We’re asking for feedback

Last year we shared the initial draft plans for Rolleston. We received helpful community feedback on how people need to travel. Since then, we’ve undertaken more investigations and reassessed the options. Take a look at the recommended draft plan and tell us what you think, before we finalise plans and move to the next stage of the project.

About the project

This project plans to provide a connection between the residential and industrial sides of Rolleston, improve safety at high-risk highway intersections and provide a more resilient and sustainable transport network. Travel through and around Rolleston will be safer and more reliable for people.

Changes to the proposed plan

This presentation explains the changes made to the proposed plan since last public consultation and why the changes were made.

Key features

  • Multi-modal connection across State Highway 1.
  • Intersection safety improvements along SH1 through Rolleston including Dunns Crossing/Walkers Road.
  • Rail improvements.

Better together

We’re working with mana whenua, KiwiRail, Selwyn District Council and others who want Rolleston to be a great place to live. As part of planning, we’ve considered nearby areas and future projects. While some projects have different timing and delivery, they will all work together to strengthen Selwyn District’s transport network.
