We're trialling a new type of cycleway on Ferry Road and lowering the speed to 30 km/h. Slower roads mean a safer way for everyone.
The cycleway will connect the existing cycle paths on St Asaph Street and the east end of Ferry Road at Fitzgerald Avenue.
Initial work starts on Tuesday 9 February 2021. We’re then planning to use paint, planters and wave separators to create a safer road environment and create a buffer between the cycleway and road.
Other key features:
These changes will stay in place until a permanent scheme is built following consultation and Council approval.

Ferry Road is one of five Christchurch projects that have received Waka Kotahi Transport Agency funding from the Innovating Streets for People Pilot Fund. Temporary low cost changes are made to the roading environment to test their effectiveness, before committing to a permanent, more expensive solution.
