Four Christchurch projects to make it easier and safer for people to move around the city’s streets have been given funding from a new Government programme.
Innovating Streets for People is a $7 million NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) initiative to cut vehicle speeds and create more space for people on city streets.
The four projects to receive funding are:
- Trialling a temporary cycle lane along Ferry Rd between Fitzgerald Ave and St Asaph St, connecting the Heathcote Expressway major cycle route to the central city;
- St Albans School safety improvements, a trial to close Sheppard Place to vehicles at drop-off and pick-up times on school days;
