Have you noticed houses being demolished/removed on Prestons Road? The large project office that’s been built between Winters Road and QEII Drive? These are some of the first steps in the four-year project to construct the Christchurch Northern Corridor. This project will have a big impact on Redwood & Papanui, as well as other parts of the city, and Think Papanui will be posting photos and other project updates from time to time.
