What we are doing

  • Downer, as part of SCIRT, is repairing the earthquake damaged road, wastewater, storm water and freshwater pipes in a section of Moorhouse Avenue.
  • Within the week of Monday 19 December 2016, we will lay a temporary road seal on the Stage 1 section of road. See Map 1 for location of works.
  • Once sealed, the lane drop for eastbound traffic will be removed. Traffic flow will be restored to normal on Moorhouse Avenue over our Christmas and New Year's shut-down period.

SCIRT will shut down this worksite from Friday 23 December 2016 to Monday 16 January 2017, over the Christmas and New Year's break.

SCIRT would like to thank you for your patience throughout 2016.

Have a safe and happy festive season.
