Public consultation for Christchurch's draft transport plan ended on Friday and a Labour Party MP hopes lengthy disputes over funding won't stall its progress.
The plan for the earthquake-damaged central city proposes lower speed limits and changes to one-way streets, while giving greater priority to pedestrians and cyclists.
Labour's Christchurch Transport Issues spokesperson Megan Woods says the upgrade of Auckland's transport fell victim to in-fighting and hopes that won't happen in Christchurch.
Ms Woods says the final plan has to be delivered to the Cabinet some time in March when costings will be looked at.
She believes funding should have been addressed much earlier and hopes negotiations between the Government and the Christchurch City Council won't hold things up.
