Consultation on Greers and Langdons Road intersection upgrade has now closed.
People were able to provide feedback from 11 October to 31 October 2023. During this time, we heard from 156 individuals and groups. You can read their feedback and find out how this influenced the decision of the Waipapa Papanui-Innes-Central and Waimāero Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Boards, and the decision of the Council.
We're upgrading your intersection
As part of our commitment to manage the negative impacts of increased traffic from the Northlink Link expansion, we’re making it way safer for everyone at the Greers and Langdons Road intersection, which will also impact the Greers and Reynolds Avenue intersection.
The development and expansion of the Northlink Retail Park has increased traffic flows on local roads and caused significant delays at the intersection. About 29,000 vehicles or more travel through Greers and Langdons Road per day. Rat-running through nearby communities has created both pedestrian safety risks and additional traffic related concerns.
Our proposed plans aim to:
- Improve the crossing safety for pedestrian and cyclists from increased vehicle movements at the intersection of Langdons Road and Greers Road.
- Reduce the delay for vehicles turning at the intersection of Langdons Road and Greers Road.
- Prevent “rat-running” via Reynolds Avenue.
What's being upgraded
At the Greers and Langdons intersection we're planning to install:
- New traffic lights
- New turning lanes on all approaches
- Signalised pedestrian crossings
- Cycle lanes on all approaches
To keep traffic flowing, we also need to make changes to the Greers and Reynolds Avenue intersection. Tell us which option for Reynolds Avenue you prefer.
Two options for Greers Road / Reynolds Avenue intersection
To keep traffic flowing, we also need to make changes to the Greers and Reynolds Avenue intersection.
Take a look at the plans and let us know which one you prefer.
Option 1: Reynolds Avenue left in left out
Option 2: Reynolds Avenue cul-de-sac
Impact on trees
Two trees in the south-east corner of the intersection will be removed due to kerb and footpath changes. However, we plan to plant four new trees in a nearby area as replacements. In addition, the cul-de-sac option for Reynolds Avenue provides an opportunity for additional landscaping at the Greers/Reynolds intersection.
All feedback will be considered by the project team and the plans updated where appropriate. The Waipapa Papanui-Innes-Central Community Board and the Waimāero Fendalton Harewood Waimairi Community Board will receive all feedback and a recommendation from council staff. Both Community Board's recommendation will be presented to Council who will make a decision on the traffic light installation and cycle lane on Langdons Road in either late 2023 or early next year.
