Full description

The proposed Nor’West Arc route starts at Cashmere Road near Princess Margaret Hospital and runs north across the western side of the city, eventually connecting to the Northern Line Major Cycle Route near St James Park.
Feedback is being sought on the first stage of this cycleway from Cashmere Road to the University. Feedback on the rest of the route will be sought at a later date.The existing corridor, which links Cashmere Road to the University of Canterbury, is already popular with cyclists and was previously known as the ‘Sunnyside Route’, as published on the Christchurch Cycle Map in 1983. The Nor’West Arc project proposes to follow and upgrade the majority of this route to make it safer for cyclists. The proposed route connects with an extended number of popular destinations such as the Heathcote River, Centennial Park, Pioneer Recreation and Sports Centre, Spreydon Domain, the University of Canterbury and the many schools along its length. It also intersects with a number of the Major Cycle Routes; the Opawaho River Route, Quarryman’s Trail, Little River Link, South Express and Uni–Cycle.
