When they are parked and being loaded with rubble and silt it’s comforting that work is being done but then they lurch off onto city streets – another road user to share with.
There are several hundred trucks a day working in the CBD alone and the police are enforcing new speed and weight limits which is good to know. If you are planning a route across the city (and who doesn’t check the map these days) the trucks heading to the landfill are going this way:
• Madras Street (return Barbadoes Street)
• Bealey Avenue
• Whitmore Street
• Hills Road
• Akaroa Street
• Marshlands Road
• Prestons Road
• Landfill Road
Other traffic management measures are under way – read more about them here. And just in case you are a big truck fan – or have one in the family – Christchurch City Libraries has some safe indoor viewing for truck enthusiasts of all ages.
