Upgrades to the section of Riccarton Rd, which includes the busy shopping strip between Harakeke and Matipo streets, will be put on hold for six weeks from December 2.
The works are the second stage of an upgrade for Riccarton Rd. The first stage, at the Hagley Park end of the road, crippled businesses. Both stages will cost $18.4 million.
Stage two works started in January. A tree-planted median strip will be added between Clarence and Matipo streets, road markings will give buses priority over cars, water pipes which are nearly a century old will be replaced, and the deteriorating road will be resurfaced. Parking will be removed to allow for the new road layout.
Throwback Thursday: German tourists Andreas and Silke Staehle enjoy the 40 trees on display at the CCS Christmas Tree Festival at the Christchurch convention centre in December 2005.

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.
By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.
