During April 2021, we asked the public for feedback about proposed changes to the SH1 corridor through Tinwald.
This feedback was assessed, and further analysis was undertaken.
Some key changes include removing the proposed raised safety platform at the signalised intersection, refining the intersection and signal design, better provision for pedestrians and cyclists to get to school and along Melcombe Street and under the rail viaduct through to the Ashburton River Bridge.

More recently (in 2022) the design for the Melcombe Street viaduct has been adjusted, in that all turning movements will be retained at this location. This change addresses concerns that turning restrictions would contribute to increased traffic at Comptons Crossing, the rail level crossing mid-way between Lagmhor Road and the viaduct.
