Current focus area

State Highway 1 (SH1) is the main road into Christchurch and is an important link for people driving to work, local businesses and freight. This road is becoming busier as more people make Waimakariri district their home. We continue to make a number of improvements to this corridor to make it safer for everyone.

Previous work in the Saltwater Creek to Tram Road corridor

During August and September 2019, we asked the public for feedback on this section of SH1. We have kept this feedback and previous studies of this corridor and you can view these reports on our publications page.
