Traffic lights at Fendalton/Glandovey intersection

Traffic lights at Fendalton/Glandovey intersection working from Friday

Traffic lights at the intersection of Fendalton and Glandovey roads will start operating on Friday 1 August, weather permitting.

The pedestrian crossing next to Holly Lea on Fendalton Road will also operate from Friday.

Christchurch City Council project manager Kevin Burgess says the traffic lights will cater for the increased traffic movement at the intersection, in particular the right turn from Glandovey Road into Fendalton Road. The signals next to Holly Lea will assist elderly pedestrians to cross Fendalton Road safely.

The upgrade of Fendalton Road is not far from completion. Minor work remains to finish off sections of the central median and small areas of footpath on the northern side of the road are still to be finished and sealed.

Landscape planting along the road is due for completion by October.

The upgrade of Fendalton Road started in September last year and has been constructed in stages. The road works have involved changing Fendalton Road between the railway and Clyde Road from two lanes to four. An upgrade of street lighting and underground services has also been done along this length of the road.

The new road includes a landscaped median, cycle lanes, and visitor parking among the existing trees where possible. The project also includes providing off-street parking to serve the needs of visitors to St Barnabas Church.

Locally based contractor Works Infrastructure is doing the work.
