Major Changes Proposed for 3 Riccarton Rd intersections

Ilam Middleton Riccarton intersection

The City Council is proposing major changes to three intersections on Riccarton Rd. The most extensive will be the intersection of Riccarton, Middleton and Ilam Roads.

Under the proposals, through traffic from Middleton Rd to Ilam Rd will be blocked. It will become a T intersection with only a left-hand turn out of Middleton Rd allowed, and a left turn from Riccarton Rd for vehicles travelling west.
