What we are doing
- Downer, as part of SCIRT, is repairing the earthquake damaged footpath, kerb, channel and carriageway on Bridle Path Road.
Bridle Path Road
- Stage 1
- From Monday 19 September.
- One-way closure on Bridle Path Road between Cannon Hill Crescent and Main Road. Southbound traffic maintained. This one-way will be in place for about three weeks.
- Stage 2
- This will follow on after stage 1 is complete.
- Bridle Path Road closed between Cannon Hill Crescent and Main Road. This closure will be in place for about four weeks.
- During both stages of the work Ferrymead Terrace will be closed to vehicles. Residents access maintained.
- Ferrymead Terrace will be used as an access path for cyclists and pedestrians, while Bridle Path Road footpath is unavailable.
- Residents of Ferrymead Terrace will receive a separate notice.
Process of roading repairs
- Stage 1:
- We will begin by repairing damaged sections of kerb and channel. First we will dig out these sections and then we will pour new concrete.
- Then we will dig out and reseal earthquake damaged sections of footpath and replace handrails.
- Stage 2:
- Lastly we will repair the carriageway (the part of the road you drive on).
- To repair the carriageway we will remove sections of the existing road surface. This is a noisy and dusty process. Once the surface has been removed we will prepare the road and then lay the new road surface.
Old kerb and channel being removed:
Suggested detour routes for drivers
- If your access is going to be blocked, a member of the crew will knock on your door beforehand, to allow you to move your vehicle.
- You will be able to safely access your property on foot.
- You will experience general construction noise, vibration, and dust while we are doing this work. We apologise for any inconvenience.
- During the works we will also have other sites of work further south along Bridle Path Road. Two-way traffic will be maintained. At times, we will use stop go, or traffic lights.
- In both stage 1 and 2 of the works Ferrymead Terrace will be used as an access path for cyclists and pedestrians, while Bridle Path Road footpath is unavailable.
Road users, and residents entering properties near the site may experience short delays. Please allow for extra travel time in your journey.

- Our standard work hours are Monday to Friday between the hours of 7.00am and 6.00pm. On occasion we may need to work on a Saturday 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.
The funding for the SCIRT programme does not allow for new roads in all areas. SCIRT will fully rebuild some roads, partially rebuild others and in many cases roads will only be patched or resurfaced. Only roads that are severely damaged or are critical transport routes will be fully rebuilt.
