We’re upgrading the intersection of Middleton, Riccarton and Ilam roads – ranked the seventh most dangerous in Christchurch – to improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
The work started in March 2021 and will be completed in early 2022, the same time as work on the Nor’West Arc cycleway(external link) along Ilam Road and Middleton Road.
The work includes:
We’re also upgrading the drains, line marking the road and installing new traffic lights and islands during this project.
During construction, Riccarton Road will be reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction, with turning restrictions into and out of Ilam Road and Middleton Road. There will be traffic management and signs in place to show you where to go.
