Colourful new cycle connection opens in Christchurch

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 27th May 2021

A colourful cycle link on Ferry Road is making it easier and safer for people to get into the city.

The trial cycle link has been funded through Waka Kotahi’s Innovating Streets for People pilot programme and provides a connection between the Heathcote Expressway major cycle route and the separated cycleway on St Asaph Street.

It was officially opened today by Transport Minister Michael Wood and Christchurch City Council Urban Development and Transport Committee Chair Councillor Mike Davidson.

Minister Wood says the new Ferry Road cycle connection is vibrant and a great example of the work that Waka Kotahi is doing with councils around the country to quickly make streets more liveable.

“We’re giving Councils the resources to trial new ways of making our streets safer for kids and commuters to get around. Already there are 27 Innovating Streets projects under way and a further 46 on the way across the country.

“Trialling these projects gives communities the opportunity to experience the benefits sooner and allows them to give practical feedback on any potential permanent changes," Minister Wood says.

The Ferry Road cycle link will be trialled for about a year, after which the Council will look at constructing a permanent cycle link.

Feedback gathered during the trial will help to inform the design for the permanent project.

Cr Davidson says the trial is a great way to demonstrate how the cycleway will work for people working or studying in the city or people commuting through.

“We’re using paint, planters and temporary separators to trial the new road layout. We expect to improve the final design based on the feedback we receive while this trial is in place," Cr Davidson says.
