Why we need to make changes
We’re expecting a significant increase in people travelling on Cranford Street when the Christchurch Northern Corridor(external link) opens in 2020. The Christchurch Northern Corridor will improve travel times to and from the north of the city. It will decrease the number of people driving in some areas such as Main North Road and increase the number of people using parts of Cranford Street.
We need to make some changes to Cranford Street and the surrounding streets to improve the travel times for people travelling through and minimise people taking short cuts through side streets which could affect local residents.
