2.       A general summary of operational projects and activities of interest to the Waiheke Local Board.

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation

Horopaki

Context

3.       Auckland Transport is responsible for all of Auckland’s transport services, excluding state highways. We report monthly to local boards, as set out in our Local Board Engagement Plan. This reporting commitment acknowledges the important engagement role local boards play within the governance of Auckland on behalf of their local communities. 

4.       This report updates the Waiheke Local Board on Auckland Transport (AT) projects and operations in the local board area.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

Local Board Transport Capital Fund (LBTCF)

5.       The LBTCF is a capital budget provided to all local boards by Auckland Council and delivered by Auckland Transport. Local boards can use this fund to deliver transport infrastructure projects that they believe are important but are not part of AT’s work programme.

6.       The current amount of funding proposed in the Regional Land Transport Plan is $400,000 per annum.

7.       The unspent budget of $71,493.50 from 2020/2021 is carried forward for the board to allocate as they see fit providing a total fund available for 2021/2022 of $471,493.50.

8.       The local board have prioritised four projects (WHK/2022/49) and asked AT to scope and provide a rough order of costs to determine what can best be achieved with the funds available to them. These projects are generally planned to fit in with future resealing programmes.

9.       AT is due to provide the scope and costing to the local board to enable them to approve the funding at the June business meeting.

Community Safety Fund (CSF)

10.     The CSF is a capital budget established by Auckland Transport for use by local boards to fund local road safety initiatives. The purpose of this fund is to allow elected members to address long-standing local road safety issues that are not regional priorities and are therefore not being addressed by the Auckland Transport programme.

11.     This project is to provide a separated sealed shoulder from the Yacht Club to Shelly Beach Rd            

12.     A planning specialist who is experienced with coastal work on the island has been engaged by the project team to:

·    Prepare plan showing proposed sealed shoulder over the topographical survey and the Mean High Water Spring line.

·    Design retaining structures where required (Reviewed by a Coastal Engineer) and finalise draft detailed design.

·    Start preliminary discussions with Auckland Council and start preparing Land Use and Coastal Permit application

·    Meet with Auckland Council Arborist to finalise tree consent and Tree Owner Approval process

·    Undertake Mana Whenua consultation.

13.     Indicative timelines will be provided upon completion of the initial planning discussions with Auckland Council.

Update on Auckland Transport operations:

14.     The table below has a general summary of projects and activities of interest to the local board with their status. Please note that:

·    All timings are indicative and are subject to change.

·    The Waiheke Operations Manager will update the local board in the event of any amendments or changes to the summaries provided for below.

Activity

Update

EV chargers

AT is working on the approval for applications from Vector (on behalf of Electric Island) for the installation of new EV charging stations in Orapiu and Onetangi.

 

Road Maintenance

Programmed works

May works includes routine cyclic maintenance of signs, drains and potholes.

Various Roadworks sites

Man O War Bay Road – ongoing unsealed road improvements

South Pacific Road (Rakino Island) – grading

Onetangi Road - cycle way remarking

Glen Brook Road (Rocky Bay) – retaining wall repair (boat ramp access)

O’Brien Road, Lannan Road, George Street – hotmix overlays – stop/go in place

102 Ostend Road.

Placemakers Corner

Design works are being completed to improve safety at the Placemakers / Ostend Road intersection. Improvements include widening the vehicle entrance into the centre, and provision of new line marking to move vehicles travelling westbound away from the shoulder. The new edge line provides an improved amenity for cyclists traveling westbound up the hill. New “Slow” marking and a VMS sign is planned to be installed at the end of the straight on the approach to the intersection.

The proposal is due to be presented to the ELT for approval at an upcoming meeting.

Te Huruhi School pedestrian crossing

The proposal is for a new pedestrian crossing to be constructed outside the school.

The project is on the ELT agenda for 13th May 2022 and if approved, external consultation will open for public feedback before end of May.

Upon completion of external consultation, the final design will be completed, whereafter procurement of a suitable contractor will take place to undertake the physical works.

Metro Services

Ferry Services

COVID restrictions continued to impact on patronage during March, but numbers held up well partly due to Sculpture on the Gulf.

 

Service performance in March for Fullers360 continued to be impacted by staff availability across all their routes. This was because of general on-board crew shortages.

 

Intersection upgrade - Donald Bruce Rd/Causeway Rd/Alison Rd

 

This project is for the construction of a new roundabout at the Donald Bruce Rd/Causeway Rd/Alison Rd intersection in Surfdale.

Scope of the project includes raised Swedish speed tables, changes to the traffic islands to accommodate new raised zebra crossings, footpath upgrades, pedestrian crossing lighting, and new road markings and signage.

1.         Works commenced on site 11 April.

2.         Traffic flow is now controlled by sensor lights 24/7 with the traffic management    

         setup planned to shift to the next stage.

3.         We acknowledge there were issues with the width of the lanes for bus and truck

         tracking when the fencing was shifted in the first week of May. This was    

         rectified by the contractor after this was brought to our attention and is a lesson  

         learned that will be carried over to the next stages to avoid the issue repeating.  

4.         We are on track to switch over to the second stage in the week of the 23rd May.

         The switchover will be to the Alison Rd / Causeway Rd section. Photos below

         are from the week ending 6 May 2022.
