Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) will soon be inviting tenders
from potential contractors to deliver its current three-year minor works
roading upgrades programme totalling approximately $15M.
Half the funding for all projects included in the programme is coming
from Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency via its Low Cost, Low Risk (LCLR)
QLDC General Manager Property and Infrastructure Pete Hansby said the
work will improve traffic flow and public safety in addition to the
quality of roads themselves.
These projects will make a positive difference to drivers in and around
Queenstown and the Upper Clutha as well as increasing active travel
options. The Schools to Pool route from Aubrey Rd to Wnaka Recreation
Centre, linking three primary schools and Mount Aspiring College, will
be a particular milestone in this regard, he said.
The full list of projects in the 2021-24 LCLR programme includes (in no
particular order):
Upper Clutha
" Golf Course Rd crossing;
" Golf Course Rd/Ballantyne Rd intersection;
" Ballantyne Rd/Riverbank Rd intersection;
" Schools to Pool active travel route;

Mr Hansby.
