Major road works on Bealey Avenue and Montreal Street

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 3rd May 2017

A $5 million project to resurface and reconstruct parts of Bealey Ave and Montreal St is about to get under way.

The project is part of the ongoing work Christchurch City Council is doing to repair and maintain the city’s roads following the completion of the SCIRT rebuild programme.

A significant part of SCIRT’s rebuild programme focused on repairing water and waste pipes buried under the roads. In many cases the roads were made safe and functional, then patched.

Cars travelling along Montreal Street.The Council is now working through a programme to reseal and smooth those roads, focusing first on the central city and eastern suburbs.

“The work that is planned on Bealey Avenue and Montreal Street is part of this programme and will be done in sections to try and minimise the disruption to motorists," said Council City Streets Maintenance Manager Mark Pinner.

“The contractor, Fulton Hogan, will have crews working in shifts, day and night, so that they can get the work completed as soon as possible. Our aim is to have all the works done by the end of June," Mr Pinner said.

The Montreal Street work will focus on the stretch of road between Cambridge Terrace and Armagh Street and will be done in four stages. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained along Montreal Street throughout the resurfacing work, to keep traffic flowing.

On Bealey Avenue work will be undertaken on the northern side of the road from its intersection with Papanui Road to its intersection with Barbadoes Street. Again the work will be staged and two lanes of traffic maintained throughout.

“Signs will be posted to alert drivers of lane closures and any detours. Our number one priority is safety and we would really urge road users to adhere to the signs and to the temporary speed limits that will be in place.

“We know that these road works will cause some inconvenience but we urge you to show patience and cooperation when using the road so that we can get this essential work done quickly and safely," Mr Pinner said.
