Work on a major intersection upgrade in Ashburton, Mid Canterbury, begins this week. The aim is to make it safer for school students, people who bike or walk and all road users to get around the growing town.
People can expect to see lots of construction if they’re travelling on State Highway 1 between Porirua and Johnsonville throughout August and September, as work continues to make Wellington’s motorway network easier to use and more responsive.
The people of Tairua rely on safe access over waterways to stay connected and for the community to thrive. That’s why Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is starting construction of a footbridge this week so walkers and cyclists can safely cross Graham’s Stream.
Stop. Look for trains. Stay alive. New Zealand Police and Waka Kotahi are urging New Zealanders to heed a potentially life-saving ‘wake-up call’ highlighting the risks of railway level crossing crashes.
A unique bridge across the slip-prone Waikare Gorge on State Highway 2 (SH2) is a key feature of the preferred route that has been given the green light to move into the detailed design and consenting phases.
