What we are doing

  • Downer, as a part of SCIRT, has been repairing the earthquake damaged, publicly owned retaining walls, storm water and wastewater drainage on Reserve Terrace in Lyttelton.
  • Starting within the week of Monday 16 January, we will be repairing two wastewater manholes and three wastewater laterals. This work is expected to take about four weeks to complete, subject to favourable on-site and weather conditions.

Please note that within the week of Monday 23 January we are expected to begin roading preparation and resealing work along Reserve Terrace. Vehicle access will be restricted during these works. You will receive a work notice detailing these repairs and traffic impacts closer to the time.

  • Our work hours are Monday to Friday between the hours of 7.00am and 6.00pm. On occasion we may need to work during the weekend to complete essential work.
  • There will be increased noise, dust and vibration levels associated with this work.
  • Works will have no planned impact on current power, telecommunication, water or gas services. However, the network is still fragile so please be prepared in case there is an unexpected service cut off.
  • Safety is our number one priority. Safety is your responsibility too. Stay clear and stay alert—keep children and pets at a safe distance from the worksite.
  • Please put your rubbish and recycling out before 6:00pm the day before your collection. Our work crews will move your bins to the end of the street for collection and return the empty bins back to your property boundary. Please make sure your house number is visible on the bins so our crews can return the bins to the correct property.
