Printer-friendly version

What: Segment repair of a wastewater pipe.

When: Monday 6 March 2017, starting at 7:00pm for one night.

Where: Outside 69 Rutherford Street, Woolston. 

Traffic: Two-way traffic maintained. Reduced on-street parking.


What we are doing 

  • Starting the night of Monday 6 March 2017, Downer will be working outside 69 Rutherford Street to replace a section of the wastewater mainline. See Map 1 for location of works.
  • This work will take one night to complete, subject to favorable on-site and weather conditions. We will be working from 7:00pm - 6:00am.
  • This work is being done at night to minimize impact to businesses and traffic flow during the day.
  • A lateral is the pipe that connects a property to the wastewater pipe in middle of the street. We will be digging a trench in the middle of the road to remove a section of the damaged pipe and replacing it with a new piece.
  • Once the new pipe is laid the trench will be backfilled and compacted. Following this a separate roading crew will seal the trench from 2:00am-6:00am.

Please note: For those living nearest to the worksite you may experience some increased noise and lighting coming from our equipment. See details overleaf. We will do our best to keep disruption to a minimum and appreciate your patience while we complete these final repairs.
