Public input sought on St Asaph Street options

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 13th September 2017

Community feedback is being sought on two options for changing the road lay-out on St Asaph St.

Traffic on St Asaph Street.Over the past six months Christchurch City Council staff have been meeting with representatives from the Central City Business Group to discuss how the design of St Asaph Street could be modified to address the group’s concerns about the lack of parking spaces, the accessibility of the parking bays, and the narrow width of the traffic lanes.

The CCBG favour a $1.2 million redesign option that involves:

  • Reinstating approximately 53 carparks.
  • Revising the tree pit design on the north side of the corridor and reducing the number of tree pits provided.
  • Reducing the width of the northern footpath by a metre so the width of the traffic lanes can be increased.

Council staff have suggested an option costing about $210,000 that involves:

  • Making minor enhancements to St Asaph Street by modifying the entry and exit of parking bays so they are easier to get in and out of.
  • Installing two goods vehicle loading zones.
  • Installing additional cycle parking on identified islands.
  • Modifying the tree pit kerb design so they cause less damage to car wheels.

Today the Council’s Infrastructure, Transport and Environment (ITE) Committee decided it would seek public feedback on both options.

Find out more out the proposed options for St Asaph Street, including how to give feedback. Feedback on the St Asaph Street layout options will be open until Friday 6th October 2017.

The Committee has set aside time on Monday 30th October to hear from anyone who wishes to speak about the options outlined.

Property and business owners on St Asaph St should receive letters from the Council over the next few days offering them the chance to give their feedback.

“The Committee is looking forward to having the chance to hear directly from those likely to be most impacted by any further layout changes on St Asaph St. Before we settle on either option, we need to hear and consider the views of the local community," said ITE Committee Chair Cr Pauline Cotter.

In the meantime the Council is implementing a number of minor safety improvements to St Asaph Street. The improvements were recommended following an independent road safety audit and mainly affect line markings and reflective markers. They should result in improved visibility and traffic flows.
