Project Information

Isaac Construction has been appointed to construct two new roundabouts at Shands Road and Blakes Road intersection and Springs Road and Marshs Road Intersection, as well as some widening work down Blakes Road to the intersection of Blakes Road and Cairnbrae Drive/Hinderland Drive.

Given their close proximity, the two intersection upgrades are being undertaken concurrently. The Springs and Marshs Road intersection is on the district boundary between Selwyn and Christchurch City, however Selwyn District Council is managing the upgrade of this intersection on behalf of Christchurch City Council.

Important Notes for businesses and residents

  • Hours of work for the duration of this project will be from 7am – 6pm Monday through to Saturday
  • Access to businesses will remain in place, should our work temporarily impact an entrance way, an alternative passage will be created and clearly marked for vehicles and pedestrians
  • Access to residents’ driveways will be maintained where practical, any work planned across a resident’s driveway will be brief and at an agreed time
  • Roadside parking will be impacted by our work for each active work site. We aim to keep work sites small and compact where possible, however if you have specific access requirements that we need to consider (e.g. nurse/doctor visits, Meals on Wheels, planned property works etc.), please advise our communications manager and we will do our best to accommodate these needs
  • There will be increased noise, dust, and vibration levels as a result of our work
  • Work will have no impact on current power, telecommunications or gas services; however, the network is still fragile so please be prepared in case there is an unexpected service cut off
  • All site works are subject to favourable weather and on-site construction conditions
  • Rubbish and recycling will not change, please put bins out in the usual spots by 5:00pm the night before collection, our crews will move and return them if need be
  • Safety is our number one priority. Safety is also your responsibility too. Stay clear and stay alert, please keep children and pets a safe distance from any work site
