Residents and property owners in and around Kaiapoi East and Kaiapoi
South received flyers in early May detailing what the roading repair and
replacement works involve.
Council is keen to hear back from residents about these roading plans. There
will be staffed information sessions at the Ruataniwha Kaiapoi Civic Centre on
Thursday 11 May 5pm to 7pm, and at the Gray Crescent Reserve (Blackwell
Crescent end) on Saturday 13 May 1.30pm – 2.30pm.
Other works are also underway in the Kaiapoi South and Kaiapoi East
regeneration areas to repair earthquake-damaged infrastructure. This work
involves repairs to the water, sewer and stormwater networks, which started in
May 2017 and will continue for the rest of the year.
