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).

Major cycle routes

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

Sumner Lyttelton Corridor

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

Road works

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

Riccarton Road upgrade

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

Christchurch Northern Corridor traffic mitigation

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

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.
