Removal of roads, new sports fields & a new stormwater area

As part of the implementation of the Recovery Plan, which involves creating new sports fields, recreation reserves and a stormwater management area in the Kaiapoi East Regeneration area, Rooney Earthmoving Ltd have cleared many of the trees which were situated on the future sports fields.

The next step involves mobilising heavy machinery to the site to begin removing redundant roads and street lights etc.

Due to safety concerns. the area indicated on the map is closed to the public. It is now a construction site managed by Rooney Earthmoving Ltd until June 2019.
