Exciting ideas for the Brougham Street/ Moorhouse Aveue area taking shape
We’re emailing to update you on our project to make the Brougham Street/ Moorhouse Avenue area safer and easier to live, work and move around in.
This work is gaining momentum, with a series of exciting ideas for the future taking shape.
Many of you have taken part in our workshops. We really appreciate the time and effort you have put into this project.
Our team is working hard to find the right balance while we investigate improvements.
We want to give people travel choices and a sense of place, ensure liveability in one of Christchurch’s busiest areas, and consider the environment, our heritage, key industries and the economy.
We must also keep an eye on the cost of our ideas and consider how they will fit as Christchurch grows, communities form, and new technology creates more change.
Over the past several months, we have engaged with the community and key stakeholders, held workshops and collected information.
We’ve moved from a long list of ideas towards a preferred option which will include optimising the existing network, community liveability, travel demand management measures, and some infrastructure improvements over the next 30 years.
Over the next few months, the project team will carry out detailed assessments. We will continue to keep in touch with stakeholders and look for opportunities to make cost effective changes as soon as possible.
We’re aiming to have the preferred option finalised over the coming months. We expect to bring this back to you and our other stakeholders in early 2020.
Thanks again for your involvement in this project.
Haroun, Nilesh and Martin
