Local Board Views on Takanini Crossings Project Notices of Requirement from Auckland Transport

 

Resolution number PPK/2023/211

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson J Robinson, seconded by Member G Hawkins:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)                 provide the following views on two the Notices of Requirement for the Takanini Level Crossings:

i)             support grade separation as a priority to ensure the efficient operation of the roading and rail network

ii)            express concern that only having a pedestrian bridge over Manuroa Road will divide the local community and make shops and businesses on Manuroa Road and in the Gateway Shopping Centre on the corner of Manuroa and Great South Roads, difficult to access

iii)           express concern that the bridge on Walters Road is the most disruptive option for the surrounding community and property owners, and request that the commissioners scrutinise this option rigorously to ensure this provides the best  environmental and community outcome rather than just financial outcome

iv)           request that a public information campaign to engage the community in understanding the reasons for the decision is initiated after the decision to address the inevitable concerns in the community arising as a result

b)      appoint Chairperson Brent Catchpole to speak to the local board views at a hearing on the Notices of Requirement

c)      delegate authority to the chairperson of the Papakura Local Board to make a replacement appointment in the event the local board member appointed in resolution (b) is unable to attend the Notices of Requirement hearing.
