Action plan targets Richmond-Shirley road repairs

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 9th May 2018

Christchurch City Council will make a concerted push over the coming months to fix damaged roads and footpaths in the Shirley and Richmond areas.

“Our transport team have been out in the Shirley/Richmond area in the past two weeks and have done an assessment of the streets and footpaths in the area bordered by North Avon Road, Hills Road, Shirley Road and North Parade," says Council Transport Planning and Delivery Manager Lynette Ellis.

Road works in a street in Richmond.“They’ve been looking at the condition of all the roads, channels and footpaths in that area and assessing what needs to be done. We are now putting together a plan of action so that we can get back to the community in the coming weeks with a schedule of roading and footpath works.

“We know the condition of some of the roads and footpaths has been a source of ongoing frustration for residents in the area and we are committed to addressing the problem," Ms Ellis says.

The Shirley/Richmond area was badly affected by the earthquakes. Some of the roads and footpaths have also been impacted by the Dudley Creek flood remediation works.

Council Land Drainage Manager Keith Davison says all the Dudley Creek contractors will be out of the area by the end of August.

“The Dudley Creek flood mitigation works, which included the building of a piped bypass down Randall and Medway Streets, are largely complete and have reduced the risk to all houses in the Flockton area that were previously at risk of frequent above floor flooding.

“We have also done work to increase the capacity of St Albans Creek to reduce the flood risk upstream around the eastern edge of Edgeware Road.

“It has been a big, complex job and we really appreciate the patience the community has shown while we’ve done this work," Mr Davison says.

The work to increase the capacity of St Albans Creek between Stapletons Road and Slater Street is due to be completed by the end of July, at which point Slater Street will be re-opened.

“The Council has decided to re-programme the St Albans Creek work between Slater Street and Hills Road. We are still committed to doing this work. Once we have all the permissions we need, we will go back to the Council and ask them to approve a new contract," Mr Davison says.
