Main North Road, Prestons Road, and also Belfast Road, will be impacted by detoured traffic due to a southbound closure on Marshland Road from midday on Thursday 29 July until 6am on Monday 2 August. The closure is for a concrete pour at the Marshland Road bridge over the Pūharakekenui / Styx River. See the post from Transport for Christchurch for more information:
HEADS UP: Marshland Rd – one-way system – from midday Thursday 29 July
From midday on Thursday 29 July, until 6 am Monday 2 August Marshland Rd will be closed to southbound traffic from Belfast Rd. Manual traffic control may also be required at times to assist with turn movements into Belfast Rd.
This is to enable the concrete pour for the new bridge deck and allow sufficient curing time to connect the old and new bridge structures together.
Contractors will be working with day and night shifts during this period to complete critical pavement works for the upcoming traffic diversion on the new section of the bridge, later this year. By doing these works during the lane closure will minimise further disruptions. Posted detours will be in place. ^JP
