Community feedback leads to changes to transport projects

Wednesday, September 4, 2019   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: transport, submissions, consultation

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 4th September 2019

Community feedback has led to more than 50 changes being made to an initial package of transport projects proposed for St Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau.

The transport projects are designed to help mitigate the impacts of extra traffic that is likely to travel through those areas when the Christchurch Northern Corridor opens next year.

Christchurch City Council received more than 250 public submissions on the proposed transport projects.

Council staff have studied the submissions and prepared a report which recommends more than 50 changes are made to the initial package of works.

Their report will be considered by a joint meeting of the Papanui-Innes and Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Boards on Monday (9th September).

The two Boards will also hear from about 50 submitters at that meeting, who have indicated they want to speak to their submission.

The changes that Council staff are recommending are designed to address some concerns raised by the community about intersection safety, cycle connections, access to residential areas, and parking.

Key changes that staff are recommending include:

  • Not installing the southbound clearway on Cranford and Sherborne Street, south of Berwick Street.
  • Reinstating the left turn from Berwick Street into Cranford Street.
  • Removing the right turning lane from Warrington Street into Barbadoes Street to provide more parking around the shops in that area.
  • Safety improvements on Canon and Purchas Streets.
  • Introducing time restricted parking around the local shopping areas.

The Community Boards will consider the staff report and the public submissions and then make recommendations to the full Council.
