How our work could impact you

Traffic impact

  • Gloucester Street will be open while this work takes place but will be operating under a one way system heading south only in the direction of Woodham Road, as per the black arrow.
  • Traffic heading north towards Avonside Drive will need to use Ngarimu Street instead of Gloucester Street, as per the black arrows
  • There will be no off street parking on the eastern side of Gloucester Street while this work takes place. Pedestrian access will continue to be provided for the duration of this project.
  • At times driveway access for residents will be restricted, but we will advise residents directly when this will occur.
  • Please contact us if you have any specific access requirements that we need to consider e.g. Nurse Maude, Meals on Wheels or other planned works on your property.

Private property access

  • We may need to enter private properties in the affected work area to connect residents' laterals from their property boundary to the repaired gravity wastewater pipeline.
  • An access and restoration agreement has been distributed to affected residents that property owners must complete and sign. Without the affected owners consent we will be unable to carry out any work on your property to connect your wastewater line to the Council owned wastewater line. Please return the completed form to us by Monday 30 April 2012. You can call us on free phone 0508 718 719 when the form is complete and we will arrange to collect it from you. Or you can post or email the form to us.

General impacts of the work

  • This work will take place during the hours of 7.00am – 6.00pm, Monday to Saturday.
  • The work will result in some noise and dust if there are dry weather conditions.
  • The work will not impact on current power, telecommunications, sewer, water or gas services.
  • However we may need to request residents to restrict their wastewater use for a short period while we are connecting their lateral to the wastewater main. We will advise you directly if this is the case.
  • All works are subject to favourable weather and on-site construction conditions.
  • During the period of construction, we ask that you observe special cordons around construction areas for you and your family's safety.

Rubbish collection

While this portion of Gloucester Street is reduced to one lane, we would like to assist you with the collection of your Christchurch City Council rubbish and recycling bins. If you could please put your bins out before 5pm every Tuesday, we will take them to the collection point outside the construction area and then return them to your property the next day. Please ensure your bins have your house number on them so we know which properties to return them to.
