The Main Road Master Plan supports the recovery between Ferrymead Bridge and Marriner Street, Sumner.
The Main Road corridor along the Ihutai / Avon–Heathcote Estuary and the coastal margin between Ferrymead and Sumner suffered significant damage to infrastructure, community facilities and residential properties as a result of the earthquakes.
The vision is that the Main Road corridor is the thread that connects, and provides a common bond between, the discrete and distinct local communities of Christchurch’s eastern bays.
The process to identify stakeholders, key issues, community aspirations and develop the Main Road Master Plan began in April 2013. After technical expert workshops and community consultation, the master plan was endorsed by the Community Board before being adopted by the Council in November 2014.
The vision is supported by nine goals, which are to be delivered through twenty-five detailed implementation actions. These encourage Council, private sector, community and government-led decision-making to align and move forward together in a logical sequence.
The vision, goals and actions are described in detail in sections 5, 6 and 7 of the Main Road Master Plan [PDF, 4 MB].
In the years following the adoption of the Main Road Master Plan, actions have been implemented where possible. The context for these continues to change and this has influenced decisions by the Council, other organisations and private individuals.
Progress on implementation of Main Road Master Plan actions can be viewed below, under the themes with which each action aligns.
