Christchurch’s proposed Safe Speed Neighbourhood programme has been updated, reflecting community feedback received by the Council so far. “While monitoring community feedback we noticed some patterns of communities that wanted further reductions in their speeds, and others that wanted to be included,” Transport Operations Manager Stephen Wright says. A 30km/h variable speed limit during school start & finish times on Northcote Road is one of the changes. The consultation period has been extended to 3 January 2023.

Work to upgrade a section of Cranford Street is expected to begin this Monday 14 November, and will take around three weeks to complete. Due to the soft ground conditions final work on the section between Placemakers and the CNC roundabout has been left until now to allow settlement to occur. Take care if you’re in the area, and expect a reduced speed limit and lane closures. Some work will involve road closures and detours, and this will take place at night when there are fewer vehicles on the road.
