Colombo Street - cycleway connection project



We are installing painted cycle lanes on Colombo Street, and resurfacing Colombo Street between Kilmore Street and Salisbury Street.


Our network of cycleways is making it safer and easier for people to cycle. When more people are cycling it eases pressure on our roads.


Colombo Street from Bealey Ave to the Avon River Bridge


March 22 to July 2022 .(weather/site condition dependent).


The contractor is Schick Civil Construction. Phone James Flower on 021 371 272, Monday to Friday.


The previous week of construction saw the installation of the new kerb and channel, garden beds and the foundations of cycles stands and seats on the eastern side of the Peterborough Street and Colombo Street intersection. The installation for the cycle stands and seats will be completed in early May as a result of COVID 19 impacting freight supply chains nationwide. Following their installation the footpaths will be sealed and re-opened for pedestrians.

The road access closure to Peterborough Street east at Colombo Street has now been removed.

This week work will focus on the intersection of Kilmore Street and Colombo Street. Works being undertaken this week at the Kilmore Street/Colombo Street Intersection include:

  •  Kerb and channel installation
  •  Planter beds
  • Pavement construction
  • Footpath construction
  • Installation of new traffic signals

In addition to the above, new sign posts will be installed along Colombo Street between Kilmore Street and Bealey Avenue in preparation for the new line marking.
