The Christchurch Northern Corridor (CNC) will see the construction of a new four-lane motorway, improving the efficiency of freight traffic from Christchurch and Lyttelton ports and delivering better access to the industrial growth area in Belfast. The project, which is being overseen by the NZ Transport Agency, includes:

  •  construction of a new four-lane motorway from south of the Waimakariri River to connect with the QEII Drive near Winters Road, and then continuing through Cranford Basin to link with Cranford Street;
  •  an upgrade of QEII Drive to four lanes between Main North Road and Innes Road;
  •  the addition of a third northbound lane on the Waimakariri Motorway Bridge through to Tram Road; 
  •  an upgrade of Cranford Street to four lanes to Innes Road; and
  •  off-road pedestrian and cycle facilities linking to existing and new cycle facilities in the area.      


The project, which has been designated a Road of National Significance (RoNS) by the NZ Government, is being delivered under an Alliance contract between the NZ Transport Agency, Christchurch City Council, Fulton Hogan, Aurecon and Jacobs. Construction commenced on 4 November 2016, with a four year completion timeframe.
