In March, Crown-owned development company Ōtākaro began work to construct two large bus shelters and six dedicated bus bays on Christchurch’s Tuam Street, part of the organisation’s major investments in the city’s inner city infrastructure. Constructed by ENI Engineering, the shelters are similar to those built on the eastern side of Manchester St in Christchurch. These shelters are designed to provide protection from the elements for people heading to and from Christchurch’s designated Health Precinct.

The project is now in its final stages. ENI worked in a project team with Ōtākaro, Downer, Dominion Constructors, C&L Canterbury Ltd and Woods Glass on this project and the previous Manchester St Superstops, and this recent project has had the same pleasing outcomes. "The work has gone extremely well," says Dave Fletcher, ENI's Sales & Marketing Manager. "All four of these Superstops will be a real asset for the Christchurch CBD and have a big impact on the comfort and convenience of bus patrons."
