Community Boards approve changes to Shirley/Marshland Intersection

On 13 February, the Waipapa Papanui-Innes-Central Community Board, together with the adjacent Waitai Community Board, approved changes to the intersection of Shirley/Marshland/New Brighton Roads and North Parade.

The intersection is within the top 1% of Christchurch intersections in terms of there being a risk of a crash, and approved changes include safe speed platforms on all approaches, and removal of the slip lane for left turns from Shirley Road to Marshland Road.

Before the changes are implemented, the full Council will be asked to approve a shared path on the north-west corner of the intersection.
