Liverpool St Cashel St Intersection urgently needs a Give Way sign due to the massively increased traffic after the earthquake. Few people understand the give way rules for an intersection with no give way or stop signs. This intersection is extremely dangerous for bicycles travelling east along Cashel and turning right into Liverpool.

Good, quick response from CCC (within 1 working day of receiving report). The problem will improve once Manchester St is open to through traffic again. Hi Rob Thank you for your suggestion about installing a Give Way signs on Liverpool Street at the intersection with Cashel Street. I do not think that a Give Way sign is either needed or would be able to be installed before the central city area returns to normal. Unfortunately there is a legislative process that has to be followed before a Give Way sign can be installed. This process can take around 4 months to go through the consultation phase, decision making and legal resolving stage that we are required by national legislation to follow. It is envisaged that by the time the 4 months is up, the majority of the roads and streets will be back to normal and the give way sign would not be needed. There are also many "T" intersections that are similar to the Liverpool Street/Cashel street intersection in the central business district. Bedford Row with Manchester Street, and Latimer Square (west side) with Hereford and with Gloucester Streets being examples. These intersections seem to be operating OK. The Road Code is clear in such circumstances which vehicle has the right of way. In regards to your comments on cycle safety at this intersection, I have noted them but suggest that when the central city area gets back to normal any danger will be diminished. I will however continue to monitor the intersection and if I see any problems that I can deal with, will do so.
