Road markings signal start of CBD revitalisation work


Ashburton residents will begin noticing unusual road markings around the Ashburton town centre from tomorrow (Tuesday 22 October) when the Council begins preparing the streets for the physical works of the major Ashburton CBD Revitalisation Project.
Road markings indicating where important underground services are located will begin appearing on the town centre streets to assist surveyors with detailed plans ready for work to begin in the new year.
Council Environmental Services Group Manager Jane Donaldson says the road markings signal the first hints of physical work starting on the CBD upgrade.
"Major physical work on the streets is programmed to begin next year, but before this starts, we need to have a comprehensive understanding of exactly where our underground services are located. This will assist in preparing a detailed work programme for the upgrades to start."
Different spray paint colours will be used to identify the services and their location and will be removed after the surveyor has captured the information.
