Durham St & Cambridge Tce - An Accessible City - Take extra care due to road works.

This main southbound one-way road corridor on the western side of the central city is being enhanced with landscaping and improved traffic flow.

It will have two lanes of southbound traffic, on-street parking on the western side, and a shared path for cyclists and pedestrians on the eastern side next to the Ōtākaro/Avon River.

Trees, landscaping and rain gardens will also improve the streetscape and suit the slower speed environment of the inner core.

These transport projects are part of the An Accessible City programme of improvements to the travel network in the central city.

They will support the economic, social and environmental regeneration of the city centre by making it more compact and safer and easier to get around – for any form of transport.

Streets will be prioritised for different forms of transport to provide safer and more efficient ways for motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users to move around.

The new design of the streets will balance the needs and choices of more people moving around the central city. An Accessible City plans for:

  • future road layouts
  • pedestrians, cyclists, public transport and private vehicle users
  • slower speed zones in some parts of the central city
  • better public spaces
  • parking
