The beams are on at QEII Drive Bridge

The beams have all been placed on the QEII Drive Bridge. The job went very well with delays kept to a minimum.

What’s next for SH1 next year

We will be back on site on Monday 6 January 2020 and our first jobs will be to asphalt the new Waimakariri Bridge decks and build and seal the approaches to the bridge. Most of this work will happen at night to minimise traffic disruption. Expect to find traffic shifted onto different lanes including the new lanes on the bridge once sealed. Delays are possible due to lane closures in both directions.

There will be more on this in the New Year.

Prestons Road Bridge ready for beams

We have placed all the beams on the east side of the Prestons Road Bridge. We want to place the west side beams in early January so you may see some of us on-site at Prestons Road over the Christmas break but not on the actual public holidays. 


Cranford Street update

We will be back on-site on Tuesday 7 January, working at the Innes Road intersection installing traffic signals and opposite PlaceMakers installing street light poles.

The following week, we plan to mill the northbound lane between Knowles Street and McFaddens and start work on the central median and the U-turn bays. Chip seal and asphalt will be applied mid and late January. From this time on, side streets will be left in and out only.

From early February all the eastern side streets of Cranford Street will be closed so we can resurface the southbound lane.

What’s next?
In late February we will be resurfacing the upgraded Cranford Street and Innes Road intersection, this work will be happening at night. Lane and road closures will be in place when we do this work for around eight nights.

Early next year we will move traffic onto the new Cranford Roundabout. 

I hope you all have an awesome and safe holiday
