View from grassed area of Dryden Avenue and the site of the new intersection

Work to extend Markham Way and create a new intersection at Rolleston Drive and Dryden Avenue will begin next week.

Work will begin at the Markham Way end of the extension on Monday 21 September and move towards Rolleston Drive, with the new intersection as the final stage of construction.

The work is expected to be completed by February 2021, depending on the weather, or other work restrictions due to Covid-19.

Rolleston Drive and Norman Kirk Drive will remain open throughout the upgrade, with short periods where each street will be reduced to one lane. This will be done outside of peak hours and we will keep users updated on this via the Council Facebook page, website and Council Call.

The site will be fenced and a fenced pedestrian access way will be in place from Rolleston Drive to Rolleston School to ensure safe pedestrian access around the site.

The new intersection and extension of Markham Way will help with traffic flow into Rolleston, easing congestion on Rolleston Drive, provide additional access to the new town centre and Selwyn Health Hub and improve safety for pedestrians, particularly school pupils and families.

Thank you for your patience while we carry out this upgrade.
