Major roading project to get under way in Shirley

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 11th January 2018

Roading crews will begin work on reconstructing earthquake damaged North Avon Road in Shirley on Monday 15th January 2018 .

The project will take nine months to complete and will involve rebuilding the footpaths, kerbs and carriageway from Hills Road to North Parade.

Traffic on busy North Avon Road.Some utilities will also be relocated and the stormwater pipes beneath the road repaired.

“The earthquakes left North Avon Road in a pretty poor condition and we’re very conscious that local residents and other Christchurch drivers have had to put up with navigating their way through potholes and uneven surfaces for a number of years now," says Christchurch City Council Acting Transport Planning and Delivery Manager Michael Jacobson.

“We’re eager to get cracking on reconstructing North Avon Road so that we can get the footpaths and roadway in a better condition."

The Council will have contractors and subcontractors working on different sections of the road at the same time - to get the project done as quickly as possible.

“It will not be a phased programme with construction moving across the street at one time," Mr Jacobson says.

“We will be keeping the road open to two-way traffic as much as possible throughout the reconstruction process but there will be no on-street parking while the work is done.

“People will be able to get to the businesses along North Avon Road by foot or they can access their off-street parking via Stanmore Road.

“We know these road works will cause some inconvenience for businesses and residents in the area but we need to get on with this work so we can improve the level of service for all road users," Mr Jacobson says.
