We’re upgrading the intersection at Cashmere, Hoon Hay and Worsleys roads and installing traffic lights. This will make it easier and safer for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road at the intersection.

The work includes realigning Hoon Hay and Worsleys Road so traffic can flow through the intersection. This work will involve a full reconstruction of the intersection including new kerbs, drainage pipes, footpaths and landscaping. This project will make it easier and safer for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road at the intersection.

Work is now expected to be completed in September 2021 (weather/site condition dependent).

We're expecting to keep the roads open to traffic at all times but we'll have traffic management in place for the duration of the project, with signs in place to let you know where to go, if necessary.

Our contractor HEB Construction is leading this project. Contact HEB project manager on 027 703 4871 or contact Council on 03 941 8999 or 0800 800 169 for more information.

The intersection upgrade includes:

  • Realigning Hoon Hay and Worsleys Road
  • New traffic lights
  • A new raised table at the Worsleys Road and Hurunui Street intersection

The intersection will be realigned and traffic lights installed

Noise

Parts of this work will be noisy. There will some noise coming from trucks, heavy machinery and workers along the road to as we locate existing services and upgrade the road and surrounding area. We will provide plenty of notice around this at the time.

Shops and parking

You can still park your car outside your home. If we need to access the area, we'll door knock or deliver a start works notice in advance to let you know. The Cracroft shopping centre will be open for business throughout the works and there's plenty of parking available.

Buses

The bus will be running to usual schedule. If we do need to relocate the bus stop, we'll have clear signs showing where to go.

Cashmere intersection upgrade starting in April

Work to improve a busy intersection along Cashmere Road will make it easier and safer for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.

Christchurch City Council Transport Planning and Delivery Manager Lynette Ellis says work on the Cashmere Road, Hoon Hay Road and Worsleys Roads intersection will start in April and run for four months.

"We’re realigning the intersection so vehicles can cross directly from Hoon Hay Road to Worsleys Road, and installing traffic lights and pedestrian signals,” Ms Ellis says.

"This is a busy intersection with a high number of cyclists and motorists. This area is also the entrance to the Christchurch Adventure Park and the new Cashmere Estate subdivision.''

The Council has contracted HEB Construction to carry out the intersection improvements.

Upgrades on the Cashmere/Worsleys/Hoon Hay intersection will include:

  • Realigning the intersection at Cashmere/Worsleys/Hoon Hay Road to accommodate traffic lights.
  • Constructing speed humps in the surrounding streets as a traffic calming measure.
  • Planting of native trees
  • New road landscape gardens

“The new traffic signals will make it easier and safer for pedestrians to cross the road at this intersection,” says Ms Ellis.

“As expected with a project of this scale, there will be disruption to traffic while we reconstruct the intersection, but we’ll have traffic management and signs in place to let you know where to go.

“The Cracroft shopping centre and customer parking will remain open during construction, so keep shopping local and support your community.  We know the community have been waiting some time for this project and we appreciate your patience and understanding during construction.”
