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

Project UIpdate as at 8 January 2018
Work on the West Kaiapoi new arterial road has been going well with the two new bridges constructed and the road nearly complete with the exception of the Mill Road intersection tie in with the new road and guardrail installations.
The next phase of work will require the traffic to be moved
onto the new arterial road so that filling work can continue at the Mill Road
On Monday 15 January traffic will be moved onto
the new arterial road at 10.30am. A significant change that motorists need to be aware of is that traffic travelling on Ohoka Road across Island Road will have right of way, with Island Road traffic being required to stop and give way to Ohoka Road traffic.
To allow this work to be carried out in a safe manner and as
quickly as possible, it is also proposed to close Mill Road between Island Road and Christmas Road. At the same time
Island Road will be closed to through traffic, east of Mill Road (refer to map).
The following road closures will be in place as follows:
