Proposed Regional Public Transport Plan

 

Resolution number HM/2018/212

MOVED by Member B Brady, seconded by Chairperson S Henderson:  

That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)          support the vision, outcomes and objectives outlined in the Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP).

b)         note that the Regional Public Transport Plan does not allocate budget to specific projects or programmes.

c)          note the bulk of major infrastructure outlined in this Regional Public Transport Plan will be delivered and operational after 2024.

d)         support the key strategic driver for Auckland’s transport system being guided by population growth and development in existing urban areas and greenfield growth areas.

e)          support the position that to increase the capacity of the transport network and provide customers with a more reliable journey, more road space must be allocated to public transport and active modes.

f)           note that New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) is now leading the business case for rapid transit corridors, including the North-west Light Rail Corridor.

g)         support the prioritisation of the North-west Light Rail Corridor as a crucial transport link for future growth.

h)         consider that Te Whau Pathway is a key catalyst for access to the Northwestern cycleway and merits being seen and funded as a regionally significant asset. 

i)           note that the Regional Public Transport Plan will contribute to the Henderson-Massey Local Board Plan objective “a flexible public transport network that meets the varied needs of a growing population” under the outcome “It is easy to get around without a car”.

j)           note that Henderson Metropolitan Centre is undergoing significant transformation as a Panuku “Unlock” project and the focus areas in the plan of improving customer access to public transport and improving māori responsiveness have particular application to well designed and meaningful integration of the town centre with the public transport network.

k)          note with concern that the plans for a new pedestrian/cyclist overbridge for the City Rail Link (CRL) Project at Henderson has aspects that are not conducive to placemaking outcomes as described in the plan or the focus area of improving customer access to public transport:

              i)            a new pedestrian/cyclist overbridge which is restricted to HOP card users only, rather than a full public access overbridge that will allow the general public such as Henderson High School students, to cross the rail corridor to the bus station or shopping centre, without a HOP card.

              ii)         the overbridge access lifts are directly in the path of a potential future lane identified in masterplanning and workshops; the proposed one-way public road connecting the two cul-de-sac streets, Smythe Road and Hickory Avenue would provide significantly improved urban design and development potential for the current Whoa! Studios site and adjacent Sonoco warehousing at 3 Hickory Avenue.

               iii)       there is an opportunity to further optimise the station and platform and associated structures to allow for more fit-for-purpose cycling facilities, including the provision of good quality, covered cycle parking at the station which is currently not provided for in the proposed CRL plans.

l)          provide the following feedback on the focus area of expanding and enhancing rapid and frequent networks

Integrated corridor priority programme

i)           support the approach, in particular as a mechanism for implementing placemaking initiatives.

ii)         support the Integrated Corridor Priority Programme’s City Centre-Northwest Light Rail project.

Increasing services on the Rapid Transport Network and Frequent Transport Network

iii)     support the aspiration to increase frequencies from a service every 15 minutes to a service every 10 minutes across these two networks.

iv)     support the aspirational 2027/2028 Rapid Transport Network and Frequent Transport Network as detailed in the draft plan.

m)       provide the following feedback on the focus area of improving customer access to public transport

Wayfinding

i)           support the embedding of te reo Māori into the network

ii)         note that wayfinding in all its forms is an important component of placemaking and encourages Auckland Transport to ensure that placemaking is a consideration when designing wayfinding improvements.

Walking and cycling

iii)     consider that walking and cycling should be a primary focus, and that should be reflected in Auckland Transport’s operational practices.

iv)     support the aspiration over the next ten years is to improve the safety, security and convenience of access around RTN stations as part of the funded walking and cycling programme.

v)         recommend that improving capacity to accommodate bikes on trains or buses and safely leave bikes at stations and stops is needed in conjunction with improving getting to and from first and last components of multimodal journeys.

vi)       support measures to address real and perceived road and personal safety (being and feeling safe), as it is central to the attractiveness of the walking and cycling environment.

Park and ride facilities

vii)    support the approach that new park and rides should be located at the periphery of the public transport network to avoid the congestion effects of additional car travel.

viii)   support that in more built up areas, feeder bus services tend to be more cost efficient.

ix)     Does not support pricing as a demand management tool.

Placemaking

x)      support the focus on placemaking through the Roads and Streets Framework.

xi)     support the principle that public transport design is a crucial part of the design of public space.

xii)    support the approach of engagement at a local level and welcome future opportunities to work together to meet community expectations while supporting the wider network.

n)        provide the following feedback on the focus area of improving Māori responsiveness

i)           note that Henderson metropolitan centre is one of Panuku Development’s “Unlock” locations, and Māori responsiveness is a key component of the development work already under way.

ii)      look forward to the opportunity for Māori responsiveness as outlined in the plan to continue to manifest in Henderson through the CRL development and the future Northwest light rail corridor, particularly in the areas of social procurement and Te Aranga design principles.

iii)     support the approach to partner with iwi to connect Māori communities with their marae or wahi tapu in areas that are difficult to service with conventional public transport.

iv)     support working towards bilingual announcements on all trains, ferries and buses.

v)      support incorporation of te reo Māori in the Technical Design Manual

vi)     support the use of Te Aranga design principles as a tool to shape development and tell the stories of mana whenua.

vii)   support working with iwi partners on employment and business development opportunities.

o)        provide the following feedback on the focus area of harnessing emerging technologies

i)           supports the approach of investing in emerging technologies as they apply to public transport.

ii)         supports the strategic approach of future-proofing the public transport network to enable Mobility-as-a-Service opportunities in the future
