Thanks for all the comments so far. Here are a couple more images which might answer some questions and may create some more. The first image is looking from the North-east side towards the Carillon, which shows conceptually how the levels work. This corner will need more design (obviously) especially regarding the structures underneath, but the drawing shows how the levels work.
In particular this last image engages with the discussion of the south-east corner school bus movements. The intention is that this quadrant is park with a drive to access Government House and adjacent schools. Space near Adelaide Rd (in the far left side of this image) is to provided for school buses. This proposal identifies the car sales yard as a potential space to accommodate bus movements.
We’ve made a model to make it easier for everyone to understand how Option X works. Below is a photo. The model will be taken to all the public meetings about Option X. So far the scheduled meetings are as follows:
Monday 15 August, 7.30pm, Newtown Hall, Daniell Street (opposite Mediterranean Warehouse)
Tuesday 16 August, 8am at Newtown Network Centre, by the Branch Library in Constable St
Wednesday 17 August, 7.30pm at St Joseph’s Church, Ellice St
Monday 22 August, 7pm in the Mt Cook School Hall, Tory St
Keep the discussion coming.
