Transport projects approved across Christchurch

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 19th February 2024

A swathe of transport projects have been approved around Christchurch by the local Community Boards.

Shirley intersections

Two Shirley intersections in the top 1 percent of crash prone areas in Christchurch will be revamped to improve safety.

The Waipapa Papanui-Innes-Central Community Board approved changes to the Shirley Road, Warrington Street and Hills Road intersection. During a joint meeting with the Waitai Coastal-Burwood-Linwood Community Board, it also gave the green light to upgrades at the nearby Shirley Road, New Brighton Road, Marshland Road and North Parade intersection.

Shirley, Hills and Warrington work includes a safe speed platform covering the intersection, raised pedestrian crossings on the Shirley Road slip lane, and a new green turning arrow from Hills Road into Warrington Street.  

Changes at the Shirley, Marshland, New Brighton and North Parade intersection include:

  • safe speed platforms on all approaches;
  • the removal of the left slip lane from Shirley Road into Marshland Road; and
  • a new traffic island on New Brighton Road.

Travis Road, Bower Avenue and Rookwood Avenue

Safety improvements have been confirmed for the Travis Road, Bower Avenue and Rookwood Avenue roundabout in New Brighton.

Speed humps and bike sharrow markings (shared bike – car lane) will be added on each approach, the left-turn lane on Travis Road will be removed to increase the footpath width, and larger pedestrian refuge islands will be added.

The Waitai Coastal-Burwood-Linwood Community Board approved the proposal, which was put forward in response to concerns raised by residents.

Bridge Street and Estuary Road Roundabout

The key route in and out of South New Brighton will get a makeover following community reports of feeling unsafe from high speeds and poor visibility.

The Waitai Coastal-Burwood-Linwood Community Board approved Bridge Street and Estuary Road roundabout improvements, which will include new speed humps and bike sharrows, no stopping lines and pedestrian warning signs. Timed parking will also be included for local businesses.

New tactile pavers and cycle holding rails will ensure consistency and accessibility.

Redcliffs Village

Minor safety improvements for the shared pathway through Redcliffs Village have been approved by the Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere-Heathcote Community Board.

The plan includes widening the section of the Coastal Pathway that runs through the area, adding new cycle stands and increasing signage and pavement markings.

The improvements will reduce the risk of vulnerable users being hit by bicycles or scooters using the Coastal Pathway and increase safety. 

The Redcliffs Village is the narrowest section of the Coastal Pathway with current operating businesses. As part of the planned improvements, the shared pathway will be widened at current pinch points to make it safer for all users.

New staggered red markings and “Snail Go Slow” signage will be added to the footpath on Beachville and Main Roads.

Beachville Road will be narrowed at the south end to reduce the speed of vehicles turning off and onto Main Road, increasing safety for pedestrians and cyclists. The planting area on Beachville Road will also be modified.

The car parking and bus stop location will be retained. P120 parking restrictions will be introduced on Main Road and the existing parking ticks will be removed.
