SCIRT traffic update: schools back first term

SCIRT traffic update week starting 3 February 2014: schools back first term

SCIRT work in 2014, particularly in the central city, means that drivers need to plan ahead and wherever possible avoid peak hours if they are driving through the city’s main arterial cross-city routes.

Leave early, build in time, combine trips wherever possible and expect frequent changes to traffic management on busy arterial routes, is the overriding message from SCIRT and transport planners.

With school children back on Monday, 3 February, drivers need to reassess how long their journeys will take and be aware that cyclists on the road may be new to the journey also. Traffic volumes will increase at peak hours.

Outside the Four Aves
Centaurus Road: Work on the pressure wastewater pipe in the road for most of February, near the new pump station, means there will be Stop/Go traffic management in place, so expect delays or take a different route.

Anzac Drive/ Bexley Road between Pages and Breezes Roads: FromWednesday 5 February, this stretch of Anzac Drive/ Bexley Road will be closed to cars7am to 7pm with trucks escorted through the site. This is a trial closure and the effect on intersections will be monitored over a week to see if it proceeds through to April. Please be ready for changes on Wednesday. The reason for getting this work done now is to make the most of the dry weather so the road can be well sealed before winter.

Anzac Drive/ Travis Road expect a slower journey - lanes narrowed.

Inside the Four Aves – more activity in south-east/ Ferry Road
• Ferry Road at Moorhouse Ave and Fitzgerald Ave/ Moorhouse - changes to traffic management over this week, watch for signs.
• Colombo St north of Moorhouse, south of South City - one-way southbound only continues.
• St Asaph St expect a slower route.
• Barbadoes, Durham, Tuam, Montreal reduced lanes in places.
• Park Terrace - continuing southbound only between Kilmore and Armagh.

For more information on a particular route, go to www.strongerchristchurch.govt.nz and put the street name in the search box.

Gordon Campbell: On The Budget

It may seem like Oliver to be so bold as to ask the Finance Minister for more gruel – but what the Dickens, Steven Joyce… is this Budget really as good as it gets?

Supposedly, the public was going to receive significant rewards – an election year lolly scramble no less – for the eight years of belt tightening that they’ve endured, and for the rundown of essential public services.

Well, what Budget 2017 delivered instead in Education and in Health were allocations barely sufficient to maintain the current levels of service delivery More>>
