There are always loads of pedestrians at that intersection, and it can be frustrating waiting a long time if your train is about to leave Britomart. If they made more of the crossings work like the Victoria St and Wellesley St intersections on Queen Street it would be a easy way to significantly reduce the travel time for 1000s of commuters
I second this one. This intersection timing is far too long for the number of pedestrians that cross it. The footpaths get clogged with people waiting.
I would add:
- Improve Newmarket station square (maybe not so quick - a lot of work needs to be done.) Some of it could be done fast i.e. nicer signage. this would also promote New market station.
- Add some rain shelter (as long as it is visually appealing) to the traffic island at the corner of broadway and remurea road. It sucks waiting for the pedestrian light if it rains.
- Get Real Time PID's working on the rail network
-Introduce a Britiomart "station"/fare paid area for the NEX to speed up boarding
-Introduce a $1 or $2 a day fee for the NEX park and rides to get people use to the idea that park and ride isn't going to always be free.
-Introduce some kind of incentive for TM's who have the best on time stats (without getting complaints).
-Some kind of emissions standards for buses entering the CBD. Some buses are really smokey. This makes PT look bad.
- Plan a oil price spike action plan, for how they will handle a massive Increase in both demand and costs if (/when?) oil spikes to $200+ a barrel in the near future
- Common stop for buses heading out of the city certain ways (make it easy to transfer from a ferry or eastern train to a bus to Grafton for the hospital)
- Kiosks in Britomart running the same journey planner that is on the Maxx website. (perhaps other staffed rail stations too)
- More weekend capacity on the western line.
