Bus route recommendation goes to Council

posted 25 Feb 2015, 14:57 by CPCA Secretary   [ updated 25 Feb 2015, 16:56 ]

The ongoing saga of the Churton Park bus service passed a significant milestone when the report detailing the proposed routes was presented to Greater Wellington Regional Council on 25 February.

This is the outcome of the community surveys, workshops and community consultations.

The final proposal is a modification of Option C detailed in the consultation brochure. This includes a 30 minute service all day to and from the CBD through the centre of the suburb and extending into Stebbings valley, supplemented by a 30 minute loop service to Johnsonville, extending further west into Churton Park. This supplementary service will run to and from the CBD in the peak periods.

There will be additional services on both routes in peak periods.

Your Association representatives made strong representations on the earlier proposals at the GW political level, and gained some concessions over coverage and bus frequencies.

The following links will take you to the appropriate GW reports.

Following the adoption of the routes, your Association representatives will be requesting GW that they be fully involved in reviewing the actual timetables and location of bus stops.

The new routes and timetables are scheduled to come into operation in 2017

In addition we will be continue to pressurise GW to make provision for the buses which connect Johnsonville with Tawa, Kenepuru Hospital, Whitireia Polytech and Porirua also service the Churton Park Village.

The Association would like to thank all who made submissions on the consultation proposals. The number of submissions received by GW indicated to them the importance of this issue to the residents of Churton Park.
