Transit appeals Silverdale North variation 52 decision

Published 24 April 2007

Transit NZ is appealing against the Rodney District Council’s Silverdale North variation 52 decision on the basis that it will cause unacceptable congestion without the proper road infrastructure in place to support the new development.

The appeal appears to take exactly the same line Transit adopted in submissions on the variation, which were heard at the end of 2006.

The council adopted the Silverdale North structure plan in May 2004 and put variation 52 out for submissions in December 2005. The variation to the proposed 2000 district plan introduced the special 19 zone at Silverdale North, an area south of the Orewa township & river and running across to the new State Highway 1 motorway from the old highway, now the Hibiscus Coast Highway.

The council decision was sent to submitters at the beginning of March.

Among submissions urging caution with variation 52:

ARTA (the Auckland Regional Transport Authority) said it shouldn’t proceed until there was certainty that the Penlink access across the Weiti River from the south to the Whangaparaoa Peninsula would be implemented, the Wainui/Bankside interchange south-facing ramps are executed and a number of specific road projects are completed – Whangaparaoa Rd 2-laning, Parkway West, the East Coast Rd extension and the Curley Avenue extension
Rodney District Council itself wanted the variation amended to include a staging mechanism allowing 30% (or some other appropriate level) of the full Silverdale North development to proceed until alternative access to Whangaparaoa Peninsula is completed, and contingent on other roading improvements, including south-facing ramps at Bankside Rd
Former district & regional councillor Brian Smith wanted the variation abandoned until Silverdale North was fully integrated with & complimentary to the development of the entire Silverdale area, especially in terms of traffic
Transit NZ wanted the council to defer a decision on the variation until:

there were more specific details & rules to ensure the objective on minimising trip generation could be met,
the feasibility of a proposed new motorway interchange at Wainui Rd was established
the traffic analysis undertaken by Opus is provided to Transit for review
further details of the impact of the variation on the road network are provided, and
additional information as to how the public transport provisions associated with the variation relate to the Northern Busway Project is provided to Transit.

Transit said, in lodging its appeal, the development would have far-reaching adverse traffic effects without adequate road upgrades, and pointed to the council’s own traffic impact study showing significant disruption to Hibiscus Coast Highway.

Transit regional manager Peter Spies said traffic modelling showed that, without the proper road infrastructure, traffic at the Silverdale interchange would queue on the northbound off-ramp on to the motorway, affecting both safety & flow along State Highway 1.

Mr Spies said Transit wanted the development of Silverdale North to be staged, with planned upgrades to the road network completed & operational before each new staged subdivision development: “Without this improvement to the road infrastructure, the consequential delays & safety implications from queues on the mainline motorway will be significantly adverse & unacceptable.”

Mr Spies said Transit supported the full development of Silverdale North, but this required appropriate additional capacity increases in the supporting transport network.

He says Transit had already agreed with the council that some 60% of the development could be put in place with various road upgrades & access linkages. These included the provision of the south-facing motorway ramps, improvement to the Silverdale motorway interchange, a new linkage to Orewa West over the Orewa Estuary and improvements to the Whangaparaoa Rd, Hibiscus Coast Highway, Silverdale & Parkway intersections with State Highway 1.

Mr Spies concluded: “It is not our intention to stifle any of the Silverdale North development as we agree it is necessary for the future economic growth & prosperity of the district.

“However, we see it as our responsibility to ensure that this growth takes place in a managed & sustainable manner that will benefit the Auckland region as a whole. For this reason we expect Rodney District to move forward with Silverdale North in a way that will enable the road infrastructure to support the new development.”
