Russley Road will be four laned, with a Russley/Memorial Interchange as the gateway to the airport. A second access to the Airport Precinct will be built south of Avonhead Road. This will improve travel time, reliability and safety along and across the state highway.
The Russley/Memorial Interchange will have Russley Road (SH1) passing over Memorial Ave, this will separate the state highway traffic from traffic moving between the City and the Airport. People accessing the airport will have significantly less traffic to deal with - reducing delays and improving safety.
Memorial Ave is the main route for pedestrians and cyclists to the airport, and they will have dedicated space through the intersection providing a significant improvement for accessibility and safety. This will also be the main route for public transport into the airport.
An enlarged Harewood Road Roundabout with a pedestrian and cycle underpass will also improve access.
An additional southern airport access point will be provided south of Avonhead Road. It will be a grade separated intersection.
