Have your say on transport

Pedestrian access key to new city

Cera is calling for Christchurch residents to have their say on the city's transport plan before the consultation period ends next Friday.

The plan, An Accessible City, focuses on how people travel into and out of the city, and how the streets will look after the rebuild.

At this stage, the draft development calls for pedestrian only areas and a new 30kph speed limit within the central city.

The plan comes after the city council's award-winning Share an Idea campaign which resulted in a draft central city plan. It also builds on the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan released last year, which did not yet include transport plans.

The An Accessible City draft chapter can be viewed on the CCDU website at www.ccdu.govt.nz.

Submissions can be made online by visiting the CCDU website, or by downloading a printable submission form from the website which can be posted to the CCDU.

Submission forms can also be obtained from Christchurch City Council offices and libraries and posted to the CCDU.

Residents have until 5pm February 1 to contribute their ideas.
