Wharenui Road - South Express Cycleway



We will be replacing the waste water lateral, water supply main, submains and laterals, and constructing the new cycleway, footpaths and pedestrian crossings.


Our network of cycleways are making it safer and easier for people to cycle. More people cycling eases the pressure on our roads. The Sewer and Watermain replacement are part of a wider renewal program in the area and has been brought forward in advance of the cycleway works.


Wharenui Road / Lochee Road / Peverel Street, Riccarton / Upper Riccarton.


Early June 2021 to mid-October 2021. Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm (weather/site condition dependent).


The contractor is Downer Ltd. Phone 03 359 0700, Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm.
