What we are doing

  • We are installing a new wastewater main on Rolleston Avenue between Hereford Street and Worcester Street.
  • We will start work at the Rolleston Avenue / Hereford Street intersection in the week beginning Monday 18 March 2013 and work north towards Worcester Street. The work will continue until mid April 2013.
  • Our hours of work are 7:00am to 6:00pm Monday to Sunday.
  • The work involves trenching (digging down) to remove damaged pipes and replacing them with new pipes. The work may result in dust, noise and vibration. We will endeavour to keep any disruption to a minimum.
  • The work has two types of traffic management (phase one and phase two). Phase one will be in place while we are working on Rolleston Avenue between Hereford and Worcester Street. Phase two will be in place while we work at the intersection Rolleston Avenue and Worcester Street. Each phase is explained under the traffic impacts section:

Traffic impacts

Phase one

  • During phase one we will be working in the southbound lane (the lane closest to the Arts Centre) along Rolleston Avenue from Hereford Street to Worcester Street. This means that the southbound lane of Rolleston Avenue will be closed.
  • Motorists who wish to travel south on Rolleston Avenue between Hereford Street and Gloucester Street will need to use our signed detour. Motorists who wish to travel north on Rolleston Avenue will be unaffected during phase one. Please see map 2 for details:

Phase two

  • During phase two we will be working at the Rolleston Avenue / Worcester Street intersection. We expect to start work at the intersection in late March 2013. When we reach the intersection we will close Rolleston Avenue at Worcester Street for northbound and southbound traffic. We expect to be working at the intersection for approximately two weeks.
  • Day and night work will take place during this phase.
  • Motorists who wish to travel north on Rolleston Avenue between Hereford Street and Gloucester Street will need to use our signed detour. The detour for motorists travelling south on Rolleston Avenue between Hereford Street and Gloucester Street will remain the same. Please see map 3 for details:
