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 Leanne Davies on 021 420 745, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.


  • One month ago, residents were advised of the need to have Flinders Road changed to a temporary one-way road, with traffic
    exiting via Bridle Path Road. We appreciate the efforts made by residents to observe this change.
  • As a result of some traffic not observing the speed limit, and attempting to go against the flow of traffic, we have reduced the posted speed limits, increased sign sizes in key areas, and restricted parking in narrower areas.
  • Please continue to observe the posted speed limit and one-way requirements. As stated previously, this detour will only be required till mid-December 2022. 
  • Thank you for your patience while this work is being undertaken.
