A new stormwater pipe being installed along Moore Street in the Ashburton CBD will temporarily close the Moore/Cass Street intersection to through-traffic next week, but drivers will still be able to access the road throughout the work.
The intersection will be closed from 7pm - 6am on Wednesday 22 July, and again on Thursday 23 July from 7am - 6pm on Friday 24 July.
The closure will allow a new stormwater pipe to be installed from Cass Street, approximately 40 metres along the centre of Moore Street towards East Street. The work is part of the $15 million CBD Streetscape Renewal Project.
Traffic will still be able to access Moore Street from either Chalmers Avenue (from the east) or East Street (from the west), but will be unable to drive straight through from one end to the next.
Cass Street will remain open at all times.
