What and Why
As part of the ongoing earthquake repair works, the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team(SCIRT) will be undertaking final road reconstruction works on Slater Street. These works will involve a new layout in a small section of Slater Street - (between Dudley Street and 71/78 Slater Street). The remaining sections of Slater Street will have minor repairs carried out and will be left in the original road layout. SCIRT is only delivering a limited number of streets where full reconstruction is required. For Slater Street, the worst affected area will be fully reconstructed. The remaining area will go into the Council future maintenance programme.
The new road layout will involve new kerb and channel that will be constructed on the road side of the new street trees. This will reduce this section of Slater Street to a 9 metre kerb to kerb roadway, which is standard width for a local residential road. The new layout will balance the need for parking on both sides of the street and still allow for two way traffic flow.
All street trees within the road narrowing area (refer locality plan) will be removed and replaced with Trident Maple (Acer Buergerianum), and new grass berms installed. With the kerb now being on the road side of the trees, this will allow for better maintenance and protection of the street trees and grass verges.

Features of this proposal (refer plan)

  • Kerb to kerb road reconstruction, with new kerb and channel in narrowed areas.
  • New road layout (road narrowing) with the kerb and channel being on the road side of the street trees, and new grass berms.
  • Existing street trees (at the intersection of Dudley Street and Slater Street) removed due to upcoming construction works. New street trees will be planted on Slater Street.
  • New no stopping lines at localised road narrowing points, ie intersections.
