Works Status Active
We are continuing work on Gloucester Street, replacing the gravity wastewater pipeline between Lionel Street and Avonside Drive. Work is commencing on the stormwater pipeline, road and footpath reconstruction on Gloucester Street. Work will start on 25 June and is expected to be completed by the end of October 2012.

This is an update to a previous works notice for Gloucester Street. [1]

  • The red line shows the area of construction for stormwater, roading and footpath reconstruction along Gloucester Street.  Works will start at the Woodham Road end of Gloucester Street.
  • The blue line shows the area of continuing work on the gravity wastewater pipe line on Gloucester Street (between Lionel Street and Avonside Drive).

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 green arrows.
  • Traffic heading north towards Avonside Drive will need to use Ngarimu Street instead of Gloucester Street, as per the yellow line.
  • There will be no on-street parking on the eastern side of Gloucester Street while this work takes place, with the exception of some parking available outside City Express Dairy. 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.

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, vibration and dust if there are dry weather conditions.
  • The work will not impact on current power, telecommunications, wastewater, water or gas services. 
  • 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.
  • We will endeavour to keep any disruptions to a minimum. 
  • We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we do this work.

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.
