What we're doing

The earthquake damaged water main on Godley Quay needs to be replaced. This is an extensive job that will take around three months to complete.

The work will be done in sections to limit the amount of people we are affecting at one time. We will be beginning at the northern end of Godley Quay and moving south towards Cyrus Williams Quay. When working directly in front of properties vehicle access to driveways will be unavailable during working hours.

Where possible we will make access available to driveways at night.

Traffic lights will be used to maintain two-way traffic at all times.

What to expect

A trench being dug by machinery surrounded by fencing.

Machinery, and a worker in a trench, surrounded by mounds of earth and road cones.

Workers, and machinery in a trench containing pipes, separated from a road lane by road cones.

Example of traffic impact

Traffic lights will be in place maintaining traffic in both directions. Please be on the look out as our worksite progresses further down the street. Pedestrian access will be available past the worksite and to properties at all times. Parking will not be available directly next to our worksite.
