Lake Road Improvement Project - Post-consultation update

 

MOVED by Chairperson A Bennett, seconded by Member T van Tonder:  

That the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board:

General comments

a)          notes that Auckland Transport (AT)’s Lake Road Improvements project proposes a mix of improvements within the peninsula aiming to improve travel choices and road safety, and that the project objectives are to give people more travel options to move around the peninsula to help free up the road for those who need to drive.

 

b)          advocates that Auckland Transport (AT) continues to develop and make the desired changes to this plan to improve the overall flow of traffic from all parts of Devonport peninsula to respond as much as possible, within the constraints of the project, to the strong desire of the community to see travel times reduced.

 

 

c)           Supports the use of new technology such as electronic roadside signs and apps to provide travellers with up to date travel information when travelling within the Lake Road corridor.

 

d)          strongly advocates to Auckland Transport (AT) and the governing body that there be no deferral in funding to the Lake Road Improvements project, as this is widely considered as the most important project being undertaken across the local board area.

Esmonde Road section

e)          strongly supports the proposed Esmonde Road cycle path, as it is the critical missing piece of infrastructure which will connect Waka Kotahi / New Zealand Transport Agency’s (NZTA) Northern Pathway to the eastern side of State Highway 1 (SH1).

 

f)           notes that the proposed Esmonde Road cycle path would also connect to key local board cycling and walking projects currently being undertaken (i.e. Patuone Reserve and Francis Street to Esmonde Road connection), thereby enabling people living in Takapuna and on the Devonport peninsula to safely access the Northern Pathway.

 

g)          does not support the current through traffic solution proposed for cyclists wishing to carry on to Takapuna Town Centre and beyond for the following reasons:

 

                 i.        Takapuna will grow be a popular work destination for residents on the Devonport peninsula, and the current end of journey solution proposed with a signalised crossing across Esmonde Road is unsatisfactory for rapid commuter journeys by bike; and

               ii.        merging into the through lanes from the separated bike lane along the road corridor will be unsafe for even skilled cyclists.

 

h)           requests that the overall amenity of Esmonde Road be significantly improved to make the road corridor, bike and footpaths a more welcoming, safe and attractive environment which support all modes of transport, and includes appropriate lighting, plantings and design which reflect the history and local characteristics of the area.

Esmonde Road to Belmont town center

i)            supports the creation of separated north and southbound cycle lanes on Lake Road between Esmonde Road and the Belmont town centre, as this will provide a safe and attractive alternative to using private vehicles on the Devonport peninsula, and will:

 

                    i.        over time assist with helping to lessen the significant volume of short trips (i.e. under 4 kilometres) being made by private motor vehicles in the local area;

                   ii.        support active modes of transport to local schools, sporting clubs, local amenities (i.e. parks and beaches) and town centres.

 

j)            supports the Lake Road, Bardia and Winscombe streets intersection being pedestrian and safety-focused, with further investigation done on a ‘Barnes Dance’ crossing to encourage active modes of transport.

 

k)           supports the undergrounding of the power lines in this section to make more space for the road corridor.

Bayswater Avenue to Albert Road

l)            prefers separated cycle lanes from the Bayswater ferry terminal through to the Bayswater Avenue / Lake Road intersection.

 

m)         requests Auckland Transport (AT) to consider a signalised crossing at the Old Lake Road / Lake Road intersection to allow easier access for vehicles turning right onto Lake Road.

n)           supports the proposed signalised crossing at the Lake and Seabreeze Roads, as this will provide a safe and accessible crossing for walking and cycling while supporting reduced car speeds going south bound on Lake Road.

Belmont town center

o)           supports the proposed concept design for the Belmont town centre improvements, as it will:

 

                 i.        enable greater pedestrian movement, active transport and place-making; and

               ii.        encourage more people to use and access the town centre, thereby boosting economic development for the Belmont town centre.

 

Resolution number DT/2020/73

MOVED by Member R Jackson, seconded by Member J O'Connor:  

Member R Jackson moved an amendment by replacement to the original recommendation as follows:

a)         notes that this board remains committed to the key goals of successive local boards for the Lake Road Upgrade, which are:

i.        to ease traffic congestion and achieve better traffic flow

ii.       to fix the three key pinch points at Hauraki, Bardia, and Belmont – and investigate intersection improvements at Eversleigh/St Leonards

iii.     to improve public transport and move significantly more people along the Lake Rd corridor in both directions, particularly between Hauraki Corner and Belmont

iv.     to improve pedestrian and cycle safety

 

b)        note that the proposed design does not meet the first two expectations on congestion and key intersections, and only partially addresses the goals around public transport, and pedestrian and cycle options.

 

c)         advocate that Auckland Transport continues to develop and make the desired changes to this plan to resolve the concerns and issues raised through the public consultation process, which revealed significant dissatisfaction on a range of issues, most importantly that the design would not reduce congestion on Lake Rd and may have the opposite effect and increase congestion.

 

d)        supports the use of new technology such as electronic roadside signs and apps to provide travelers with up to date travel information when travelling within the Lake Rd corridor.

 

e)         advocates to Auckland Transport and Auckland Council Governing Body that there be no deferral in funding to the Lake Road Improvements Project, as this is widely considered to be the most important project being undertaken across the local board area.

 

f)          express disappointment that the board has not yet been provided with the public submissions as previously requested and seek that these be provided in hard copy or downloadable electronic format at the earliest opportunity.

 

g)        express disappointment that the board was not provided with analysis and summary of the public feedback at the same time that it was provided to submitters and were not advised that the report had been posted online.

 

h)       provide Auckland Transport with more detailed feedback on specific elements of the Lake Road Improvements project and Belmont Centre improvements following consideration of submissions from the recent public consultation to provide clearer direction on those parts of the design that the local board support and on which there may be differing views.

A division was called for, voting on which was as follows:
