Work is nearing an end on several safety upgrades to Christchurch’s transport network.
Christchurch City Council Acting Head of Transport Lynette Ellis says that by early October construction work should be wrapped up on:
“These projects have been happening in different parts of the city but they have one key thing in common – they are all about improving safety for people travelling around our network’’ Ms Ellis says.
“I know some of the work on these projects has been disruptive and has taken longer than people would have liked. This is particularly the case on Dyers Pass Road where unexpectedly soft soil conditions slowed-down work on installing the safety barriers.
“Last month’s COVID-19 Alert Level 4 lockdown unfortunately compounded the delays, forcing all work on site to stop for two weeks. Our contractors though were able to get back on the job under Alert Level 3.
“I want to thank everyone for their patience and assure them that we are nearing the finishing line. By early October, work on these four projects should be largely completed,’’ Ms Ellis says.
