Topic: Hagley Avenue - Christchurch Street

Topic type:

Formely Lincoln Road

Lincoln Road first appears in the Star in 1868 in an advertisement and in street directories in 1880, running from Tuam Street to the South Town Belt (later Moorhouse Avenue). In 1922 residents petitioned the Christchurch City Council for the name to be changed to Hagley Avenue.

In 1928 the Riccarton Borough Council asked yet again for the name to be changed as they felt there was confusion with Hagley Street in Riccarton which had been named first.

Residents of Hagley Avenue presented a petition and the request was declined. The Riccarton Borough council was asked to change the name of Hagley Street instead.
