I don’t know about you but driving through Christchurch can be incredibly frustrating! It really boils my blood when I’m trying to get somewhere and then I realise that the road up ahead is closed and I’ve been diverted. And then I’m on a one way. And then I’m stuck in traffic. And then I’m going in circles, still unable to reach my destination. AHHHHH.
However I just discovered this really handy website which I find a lifesaver…so I wanted to share it with all of you! Once you head to http://www.transportforchristchurch.govt.nz/ you’ll see that there are a few helpful tools to stop your road rage in its tracks! You can look at a map of the city and see where there are: roadworks, road closures, incidents and get an idea of your approximate journey time. I find this really great for planning the fastest and least stressful driving route. The website also includes information about parking spaces and rates within the city, which makes it even easier for you to head out and about in Christchurch.
So check it out and make your sure you’re having lazy Sundays instead of stressful ones!
