Paremuka Bridge opens new route through City

The opening of the Paremuka Bridge on Friday at 10am will open up a new route through the City, bringing relief to rush hour motorists in the Swanson area.

The bridge will help ease traffic flows by connecting Munroe Road with Summerland Drive across Paremuka Stream.

“This will make an enormous difference to people in Swanson, Sturges Rd, Summerland and Palomino areas,” says Councillor Penny Hulse, Chair of the City Development Committee.

The bridge is part of the Western Arterial route that runs from Kelston to Red Hills and will help reduce the current congestion around the Sturges Road/Swanson Road intersection by better distributing north/south traffic.

Additionally, the bridge will provide another secure route for emergency traffic in the event of a disaster.

Road markings on the 60-metre bridge will mirror that of Summerland Drive and Munroe Road, with one traffic lane each way separated by a flush median and marked parking lanes each side.

The total cost of the bridge is $2.6 million, with Transfund (now LTNZ) contributing $1.378 million.
