Maraekākaho Road project details

To upgrade the wastewater network we need to replace the existing pipe. This means we need to dig up the road and will have to reduce traffic to one lane at times. We’ll have speed reductions and alternative walking paths in place to keep everyone safe.

There will be short periods of time when residents may not be able to access their drive-way. The contractor will be in touch directly with the affected residents to give more details on what will be happening and when.

Residents can expect to see workers on site from 7am to 5pm and will hear some noise.
