This project involves intersection improvement works relating to the Cashmere Road / Hoon Hay Road / Worsleys Road intersection .
Consultation on Cashmere Road Intersection Improvements has now closed. People were able to provide feedback from 31 July 2017 to 28 August 2017.
During this time we heard from 186 individuals and groups.
The minutes(external link) from the 7 November 2017 Spreydon Cashmere Community Board meeting are now available. The report to the Council with the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board recommendation(external link) is also available.
The final decision on this project was made at the Council meeting on 7 December 2017. The Community Board recommendation was approved. This decision can also be viewed online.(external link)
At the Council meeting on 15 September 2016 the decision was made to fund intersection improvement works at the Cashmere Road / Hoon Hay Road / Worsleys Road intersection. If approved, construction is expected to commence in May 2018.
This project was brought forward by Council due to community concerns around safety for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists at this intersection. This intersection already has high usage, which is anticipated to increase further when the Christchurch Adventure Park re-opens and with the completion of the Cashmere Estate subdivision.
There are two proposals that we are seeking feedback on, both of these involve realigning the intersection and the installation of traffic lights, along with additional works in some of the surrounding streets. Please refer to the concept plans and option descriptions for more detail on this.
These items are currently proposed.
These items are currently proposed.
Proposed work on these streets involves the construction of 14 speed humps along these roads and reshaping of each intersection. This work will help to discourage through traffic from the intersection improvement works.
Due to the installation of the traffic lights, there is not enough road space to retain on street car parking on both sides of Cashmere Road. Therefore the only difference relates to the car parking and whether parking in the vicinity of the Cracroft shopping centre is provided on the north or south side of the road. Currently there are approximately 18 off street parks for patrons use at the Cracroft shopping centre.
This option includes on street parking outside the Cracroft shopping centre on the north side of Cashmere Road, with no parking on the opposite side of road.
At present on the north side of Cashmere Road, there are ten parks from the Cashmere Road / Hoon Hay Road intersection up to the bridge. Due to the extension of the no stopping lines and the new bus stop this option would reduce the parking spaces along here to four parks.
This option includes on street parking on the south side of Cashmere Road, outside 161 Cashmere Road for two vehicles, but no on street parking outside the Cracroft shopping centre on the north side of Cashmere Road.
At present on the south side of Cashmere Road from the Cashmere Road / Worsleys Road intersection up to the bridge there are ten parks. Due to the extension of the no stopping lines this option would reduce the parking spaces along here to two parks.
The proposed signals and the inclusion of the zebra crossings will make it easier and safer for pedestrians to cross the road at this intersection.
The inclusion of cycle lanes and the speed calming measures will create a safer cycling environment for users who are confident cycling in traffic.
Due to the existing bus stops outside 349 Hoon Hay Road and 170 Cashmere Road being such a short distance to the next bus stop, the proposal to relocate and remove these will result in less stops for the bus service, so should improve travel times through this intersection.
The proposal to include traffic lights will assist with the anticipated increase in drivers using this intersection and side streets, so that it can remain functional and safe.
To improve how this intersection will look visually, there is additional landscaping to be included. Low level planting is proposed at the Hoon Hay Road / Cashmere Road corner and at the Worsleys Road / Cashmere Road corner. In order to re-align the intersection, there are four trees proposed to be removed.
Once the consultation period has closed, the project team will analyse the feedback and produce a staff report which will go the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board for a recommendation to Council, who will make the final decision.
At this stage we are expecting a recommendation to be made by the Community Board at their October 2017 meeting. The final decision will be made at the next Council meeting in November 2017. If an option is approved, construction is expected to commence in May 2018 and take four months to complete. This is subject to contractor availability and weather and ground cond
