Richard Workman and the team at Warner Fences Canterbury recently worked with both Higgins Construction and Traffic Management New Zealand on the Rapanui Cycleway in Christchurch.The cycleway which follows a route throughout the city required fencing to direct and control both cyclists and pedestrians at various traffic crossings and intersections. The fencing needed to provide practical and durable safety that would look good for years to come.
The Sherwood II profile was chosen at 1 metre high in black powder coat colour. The posts used were mostly bolted down but some had to be installed in ground.
The images on the left show Fitzgerald Ave and Aldwins Road, both very busy main roads, and so Warners had to prepare the site and install the fencing within specific time frames to work in with traffic management and accommodate lane closures. Excellent organisation and communication meant this was not an issue and the project was completed on time for the grand opening of the cycleway in December. The end result is practical fencing that looks good and meets the brief provided. Warner Fencing are proud to be involved in the continuing development of Christchurch.
