More details on the agenda for this Friday’s meeting of the Papanui-Innes Community Board…
We’ve got a Papanui Innes Community Board meeting this Friday, but unfortunately due to technical difficulties, I haven’t been able to do a video this week.
Here’s a quick run-down on what’s coming up in the meeting though:
– in our public forum we’ll have a report back from a recipient of our Positive Youth Development Scheme, as well as a report from Community Energy Action.
– we have been asked to approve updated ‘no overtaking’ lines leading up to nine different level crossings in our area
– we have an application to our Positive Youth Development Scheme for a young person to attend the Future Problem Solving Championships in Wisconsin, USA
– we have an application to our Discretionary Response Fund from Crimewatch (Chch) Inc. towards vehicle operating costs to enable the delivery of the Northwest area community patrols
– our Community Board Area Report includes updates on the Main North Rd Bus Priority Scheme (consideration is being given to suggestions arising from the many submissions made on this – including regarding parking at the Harewood Rd end, and the possibility of keeping a right hand turn out of Grassmere St), and on the work being done to address maintenance issues in Rutland Reserve.

Thousands of people are expected to pack into Cranmer Square for the Anzac Day dawn service.
Here’s a peek over the Bridgestone Reserve fence at the future site of the Papanui Bush restoration project, and a reminder that the first community planting day is this Friday 27 April 2018 – meet at 12pm outside Papanui High School with your spade, gloves, and gumboots.
There’s still no solution to give the Christchurch City Council access to the rail corridor for the Northern Line cycleway through Papanui. As reported in this article, the project is hold due to access and design issues with KiwiRail. This is especially bad news for pedestrians & cyclists waiting on the missing section between Sturrocks and Tuckers Roads.
The Christchurch City Council is seeking the Government’s help to break a stalemate with KiwiRail that’s delaying the construction of a cycleway.
Have your say on a proposed speed limit change on Cranford Street and Main North Road. The Christchurch City Council is proposing a change from 60km/hr to 50km/hr for Cranford Street, and also for the section of Main North Road around the Cranford / QEII Drive area. (The background to this proposal is a recent discovery that there are conflicting gazetted speeds at the Main North/Northcote/QE II Drive intersection, and also some of the adjoining roads are not aligned with NZTA’s safe speed recommendations.) This proposal is open for feedback until 14 May 2018. Click through for more information and an online feedback form.
