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.

'Tea Break Bill' Passes: Gordon Campbell On Bad Labour Laws And Poor Safety

By co-incidence, one of the prime dangers of the government’s new employment relations law has been underlined by the release of the death and injury statistics among workers at New Zealand ports. These are highly profitable enterprises for the port owners.

The Port of Tauranga for instance, is expecting its current full-year profit to be between $78 million and $83 million and other ports are enjoying similar boom times – but they are also highly dangerous places for the people who work on or around the port premises. At the Port of Tauranga, there have been 26 serious accidents since 2011, and two deaths. More>>
