The proposal is to install traffic lights and realign the intersection of Cashmere, Hoon Hay and Worsleys Rds with work beginning in May. The upgrades have been fast tracked by the city council due to wider safety concerns. “This project was brought forward by city council due to community concerns around safety for drivers, Aaron Haymes pedestrians and cyclists at this intersection,” city council transport operations manager Aaron Haymes said. The intersection serves as the entrance to the Christchurch Adventure Park and the new Cashmere Estate subdivision. Mr Haymes said the intersection had experienced a surge in use when the adventure park opened. He said high numbers were also expected to resume when the park re-opened. “We recognise that this area has had a huge increase in traffic due to the Adventure Park, and we need to act quickly to make it safe for all road users,” Mr Haymes said. The improvements include the installation of traffic lights, two new pedestrian crossings, the relocation of a bus stop, and construction of speed humps on Worsleys Rd, near the Hurunui St intersection. The consultation, which the public can submit via the city council’s website, proposes two options. The only difference relates to car parking on Cashmere Rd. Due to the additional road width required for traffic at the intersection, there is not enough road space to retain on street car parking on both sides of Cashmere Rd, Mr Haymes said. “The main difference in the consultation options relates to car parking and whether parking in the vicinity of the Cracroft Shopping Centre is provided on the north or the south side of the road,” he said. There will be a drop-in session on August 14 between 5 and 7pm at Silverbacks Café in the Cracroft Shopping Centre. SAFETY CONCERNS: The Worsleys, Cashmere and Hoon Hay Rds intersection will be upgraded with work starting in May.
