An earthquake-damaged section of Fitzgerald Ave will reopen tomorrow after more than a year of repairs, but motorists still face a four- month wait until all four lanes are in use.

The northbound lanes of Fitzgerald Ave between River Rd and Alexandra St have been closed to traffic since July last year while damaged parts were reconstructed.

The Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (Scirt), which has been rebuilding the city's infrastructure, said the northbound lanes would be reopened to two-way traffic next week.

The southbound part of the road between River Rd and Heywood Tce would then be closed so quake damage could be repaired, it said.

Residents would be unable to access some streets in the area via Fitzgerald Ave.

The southbound section of the road could be closed for four months.
