Proposed changes by location

6 months ago

Rangiora

  • The Blue Line would travel between Rangiora and Kaiapoi via Lineside Road instead of via Silverstream.

  • More of Rangiora would be be covered by the Blue Line by extending it to travel along Ashley Street, Kingsbury Avenue, West Belt and River Road.

  • Rangiora would be connected with Woodend, Kaiapoi and Silverstream by the new Rangiora-Silverstream Link.

Kaiapoi

  • The Blue Line would travel via Smith Street instead of Ohoka Road.

  • The 95 would travel to the city during the morning peak hours (about 6.30-8am), and back from the city during the afternoon peak hours (about 2.30-6pm).

  • Kaiapoi would be connected with Silverstream, Woodend and Pegasus by the new Pegasus-Silverstream Link.

  • Kaiapoi would be connected with Silverstream, Woodend and Rangiora by the new Rangiora-Silverstream Link.

  • Silverstream would no longer be covered by the Blue Line, however changes to the the 95 Pegasus-City route, and the proposed new Link services would provide access to Silverstream.

  • The 95 and the proposed new Link services would travel into Sovereign Palms.

  • At off-peak times and during weekends, the proposed Link services would connect passengers to the Blue Line in Kaiapoi’s town centre to travel to the city.

Woodend

  • The 95 would travel through Woodend to the city during the morning peak hours (about 6.30-8am), and back from the city during the afternoon peak hours (about 2.30-6pm).

  • Woodend would be connected with Pegasus, Kaiapoi and Silverstream by the new Pegasus-Silverstream Link.

  • Woodend would be connected with Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Silverstream by the Rangiora-Silverstream Link.

  • To travel to the city outside of peak hours and during weekends, Woodend residents could travel on the proposed link services to Kaiapoi’s town centre, and transfer to the Blue Line.

Pegasus

  • The 95 would travel from Pegasus to the city during the morning peak hours (about 6.30-8am), and back from the city during the afternoon peak hours (about 2.30-6pm).

  • Pegasus would be connected to Woodend, Kaiapoi and Silverstream by the proposed Pegasus-Silverstream Link.

  • To travel to the city outside of peak hours and during weekends, Pegasus residents could travel on the proposed Pegasus-Silverstream Link service to Kaiapoi’s town centre, and transfer to the Blue Line.

Waikuku

  • Waikuku would no longer be serviced by the 95 Pegasus-City service. We understand that this change would impact some existing passengers, however the number of people taking the 95 from Waikuku is unsustainably low – fewer than ten boardings per day across all trips.

  • Because of the low level of usage, we can no longer justify a continuation of the service and are proposing that the resources are utilised elsewhere to offer better services to more people.
