The Christchurch City Council is considering street modifications near the Bush Inn Centre.

Councillors will consider a report on Wednesday from the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board with recommendations for upgrades around Riccarton, Hansons, Waimairi and Curletts Roads.

The Community Board has approved changes including removing the slip lane from Riccarton Road into Waimairi Road, installing safe speed platforms at the approaches to the intersection, installing speed humps on Angela Street, Brake Street and Leslie Street, making changes to parking on Waimairi Road, and also to the bus stop and shelter on Waimairi Road at the Bush Inn Centre.

The slip lane from Main South Road into Curletts Road will also be removed and a left turning lane installed at the lights.

Councillors will now consider a new signalised crossing on Waimairi Road at the Bush Inn Centre, adding on-road cycle lanes on Waimairi Road from Riccarton Road to Bowen Street, and installing a short section of bus lane on Riccarton Road.

These plans were approved by the Community Board at its February 15 meeting.

The Board also resolved for staff to put forward a report to the Council with options for the Main South, Yaldhurst and Riccarton Road intersection.

That report is expected to be presented to Councillors in the next few months.

Options for changes at the Main South, Yaldhurst and Riccarton Road intersection at Church Corner will be considered at a later date.
