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.

Traffic heading towards Cranford St will be detoured onto Philpotts Road, Knowles St, Nancy Ave and back onto Innes Road. This work was originally scheduled to be carried out during the school holidays, however bad weather meant that it had to be delayed.

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.
Safety is our number one priority – safety is your responsibility too. Be on the lookout for changed traffic conditions – such as temporary speed limits, detours, hazards or changed lanes.

    Gordon Campbell: On lessons for Labour from the UK election
    If the polls were right – and the pollsters kept telling us how accurate they’d been in 2010, and even Nate Silver was getting the same results – there seemed no way that the British Labour Party could lose last Thursday’s British election. With Labour predicted to win around 270 seats and the Scottish National Party batting around 55-60 seats, Labour seemed to be home free. But…as we now know, things didn’t turn out that way. Labour ended up with 232 seats and the Conservatives swept back to power with an outright majority, after winning only a little more than a third ( 36.9%) of the votes cast.MORE >>
