We’re on track with installing the underground pipeline that will run through Heathcote to connect Lyttelton Harbour’s wastewater with the existing pump station in Alport Place in Woolston.
Last month our contractors were busy checking for existing services in Alport Place, Mauger Dr and the paddocks alongside Tunnel Road and Scruttons Road.
These investigations works are now complete and we've already laid almost two kilometres of pipeline through the paddocks parallel to Tunnel road, starting at the Ferry road side and working towards Scrutton’s road.
We've now started installing the underground pipeline along Scruttons Road between the paddock and the railway line.
Next, we’ll be opening up sections of the road, starting from Port Hills Road and working along Mauger Drive to Scruttons Road.
These works will be completed in sections with work on Mauger Drive due to start next week.
Multiple construction crews are working on the project to ensure minimum time on the road and disruption to residents.
You will be able to access homes and businesses unless advised otherwise and “start work” notices will be delivered before the construction crews are on-site.
