Some short term pain for long term gain to be aware of over the next few months …
Well it’s not really short term pain, it’s more short term ‘things to look out for’.
Contractors are about to start building a short section of cycleway alongside Christchurch Boys’ High School.
It forms an important part of the Uni-Cycle route, which will lead from the University of Canterbury to the Central City, connecting to the schools and destinations along the way. As part of this latest project, the shared path through North Hagley Park will be widened.
Getting these sections built will provide a safe, convenient way for people to ride from Riccarton Bush past Christchurch Boys’ High School and Christchurch Girls’ High School into Hagley Park and to the Central City at Armagh Street.
It is expected the work will take about three months to complete.
Contractors will do what they can to minimise disruption, however, there is likely to be some impact on movements through the area. Signs will show any detours or restrictions during construction and the Council encourages people to allow extra time for travel.
Be on the lookout for other people in vehicles, riding or walking and mindful of their safety.
People passing through North Hagley Park should note that there will be limited access to the path while it is being widened so it may be necessary to use an alternative route.
