CCC 2017 December Subs Update
Lighting in Hoon Hay Park so local kids can do basketball practice at night.
https://www.ccc.govt.nz/the-council/consultations-and-submissions/haveyoursay/show/109 Closes 18 December
A simple request to add bicycle parking near to where nighttime users will be able to be in easy sight of it to increase security.
Spokes Canterbury applauds Council for meeting the needs of teens in our neighbourhoods. The local youth basketball league is a great effort.
Please include safe secure cycle parking within clear sight and easy access to those using the courts. Well-lit cycle parking can easily encourage youth to cycle to practice.

Dyers Pass Speed Limit https://www.ccc.govt.nz/the-council/consultations-and-submissions/haveyoursay/show/108
Spokes thanks Council for taking the initiative to make this narrow winding road a bit safer. With more people on bicycles accessing the Port Hills and even more commuting from Lyttleton to Christchurch via Dyers Pass Road this speed limit reduction is required.
Please include signage reminding drivers that they may cross the double yellow lines, when it can be done safely, in order to pass cyclists. Reminding drivers that safe passing requires leaving 1.5 meters between their vehicle and cyclists will also be needed.

This is not a consultation, merely a notice of information, so not on have your say.
Engagement email sent out 29.11 with little detail. This serves the old QE 11 site which is to be two high schools.
Spokes appreciates that Council continues to attempt to develop safe multi modal transport options with limited funds and with carriageway space often at a premium. Spokes recognizes that Council has incorporated cycling in the design of this project. None the less it is a very disappointing missed opportunity to provide the cycle infrastructure required if we are to get parents to let their children ride bikes to school.
As designed this project will find parents continuing to drive children to schools creating more congestion while endangering those who do walk and ride. Shared paths in areas likely to see most users requiring the path simultaneously are not good transport design. The shared path will need to be at least 3.5 meters to comply with Cycle Design Guideline 3.3.3. The cycle lanes are at the minimum requirement of 3.2.3 and should be expanded to 2 meters width.
