Traffic update - week starting 5 May, back to school

With school holidays ending, we expect increased traffic volumes as people return to school and work on 5 May.

Christchurch drivers are advised:
Use the Four Aves for cross-town journeys - go around rather than through.
Fitzgerald Ave is a reliable route for north and southbound traffic.
Expect delays on Durham St and Barbadoes St, particularly at peak times.
There will be additional electronic signs placed along Bealey Ave providing forewarning and advice to road users.
Allow extra time for your journey and plan your route – go to http://www.transportforchristchurch.govt.nz/

Alternative routes into the central city:
Colombo St and Manchester St south of Bealey Ave are both available southbound routes into the central city.
Colombo St south of Bealey takes you into the Square.
Manchester St runs southbound through to Moorhouse Ave.
Drivers need to access Manchester St at Bealey Ave from the Fitzgerald Ave/ westbound side. There is no right turn onto Manchester in the eastbound lane currently.

Thanks

Thank you 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.
