Ferrymead intersection goes back for discussion • By Noah Graham THE PUBLIC will get a big say on what changes will be made to the controversial St Andrews Hill Rd, Bridle Path Rd and Main Rd intersection. The city council is looking to change the layout and residents have received a brochure in their letterboxes outlining three options. Hill residents were critical of changes to the intersection when the Ferrymead Bridge was reconstructed during 2015. The first option is to leave the intersection as it is. The second is to install new traffic signals on St Andrews Hill Rd alongside new pre-signals on Bridle Path Rd. The third is to introduce a no right turn for Bridle Path traffic on to Main Rd. Intersection user and Cannon Hill Cres resident Mike Morrison said option two is the better option and was the obvious choice. Mr Morrison said a submission was made to the city council when the Ferrymead Bridge was reconstructed which recommended traffic signals on St Andrews Hill Rd. He claims it would have saved a lot of time, effort and money if the city council had listened to the original recommendations. The community wants the new traffic signals installed and leaving the intersection as it is would be dangerous, Mr Morrison said. Sara Templeton Last week Mr Morrison had a close call at the intersection when he was making his way into the city. He said a motorist ran through one of the red lights. “They should not have run through the red light, but the intersection did not help.” •Turn to page 6 Check out our new listings on page 7 Chocolates from the heart this Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, Feb 14 1013 Ferry Rd, Ferrymead - Ph 384 5285 218 Riccarton Road, Riccarton - Ph 343 1467 21 Humphreys Drive, Ferrymead Phone (03) 3844 179 /TheStandevens Simon Standeven 0274 304 691 Paula Standeven 027 547 2852 Prier Manson Real Estate Ltd Licensed (REAA 2008)
