A new arterial road is to be constructed in west Kaiapoi to cater for ongoing development of land around the western side of Kaiapoi and will provide a key link to West Rangiora and Southbrook.
A new arterial road is to be constructed in west Kaiapoi to cater for ongoing development of land around the western side of Kaiapoi and will provide a key link to West Rangiora and Southbrook. The project is underway and a completion date is set for late February 2018. The completion date is dependent upon the two bridges being completed on time.
The road will extend from the Ohoka Road off-ramp and will curve around onto Butchers Road before joining back onto Island Road near Mill Road. The purpose of the road is to direct the through traffic away from the new residential area of Silverstream. The road will address safety issues at the intersection at Ohoka Road/Island Road and Cosgrove Road. Improvements will be made at intersections along the new arterial road. The new road will be two lane (one in each direction) and will involve the construction of two new bridges along the alignment.
In the future Island Road between Mill Road and Adderley Terrace will be closed to through traffic and the New Arterial Road will form the main link through to Kaiapoi. While
Adderley Terrace will still provide an alternate route through to Kaiapoi,
traffic will only be able to use this approaching from the south east, as Island
Road will be closed between Adderley Terrace and Mill Road later this year.
Once that happens, access to Adderley Terrace from the north will no longer be
available. Refer to the map to view the future road layout.
A tender has been awarded to HEB Construction Ltd for the
physical works. Work began on site in January
2017. Hours of work are 7.30 am to 6 pm, Monday to Saturday. Some night work will be undertaken to help reduce the impact on road users. Residents will be notified in advance of night work being undertaken.
Project Update as at 20 July 2017
Over the last two weeks work has been focusing on the bridges and also
the kerb lines at Island Road/Ohoka Road.
All the bridge abutments have now been poured and the formwork removed.
The rock rip-rap has been moved into its final position to protect the bridge
abutments from scouring.
Abutments for the new bridge over the Ohoka River
The bridge beams have been cast off-site and were delivered to site this week. The beams have been manufactured down south and are being trucked to site. The bridge beams are being lifted into place by an 85 tonne crane.
Hollowcore beams for the new bridge over the Ohoka River
A significant amount of work has been done by Mainpower on site over the
last two weeks. They have removed a large number of power poles and
overhead lines from the new alignment on Butchers Road, and the old road alignment
on Giles Road.
Power poles being removed from Butchers Road
At the Ohoka Road
Off-Ramp the last remaining sections of kerb have been poured, the intersection
is now taking shape, and the final layout of the intersection is visible.
New kerb alignment at Ohoka Road intersection
The installation of the hollowcore beams for the Ohoka Stream Bridge was completed on Friday. This was a major
milestones for the project. The crane has moved to the Silverstream
(Kaiapoi River) Bridge and is placing beams there.
As well as this HEB are continuing with earthworks by the Mill Road
intersection, and are hoping to start filling on the northern side of the
intersection, along the new road alignment.
consultation process for the proposed speed limit for the New Arterial Road,
Ohoka Road, Island Road and Adderley Terrace is now open.
is proposed to put in place a 50km/h speed limit from Ohoka Road across the
overbridge and through the Island Road intersection, a 60km/h speed limit along
the new arterial road to the end of the houses on Butchers Road, then an 80km/h
speed limit through to the west side of the Skewbridge Road bridge.
proposal includes changing the speed limit on Island Road from Cosgrove Road
past Adderley Terrace to 50km/h as this area is now predominately urban in
nature and a temporary 50km/h speed limit is currently in place.
consistent with this speed limit it is proposed to change the speed limit on
Adderley Terrace to 50km/h, where the speed limit is currently 70km/h.
consultation process will be open for public feedback until 5pm on Friday 11 August. Further information is available here.
