What we are doing

The City Care SCIRT team will be replacing a wastewater main and carrying out road surface work on Pages Road, between Anzac Drive and Shuttle Drive (near Cowles Stadium), from Monday 3 October 2016 until mid-December 2016.

Wastewater replacement

  • City Care, as part of SCIRT, is replacing the earthquake damaged gravity wastewater main on Pages Road, between Anzac Drive and Farnborough Street. This wastewater pipe is not part of the new vacuum wastewater system. It is the main wastewater pipe that services the New Brighton area.
  • As part of this work we will be open trenching to install the new pipe. This involves excavating a section of the road about two metres wide and up to three metres deep to access the damaged pipe.
  • Due to the ground conditions we need to secure these trenches by using a technique called sheet piling. Nearby residents may experience ground-borne noise and vibrations during the installation of sheet piles.
  • We will also be using dewatering pumps due to high ground water levels in the area. The pump is used to keep the trench dry.

Roading and kerb, channel and storm water

  • We will be fully reconstructing Pages Road between Anzac Drive and Rowan Avenue and resurfacing the road between Rowan Avenue and Shuttle Drive (Cowles Stadium).
  • The current road surface on Pages Road in this section was a temporary seal to allow the trench to settle after our vacuum wastewater work last year.
  • Our kerb, channel and storm water repair work will continue along Pages Road, from Anzac Drive to Rowan Avenue.
  • There will be road closures at the Pages Road intersections as we work past. We will notify you before these closures are put in place and signage will be in place.

Road reconstruction stages

  • The first stage of road reconstruction is milling of the road. During milling you can expect loud noise and increased levels of dust.
  • The second stage will be preparing the road. This stage will be less disruptive.
  • The final stage is sealing the road with new asphalt.
  • All works are subject to favourable weather and on-site construction conditions.

Traffic impacts

  • A one-way system heading west (towards the city) will be in place on Pages Road, between Anzac Drive and Breezes Road.
  • A detour route will be in place on Breezes Road to Wainoni Road (see Map 1).
  • There will be no on-street parking in the work area. Please follow site signage.
  • For residents living in Pages Road please take care when exiting your driveway and travel in the correct direction.
  • Driveway access on Pages Road will be unavailable when we are working directly in front of your driveway. We will let you know the day before to allow you time to move your car.

Reasons why we are putting in the one-way

  • To access and work in the trench there needs to be enough space for health and safety reasons—for the safety of workers and road users.
  • The direction of the one-way was chosen so it would not delay buses going into the city.
  • Two-way traffic would take longer to complete this work.
  • To minimise congestion on the side streets off Pages Road.
