We’re about to start work on Riccarton Road replacing old underground water and sewer pipes between Matipo Street and Hansons Lane. This work is due to start early July, but potholing for services is currently underway.
Riccarton Road will stay open while our contractor Fulton Hogan does the work, but there will be delays. This project is expected to continue until March 2022.
There’s also several other projects planned in the Riccarton area between June to November 2021. See below images for works underway in June/July and keep up to date about what’s planned at www.ccc.govt.nz/riccarton
