The signs are up, the tools are out, and Fulton Hogan has now started work on this complex project along Riccarton Road.
Almost one kilometre of sewer pipe needs to be replaced, and it’s buried four metres below the road – very deep for sewer pipes, which means a lot of digging and about one metre of progress each day.
We're also replacing water mains under the road. Once the underground work is finished, we'll rebuild the road and then widen it, creating bus priority measures and extra space for emergency vehicles, which struggle to get through Riccarton Road traffic at times.
