changed to time restricted parking compared to the preferred scheme.

·   For a full rationale of these changes refer to Attachment I of this report.

6.   Community Views and Preferences

6.1       Consultation on the projects planned to mitigate the effects of the Christchurch Northern Corridor was open for four weeks, closing on Monday 19 August 2019.

6.2       We delivered the consultation document to approximately 9000 properties and posted the document to 2244 absentee landowners.  An email was also sent to key stakeholders and submitters who had been involved in the two previous engagements.

6.3       Information was available on the Have Your Say website for online submissions, we ran a Newsline article and several Facebook posts.

6.4       Two drop in sessions were held and approximately 20 people attended each session with good conversations, information shared as well as many questions answered by the project team.

6.5       The project team also met with local businesses, schools and residents on request where further discussions on site were requested or required.

6.6       At the close of consultation we received 253 submissions.  A full analysis of these submissions refer to Attachment J.

6.7       The main themes that were raised from the feedback were:

6.7.1   Impact on the ability for local residents to access their properties and travel through their community easily.

6.7.2   Parking removal on Sherborne Street.

6.7.3   Forfar Street/Warrington Street intersection changes and the associated impacts on other streets.

6.7.4   Removal of the left turn from Berwick Street into Cranford Street.

6.7.5   Turning restrictions.

6.7.6   Cyclist safety.

6.7.7   Parking loss in several areas.

6.7.8   Extending the existing 30 km/h speed zone.

6.7.9   Safety concerns at the Purchas Street – Madras Street intersection.

6.8       Staff will be using the feedback received as the basis for further engagement with directly affected residents in the streets proposed for traffic calming.  This will occur early in 2020.

6.9       Changes as a result of consultation are captured in the Section 5.2 – Preferred Option.

6.10    All submitters have been provided with links to the consultation feedback and analysis, staff report, and details of the upcoming Community Board and Council meetings.

6.11    The Media and Communication report is detailed in attachment K.

7.   Legal Implications

7.1       There is no legal impact for the majority of works set out in this report.  Legal implications will only arise if the proposed works are inconsistent with the designation and its associated conditions.

7.2       Options 1 and 2 of this report incorporate the Stage 1 recommendations set out in the Downstream Effects Management Plan Report and Recommendations prepared by Dr Shane Turner (Dr Turner’s report).  The 13 June 2019 report set out a number of legal and reputational risks for Council if it failed to comply with Condition 26 of the Notice of Requirement (i.e. if it did not comply with the Stage 1 recommendations set in Dr Turner’s report).   As Options 1 and 2 of this report are to progress the Stage 1 works, failure to adopt either of these options would have the same implications and risks, which includes enforcement action, breach of Council’s contractual obligations and failure to open and operate the road.

7.3       The proposals contained in the community engagement material (Attachment G) includes turning restrictions for the three intersections on Cranford Street to the north of Innes Road (McFaddens Road, Weston Road and Knowles Street).  The turning restrictions proposed to the west of Cranford Street are in response to the recommendation made in stage 1 of Dr Turner’s report.  Council must undertake traffic calming in these areas because the more than 30 percent increase in traffic threshold contained in the designation conditions is triggered.

7.4       The turning restrictions proposed to the east of Cranford Street are included in Stage 3 of Dr Turner’s report.  Therefore they are in addition to the work required immediately to comply with the more than 30% increase in traffic threshold contained in the designation conditions.

7.5       The risk with undertaking traffic calming such as this is that, for some people, the turning restrictions have the potential to materially and adversely alter their travel options.

7.6       The latest round of consultation material distributed addressed numerous issues and included the turning restrictions.  Only a small number of submissions received were in response to the turning restrictions.

7.7       No amount of consultation will entirely eliminate the risk of challenge, but appropriate consultation will likely flag any sources of material risk, which Council can then focus on and analyse more deeply (if needed).  This would reduce any risk and ensure that all affected parties fully understand the effects on them.

7.8       The Legal Services Unit has recommended Council staff undertake more targeted and specific consultation to ensure the affected residents fully understand the impacts of these turning restrictions.  Council staff have already included a proposal for this additional consultation in the recommendations in Resolution 7, page 2 of this report.

8.   Risks

8.1       The implementation of the proposed main road upgrades, intersection upgrades, signalised crossings and proposed cycle lanes does result in some on street parking loss. Loss of parking is mostly attributed to either safety improvements or improved efficiency of the road network. However, parking loss has been kept to a minimum and staff have worked with effected parties to minimise the impact to primarily business and residents.

8.2       Not approving the proposed turning restrictions will likely encourage short cutting through residential streets. Council is required under the Designation Condition (2016) to implement traffic calming measures where this occurs. This will result in further community disruption through consultation and construction. Traffic calming will have to be implemented along an entire road or network of roads resulting in increased costs compared to the implementation of turning restrictions.

8.3       Not approving the Cranford to Rutland Reserve walking and cycling connection will force cyclists to continue down Cranford Street. Access to the Papanui Parallel can be achieved via McFaddens Road, however, this will not be an obvious continuation of the route, and give a relatively poor level of service compared with the shared path adjacent to the Christchurch Northern Corridor and the Papanui Parallel, and will not increase the community’s patronage of either of these facilities.

8.4       There are some minor land purchases required to safely implement the proposal. However, we are able to construct a workable facility if that land purchase took longer than expected and then construct the final layout at completion of the land purchase.

8.5       There is a risk that enforcement of any clear-ways could be compromised due to the availability of tow trucks. An enforcement strategy will be developed, with mitigation measures prior to opening of any facilities.

9.   Next Steps

9.1       If the project is approved, detailed design would commence immediately with construction in early 2020 to align with the opening of the Christchurch Northern Corridor. Additional mitigation measures may be required that are discovered as a result of continuing monitoring after the opening of the Christchurch Northern Corridor. Council staff will fully brief the Community Boards and Council on any further measures that may be required.
