We've made it safer for pedestrians and cyclists on Rolleston Avenue and Park Terrace.
We’ve made changes to Rolleston Avenue and Park Terrace to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and visitors while the redevelopment of the Canterbury Museum is underway.
Canterbury Museum is planning a multi-million-dollar redevelopment of its Rolleston Avenue buildings, taking five years to complete. We’ve made alterations to the Rolleston Avenue and Park Terrace shared path to accommodate containers and fencing for the Museum work as well as other changes to safely move people through the area over the five-year redevelopment period.
We also made other changes to make the area safer for everyone.
With the changes in the layout along Rolleston Avenue and Park Terrace, we're keen to hear what people think.
You can provide feedback on the Park Terrace cycleway (external link)until Sunday 11 June 2023.
We’re making a number of changes on Rolleston Avenue, which will extend north along Park Terrace to the intersection of Salisbury Street.
The improvements have been installed under a Temporary Traffic Management Plan(TMP).
The changes use some temporary materials and include:
With the redevelopment of the Museum getting underway this year, the iron gates and posts at the entrance to the Botanic Gardens adjacent to the Museum will be dismantled and removed.
Visitors will be directed to the entrance at Hereford Street while the museum redevelopment is underway, and until the new entrance to the Botanic Gardens is complete.
Signage will be in place to direct visitors.
