Where we are working

Map. Location of works. Sourced from LINZ data, Crown Copyright reserved. Work area (highlighted in red): Landsdowne Terrace (between 81 and Wedgewood Avenue; 81 is south from Wedgewood Avenue), and crossing Wedgewood Avenue at the northeastern side of the intersection with Landsdowne Terrace; Road closure/No access: Wedgewood Avenue (at Landsdowne Terrace).

What we are doing

In the New Year we will be repairing a section of the water supply network on Landsdowne Terrace. There will be two stages to the work. Firstly we will replace the earthquake damaged water supply pipe and install pressurised water mains. This stage will take approximately one month to complete.

We will then reconstruct the highlighted section of road on Landsdowne Terrace, which will take approximately two months to complete. There will be approximately a two–three month gap between the two stages of work, in which the traffic management on Landsdowne Terrace and Wedgewood Avenue will be removed.

Traffic impacts

A priority give-way system will be in place on this section of Landsdowne Terrace for the duration of our work. There may be occasion where access to your property may be restricted. A member of our team will be touch closer to the time if this is necessary. The intersection of Wedgewood Avenue and Landsdowne Terrace will be closed to through traffic. Access to Wedgewood Avenue will be maintained through Bowenvale Avenue.

We ask motorists to please be alert to changes in the traffic management, follow on-site signage and drive to the conditions.

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 work site.

We wanted to let you know

Please be aware our dates are subject to change, as repairing the earthquake damage to pipes, roads and bridges in our city is a big job.

We are getting there, but sometimes we run into problems part way through a project. These can cause unexpected delays or disrupt communities more than we thought. We will update you if there are any significant changes.

  • Our standard work hours are Monday to Friday between the hours of 7am to 6pm. We may also need to work weekends to carry out essential work.

  • If your property is within the traffic management area, please clearly label your bins with your street address and put the bins out by 5pm the night before your collection day so that our crew can move them to a suitable collection point.
