Here’s a quick update from Christchurch City Council on some of the road works going on in Riccarton:
Middleton Road closure
From Tuesday 26 October to Saturday 30 October, Middleton Road will temporarily closed at the Riccarton Road intersection from 9am-4pm and open during peak hour traffic flow (7am-9am and 4pm-6pm). This is to make improvements to drainage pipes and resurface the intersection.
Auburn Avenue and Field Terrace will both remain open to two way traffic. Please follow the 30kph speed limit and any detour signs.
Deans Avenue work
From Wednesday 27 October we’ll be starting work along Deans Avenue, replacing water pipes. Work will start at the intersection of Deans Avenue/Lester Lane and progress in stages towards Deans Avenue/Bartlett Street. There’ll be no on-street parking on Deans Avenue in the area being worked on, but sections of parking will open up as the work progresses. Work is expected to be completed at the end of March 2022.
Riccarton Road work
Work is in the final stages on the Riccarton/Ilam/Middleton roads intersection, due to be completed by the end of November.
