Harewood Road and Greers Road intersection - investigation work.


We’ll be working on the road investigating the location of underground services.


These works will confirm what is under the road. This will help us to plan the most efficient construction approach for two large projects programmed on Harewood Road later in 2024.


The intersection of Harewood Road and Greers Road, Bishopdale.


10 April 2024 for approximately four weeks. Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm (weather/site condition dependent).


The contractor is Isaac Construction. Phone Peter Chum on 027 236 6279, or email communications@isaac.co.nz. Please advise Peter if you have any specific property access requirements e.g. medical visits, large deliveries, home help and any planned works.


We'll be doing some investigation work at the intersection of Harewood Road and Greers Road from Monday 10 April for approximately four weeks.

This work will help us plan the most efficient construction approach for the following projects:

  • Renewing the watermain on Harewood Road as the pipes are nearing the end of their service life.
  • The Wheels to Wings Papanui ki Waiwhetū major cycle route.

Investigation work is required to understand the underground service locations and condition, as well as any potential clashes or risks to construction.

Construction of these projects is not programmed to begin until later in 2024. We'll provide more information closer to the time.

As these projects are located in the same area, we're using this opportunity to combine our investigation work.

We recently distributed a works notice that provided information about our wider investigations on and around Harewood Road. This works notice included more information about the timeline, locations and traffic impacts of our work.

A copy of the works notice can be seen at Bishopdale Library and Community Centre, or via our 'Work in your area' page: ccc.govt.nz/works (search: Bishopdale).

Traffic impacts

Work will take place Monday to Friday from 7am to 6pm.

The majority of the work will happen during these hours. There is the possibility a small amount of work will need to be done after 6pm or overnight. Another works notice will be issued with details if this is required, and we’ll contact affected residents and businesses directly.

Information for residents and businesses:

  • Access to properties and businesses for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists will be maintained around the work site where possible.
  • We’ll help people get around the site. Please advise our team if you have specific requirements e.g. medical visits, large deliveries, home help or any planned works.
  • At times, we’ll need to remove on-street parking to allow space for the works, and to keep everyone safe.
  • There will be increased construction noise and vibration at times, and we’ll do our best to keep this to a minimum.
  • The work will have no impact on any services such as water, electricity, telecommunications, and gas.
  • The timing of the work and certain activities will depend on the weather and the roads. We’ll provide updates if there are changes to the planned works.
  • Please put your bins out as usual by 6am on your collection day. Our team will move them and return them if needed.

Information for road users:

  • Temporary traffic management (road cones, signs) will be installed as part of the works. There may be some traffic delays and changes to traffic management. Please follow all signage and instructions from our team onsite.
  • We’ll put a number of traffic management layouts in place to keep our team safe while we complete this work. These will include reductions in lane widths, lane closures and the temporary removal of on-street parking in the working area.
  • A 30 km/h speed limit will be in place so we can keep our team and everyone safe.

We know this work can be disruptive, and we appreciate your co-operation and understanding.
