What we are doing

  • Downer, as part of SCIRT, has been doing roading repairs on Bridle Path Road.
  • Starting from Wednesday 26th October we will begin road repairs in the intersection of Cannon Hill Crescent and Bridle Path Road. See Map 2 for location.

Please note: We will not begin this work until we have opened the Bridle Path Road closure. This start date is also weather dependent.

Traffic impacts

Stage 1 worksite

  • From Wednesday 26th for about two weeks Cannon Hill Crescent intersection will be closed from Bridle Path Road to property #6a. See Map 1 for detour.
  • Two-way traffic will be maintained on Bridle Path Road with traffic lights.

Stage 2 worksite

  • After stage 1 is finished the Cannon Hill Crescent intersection will be reopened.
  • We will begin working in the northbound lane of Bridle Path Road. Two-way traffic will be maintained with traffic lights.

Process of roading repairs

  • 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.
  • We will then dig out and reseal earthquake damaged sections of footpath.
  • 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. Please note this is a noisy and dusty process. We will work on one side of the road at a time. Once the surface has been removed we will prepare the road and then lay the new road surface.

Road users, and residents entering properties near the site may experience short delays. Please allow for extra travel time in your journey.

Work impacts

  • For properties near the closure vehicle access to your driveway may be restricted at times. If your access is going to be blocked, a member of the crew will knock on your door beforehand, so you can move your vehicle if necessary.
  • Pedestrian access to properties will be maintained.
  • You may experience an increased level of noise, vibration, and dust associated with this work. We apologise for any inconvenience.

General Information

  • Please contact Downer on 0800 400 310 if you have any specific access requirements that we need to consider e.g. large vehicle deliveries, rubbish collection, or planned works on your property.
  • Our standard work hours are Monday to Friday between the hours of 7.00am and 6.00pm. On occasions we may have 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.
  • All works are subject to favourable weather and on-site construction 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 worksite.
  • Please put your rubbish and recycling out before 6:00pm the day before your collection. Our work crews will move your bins for collection if necessary 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.
