Report seeks changes to central city transport programme

Thursday, February 08, 2018   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: transport, Report, accessibility

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 7th February 2018

A report which recommends progressing the planned upgrade of High Street and the extension of the city’s heritage tramway will be considered by Christchurch City Council’s Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee next week.

High Street.The report recommends making a number of changes to the roll-out of the An Accessible City programme to ensure there is alignment between the planned projects and public and private developments happening in the central city.

For example, the report recommends the Council brings forward work on upgrading High Street between Manchester Street and St Asaph Street so that it ties in with the completion of the majority of the development in High Street.

It recommends the Council continues with planned improvements to Kilmore Street - between Colombo and Durham Streets - to support the re-opening of the Town Hall.

However, it suggests delaying work on the remainder of Kilmore Street and Salisbury Street until the 2022/23 financial year, although design work will continue in the interim.

The report also recommends the Council:

  • Proceeds with the work on Ferry Road, between Fitzgerald Avenue and St Asaph Street, so the central city connection for the Heathcote Expressway cycleway can be completed.
  • Continues work to complete the section of Antigua Street (between St Asaph Street and Moorhouse Avenue) to connect the Quarryman’s Trail Major Cycle Route.
  • Brings forward budget to complete the section of Colombo Street (between Bealey Avenue and Kilmore Street) to connect the Papanui Parallel Major Cycle Route.
  • Continues with minor enhancements to St Asaph Street as agreed by the Council in December 2017.
  • Continues to work on the design for Hereford Street (between Manchester Street and Cambridge Terrace).
  • Continues to work on the design for High Street, from Hereford Street to Manchester Street.
  • Continues with the slow speed zone and wayfinding projects in the central city.

The Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee will consider the report’s recommendations when it meets on Monday 12th February 2018.
