Riccarton Road upgrade

We are currently upgrading a section of Riccarton Road – one of Christchurch’s busiest road corridors. This involves replacing more than 3400 metres of watermain, wastewater and stormwater piping, resurfacing 8000 square metres of pavement and installing new streetscaping.

Teams have successfully completed the majority of the watermain and are now working to replace the wastewater pipes, carrying about ten percent of Christchurch’s waste. This is a challenging project as more than 1000 metres of wastewater pipes need to be replaced at four metres, while ensuring two-way traffic is maintained and minimum disruption to our stakeholders.

Our design construction focuses on minimising project duration for businesses and residents, by setting up three separate work sites along the 800 metre road length with additional resource on standby. Where possible, the programme is also regularly altered to better suit stakeholder needs.

This work follows on from the award-winning resurfacing work in November 2018 where we sealed a section of Riccarton Road in just four weeks to reduce impact on surrounding businesses.
