AT berm parking. Ak Transport have a legal opinion that they cannot stop people parking on the berm. This is not the case in other place in NZ so we think they have a bad legal opinion. The meeting agree to spend up to $1000 on getting another legal opinion that negates the AT position.
The Lime e-scooter are being updated with a new version that is faster and heavier. We stil think they should not be used on the footpath.
We spoke about the Ak Transport speed reduction programme. The Shane Ellison (CEO AT) meeting. Lime scooter, we need to put out a statement. The Ponsonby old Post Office restaurant is using public seating for their out door tables. This is not on and Andy will chat with Max Wilde.
Andy presented the accounts for last year. We spent $112 on hall hire, $200 on website and LSA subs, $860 on the Walk to Work free breakfast and $500 on the Beat the Traffic audit. We had income of $1500 for the Beat the Traffic audit. Total for the year a loss of $273. We have $4005 in the bank. Andy we reappointed as coordinator for the coming year. Graeme as the other bank signatory.
Kathryn King canceled our meeting the day before it so we will request another.
Lime scooter had hit the streets and are using footpaths, cycleway and road.
We had an update on 354 Ponsonby rd Civic Space.
There are Ak Transport funds available to Local Boards for safety projects.
Finding myself alone, I phoned Mike Mellor who has been to meetings in Wellington representing Living Streets. He also went to the NLTP launch, in Wellington as I in Auckland, where we meet with NZTA board members Micheal Stianssy, Dame Fran Wilde and managers Fergus Gammie, Brett Glideon and Steve Mutton. We both pointed out that the Walking and Cycling programme contains only shared paths. The solution is for both the Local Government and NZTA to put projects into the programme to gain the FAR. LSA will encourage this.
Since adoption the Board has commenced working through the many actions (to the rear of the document). Much of this pre-dates my time with the Board, so Pippa will be able to provide a fuller picture (currently on leave until mid-July). Not exhaustive but so far:
254 Ponsonby Road detailed design and advocacy for funding (this LTP)
Western Park Development Plan
Some Western Park improvements
Parking Management Plan
The pedestrian improvement project
Many of the Unitary Plan actions
Franklin road upgrade
40km speed limit
The Anglesea St pocket park
Moving forward the Board has asked Plans and Places to look at the Rose Road Plaza design, but have not had any formal advice. This is expected before the FY19 work programmes are finalised in two weeks.
Where are the Red Light Cameras and when do they go live?
Auckland’s six new red light safety cameras will begin enforcing 21 June 2018.
Calibration is complete on the six cameras, which were delivered to Auckland and installed in late 2017.
The cameras are owned, and maintained, by Auckland Transport and NZ Police is responsible for their enforcement.
The six cameras are in the following intersections:
Lincoln Road/ Swanson Road,
Lincoln Road/ Te Pai Place,
Albany Highway/Oteha Valley Road,
Great North Road/ Karangahape Road,
Blockhouse Bay Road/ New North Road
Esmonde Road/ Fred Thomas Drive.
The Amora Hotel footpath on Grays Ave needs bollards to stop vehicles using it.
