Have a say on St Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau road proposals

Wednesday, March 13, 2019   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: transport, consultation, planning, community engagement

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 13th March 2019

Residents are being asked for their views on possible roading changes in St Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau.

The changes have been recommended to address the traffic impacts of the new Christchurch Northern Corridor (CNC), which is due to open next year.

Traffic on Cranford Street.The CNC will extend the Northern Motorway through to QEII Drive and Cranford Street and will make travel times in and out of Christchurch shorter.

However, it is predicted to lead to more traffic on Cranford Street, south of Innes Road, and on some of the surrounding streets and that is what this consultation is about – how to best manage that increase in traffic.

Early engagement on how to manage the increased traffic volume was carried out with residents last year.
Independent traffic engineer Dr Shane Turner put together a three-stage Downstream Effects Management Plan, based on their feedback.

The draft plan looks at ways to manage additional traffic and reduce the number of vehicles taking short cuts through side streets (called rat running).

Christchurch City Council is now seeking public feedback on the recommendations in Dr Turner’s plan.

How to have your say

Council staff have organised drop-in sessions where people can find out more about the draft  Downstream Effects Management Plan for:

  • Monday 18th March (5 to 7pm): St Albans School Hall (17 Sheppard Place);
  • Wednesday 20th March (10.30am to 12.30pm): Scottish Society Hall (136 Caledonian Road);
  • Tuesday 26th March (3.30 to 5.30pm):  Scottish Society Hall (136 Caledonian Road); and
  • Wednesday 27th March (5 to 7pm): St Albans School Hall (17 Sheppard Place).

Chair of the Papanui-Innes Community Board Ali Jones, and Chair of the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board Sally Buck, are urging people who live in St Albans, Edgeware or Mairehau to take the time to familiarise themselves with the plan.

“Let’s be really clear – this is not a tick-box exercise. We want to hear from people living in these areas to see what they think of Dr Turner’s recommendations and tell us their ideas too. While this consultation process focuses on ways to manage  and mitigate the impacts of additional traffic that enters the local road network at Cranford Street, further work is being done on travel demand management as well,” says Ms Jones.

“This is an opportunity for people to express any concerns they might have and to tell us what they like and they don’t like about what is being proposed,” adds Ms Buck.

Residents have until 5pm on Wednesday 10th April 2019 to give their feedback. Their submissions will inform a final plan that will be considered first by the Community Boards and then by the Council.

Have your say on the proposed St Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau roading changes.

There will be opportunities for further public input on individual projects within the plan when the plan is formally adopted by the Council - before any work gets under way.
