year-long roading project involved the construction of a new road from the
Ohoka Road off-ramp, around onto Butchers Road and joining back onto Island
Road near Mill Road, and two bridges crossing the Kaiapoi River and

area of Silverstream and provide a key link to west Rangiora and
Roading Manager Ken Stevenson says “As well as providing a link through to west
Rangiora and Southbrook, the new road will address safety issues at the
intersection of Ohoka Road/Island Road and Cosgrove Road.
A key change
we want people to be aware of is that Ohoka Road and the new arterial road
traffic will have priority over Island Road. This is a significant change that
motorists need to be aware of, and we’re asking drivers to take extra care when
travelling through the intersection following this change”.
change is that Island Road, between Mill Road and Adderley Terrace will be
closed permanently to through traffic from Monday 15 January, as the new arterial
road forms the main link through to Kaiapoi. Adderley Terrace traffic heading
westward to Ohoka or Rangiora will be able to access the new arterial road via
Silverstream Boulevard and Hayson Drive.
Motorists will notice work continuing around the Mill Road intersection and the intersection of Island Road and the new arterial road as contractors work to complete road sealing from Monday 15 January until Wednesday 31 January. Stop/go traffic management will be in place at both locations during the day - please expect minor delays. Mill Road will be temporarily closed until Wednesday 31 January.
