8 years on from the devastating 2011 earthquake that took 185 lives and changed many others in the city, the repercussions on Christchurch infrastructure remain.
As per the NZTA website, transport investment in Greater Christchurch over the next three years will focus on the following areas:
- Completing construction of the Christchurch Southern Motorway and the Northern Arterial, providing better access from the south and north of the city for both commuters and freight.
- Progressing phase two of ‘An Accessible City’ to realise the aspirations of the rebuilt city to provide safer and more convenient transport choices. This will include the upgrade of Hereford, High, Victoria and Montreal streets as part of supporting the central city rebuild. There are $22m of projects in the NLTP for this work.
- Making progress on Christchurch’s major cycleway network to provide safe, alternative travel choices.
- Planning safety and access improvements along Brougham Street.
Further north, investment in both the Kaikōura and Hurunui districts will remain focused on earthquake recovery and completing the rebuild of the state highway and the local road networks.
