Changes to the proposal
We considered all feedback and the following changes have been made:
- Speed limit change – following a safety audit the 40kph zone will also include Cliff Street, Wakatu Avenue, and Bayview Road. Please note: we will do a more comprehensive review of speeds in the wider area, but for now the changes are limited to the Moncks Bay area.
- Moncks Bay carpark – layout modified (one way in/one way out) and boat/trailer parking added.
- Main Road parking –
- Loss of two more parking spaces on the west side of Main Road from Cave Terrace to Wakatu Avenue and gain of two more spaces on the south side of Main Road from Wakatu Avenue to Bay View Road (due to the bus stop moving further north).
- Introduction of loading zone for boat drop off/pick up alongside the boat shed on Main Road.
- Main Road parking north of boatsheds – proposed angle parking changed to parallel parking (similar to existing).
- Cliff Street and Bayview Road intersections – modified to the build out now coming from both sides of the street for better alignment. Proposed trees to be replaced with low shrubs for better visibility.
- Bus stops –
- Bus stop outside 2 Wakatu Avenue moved approx 22 metres towards the north
- Bus stop outside the pump station moved approx 25 metres towards the west
- New pedestrian islands –
- Proposed pedestrian island on the east side of Wakatu Avenue, now moved to the west side of Wakatu Avenue for better visibility
- Proposed pedestrian island at the pump station carpark now moved to the north of the car park entrance
- Bike stands – removed from the kerb build out at Cliff Street intersection. Two cycle stands to be added to landscape area on the pathway side and around the pump station car park area.
A staff report will be presented to the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board for a decision on the final plan on Monday 1 February 2021.
