Draft Intersection Design

Following a recent community workshop, Waka Kotahi is seeking feedback from West Melton Residents on a proposed “Draft Intersection Design” which includes.

  • Traffic lights at the intersection of State Highway 73 and Weedon Ross Road, which will help make travel times more reliable and give cyclists and pedestrians a safe place to cross
  • New paths and pedestrian facilities to connect key parts of the community
  • A new link road connecting Weedons Ross and West Melton Roads
  • A new roundabout at the intersection of the new link road and Weedons Ross Road
SH73 light-controlled intersection

These changes will help reconnect the community to key facilities, like the community and recreation centre, the Domain, local shops and workplaces, West Melton School and early childcare facilities.  They will also help to reduce delays and make travel times at the intersection more reliable– which is important as the Christchurch Southern Motorway is opening soon, and the Selwyn district is expected to continue growing.
