Seminar on northern roading report

Seminar on northern roading report

The City Council is holding a seminar for people interested in the traffic consultant’s report on the Northern Roading Options Scoping Study (NROSS). It is being held on Wednesday 12 March at 7pm at the Council’s Papanui Service Centre (cnr Langdons Road and Restell Street). City Councillors and Council staff will outline the report and there will be an opportunity for discussion and questions. CCC Principal Transport Planner Stuart Woods stresses that no decisions have yet been made about the future of roading in north Christchurch. “The Council is still to debate its options and is likely to make a decision in April/May about what to do next,” he says. “This seminar is not part of a formal submission process. It’s another opportunity to make the information about the study available to interested groups and individuals, and for Councillors to hear people’s views.”

The traffic consultant’s report, released in November 2002, examines the 1600 submissions made by the public about the draft roading strategy (NROSS) released for consultation by the City Council, Transit NZ, Environment Canterbury, and Waimakariri and Hurunui district councils. It includes further traffic modelling analysis, which assesses the effects of modifying the draft strategy to address concerns raised during consultation. The report goes on and recommends a way forward.

For those interested in reading the report or the executive summary, both are available from the Civic Offices in Tuam Street and the Council website at www.ccc.govt.nz/NorthernRoadingStudy/Reports/
