What does the Long Term Plan mean for the Papanui area?

The Christchurch City Council has published a draft Long Term Plan, which outlines how much planned services and projects will cost, how they will be funded, and what rates will need to be. Here are some highlights:
🛣️The Greers, Northcote & Sawyers Arms intersection safety improvement project ($7m) is deleted.
🛣️The Northcote Road Corridor Improvement project ($15m) is deleted.
🚦Funding for traffic lights at the Greers/Langdons intersection ($1.8m) remains. This leaves a shortfall (the cost estimate is $2.58m), but Council staff anticipate that this shortfall can be covered from within existing budgets.
🚴‍♀️Nor’West Arc section 3 funding increases $10m to $21m, in line with cost estimates to complete this project, which will link Harewood Road through to the University of Canterbury.
🚴‍♀️No change is proposed to funding for the Wheels to Wings – Papanui ki Waiwhetū cycleway.
🛣️$2m is added for Breens/Gardiners/Harewood intersection safety.
🎠Play space renewals at Regency Reserve, Norrie Park, and Momorangi Reserve remain funded ($0.25m), but the budget is pushed back from 2024/25 to around 2026.
🛣️Budget for intersection safety improvements at Prestons & Main North Road and also at Prestons & Grimseys ($1.8m total) is deleted. Council staff advise these projects are not necessary due to changed traffic patterns following the opening of the Northern Corridor motorway.
🚴‍♀️Cycle Connections funding associated with the Northern Line MCR is delayed but increased from $0.5m to $2.7m.

⌨️Have your say: the draft Long Term Plan is open for feedback until 21 April 2024.
