With wastewater repairs completed along Peterborough St between Colombo and Madras, SCIRT’s Fletcher team now begins partial road reconstruction and stormwater work. The road will be closed to through traffic, but businesses like Forte Health will have access.

St Asaph St will be reduced to one lane some days as work progresses to the intersections with Madras and Manchester. There is electronic signage advising drivers and cyclists.

Tuam St from Monday will be one way east only between High and Madras Streets. (The block just past C1 Café/ Alice in Videoland).

Madras St (one-way north) is down to one lane in several places up to Bealey Ave until late July.http://strongerchristchurch.govt.nz/work/activity/4997

Barbadoes St (one-way south) has lane closures for final road reconstruction from the river to Melrose St/ south of Bealey Ave. This is the final stage of this infrastructure repair and will take until mid September. See work notice. http://strongerchristchurch.govt.nz/work/activity/5056

Durham St North work is ongoing until 18 July, between Kilmore and Armagh. This one-way south street is also down to a single lane from Salisbury to Hereford St (past the Law Courts/ Provincial Chambers).http://strongerchristchurch.govt.nz/work/activity/4651

South City entranceway off Durham St - use Alcester St (just before Bath St), not Winchcombe (on the northern edge of South City). In another two weeks, Winchcombe will be fully closed for a month, in and out.

TIPS

Use the four avenues for cross-town journeys - go around rather than through.

Use Fitzgerald Ave and Barbadoes St for southbound morning trips.
