Part B

4.1

Kurashiki wall - Halswell Quarry Park

David Bolam-Smith, Christchurch Kurashiki Sister City Committee, addressed the Board regarding the proposed installation of an additional wall at the entrance to the Kurashiki garden at Halswell Quarry Park.

The original design for the entrance included walls either side of the pathway of the same design as the rice houses on either side of the canal in Kurashiki. A wall was installed on the right side of the path but not the left. It is now proposed to install a wall on the left to match the existing wall. The low wall will incorporate a seat and there is the opportunity to plant behind the wall.

The construction to be undertaken by a stonemason, is scheduled to take place in November 2022.

After questions from members, the Chairperson thanked Mr Bolam-Smith for his presentation.

4.2      Brockworth Place Parking

Mark Alexander spoke on behalf of his son who has recently purchased a property in Brockworth Place, Riccarton, regarding limited parking in the street.

Mr Alexander observed that Brockworth Place has a number of multi-unit residences with wide entrances that limit the space available for on street parking and that there seems to be a high demand for parking. He suggested that as the place is wide it could accommodate angled parking along one side to create additional parking. Mr Alexander acknowledged that angled parking can create safety issues as it necessitates vehicles reversing into the traffic lane but said he does not consider this will be an issue in Brockworth Place which is not a major thoroughfare.

After questions from members, the Chairperson thanked Mr Alexander for his presentation.

Part B

That the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board agreed:

1.    To request staff to investigate and provide advice on the possible installation of angled parking on one side of Brockworth Place, Riccarton.

8.     Richmond Avenue - Options to reduce traffic speed while entering the Knightstream subdivision

Reference / Te Tohutoro:

1.   Brief Summary

1.1       The purpose of this report is to request that the Waipuna Halswell Hornby Riccarton Community Board approve the proposed treatments on Richmond Avenue on its approach to the Knightstream subdivision as shown in Attachment A

1.2       In March 2021 staff presented to the Community Board information regarding vehicle speeds and other traffic concerns along Richmond Avenue. It was highlighted that the average surveyed traffic speeds were at or below the posted speed limit (40km/h) at a majority of the survey sites along the length of Richmond Avenue.

1.3       However, the average traffic speeds were found to be 47km/h immediately after the change in speed limit at the northern end of the subdivision. But, due to the lack of any adjacent residential development along this short section of Richmond Avenue and the low likelihood of pedestrians / cyclists crossing at this location, staff feel that the safety risk at this location is very low and is difficult to warrant any physical treatments, particularly when compared to other higher risk locations around the city.

1.4       In September 2021 staff presented to the Community Board potential options to manage the speed of vehicles travelling along this part of Richmond Avenue. In January 2022, a detailed analysis of the preferred options was presented to the Community Board.

1.5       The decisions in this report are of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.  The level of significance was determined through consideration of the various assessment criteria in the Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy Worksheet.

2.   Officer Recommendations Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board:

1.         Approves that a flush median be painted along Richmond Avenue at the entry to the Knightstream subdivision in accordance with Attachment A as shown in the officer's report on the meeting agenda.

2.         Approves that a short section of the carriageway on Richmond Avenue at the entry to the Knightstream subdivision is painted red with a “40” road marking as shown in Attachment A to the officer's report on the meeting agenda.

3.         Approves that gated “vertical alignment hump” signs (PW39) are installed near the existing speed table at the Richmond Avenue / John Paterson Drive intersection.

 

3.   Reason for Report Recommendations Ngā Take mō te Whakatau

3.1       Members of the community have mentioned that many vehicles travel at inappropriate speeds along Richmond Avenue in spite of the residential outlook of Richmond Avenue, existing signage and the speed table at the John Paterson Drive / Richmond Avenue intersection. They indicated that they would like physical measures such as the reconstruction of the existing speed table to take place in order to reduce the vehicle operating speeds.

3.2       Staff have investigated the safety concerns at this location. The safety risks were found to be very low especially when compared with many other locations in the city. Due to regular feedback from a member of the community and advice from the Community Board, staff presented to the Community Board potential options which could lower the vehicle operating speeds along Richmond Avenue.

3.3       The Board asked staff to present the final options as a formal report.

3.4       The proposed treatments are expected to encourage drivers travelling on Richmond Avenue to slow down and adhere to the posted speed limit as they enter the Knightstream subdivision.

4.   Alternative Options Considered Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1       Speed cushions as vehicles enter the subdivision.

4.1.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     This would serve as a physical measure to reduce the speed of vehicles as they enter the subdivision.

4.1.2   The disadvantages of the option include:

·     High probability of noise disturbance and vibrations.

·     High cost and would be more warranted at other locations where road safety risks are higher.

4.2       Red surfacing on the ramps of the speed table at the Richmond Avenue / John Patterson Drive intersection.

4.2.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     This would increase awareness of the speed table thereby encouraging lower speeds.

4.2.2   The disadvantages of the option include:

·     The red surfacing will deteriorate over time reducing its visual impact and aesthetic appeal.

·     High Cost to construct and maintain.

4.3       Planted berm - This option involves kerb extensions and installing a planted berm on the shoulder approaching the subdivision.

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     This would provide a more residential outlook to this location especially for drivers who have just entered this road from a high speed motorway. It would also present a visually and physically narrower lane to the road users. These factors are expected to encourage lower speeds while entering the subdivision.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of the option include:

·     Cyclists would be forced into the main lane thereby creating a pinch point for cyclists near the berm.

·     High Cost.

4.4       Maintain the status quo.

4.4.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The low safety risk currently at this location does not warrant any treatment. The funds could be used for safety improvements in other high risk locations.

4.4.2   The disadvantages of the option include:

·     Vehicles could continue to travel over the posted speed limit as they enter the Knightstream subdivision (Though this is a concern, the risk at this stage is very minimal due to the absence of any adjacent developments and vehicles were found to slow down as they travelled further down Richmond Avenue).

5.   Detail / Te Whakamahuki

5.1       Richmond Avenue is a Secondary Collector road which connects the Knights Stream subdivision with the Christchurch Southern Motorway. The posted speed limit along Richmond Avenue is 40km/h. The speed limit 40 km/h starts approximately 50m south east of its intersection with Halswell Junction Road (roundabout). Users of the Christchurch Southern Motorway access the Knights Stream subdivision and also the wider Halswell suburb through this intersection.

5.2       Council staff have received repeated feedback from a select number of residents regarding vehicles travelling over the posted speed limits along Richmond Avenue and the assumed ineffectiveness of the raised table at the Richmond Avenue /John Paterson Drive intersection at slowing vehicles down.

5.3       Speed surveys were undertaken in 2021 at various locations along Richmond Avenue. The results showed that the average traffic speeds were around or below the posted speed limit (40km/h) at the majority of the surveyed sites.

5.4       However, the average traffic speed was 47km/h immediately after the change in speed limit at the entry on northern end to the subdivision. Due to the absence of residential or commercial properties in the adjacent land area and the low likelihood of pedestrians / cyclists crossing within this short section of Richmond Avenue, and while lower speeds would be preferred this should not impose any significant increase in risk, at this location.

5.5       Due to significant feedback from residents, staff were asked to investigate treatment options which would help reduce the speed of vehicles travelling through this section of Richmond Avenue.

5.6       Following the presentation of a longlist of potential options along with their cost estimates and recommendations by staff to the Community Board in September 2021, the board asked staff to investigate in more detail to form a shortlist of options. The shortlisted options are as follows:

·    Option 1: Flush median with red pavement markings

·    Option 2: Coloured markings on the ramp

·    Option 3: Speed cushions

·    Option 4: Additional signage

·    Option 5: Planting the berms at the corner to give the area a residential feel from the motorway exit

5.7       These treatments can potentially be funded from Minor Road Safety budget or the Minor Safety Interventions budget. The Minor Road Safety budget is aligned to the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Road to Zero program. Projects funded under this budget require the Agency’s approval. Due to the existing road safety scenario and the low level of risk at this location, any treatments here are unlikely to get WKNZTA’s approval. The Minor Safety Interventions budget has a limit of $300,000 and is to be allocated for potential road safety treatments across the city. As indicated earlier, the risk level at this location does not warrant a significant allocation of funds from this budget.

5.8       A detailed analysis of these options was presented to the Board in February 2022. Based on the road safety risks at this location and the available funding, staff recommended options 1 and 4 for implementation.

5.9       The Community Board expressed a preference to implement a combination of options 1, 2 and 3. These options are estimated to cost over $25,000/-, which at this stage staff feel cannot be warranted at this location due to the existing safety scenario.

5.10    Staff still feel that options 1 and 4 are more suitable for this location. This would also ensure that all the similar situations in the city are treated consistently.

5.11    Consultation is not required for these types of treatments due to their scale and significance. The direct impact on the residents due to these treatments is also expected to be minimal.

5.12    The approval of the Waipuna Halswell Hornby Riccarton Community Board is required to progress with Options 1 and 4.
