We're keeping the road open while we do the work

We're working on the third, and final, section of Riccarton Road, replacing old underground water and sewer pipes. This is the section between Matipo Street and Hansons Lane. 

We've also got other projects planned in the Riccarton area between June to November 2021. Some work will take a month or two to complete, while our major work on Riccarton Road will continue until March 2022.

We know road works are disruptive, so our contractors are working on several projects at the same time so we can get out of your way sooner.  All work has been planned to keep traffic flowing as best as possible. 

What we're doing

Wastewater

Water and wastewater

Replacing water and sewer pipes because they're old and have reached the end of life.

The work we're doing will improve how well they function now and in the future.

Road words

Road works

Upgrading the Riccarton, Middleton and Ilam roads intersection to improve safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

Cycleways

Cycleways

Building new cycleways to make the area a safer place to cycle.

This is part of our major cycle routes project, aimed at getting more people cycling to reduce congestion and greenhouse gas emissions.
