Growing population calls for intersection upgrades

Current location in the site

Jones Road/Hoskyns Road

Work began on Thursday 22 March to install traffic lights at the Jones Road/Hoskyns Road intersection, in Rolleston. The upgrade will include traffic light installation, street lighting upgrades, storm water upgrades, footpath installation and road resurfacing. Construction is expected to be completed by June.

Murray Washington, Selwyn District Council’s Asset Manager, says the jointly funded Council/ NZTA project will improve this key intersection and provide for much improved traffic management in a rapidly developing area of Rolleston.

“Hoskyns Road is increasingly becoming the key strategic link between the Malvern area, State Highway 1 and Rolleston, as well as serving the Jones Road Industrial area, Izone Southern Business Hub, and the proposed IPort industrial park,” he says.

Road closures of Jones Road will be required periodically for the pavement construction to be completed. Traffic management will be in place to minimise disruption to traffic. The two bus stops on the eastern side of Jones Road may need to be closed at times. Temporary bus stops will be available during these times.

A 30 km/h speed limit will be in place around the work site. Road users are asked to take care when driving through the site, follow on-site signage, and be alert to changes in traffic management. Construction will occur from 7am–6pm, Monday to Sunday, and overnight from 6pm–6am, Sunday to Thursday. All works are subject to weather and on-site conditions.

Selwyn District Council has contracted Isaac Construction Ltd to carry out the upgrade. The total project cost, including design, construction and other work, is approximately $1.3 million. A map of the proposed new road layout is available at

Masefield Drive/Rolleston Drive

This intersection upgrade began in February. It includes traffic lights, cycle lanes and footpaths (both separate and shared), as well as storm water work and road resurfacing started in February.

Since construction commenced, Fulton Hogan have removed existing traffic islands, trees, completed 70% of the traffic light ducting, installed sumps, a soak pit and poured new kerb and channel on the southern side of Masefield Drive.

On Saturday a streetlight pole was relocated, which will allow construction of temporary surfacing of the southern side of the intersection.

Traffic will then be shifted around so work can progress on the northern side of the intersection.

By the end of March, Fulton Hogan are intending to complete all new kerb and channel, storm water works, install all remaining ducting for the traffic lights and install the new traffic signal poles. Pavement
construction will follow, with the intersection to be fully completed by
the end of May.
