Pleasant, Sumner, Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors Bay, Akaroa Traffic lights change at intersection • By Caitlin Miles TRAFFIC LIGHTS at the controversial St Andrews Hill intersection will be reprogrammed to try and ease confusion for motorists. The left arrow light at the Main Rd traffic lights will be reprogrammed to allow for vehicles wanting to turn right off St Andrews Hill Rd onto Bridle Path Rd a better chance to get across a lane. Heathcote Ward city councillor Sara Templeton said: “This will allow St Andrews Hill to clear without worrying about unseen traffic coming around the corner.” Lights on Main and Bridle Path Rds will communicate and allow traffic to flow better. Residents in the area have complained about the layout and design of the intersection suggesting that it would not work even before it was built. Three options were presented for public consultation last year – 640 submissions were received. Option one proposed to leave the intersection as is, option two would see new traffic signals on St Andrews Hill Rd and new pre-signals on Bridle Path Rd and option three is to ban right turns from Bridle Path Rd onto Main Rd. None of these options were given the green light by Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board. They have decided to change the light phasing which will be trialled for three months. When it starts is yet to be determined. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think altering the traffic lights on Main Rd will help ease traffic issues at the St Andrews Hill intersection?
