  • We’re replacing old water mains and lateral connections along Waimairi Road.
  • Works will start at the Waimairi/Riccarton roads intersection and progress to the Waimairi Road/Peer Street intersection. The water supply main will be replaced in the road, and the sub-mains and property connections will be completed in the footpath.
  • Traffic management will be installed to keep both road users and workers safe.
  • On road parking will be limited during the works.
  • During construction access to your property will be restricted at times. We’ll let you know before we begin this work so you can park your car on the road, outside of the work site. If you urgently require vehicle access to your property, for deliveries or home help etc. please speak to our friendly staff on-site and we can help manage this.
