Busy year ahead for Motorway project
Current location in the site
The Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 2 (CSM2) team are geared up for a busy year, as work ramps up across this NZ Transport Agency project.
Work has started on sealing a new local road (‘Manion Road’ – built between Weedons Ross Road and Curraghs Road), drainage and temporary road construction next to Waterholes Road and piping the new stockwater race along Weedons Road in preparation for the new Weedons Road Interchange to be constructed. Construction of various new internal driveways are coming along well as the team works towards the opening of Manion Road in April 2017 which will allow the closure of accesses onto Main South Road. Power and telecommunications cable trenching is also occurring along the project together with vegetation clearance. There will be changes to traffic management arrangements across the project to allow the construction team to safely carry out its work. Please remember that traffic management controls (signs, cones, barriers and fences) are in place to keep you safe.
The lizard capture programme, along with the salvage and relocation of aquatic wildlife living within water races, continues across the project.
Over the next eight months, you will notice:
- the closure of a section of Trents Road for one year with a detour in place via nearby roads
- construction starting on temporary roads at Halswell Junction Road, Shands Road, Springs Road and at the intersection of Waterholes/Hamptons Road.
- bridge construction commencing on Main South Road, Waterholes Road, Trents Road and at the Weedons Road interchange.
The four-laning of Main South Road sees work zones currently active from Rolleston to Weedons Ross Road. From mid-2017 the crews will continue work from Weedons Ross Road heading towards Curraghs Road.
The site information room, located at 997 Robinsons Road, is open every Thursday from midday to 4pm. You are welcome to come meet the team and ask questions. The latest project newsletter can be viewed at www.nzta.govt.nz/CSM2.
