Meeting with Regenerate Christchurch

All students and staff are welcome to join a meeting with Regenerate Christchurch, Wednesday 29 March, 12pm-1.30pm, Undercroft meeting room.

2017 is an exciting year for Christchurch’s regeneration and this meeting is an opportunity to hear more and get involved. Regenerate Christchurch is the body charged with leading the regeneration of the residential red zone, and working to revitalise the central city and New Brighton.

Regenerate works according to practices of ‘co-creation’ and is focused this year on planning futures for the red zone, taking account of community aspirations, economic and environmental opportunities, and climate change.

The meeting will be led by Ivan Iafeta, Regenerate’s CEO, and Rob Kerr, its manager for the red zone. They are keen to develop good links with UC, its students and staff.

Uni-cycle Route

Uni-cycle update and timeline

The CCC completed the Uni-Cycle Route through campus during the Christmas break to minimise disruption. To meet that timing, the cycleway is open along University Drive, but without connections to either Clyde or Ilam Roads.

Once complete, these connections will make the University Drive section of the cycleway operate more effectively, but they are significant works and involve the installation of two cycle/pedestrian zebra crossings, separated one-way cycle lanes and landscaping works.

We recognise that there will be some frustrations as the connections are constructed, and we ask for your patience and care on the roads during this time. The works on Clyde Road are expected to be completed by the end of March. Works on Ilam Road will continue until May.

The work on Ilam Fields is expected to continue through until April, and once complete, works along Dovedale Avenue will begin. This section is anticipated to take two months and will disrupt traffic and the ability to park on the street at times. When this section is complete, the majority of Dovedale Avenue’s on-street parking will remain.

Work from Clyde Road to Riccarton Bush, through Hinau, Miro, Totara and Ngahere Streets starts this week and will continue until June. This includes installation of further traffic calming and safety features, as well as changing the priority control at some intersections. These works will create some traffic diversions and some on-street parking will be lost.

Further works will be undertaken on the cycleway along University Drive during the Easter Break, including landscaping, warning rumble strips at pedestrian crossings, signage and green paint surfacing. An independent post-construction audit has been completed to identify any significant safety concerns, which the Christchurch City Council will address as appropriate.

In the meantime, please be patient and take care of yourself and others on the road, regardless of your mode of transport. The cycleway has been well planned and once complete, will be a great asset for the city, and provide a real alternative way for us to travel to the University.
