The new roundabout with cars going round it

The new roundabout at the Shands Road and Blakes Road intersection has been completed with the roundabout at Springs Road and Marshs Road nearing its finish.

Along with a new roundabout the Shands Road and Blakes Road intersection has a new, wider road and lane layout and a separate cycle lane. Final planting and landscaping is being completed this week.

At the Springs Road and Marshs Road roundabout the new road layout, street lighting and paths are almost complete with work expected to be finished in early November.

The roundabouts cost $9.7 million and were built as part of safety improvements around Prebbleton. Waka Kotahi/New Zealand Transport Agency funding has covered 75% of the cost.

The Council will cover the remaining cost for the Shands Road/ Blakes Road intersection, while the balance for the Springs Road/ Marshs Road intersection will be split between the Selwyn District and Christchurch City Councils.
