1.   Purpose of the Report Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1       The purpose of this report on the Lincoln Road Passenger Transport Improvements (between Curletts & Whiteleigh) is to advise the Hearings Panel on the outcome of the consultation and engagement process and to inform it of the preferred option before it considers the views of submitters both oral and written.

1.2       The report also requests that the Hearings Panel makes a recommendation to the Urban Development and Transport Committee to approve the revised scheme design, as per Attachment A.  This includes:

·    Peak hour bus lanes along Lincoln Road, between Whiteleigh Avenue and Curletts Road

§ Weekdays 7am to 9am towards the city (northbound)

§ Weekdays 3pm to 6pm towards Halswell (southbound)

·    Peak hour bus lane change on Lincoln Road Stage 1 (Moorhouse to Whiteleigh) on weekdays from 3pm to 6pm towards Halswell (southbound),

·    Time restricted parking, and

·    Removal of 44 mature trees along the berms and centre median with replacement as per CCC tree policy.

1.3       The decision in this report is of medium significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.  The level of significance was determined by the level of community interest in bus lanes and availability of government funding, balanced with the impact on the city as a whole.

2.   Proposed Officer Recommendations  Ngā Tūtohu

That the Hearings Panel:

2.1       Receives the information within, attached to this report, and considers the written and oral submissions made as part of the public consultation process.

2.2       Recommends that the Urban Development and Transport Committee approves:

a.    Revised scheme design of the Lincoln Road PT Improvements (Between Curletts & Whiteleigh), as detailed in Attachment A; including changes to the Lincoln Road/ Domain Terrace and Lincoln Road/ Torrence Road intersections.

b.    Time restricted parking, as detailed in Attachment A; and

c.    tree removal, as detailed in Attachment A.

2.3       Recommends to the Urban Development and Transport Committee that the detailed traffic resolutions required for the implementation of the project are brought back to the Committee for approval at the end of the detailed design phase, prior to the beginning of construction.

3.   Background Te Horopaki

3.1       Lincoln Road (Curletts Road - Whiteleigh Avenue) provides a key bus priority connection between the approved Lincoln Road Phase 1 (Whiteleigh Avenue to Moorhouse Avenue) and the proposed Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency section along Halswell Road, between Dunbars and Curletts Roads. These projects provides improved public transport services linking southwest of Christchurch with the city.

3.2       This is part of the Programme Business Case CCC transport system for Lincoln Rd/Whiteleigh Ave under Cluster 6 objectives. It is designed to improve/enhance the transport network in line with the Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan (identified as a core public transport route).

3.3       The primary objectives for the project have been identified as follows:

a.    Improved journey time reliability for public transport services in relation to private vehicles.

b.    Improved connectivity, convenience and safety for all active travel modes. This incorporates cyclists, pedestrians, public transport users and micro-mobility users (scooters, electric longboards, etc.) and includes access to improved public transport infrastructure.

c.    Improved amenity consistent with the One Network Framework (ONF), movement and place function.

d.    A central median providing safety for all users. It improves safety and efficiency on Lincoln Road by reducing right turning movements and creates amenity space.

3.4       Lincoln Road (Curletts Road - Whiteleigh Avenue) is a major arterial road. The section between Curletts Road to Wrights Road is currently a single lane on either side of the road. As part of public transport priority, Lincoln Road (Curletts Road to Wrights Road) will be upgraded to a multilane major arterial, where access management will be implemented to improve the traffic safety and efficiency. The proposed design for Lincoln Road peak hour bus lanes project proposes a central raised median which will remove right turn movement into all the existing private and commercial driveways.

3.5       Progress to date on Lincoln Road PT Improvements (Between Curletts & Whiteleigh):

3.5.1   Council approved the project to be declared Metropolitan Significance  on 13 August 2020, item 22: https://christchurch.infocouncil.biz/Open/2020/08/CNCL_20200813_MIN_4048_AT_WEB.htm

3.5.2   Council requested the scheme design to be re-visited in August 2020.  This was to consider rationalising potential property purchase and consider design changes, particularly in relation to pedestrian connectivity.

3.5.3   Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board were updated on the scheme design progress in July 2021.

3.5.4   Non-resident (businesses and community groups) stakeholder engagement took place between October – November 2021.

3.5.5   Speydon-Cashmere Community Board were briefed on the scheme design for consultation in November 2021.

3.6       Public consultation was carried out from 16 November up to 12 December 2021 including four community drop-in sessions. A business focussed community drop-in session was held on 9 November 2021 with resident drop-in sessions held on 23 November, 2 and 8 December 2021.

4.   Option descriptions

4.1       Peak Hour bus lanes (Curletts Road to Whiteleigh Avenue)

4.1.1   Option Description: Install peak hour bus lanes, between Whiteleigh Avenue and Curletts Road. The final proposal outlined below differs from the consultation plan by minor changes in response to submissions received (refer to Attachment A).  These changes are detailed in Section 4.6

Key features of the scheme include:

·    Extension of the centre raised median from Whiteleigh Avenue to Curletts Road to improve safety of all road users. Centre raised median further provides opportunity for street beautification with trees and landscaping.

·    Relocated and new bus stops, shelters and seats.

·    4.2 metre wide bus lanes on Lincoln Road between Wrights Road and Curletts Road, catering for buses and cyclists as a shared lane.

·    Three additional pedestrian crossing points in the centre median to prioritize access for local residents to properties, pedestrians, and cyclists.

·    Widening the footpath along Lincoln Road between Curletts and Wrights Roads to 2.3 metres, to provide a better than standard level of service (2.0 meters is minimum standard).

·    Removal of on-street parking when the bus lanes are operational between Curletts Road and Wrights Road. On-street parking will be usable outside of bus peak hour times. Existing parking bays on Lincoln Road between Lindores Street to Twigger Street will be retained on both sides.

·    Restricted right turn in and out of Domain Terrace, and restricted right turn out from Torrens Road making it safer for all road users.

·    A U-turn bay is proposed outside 20 Lincoln Road to provide a turning opportunity for vehicles coming from Annex Road and wanting to drive towards Halswell or to access Halswell Road businesses.

·    From the feedback received, a further U-turn bay is proposed outside 49 Lincoln Road to provide a turning opportunity for vehicles wanting to drive towards Halswell or access Domain Terrace and Village Health.

4.1.2   Option Advantages:

In addition to the scheme features listed above, this design:

·    Improves journey time reliability for public transport services.

·    Improves connectivity, convenience and safety for all active travel modes. This incorporates cyclists, pedestrians, PT users and micro-mobility users (scooters, electric longboards, etc.) and includes access to improved PT infrastructure.

·    Improves amenity consistent with the One Network Framework (ONF), movement and place function, by planting additional trees to soften the street scape.

·    Provides peak hour bus lanes connecting with Lincoln Road Phase 1 (Whiteleigh Road to Moorhouse Avenue) and the proposed Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency section along Halswell Road, between Dunbars and Curletts roads.

·    Provides a cycle connection to the completed MCR Nor’West Arc cycleway.

·    62 submitters supported peak hour bus lanes, refer to Attachment E.

4.1.3   Option Disadvantages:

·    The proposed scheme design prevents right turn in and out movement from Domain Terrace onto Lincoln Road.

·    The proposed scheme design prevents right turn access into private properties and businesses due to central median extension, however U turn bays have been provided to reduce the impact of this.

·    The proposed scheme design prevents right turn access into 9-13 Halswell Road businesses as well as to 92, 94, 98 and 100 Lincoln Road (Foodstuffs). For more detailed information, please refer to Section 4.4 for 9-13 Halswell Road and to Section 4.5 for 92, 94, 98 and 100 Lincoln Road.

·    46 submitters did not support peak hour bus lanes, refer to Attachment E.

4.2       Peak Hour bus lane change (Moorhouse Avenue to Whiteleigh Avenue)

Recommendation: Change of peak hour bus lane on Lincoln Road Phase 1 outbound bus lane (towards Halswell). Original bus lane for this section was consulted on in 2018 as a 4pm to 6pm bus lane.

4.2.1   Option Description: Change the peak hour times of the outbound bus lane on the Lincoln Road Phase 1 section to be operational from 3pm to 6pm.

4.2.2   Option Advantage:

·    Consistency between Lincoln Road Phase 1 (Whiteleigh Avenue and Moorhouse Avenue) and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency section along Halswell Road, between Dunbars and Curletts roads.

·    Aligns with afternoon school times and provides for students travel requirements.

·    47 submitters supported the additional hour with an additional nine submitters supporting change but wanted to see alternative/ extended times. Refer to Attachment E.

4.2.3   Option Disadvantages:

·    On-street parking might be affected for an additional hour in front of businesses on south side of Lincoln Road. 

·    44 submitters did not support the additional hour. Refer to Attachment E.

4.3       Saturday Peak Hour bus lanes

Recommendation: Not implementing Saturday peak hour bus lanes based on submissions.

4.3.1   Option Description: Saturday peak hour bus lanes on both inbound and outbound from 10 am to 2 pm. In accordance with traffic count survey, Saturday vehicle count is similar to weekdays. The inbound peak traffic occurs from 10 am to 2 pm. While outbound peak traffic occurs from 12 pm to 1 pm.

4.3.2   Option Advantage:

·    Consistency with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency section along Halswell Road, between Dunbars and Curletts roads.

·    Provides users alternative transport opportunities to access stadiums in the area such as Ngā Puna Wai, Orangetheory Stadium, Christchurch Arena and Addington Raceway.

·    73 submitters supported Saturday peak hour bus lanes. Refer to Attachment E.

4.3.3   Option Disadvantages:

·    On-street parking will not be available on both sides of the road between Curletts Road and Whiteleigh Avenue between 10am and 2pm on Saturdays.

·    79 submitters did not support the Saturday peak hour bus lanes. Refer to Attachment E.

4.4       Technical Analysis: 9-13 Halswell Road

4.4.1   Description: Proposed scheme design prevents right turn access into 9-13 Halswell Road.

4.4.2   Design Elements:

·    Road corridoris increased from 2 to 4 lanes (2 either side of median) by using and procuring property designations on southern side.

·    Central median provides improved safety for all users. It improves efficiency on Lincoln Road by reducing right-turn movement and creates amenity space.

·    Right turn movements into all the existing private and commercial driveways are prohibited in accordance with the design guide for arterial road access management. Alternative facilities, for example U-Turn bays, have been proposed to mitigate the inconvenience to the locals. The numbers and locations of these facilities have been carefully considered to balance the requirements of safety, efficiency and convenience.

4.4.3   Risks of Providing Right-Turn Lane or Extra U-Turn lane:

·    During peak hour when bus lanes are operating, buses and cyclists will have shared use of the outer kerbside lane. There is a risk that in periods where Lincoln Road traffic is at a standstill, a westbound motorist could yield to allow a driver to complete the U-turn. In this scenario a larger vehicle in the inside traffic lane may obscure a bus, bicycle or motorbike in the bus lane resulting in a collision.

·    Outside peak hour bus lane operation, right turn risk for turning traffic is associated with parked vehicles and cyclist using the outer lane.

·    An extra turning bay is not possible between Curletts Road and Coppel Place as two traffic lanes merge into one vehicle lane towards the city (northbound) opposite Coppel Place. Current morning peak traffic backs up from before Curletts Road and a turning bay in this location would potentially add to congestion.

·    Current afternoon peak traffic outbound backs up from Curletts Road past Annex Road increasing risk of visibility for vehicles wanting to turn right over two traffic lanes.

·    Vehicles may use the right-turn lane as a U-turn facility for linking to Hoon Hay shops, Coppel Place and driving towards Halswell. As the proposed carriageway is not wide enough for vehicles to perform a U-turn, these vehicles might perform a 3-point turn in the carriageway, or turn into 9-13 Halswell Road to complete a U-turn in the property then left turn out from the property heading to Coppell Place.

·    Vehicles driving out of 9-13 Halswell Road might try to use the gap in the median (if it was provided) to carry out a right turn, which could lead to a collision with city bound vehicles. Vehicles travelling in the opposite direction from city to Halswell might try to use the gap in the median to carry out a U-turn, which could lead to a collision with city inbound vehicles.

·    Refer to Attachment C for an independent Safe System Assessment completed on access movement for 9-13 Halswell Road.

4.4.4   Impact:

·    Removal of the right turn into 9-13 Halswell Road is inconvenient for customers or services vehicles from the south-west direction to access the property.

·    Removal of the right turn out from 9-13 Halswell Road will requires customers or services vehicles heading city bound to reroute or perform a U-turn at Curletts Road intersection which is a permissible manoeuvre .

4.4.5   Mitigations:

·    A dedicated U-turn bay is proposed after Annex Road, which is less than 150m away from the business entrance. Location is chosen due to additional corridor width provided by utilising the property designation.

·    Additional signage can be installed in advance of businesses, showing a U-turn bay ahead.

·    Communications will be sent out during construction and post-construction to highlight road layout changes.

4.5       Technical Analysis: 92, 94, 100 and 108 Lincoln Road (Foodstuffs)

4.5.1   Description: Proposed scheme design prevents right turn movement into and out of 92, 94, 100 and 108 Lincoln Road.

4.5.2   Design Criteria:

·    Road corridor width is increased to 4 lanes (2 either side of median) by using and procuring property designations on the southern side.

·    Central median provides safety for all users. It Improves efficiency on Lincoln Road by reducing out movement. Reduces right-turn movement and creates amenity space.

·    No right turn out movement from Torrens Road.  Right turn in lane provided in central median to access Torrens Road and businesses. Torrens Road is a predominantly residential street serving access to some 80 households in addition to commercial activities such as the Bin Inn store and an automotive repair activity that front Lincoln Road.

·    Current consent (extended in 2021) provides one two-way access and one entry access on Lincoln Road and one two-way access on Lyttelton Street. Existing light vehicle onto Lincoln Road are limited to left turn only whereas heavy B-trains and truck and trailer (delivery) can access Lincoln Road via a right turn.

·    Prohibition of right turn in / out of the site from Lincoln Road eliminates the risks listed in Item 4.5.3.

4.5.3   Risk of Allowing Truck and Trailer Right Turn into Lincoln Road:

·    High risk for pedestrian, cyclist and motorcycle crashes due to turn movement over multiple lanes. The risk is increased due to high traffic volumes on Lincoln Road and the proposed property exit creating a complex environment for above users.

·    High risk for intersection crash types for vehicles. This is driven by right turn against intersection within a complex environment with multiple turn movement at this intersection.

·    Given the geometry of the road in the vicinity of the western New World access (opposite Torrens Road), the concern is that users may attempt to travel straight ahead or right turn and this will create adverse impacts on safety for Lincoln Road users.

·    The location of the proposed western access effectively creates a 4-arm intersection which is generally not recommended for road safety reasons given the number of conflict points that this creates (32 compared to 9 for a T intersection) and the noticeably higher crash rate associated with 4-arm intersections.

·    Refer to Attachment D for an independent Safe System Assessment completed on access movement for 92, 94, 100 and 108 Lincoln Road.

4.5.4   Impact:

·    Foodstuffs (New World) delivery vehicles to exit left onto Lincoln Road and use alternative route.

·    Foodstuffs concerned that the proposed design affects their approved consent and that the central median will have a severe impact on the operation of the essential service supermarket.

·    Prohibition of right turn into the site from Lincoln Road may increase right turn demands from Lincoln Road into Lyttelton Street at Lincoln / Lyttelton intersection.

4.5.5   Mitigations:

·    Due to land acquisition and road corridor widening on the southern side, the distance between central median and property boundary is 11.6m. This distance is sufficient for heavy B-trains as well as a truck and trailer to exit left onto Lincoln Road. This was not previously possible at the time of consent application.

·    A green right turn arrow will be introduced to the exiting signals at the Lincoln / Lyttelton intersection to facilitate the potential increased right turn movements.

·    The impact of the proposed road changes on the consented Foodstuffs supermarket while resulting in a loss of ability to turn right in and out of the Lincoln Road access still maintains left-in-left-out movements (the predominant site traffic movement) to occur on this frontage.  In addition, the proposed road changes have no impact on the consented Lyttelton Street supermarket access.

Changes presented to the Hearings Panel as a result of consultation feedback:

4.6       Peak Hour bus lanes (Curletts Road to Whiteleigh Avenue)

4.6.1   The preferred scheme design incorporates the following minor changes as a result of the feedback received on the consultation plan, refer to Attachment A:

·    An additional U-turn bay is proposed outside 49 Lincoln Road to provide a turning opportunity for vehicles coming from businesses on the north side and wanting to drive towards Halswell or to access St. Martin’s Church, Domain Terrace and Village Health. This additional U-turn bay reduces pressure on right turn movements at Lyttleton Street.

·    Pedestrian crossing before Annex Road is proposed to be relocated in-line with 8 Lincoln Road providing pre-school drop-off and crossing opportunity from Annex Road.

·    Median islands to be installed at the Domain Terrance, the private lane opposite Domain Terrance and Sylvan Street.

·    Bus lanes extend further to the east side of Parade Court, extend to the bus stop near Torrens Road and Curletts Road.

·    Kerb build out extend further on the south side of the road opposite Lindores Street.

4.7       Supplementary feedback from consultation:

4.7.1   The following key requests were received through public consultation but are not able to be resolved as part of this project:

·    Changing peak hour bus lanes to T2 lanes to allow vehicles to use it providing vehicle has 2 or more occupants. Bus lanes help buses to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions by carrying more people per trip. This is better for the environment and helps everyone get to where they want to go on time. T2 lanes require extra road width for cycle lanes and bus stops for the entire route, which is not able to be achieved.

·    Request for right turn arrow from Lincoln Road turning into Curletts Road. This intersection falls under Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. CCC operations staff are investigating the implication of this request and submissions and findings will be shared with Waka Kotahi.

·    Safer cycleway and or separated cycleway requested for Lincoln Road. The proposed scheme design caters for safer cycleway with additional width provided within 4.2m bus lane. Lincoln Road does not fall under major cycle routes and a separated cycleway is not in current planning. CCC will arrange meeting with ECan to discuss potential conflict between cyclist and busses as raised by submissions.

·    Request to extend shared path on norther side of Lincoln Road from Annex Road up to Curletts Road. Due to unknown future development for MoE for site (former Spreydon School), the property designation is not on list for acquisition and current corridor width does not provide sufficient space for a shared path.

·    Request to extend bus lanes through to intersection or install bus gates. This will be investigated during detail design phase.
