What are we doing

  • City Care, as part of SCIRT, is repairing the earthquake damaged storm water and the road surface in Cuthberts Road.
  • Because of high ground water and the location of the worksite, a one system in Cuthberts Road will be in place from Monday 16 January for about three weeks.
  • Please follow on-site traffic signage and take care when exiting your driveway.

Traffic Impacts

  • Cuthberts Road is one-way from Breezes Road to Nugent Street. The detour is Nugent Street to Shortland Street to Breezes Road.
  • Resident access will be maintained. However, there may be driveway access restrictions when we are working directly outside your property. We will let you know before any restrictions are put in place.

General Information

  • We want to stay safe and we want you and your family to be safe too. Please stay alert, drive to the conditions, follow on-site signage.
  • Our standard hours are Monday to Friday 7am to 6pm. Sometimes we will work over the weekend to finish work.
  • The work will result in increased dust, noise and vibrations. We will try to keep any disruption to a minimum and we apologise for any inconvenience.
  • All work is subject to favourable weather and on-site construction conditions.
  • Your rubbish and recycling will not change. Please put your bins in the normal spot by 5pm the night before collection and our crew will move and return them if needed.
  • Please contact us on 0800 632 889 if you have any access needs e.g. nurse/doctor visits, Meals on Wheels or planned work on your property.

The design guidelines of the SCIRT programme do not allow for new roads to be built in all areas, so not all roads will be resurfaced kerb-to-kerb. Only those roads that were severely damaged in the earthquakes or are critical commuter transport routes will be fully rebuilt. This means most roads are patch repaired and the resulting surface may not be totally smooth.

How could the work impact you?

  • Footpaths may be closed while repairs are done and some small detours may be necessary. Please follow our signage.
  • Repairing roads can be noisy because of the heavy machinery needed. We apologise for the disruption and will work quickly to get this job done.
