Another Regeneration Project
The sewers in
Courtenay Drive, Charters Street and Wyber Place suffered significant
earthquake damage during the 2010/2011 earthquakes. The existing wastewater
pump station also sustained damage. New wastewater pump stations are to be
built at the corner of Wyber Place and Courtenay Drive and at the corner of
Charters Street and Courtenay Drive to replace the damaged pump station. These
new pump stations also remove the need to replace some deep sewers along Courtenay
Drive. Other sewers in Courtenay Drive, Charters Street and Wyber Place will be
replaced or repaired. A 1.2m diameter stormwater pipe to the east of Courtenay
Drive was also damaged and will be partially replaced.
The project is
expected to be completed later this year.

the new infrastructure to be installed as quickly as possible. There will be no
restriction to accessing homes for residents. On-street parking will be
temporarily affected in the immediate work area. Road cones will indicate where
parking will not be available.

The trenching works has damaged
some of the trees on the west side of the Courtenay Drive and these will be
removed. These are all trees that had been identified for replacement as
part of the rebuild of the road. The
roading project is expected to be underway in early 2018 and be finished mid-2018.
As from Monday 18 September a
temporary road across the corner of the Charters St/Courtenay Dr intersection
has been installed. There is a lot going on at this corner for the sewerage
rebuild and this temporary road reduces disruption and makes access to the
Charters Street properties as simple as possible. The road is formed with 1m
high barriers and has a 30km speed limit. Traffic will return to Courtenay
Drive as soon as possible, although the road closure in Courtenay Drive will
still be maintained in other forms with the projects forecast to be complete in
The area used by the
temporary road will be reinstated by the contractor, including grassing and
fencing, on completion of the work.
