Riverside Road traffic disruptions while stormwater pipeline replaced

Riverside Road traffic will be disrupted next week as council contractors replace stormwater pipes along Stafford Street and Clifford Street.  Traffic will be restricted to one lane at times. The replacements are likely to take around 6 weeks depending on the weather.

The stormwater infrastructure in this area is near the end of its life and has been budgeted as part of the Whataupoko renewal programme says stormwater engineer Joss Ruifrok. “There is a risk of flooding if the pipe collapsed during heavy rain.”

We apologise for any inconvenience this work causes road users.
