SELWYN TIMES Tuesday November 29 2016 7 News Bypass won’t benefit everyone In Brief SHOPPING CENTRE OPEN • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding POUND RD residents may have to put up with an increase of heavy vehicles past their homes daily as part of a plan to mitigate heavy congestion in the Hornby business area. A $15 million new bypass is to be constructed through Waterloo Business Park. As part of this work, the Mike Mora Sara Harnett NZ Transport Agency plans to upgrade the intersection at Barters Rd, Pound Rd and Main South Rd to cater for increased traffic. Waterloo Business Park assistant development manager Joel Webber said it was expected between 3000-5000 people will be working at the park when it is completed. Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board chairman Mike Mora said while the intersection would ease congestion, the new bypass will send trucks along Pound Rd. PROBLEM SOLVED: Trucks will have an easy turn onto Pound Rd when a new bypass sends them through the Waterloo Business Park. But residents will have to deal with an increase in heavy vehicles daily. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN “If heavy trucks are coming from the south going north, they will either come up Main South Rd at least to Carmen Rd, turn left, and then head north. “They won’t need to with this new intersection at Pound Rd and Main South Rd in place,” Mr Mora said. The current traffic volume on Pound Rd is about 5500 vehicles a day. But Pound Rd residents said it was hard to say how they would be affected by the bypass. Resident and Yaldhurst Residents’ Association chairwoman Sara Harnett said there would definitely be more noise. “I hope there are not too many big trucks going there but there is certainly potential,” she said. Resident Debbie Payne said with Fulton Hogan Quarries Canterbury down the road they already had heavy loads going up and down the road. She said it would be great when the traffic lights were put in because the intersection at Barters Rd and Main South Rd was a nightmare. A NZTA spokeswoman said, as of November 1, 2016, about 24,000 vehicles used the intersection at Main South Rd and Barters Rd each day. She said there were 19 injury crashes at the intersection of Main South Rd and Barters Rd between 2011 and 2015. The project is planned to take 15 months to complete. Along with the construction of the bypass, stage 2 of the Christchurch Southern Motorway project has begun to improve congestion problems for motorists commuting between Halswell and Rolleston. HAVE YOUR SAY: Is this bypass a good idea? Do you expect to be affected by traffic changes?
