ROADWORKS ON RICCARTON ROAD especially between Harakeke Street and Matipo Street

CENTRAL RICCARTON RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION INC submission for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting on 27 February 2018 at which this item was considered.

Given the disastrous impact of the roadworks along Riccarton Road, west of Hagley Park, still unfinished after a year and a half of serious disruption, we see in prospect a similar situation developing between Harakeke and Matipo Streets.  There is little in the staff report to suggest otherwise. 

Our submission is as follows:

  1. All businesses and any residents along and near this route must be made aware of these additional works in prospect so reasoned submissions can be made.   This has NOT yet happened.   The extent to which these works will cause disruption to traffic along Riccarton Road and the expected impact on businesses has NOT been well quantified.  It needs to be quantified.


  1. Once started the work must be completed quickly to a published timetable.  With that in mind more consultation is required (particularly with businesses). Our Association believes that only Option 6 together with the implementation of Variation 1 (working 24/7) is viable.


  1. Residential streets in the area need protection while work is underway.  To that end, the council need to actively prevent traffic from using non-designated detours into residential streets.

(Our submission  was almost exactly the same as that of the Riccarton Kilmarnock Residents’ Association Inc which covers the area north of Riccarton Road.)

Further information from CRRA Inc on the Riccarton Road Upgrade – (The 3 Waters Project)

Presented orally by CRRA Inc at the Community Board meeting

  1. Notification to residents and businesses – P37 of the meeting document states that “For local residents and businesses the focus will be on timely communications, face-to-face engagement, methods to minimise business disruption and efforts to activate the area to offset more limited access”.

The CRRA submission is that the stated communication strategy has not taken place.

The CRRA has commenced a survey of the businesses in the Riccarton Road asking the following questions:

  1. Have you been contacted by the Council regarding the sewer upgrade in Riccarton Road?
  2. What was your response when you were contacted?
  3. Do you have concerns as to whether your business will survive months of disruption?
  4. Have you any other feedback?

Of the 23 business surveyed so far, 22 answered No.  The one business that stated yes to contact from the Council was the High Street Medical Centre. 

When told the construction period was originally estimated at 26 months, one business owner said “that’s ludicrous.  I understand it could be months but not 26 months! Residents and businesses will become the collateral damage.  No customers no business.  What accountability does the council put in the contract for the contractors to meet specific deadlines? I am a small business owner/operator.  I have invested a huge amount of capital.  Hundreds of thousands of dollars.  I have no safety net.  I feel as a business rate payer the Council has to act efficiently.  The impact is huge for everybody – it needs to be set up efficiently to minimise the collateral damage.”

We have yet to interview the manager of the newly opened Nobanna restaurant. It will be interesting whether the consenting process included information about the disruption and the barriers his customers will face.

  1. Time frame for the proposed disruption – how is the impact on the businesses measured? During the earthquake businesses which had business interruption insurance were able to claim as the premises of the business were damaged.  When there is no damage to the premises and the lack of customers is due to there being no parking or easy access into the premises, will that qualify for insurance companies to be paying business interruption insurance?

The report identifies Riccarton Road as one of the busiest roads and transport corridors in the city. We have questions for the Board to consider following Stage 1:

    • Why did it take so long?
    • What went wrong?
    • Why was the work so poorly executed for Stage 1?  Poorly executed in that it is still not finished – the road is in a terrible state. Did the outcomes of the contract not include a well formed road?
    • What improvements have been made to ensure Stage 2 is efficient? How can we be assured it will be effectively managed to prevent months extending to years of disruption for residents, businesses, motorists and visitors?
    • If we compare the time-frame for the seriously damaged Kaikoura coast road and what was achieved in 11 months surely Riccarton residents and businesses can expect a shorter time-frame for this project?
    • Is the Council being generous in not setting firm deadlines because they don’t know what might be discovered when holes are dug?  What has been learnt from Stage 1 of the process to ensure what lurks beneath has been identified?
    • The budget for the upgrade does seem insignificant compared to the cycle ways which do not have the complexity of engineering required for this project.
    • Both Catherine Chu and Helen Broughton stated in their election pamphlets concerns for the intensified living/density of population, traffic and parking congestion for Riccarton.  What are our elected representatives doing to ensure this very major disruption is efficiently and effectively managed?  What is the plan to manage the impact on daily life if already there are stresses from intensified living, traffic and parking congestion for Riccarton residents?
    • Night work will cause noise and added disruption for residents.  However if it results in a much shorter time-frame for the project and it is well-notified in advance we will survive. Unlike the detrimental effect of long delays on businesses.
  1. It is one of the busiest roads and transport corridors in the City. Where is the traffic management Plan? 
    • What will be the impact on residential roads?
    • Where will the buses be re-routed?  Is there money in the budget to repair the residential roads damaged by re-routing buses and heavy traffic?
    • How will residential streets that are not the official alternative be protected from motorists looking for alternative ways round the disruption?
    • Will the traffic management plan be circulated for consultation?
    • Will maps showing access and parking for the various businesses be available?  How will people learn about the parking in behind the businesses on Riccarton Road?
    • There cannot be one size fits all.  The traffic management plan must inform customers of all their options for access and parking within reach of the small businesses or there will be no customers.

In conclusion:

The Board must ensure the Council employs contractors who can complete the project to set deadlines in the shortest time-frame possible.  The community and businesses cannot survive a disruption that takes years. The longer it takes the more soul and business destroying it will be.  The Government has pledged to move people out of poverty.  This project seems likely to bankrupt businesses and therefore put more people into poverty.  Business owners cannot sustain a business with no customers.  Business closures on the Riccarton Road cannot not be an outcome of this project.

Or will the death knell for businesses be when all street parking is removed to create the cycle and bus lanes and make room for trees?

A written reply was received from the Board as follows: 

The Board decided to recommend that the Council resolve:

1. The combined project approach for the Bus Priority Scheme and the Underground Pipe Upgrade on Riccarton Road continues from Harakeke Street to Matipo Street to the end of construction prescribing either Option 5 or 6, with variations where appropriate, as outlined in clause 4.7 of the staff report.

2.  To note that post the infrastructure repairs, the Riccarton Road Corridor Plan as fully consulted on in 2015, will be implemented.

3.  To request that the infrastructure repairs be carried out as quickly as possible and for ongoing communications to occur between affected residents and businesses; it being noted that the local community is requesting that the works be carried out as much as possible during evening/night time hours.

4. To request that the Project Team engage with the Riccarton Bush/Kilmarnock Residents’ Association and Central Riccarton Residents’ Association before the works commence and take all practical steps to minimise traffic diverting onto adjoining residential streets.

5. To request that the Project Team communicate regularly on project progress with the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board.

Calling all knitters: Woollens needed for newborn babies

Christchurch Women’s Hospital is short of knitted woollen items for newborn babies and has put out an ‘SOS’ for help. Anyone who can assist can drop off items to the hospital’s Birthing Suite (Level 3), Maternity (Level 5), or to CWH Midwife Mary Campbell on the ground floor in Fetal Medicine. Items must be wool – not acrylic. Knitted articles are given to families who don’t have them in their hospital bag. Some forget to bring layers for their baby, others just don’t have any, or the babies are too big or too small for the clothes they have brought.

Mary Campbell is also organising an evening at Knit World Christchurch and invites staff members and the public to come along and knit for the hospital to replenish their stores.

Date and Time: Tuesday 24th April 2018, from 6 to 8.30pm.
