What's happening

Find out about some of the larger transport projects Council is undertaking to improve our travel network.

Travel projects banner

Central City transport

The new central city is compact, people and cycle friendly and buzzing with activity. Come in and take a look.

Christchurch motorways

The Roads of National Significance (RoNS) is being implemented by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA).

Lincoln Road improvements

Peak hour bus lanes will be installed along Lincoln Road and a small stretch of Moorhouse Avenue in 2020 to make bus journey times shorter and more reliable.

Main North Road bus lanes

Bus lanes are being installed by Northlands Shopping Centre to improve the reliability and travel times.

Major cycle routes

A network of major cycle routes is being built connecting suburbs, shopping areas, businesses and schools.

Riccarton Road upgrade

Bus priority gives buses right of way over other vehicles when a road is heavily used.

Road works

The Council has a number of roading projects underway across the city.

St Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau transport projects

We're planning how we manage additional traffic in the St Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau areas when the Christchurch Northern Corridor opens.

Sumner Lyttelton Corridor

The Sumner Lyttelton Corridor from the Ferrymead causeway to Lyttelton re-opened on 29 March 2019, linking Christchurch with Lyttelton Port.

Te Ara Ihutai Christchurch Coastal Pathway

This pathway project provides access to the coastline between Ferrymead and Scarborough Beach in Sumner.

Woolston Village upgrade

We’re upgrading Woolston Village and part of Ferry Road. This will make the village a safer and more attractive place to walk, bike and drive.

Brougham/Selwyn intersection work

We're replacing stormwater pipes at the intersection of Brougham and Selwyn streets because they are old and have reached the end of their useful life.
