Community Services Committee - 14 May 2019 - Open Minutes

Agenda Items

 

1.    Iron Maori Event - Hardinge Road and Marine Parade Proposed Road Closures

Type of Report:

Operational

Legal Reference:

N/A

Document ID:

730705

Reporting Officer/s & Unit:

Sera Chambers, Transportation Team Administrator

Kevin Murphy, Event Manager

 

1.1   Purpose of Report

To seek approval for the proposed course change and proposed road closures for the Iron Māori event to be held in 2019 and future years.

 

At the Meeting

The Team Leader Transportation spoke to the report and noted that the Iron Māori event organisers have raised the proposed changes with Council early to be able to communicate how they are managing the risk of Pandora Pond with their athletes as soon as possible. This report is required to gauge Council’s comfort level with the proposed road closures prior to going out for consultation, which may result in further fine tuning of the event in certain areas. 

It was clarified that that closure along Marine Parade is incorrectly shown on the map provided as the closure will only apply to the seaward side of the road.

In response to questions from Councillors the following points were clarified:

·         Consultation will be undertaken with businesses and residents in relation to the proposed road closures. Access restrictions during the road closures will form part of the consultation.

·         The whole course is changing from previous years. The safest place for the athletes to complete the swim leg is along Hardinge Road; the exit and cycle route down Marine Parade is less problematic than the second option of Bridge Street out to Prebensen Drive.

·         The proposed road closures are the same as those for the Harbour to Hills Triathlon and will also apply to the other events mentioned in the report.

·         The length and duration of the road closures for the childrens’ events will be shorter.

 

 

 

 

Committee's recommendation

That Council:

a.     Note the proposed course change and road closures for the Iron Māori event and other events.

b.     Approve the road closures noting that the event traffic management plan may be modified to account for feedback obtained through the targeted consultation by the event management.

c.     That a DECISION OF COUNCIL is required urgently as planning is being undertaken now for events and marketing promotion will soon be underway.

 

 

Council Resolution

That Council:

a.     Note the proposed course change and road closures for the Iron Māori event and other events.

b.     Approve the road closures noting that the event traffic management plan may be modified to account for feedback obtained through the targeted consultation by the event management.
