A)   support for return of the direct Half Moon Bay to Middlemore bus service.

B)   request extension of 72X to capture Half Moon Bay, Farm Cove etc.

C)   request extension of 705 to capture Cockle Bay.

D)   request investigation into a Beachlands to Howick via Whitford Road service (potentially by extending 739) noting the high and continuous public demand for better public transport connections.

E)   note that the Ormiston Road interchange becomes critical and the design and operation of this could make/break the experience for transfers.

iv)           in regard to actions:

A)   support the proposed weekly cap, noting the potential positive impact on encouraging people to use public transport more frequently.

B)   support extending the transfer window from 30 minutes to 45 minutes to acknowledge that not all transfers occur within the shorter timeframe, often at no fault of the passenger.

C)   support the use of bus booster (priority for buses, especially late) which has been shown during pilots to remove wait times by approximately 1/3.

v)            in regard to the alignment with the Local Board Plan

A)   advocate for the retention of the Local Board Transport Capital Fund.

B)   support for more feeder bus services or other innovative on demand services that will enable the community to access the existing bus / ferry networks, specifically to meet delayed ferries, and coordinate with late arrival ferries.

C)   support more bus services to serve all areas of the local board, but particularly the fast growing areas of Flat Bush and Ormiston.

D)   support for more provision of more ferry and train services, as well as express bus services.

vi)           in regard to Policies, Monitoring, Evaluation and Review

A)   request that ongoing monitoring of usage and need to ensure that services continue to meet the demands of the public.

vii)         in regard to other matters:

A)   note that there was feedback from locals requesting that the changes be accelerated where possible.

B)   note the need for increased public safety in and around public transport – increasing the number of CCTV cameras on buses and in stations; increasing Public Transport Officers on buses to provide physical safety.

C)   note the need for driver safety – rolling out driver screens to provide physical safety for drivers.

D)   note that there is no mention of enhancing cyclist access to public transport to mitigate the lack of continuous cycleways within the network (e.g. bike racks on front of buses similar to Christchurch, Wellington and other international cities).

Resolution number HW/2023/201

MOVED by Chairperson D Light, seconded by Member A White:  

That the Howick Local Board:

a)            note the following inaccuracies in the report:

iii)           That Auckland Transport’s funding commitment the Aviemore to Botany Shared path is actually $ 464,950 instead of the $ 357,988 reported in Paragraph 16 a) a.

b)            authorise Auckland Transport to allocate a total of $ 2,097,955 from the Local Board Transport Capital Fund 2022-2025 as follows:

i)             $ 7,000 from the Local Board Transport Capital Fund to fund the remaining value of the project of The Parade Traffic Calming and Pedestrian Improvements

ii)            release of $16,434 from the Local Board Transport Capital Fund to fund the remaining value of the project of Aviemore to Botany Shared Path.

iii)           Bradbury Road Traffic Calming - $ 350,000.

e)            noting Auckland Transport’s commitment of $ 1,253,871 delivers a total work programme of $3,351,826. This commitment includes the following projects either completely or partially funded by Auckland Transport:

i)             The Parade Traffic Calming and Pedestrian Improvements – Partially funded $ 594,350 by Auckland Transport but with an additional $ 7,000 from the current Local Board Transport Capital Fund.

ii)            Aviemore to Botany Shared Path – Partially funded $464,550 by Auckland Transport but with an additional $16,434 from the current Local Board Transport Capital Fund.

g)            note that the Howick Local Board is extremely disappointed and frustrated by the delay in receiving this report and the errors contained within. The delays have impacted the delivery of the planned projects which are mostly safety related. In particular this has contributed to issues with the Bucklands Beach Safety Improvement project which has created significant angst for local residents and the Board. These issues have damaged the credibility of both Auckland Transport and the Howick Local Board, impacting the partnership that we have been trying to build. We require a significant improvement in communication, transparency, and responsiveness over the rest of this term.
