Roads and pipes

As the SCIRT rebuild comes to an end Christchurch City Council will continue repairing roads and underground pipes.

The Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) was formed in 2011 following the Christchurch earthquakes. SCIRT was responsible for rebuilding the city’s earthquake damaged roads, fresh water supply, wastewater and stormwater networks. SCIRT is now coming to a close and will complete most of its construction work by the end of March 2017.

SCIRT to Council transition

The Council has been working closely with SCIRT over the last few years to manage the handover of the construction programme. This has led to the Council developing a new way of working to ensure we can deliver on the $450 million underground services repair programme indicated in the Long Term Plan.
