Roads are part of the essential infrastructure being rebuilt by SCIRT (Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team). The recovery of Christchurch depends on us keeping our road network operating safely and efficiently. A smoothly flowing transport system, moving people and goods, greatly improves the quality of life in our city.
With the roadwork, we typically fix anything between road-facing property boundaries and the road itself. This could be kerbs and channels, grass, footpaths, retaining walls, road furniture, or signs and signals. Sometimes the roadways include bike lanes or transit lanes. For more information, check out our Frequently Asked Questions document.
