We’re making it way safer and easier to use the intersection at Langdons Road and Greers Road in Bishopdale.

This busy intersection has faced increased traffic flow due to the development and expansion of the Northlink Shopping Centre. This has caused significant delays and traffic-related concerns in the area, as well as safety risks for pedestrians, motorists and cyclists.

We'll be installing new traffic lights and modifying the road layout to make this intersection safer and easier to use. 

Approximately 29,000 people travel through this area every day. These upgrades will help to ensure they can get to where they need to go safely and easily.

Construction will begin at this intersection later in 2024.

Safety upgrades

We'll be making this area way safer and easier to use by:

  • Adding new turning lanes and cycle lanes on all approaches of the Greers Road/ Langdons Road intersection to improve traffic flow and cycle safety.
  • Installing signalised pedestrian crossings to help people of all ages to cross the road safely.
  • Updating the layout of the adjacent intersection of Greers Road and Reynolds Avenue. This intersection will become left in/left out only, with right turns restricted to mitigate potential safety and operational issues that could occur due to the close proximity of the two intersections.

Consultation and decision making

The elected Council approved these plans in February 2024, following a period of public consultation(external link)(external link) in October 2023.

The approved plans were endorsed(external link)(external link) by the Waimāero Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood and Waipapa Papanui-Innes-Central Community Boards.
