Information for neighbours of Te Kaha

Updates and information for residents and businesses near the Te Kaha Multi-Use Arena site.

Oversized structural steel transportation

Over the coming months, trucks will be delivering oversized components of structural steel to the site. These movements will be happening before 7am so that the oversized, wide loads are off the road before the restrictions begin at 7am. Contractors will unload and lift the loads from 7am.

We expect to receive about two oversized deliveries a week. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide specific times due to the susceptibility to work processes and weather conditions, such as priming and painting.

Early morning concrete pours

Concrete pours are scheduled on the western and southern stands will also take place from 5am. 

Weather permitting, these are scheduled for:

  • Wednesday 6 December (west stand)
  • Friday 8 December (west stand)
  • Wednesday 13 December (east stand)
  • Thursday 14 December (west stand)
  • Friday 15 December (south stand)
  • Monday 18 December (west stand)
  • Tuesday 19 December (east south)

Community meetings 

Our last community meeting was held at the Transitional Cathedral on Monday 27 November.

If you are a nearby resident or business to Te Kaha, Canterbury’s multi-use arena, we hold four-monthly community meetings where we share information about our on-site progress.

This meeting will be a chance for us to check back in and answer some of your previous questions, and provide some insight into what to expect over the next few months.

There is no need to RSVP, although if you have questions and cannot make it on the night, please feel free to email them to and we will respond as soon as possible.

Neighbouring residents and businesses will receive a leaflet with information before the next meeting. If you're on our email database, you will also receive an email.

How to stay informed

If you’re a neighbouring resident or business, please email with "Neighbour Subscribe" in the subject line. We will send you updates as we receive confirmation of upcoming concrete pour dates.

This webpage will be regularly updated as information is confirmed.
