The Christchurch City Council has over-ridden a plea from the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Comunity Board to reconsider major traffic changes at the intersection of Riccarton, Ilam and Middleton Roads.
The council plan will significantly impact the intersection, blocking traffic from travelling between Middleton and Ilam Roads. Middleton Road is a major feed to Canterbury University, but through traffic will be prevented under the plan. Instead, traffic will be able to make only left turns coming from each direction. Right turns into Riccarton Road will also be banned.
