    Digging down a road is business as usual nowadays, but replacing pipe underneath a railway line is a special occasion. The Fulton Hogan crew working on the Addington wastewater repair job had to finish their work with a dig down off Detroit Place. Before this final repair work could even begin a section of railway line had to be carefully separated and removed from the tracks.
    The workers were on a tight timeframe as the work had to be complete and the railway safely back in place before the next train was scheduled to come through at 5:30pm.

  • Christchurch has been invaded in the form of orange and white cones. Where have they come from and what are they doing here? We hear from SCIRT who are repairing the infrastructure- including water, sewerage and roading before heading into the streets to find out how much the public knows about the infrastructure rebuild.

    Building Blocks: Hidden City, explores the fascinating water supply and wastewater networks in Christchurch, providing an insight into how it all works. This short film, presented by Safety Sam (our local DJ “Bondy” from More FM), explains how we get clean and safe water and, if you are brave enough to watch, uncovers the mysteries of where wastewater goes. The film also includes the work currently being undertaken by SCIRT (Stronger Christchurch infrastructure Rebuild Team), who have been tasked with the repair of the earthquake damaged infrastructure in Christchurch. This is a must watch for inquisitive minds who want to find out more about our hidden city!

    The film is inspired by Philip Wilkins, a civil engineer who is trying to open the eyes of his son to how a city functions and what Dad does when he goes to work. This is primarily an educational video for children who want to understand the exciting world of engineering. It is also intended to promote the industry and create awareness of the work civil engineers do. Enjoy!

    Fulton Hogan project manager Matt Russell explains the infrastructure repairs underway in Mt Pleasant and Redcliffs. SCIRT has major works in the seaside suburbs to repair the earthquake damaged wastewater and storm water networks, followed by repairs to damaged sections of the road surface. The Redcliffs and Mt Pleasant catchments are expected to take around eighteen months to complete.

    SCIRT works along Malcolm Avenue in Beckenham, Christchurch.
    Pipe bursting involves digging trenches near two manholes and pulling a drill head through the existing pipe. The drill head breaks up the old pipe as it moves along the pipeline. The new piece of PVC pipe is pulled through behind the drill head, replacing the old pipe as it goes. The old pipe, which has been broken up to accommodate the new PVC pipe, remains underground alongside the new PVC pipe. This is a faster method than open trenching along the length of the road.
