Port Hills / Flinders Road - water main renewal detour notice



We are replacing the water pipes, which are part of the annual renewals project.


The existing pipes have reached the end of their service life and require replacing.


Port Hills Road (from Martindales Road to Bridle Path Road), Heathcote, Christchurch. This will also affect residents on Flinders Road.


7 November 2022 to early April 2023. Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm (weather/site condition dependent).


The contractor is JFC Ltd. Phone Eden Sloss on 021 420 745, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.


  • A separate notice has been delivered to affected residents on Port Hills Road, however this notice is to inform Flinders Road
    residents that Flinders Road will be temporarily converted to a one-way street, heading south.
  • Traffic exiting via the north end of Flinders Road will be restricted, and will be directed south, to use Port Hills Road as the means to
    travel northwards.
  • While the work in Port Hills Road will take till April 2023 to complete, the Flinders Road detour will only be needed till mid-December 2022, after which an alternate detour route will become available. 
  • Thank you for your patience while this work is being undertaken.
