Creating liveable and distinctive town centres is a priority for the community and Council.
Investing in our town centres is about revitalising and activating our main streets. With the Canterbury Town Centre upgrade, it’s about bringing new energy and excitement to Canterbury, and transforming it into a commercial, social and cultural heart of the City.
Overview of Project |
Current Work |
The project includes:
The intersection upgrades are essential for the safety of vehicles and pedestrians. The improvements will make turning at the intersection safer for vehicles and crossing the road easier for pedestrians.
The shared path underpass upgrade will improve accessibility and safety for pedestrians and cyclists using the Cooks River cycleway. The upgrade will provide greater clearance from the bridge and ample space for pedestrians and cyclists to use the path at the same time. During the upgrade, the underpass will remain closed and Council recommends cyclists use the detour route on the map below.
As part of the works to upgrade the Canterbury Town Centre and streetscape improvements some disruptions to traffic, power, water and pedestrian access will occur as part of the project of works. Detours for commuters, pedestrians and cyclists will be in place during the works.
We are working on the underpass and intersection from 7pm-5am on Monday-Saturday. We may sometimes work during the day, from 7-5pm on Monday-Friday if the work will not impact Canterbury Road.
Where possible, we may start work earlier at night to reduce the potential disturbance from high-noise activities like saw cutting and jackhammering.
Road and footpath closures are expected; however, traffic controllers will be on-site to help pedestrians and vehicles travel safely through the area. The shared path underpass will be CLOSED while work is happening, and a detour is in place. There will be no parking next to the work site.
Work may be loud; however, we will do our best to have the noisiest works completed by midnight. We will also do our best to allow for breaks in the noisy work every week. All works are weather/site conditions permitting.
