Full description

What the work involves

The Council plans to improve the connection from South Hagley Park and the Central City to Edinburgh Street where the existing shared pedestrian cycle path starts and finishes.

The Council will install new traffic lights to provide a safe crossing for riders and walkers where the existing shared path crosses Lincoln Road and Wrights Road at the Southern Motorway overbridges. The existing pathway through Marylands Reserve will also be upgraded and widened.

The proposed work includes:

  • A new cycleway on Grover Street, Collins Street and Jerrold Street South
  • New traffic lights to help people walking and cycling to cross Lincoln Road and Wrights Road.
  • Path upgrade at Marylands Reserve
  • Removal of the left vehicle turn into Simeon Street from Brougham Street.

    The Major Cycle Routes network

    The Major Cycle Routes network is part of a 30-year approach to transport in our changing city. These changes mean we have to consider how people and things move about. We cannot simply build more roads. We need other options and the network of cycleways will provide people with more choice in how they get around.

    Little River Link

    The Little River Link is three kilometres long at the Central City end, with an additional connection into the Little River Township, and will cost $6.38 million to build based on 2015 figures.
    This first section is expected to be finished in 2017 with the whole route due to be completed in 2019.
    When completed it is anticipated up to 750 trips a day will be made on the Little River Link, including commuters and recreational users.
    The remaining section to complete the city of the link will be built as part of the Wigram-Magdala overbridge project. It will connect cyclists back on the existing shared path that runs alongside the Southern Motorway to Halswell Junction Road.
