The project includes:
Creating liveable and distinctive town centres is a priority for the community and Council.
Investing in our town centres is about revitalising and activating our main streets. With the Canterbury Town Centre stage two upgrade, it’s about bringing new energy and excitement to Canterbury, and transforming it into a commercial, social and cultural heart of the City.
The intersection upgrades are essential for the safety of vehicles and pedestrians. The improvements will make turning at the intersection safer for vehicles and crossing the road easier for pedestrians.
The shared path underpass upgrade will improve accessibility and safety for pedestrians and cyclists using the Cooks River cycleway. The upgrade will provide greater clearance from the bridge and ample space for pedestrians and cyclists to use the path at the same time.
As part of the works to upgrade the Canterbury Town Centre and streetscape improvements some disruptions to traffic, power, water and pedestrian access will occur as part of the project of works. Detours around the works will guide commuters, pedestrians and cyclists will be in place to assist you to move around the site.

Council has commenced work to upgrade the Canterbury Road shared path underpass. During the upgrade, the underpass will remain closed and Council recommends cyclists use the detour route outlined below.
The closure is expected to be in place until early 2023, when the newly upgraded underpass opens.
Council reviewed feedback from the original proposed shared path underpass detour route on the eastern side of Cooks River, which was available for feedback in 2021. Council appreciates the feedback received and has amended the proposed detour to a safer route on the western side of Cooks River as per the map above.
