Water main renewal to get underway

Ashburton District residents are advised to expect traffic delays along Burnett Street from next week as water main renewal work gets underway on Monday 7 November.

The renewal work will replace the Street’s water mains and is expected to be finished by 20 December 2016. 

Council Service Delivery Group Manager Neil McCann says the work is a necessary project that Council is undertaking and advises that vehicle access will be affected.

“On-street parking and traffic speed will be reduced throughout this renewal as trenches are dug for the new piping. We understand the inconvenience this may cause, and are very appreciative of the community’s cooperation.”
