Current Works

13th September 2021 Update

The works in Renwick had to stop over the lock down but we have since re-started works and finished sealing the road in Kowhai Drive and Chante Crescent.

The next stage of works is going to be along Brook Street (between Havelock Street and State Highway 6). During these works the road is going to be turned in to a one-way system. That means cars will have to access Brook Street from Havelock Street. Cars that are travelling along State Highway 6 will be required to go around the block in order to access Brook Street. The parking on Brook Street will be maintained for the school.

26th July 2021 Update

Works are now completely finished on Boyce St and traffic has been opened back up to 2-ways.

Our crew are now working on the intersection of Kowhai Drive and Chante Crescent. The recent wet weather has slowed down progress but we are hoping to be finished in this area by the end of August.

Please feel free to stop and talk to any of our teams if you have any concerns or questions.

29th June 2021 Update

The new watermain on Boyce Street (from River Terrace to Anglesea Street) was successfully connected on Tuesday night, 22nd June 2021.
We now have some final tidy up works to complete on the watermain and then the road will be asphalted and re-opened.

The next stage of works is going to be in Kowhai Drive and Chante Crescent. This stage is expected to take 6 – 7 weeks.

We appreciate your patience during these works.

10th May 2021 Update

Boyce Street has now been closed to a one-lane system and will remain closed until the end of June 2021.

Disturbance in this area will be kept to a minimum. This area will mainly be used for storing materials and equipment.
