SCIRT update – Easter weekend 2014

SCIRT update – Easter weekend 2014

SCIRT work sites will close over the Easter break, but traffic management will remain in place around sites and equipment.

Please bear in mind the next two weeks are the school holidays so watch out for cyclists and pedestrians. Major routes should be less congested as a result.


Visiting the central city over Easter
• North and south – Fitzgerald Ave
• East and west – Bealey and Moorhouse Aves
• Park Terrace has also reopened to north bound traffic from Kilmore St
• Durham, Montreal, Barbadoes and Madras Streets will be free flowing in off peak hours.
• Barbadoes St will open up to two lanes again, between Lichfield and St Asaph, and between Chester St East and Armagh St.
• The Colombo St bridge is now open near the Town Hall. http://strongerchristchurch.govt.nz/article/colombo-st-bridge-near-town-hall-reopens-to-traffic-before-easter

New work after Easter/ before Anzac weekend

Innes Road, Mairehau, one way Tuesday
Innes Road will be one-way, towards Hills Road, between Nancy and Kensington Aves next week, Tuesday, 22 April, for a day or so, depending on the weather. Traffic coming towards Cranford St will be detoured onto Philpotts Road, Knowles St, Nancy Ave and back onto Innes Road. http://strongerchristchurch.govt.nz/work/activity/4698

Bealey Ave at Manchester St, one lane Thursday
Bealey Ave will be one lane only at the Manchester St intersection for eastbound drivers on Thursday 24 April. There will be further off peak work at this intersection until the end of May so be prepared for delays. Drivers will not be able to cross Bealey Ave at Manchester St.

Thanks to everyone for being patient as SCIRT crews make progress city-wide, and to everyone who continues to go the extra mile to support their local retailers.

Christchurch Fires: Friday Morning Update

Slightly cooler weather conditions and higher humidity with some light rain having fallen early this morning is welcome relief for emergency services fighting the Port Hills fire in Christchurch..

It has been a quiet night with a few minor flare ups contained by fire crews. Thermal imaging is being used to identify hot spots. There is a lot of work to do to clean up the whole fire area and this will go on for several days.

Te Hapua Welfare Centre remains open with a small amount of people staying there. Nga Hau E Wha Marae and the Selwyn welfare centre have been closed. Police cordons are still in place and these areas are still considered dangerous. The situation is being constantly reassessed and we will provide further information as soon as it is available.
