Marshland Road now 60km/h

The speed limit on Marshland Road north of Prestons Road is now 60km/h. This follows changes to speed limits in the area in 2019, at which time a section of Marshland Road was left unchanged pending further information from staff. The advice from staff was that 60km/h is a safe speed for the road as it is, and that it is not viable to change the road design to make it compatible with the previous 70km/h speed limit. The Council approved this change last month, in line with the recommendation from a Joint Meeting of the Coastal-Burwood and Papanui-Innes Community Boards.

Council defers decision on Cranford lanes

Today’s Council agenda item to decide the layout of Cranford Street between Innes Rd and Berwick St has been left to lie on the table to be considered at an extraordinary meeting on Thursday 26 November at 12pm, which allows time for further advice to be sought. At today’s meeting, representatives of two of the Council’s ‘Greater Christchurch’ partners (Ecan & Waimakariri District Council) spoke in support of peak-time Bus Only lanes, while another (Waka Kotahi / NZTA) pushed for clearways for general traffic. MP for Christchurch Central Dr Duncan Webb (pictured) asked Councillors to prioritise a bus or high occupancy lane.
