Cranford Street is being upgraded to four lanes between Innes Rd and the interchange with the Christchurch Northern Corridor (CNC). From Monday 14 October, traffic will be shifted to the east side of the road so that the west side can be milled, repaired, and resurfaced. There will be a 30km/h speed limit in place, and there will be closures and turning restrictions on the side roads in the area. For more information see the project update at: https://www.nzta.govt.nz/…/CNC-Cranford-Street-road-surface…
