We are repairing the earthquake damaged stormwater and roading

  • The works are for a full renewal of the road from boundary to boundary. Works will start with investigating underground services,  then progress on to repairs and renewal of the stormwater pipes. 
  • We will be constructing new kerbs and channels, footpaths, grass berms, carriageway, cobblestone thresholds, planter gardens, carriageway pavement and chipseal surfacing. New street trees will be planted in Autumn 2020.
  • Some properties have vegetation overhanging the boundary that will need to be trimmed back to enable construction, contact will be made with the affected properties.
  • Sections of on-street parking will be restricted during the works. There will also be short-term road closures for some activities, such as laying the cobblestones across the road. Property access will be disrupted when activities are directly outside your driveway.  We will make contact with you to ensure you can get cars out ahead of the work.
