The upgrade of Fendalton Road started in September last year. The work has been done in stages with the final landscaping of the road successfully completed last month, within schedule and budget.

Christchurch City Council project manager Kevin Burgess says the upgrade was necessary to meet future traffic needs and to improve the safety of the road.

"A prime objective was to keep, and enhance, the character of the road as the gateway to Christchurch, through landscaping and enhancing the historic sites and buildings."

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.

In the event of rain, the celebration will be held in the church hall.
