Motorists heading north please note: from next Tuesday 30 May the current Chaneys on-ramp will be closed to make way for construction work on the Christchurch Northern Corridor. You will be able to instead use a new diversion road which will be opened next to the on-ramp. Please be aware of the changed traffic condition and take care, and note that you may encounter congestion at peak times. For more details, and for other project updates, please see http://www.nzta.govt.nz/projects/christchurch-motorways/christchurch-northern-corridor
This project combines the Transport Agency’s Northern Arterial (a new section of SH74 running from just south of the Waimakariri River to QEII Drive near Winters Rd) and two Christchurch City Council projects that link QEII Drive to Cranford St and four-lane Cranford St to Innes Rd.
