    Type: Consent Notification

    (Click on this link to read a copy of the applications: www.ecan.govt.nz/nap)

     

    Environment Canterbury has received applications for resource consents for the New Zealand Transport Agency’s Northern Arterial and QEII Drive 4-laning project and the Christchurch City Council’s Northern Arterial Extension, Cranford Street upgrade and Cranford Stormwater area.

     

    Applicant: NZ Transport Agency
    Address for service: C/- Opus International Consultants Ltd, PO Box 1482, Christchurch 8011 Attn: Stephanie Brown

     

    The NZ Transport Agency has applied to Environment Canterbury for resource consents for a variety of activities associated with the construction and operation of:

    a)    A new 4-lane motorway to connect QEII Drive and the Northern Motorway at Chaneys, and the upgrade of the Northern Motorway northbound as far as Tram Road, including an additional lane on the Waimakariri River bridge (the “Northern Arterial”); and

    b)    The upgrade of part of QEII Drive to 4-lane median-divided road from Main North Road to east of the Innes Road roundabout (the “QEII Drive 4-Laning”).

    The resource consents applied for are:

    CRC150789: A water permit to temporarily and permanently divert surface waterways, to take groundwater for the purpose of site dewatering, and permanently divert water via land-drainage. The diversions of surface waterways will include temporary and intermittent partial diversions of the Waimakariri River due to the installation of gravel access causeways to allow bridge widening to be undertaken. The Waimakariri River diversions are expected to occur over a  two year period. Best practise measures will be used to minimise sediment discharge and effects on fish during the works. Land-drainage will be installed to protect structures from high groundwater. The consent duration requested for temporary diversions of waterways, and take of groundwater for dewatering is 13 years. The consent duration requested for permanent diversion of groundwater via land-drainage is 35 years. 

    CRC150790: A water permit to dam and divert floodwaters impounded against the Northern Arterial embankment, in the event of a flood in the Waimakariri River resulting in a breach of its stopbanks. The duration requested is 35 years.

    CRC150791: A discharge permit to discharge construction phase stormwater, dewatering water, and sediment onto land and into water during the construction of the Northern Arterial and QEII Drive 4-Laning. Sediment laden water and dewatering water generated will be minimised where possible and treated using best practise methods. The duration requested for these activities is 13 years.

    CRC150792: A discharge permit to discharge stormwater into land and water on an ongoing basis from the developed Northern Arterial and QEII Drive 4-Laning. Stormwater from the completed road may contain metals, hydrocarbons and sediment.  Stormwater will be treated in first flush basins or swales, and will not increase flooding for rainfall events up to a 1 in 50 year rainfall event. Stormwater from the additional lane across  the Waimakariri Bridge will be discharged without treatment as currently occurs for the existing four lanes. The duration requested is 35 years.

    CRC150793: A land use consent to use land for excavation, installation of piles and bores, and to clear vegetation adjacent to waterways. This will include excavation for the construction of foundations, river crossings, and underpasses. These excavations may intercept groundwater. Bores will be installed so that dewatering can be undertaken. The duration requested for these activities is 13 years.

    CRC150794: A land use consent to install structures in or over the beds of rivers, including permanent stormwater outfalls, temporary and permanent culverts, a permanent bridge over the Styx River, permanent new road lane platform over the existing structures of the Northern Motorway Waimakariri Bridge, and temporary gravel accessway causeways in the Waimakariri River. Also to remove vegetation from the beds of rivers, and disturb the beds of rivers. Vegetation removal and disturbance of rivers will be minimised where possible, and vegetation will be re-planted. Fish passage will be retained where possible. The duration requested for these activities is 13 years.

    The Christchurch City Council has also received Notices of Requirement for these projects. These notices are all being notified concurrently.

    c)    Earthworks to provide for compensatory stormwater storage as a result of the Northern Arterial Extension (the “Cranford Stormwater Area”).

    The resource consents applied for are:

    CRC151942: A land use consent to excavate and disturb land over a confined aquifer and adjacent to surface waterways (including the Upper Dudley Creek Diversion, Tysons Drain, Winters Road Drain, Croziers Drain, Cranford Street West Drain, Cranford Street East Drain, and private farm drains), for the purposes of constructing stormwater and land drainage features and systems for the Northern Arterial Extension and Cranford Street Upgrade, and earthworks to provide for stormwater storage in the Cranford Stormwater Area.  The activities may intercept groundwater.  A 35-year duration has been requested.

    CRC151943: A discharge permit to discharge water and contaminants (principally stormwater and sediment) to water, and to land in circumstances where it may enter surface water and groundwater, during both  the construction and operational phases of  the Northern Arterial Extension and the Cranford Street Upgrade, and associated stormwater  works in the Cranford Stormwater Area.  A 35-year duration has been requested.

    CRC151944: A water permit to: (a) temporarily take, dam and divert surface water and groundwater for the purposes of facilitating construction of the Northern Arterial Extension and Cranford Street Upgrade, and undertaking earthworks in the Cranford Stormwater Area, and; (b) permanently dam and divert surface water during flooding as a result of establishment of the Northern Arterial Extension.  A 35-year duration has been requested.
