What we are doing

Downer, as part of SCIRT, is repairing the earthquake damaged road, wastewater, storm water and freshwater pipes in a section of Moorhouse Avenue.

Our work began in November last year and so far we have completed stages 1, 2, and 3.

Within the week of Monday 6 February, we will begin the final stage of works along Moorhouse Avenue.

This work will take about six weeks to complete, subject to favourable on-site and weather conditions.

During this stage we will be replacing the wastewater, storm water and fresh water main, reconstructing the carriageway, and making repairs to the kerb, channel and footpath.
