Christchurch's new central city transport plan is an urban planner’s dream.
Whether it will work well remains to be seen.
It does away with one-way traffic on Lichfield St, Salisbury and Kilmore Sts, slows traffic to 30km an hour in the central business district, and gives pedestrians and cyclists pre-eminence.
There will be more bus transport and car parking buildings in secondary locations behind shops.
As usual with all its civic projects, the Central Christchurch development unit of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority refuses to disclose the costs it will dictate to ratepayers.
CERA has yet to provide information on the finances of civic projects sought by NBR ONLINE in an Official Information Act request from more than three months ago – a blatant breach of the statutory timeframe required in the legislation.
More details on the plan will be outlined in next week’s issue of NBR NZ Property Investor.
