Pineacres Corner & the Lineside/Smith Overbridge

The NZ Transport Agency (including the former Transit NZ), has come up with revised plans for these two intersections, following the consultation they carried out a couple of months ago.

Their proposal for Pineacres now allows a right turn from Williams Street on to the Main North Road.  The new suggested layout appears to follow closely a suggestion from Waimakariri District Council staff.

They have abandoned the idea of allowing northwards movement off Lineside Road but have retained traffic lights on the overbridge.  The reason given is “to address the accident history at this location and also future congestion.”

Note that this is still at the investigation stage and the Transport Agency is still seeking questions and comments.
