Kaiapoi Watermain Renewals

The Council are working on installing watermains along Williams Street and Hills Street, as the pipes are old and need to be replaced.

From Monday 6 July contractors are working in stage two of works, between Fuller Street and the Ohoka Road roundabout. The watermains will be laid on the western side of Williams Street first, and will then cross over to the eastern side.

Traffic impacts

  • Two-way traffic will be maintained on Williams Street during the work.
  • A section of pipe needs to be laid across both lanes of Fuller and Carew Streets.
  • Fuller Street will be closed at the intersection of Williams Street from Monday 13 July until Friday 31 July.
  • Carew Street will be closed at the intersection of Williams Street from Monday 20 July until Friday 7 August.
  • Traffic will be detoured via Hilton, Peraki and Carew Streets.
  • There will be no entry into Fuller Street or Carew Street from Williams Street during the closures.
  • Pedestrians will be directed to the opposite side of the road to the work site. Please follow signage or ask the team for assistance if needed.
  • A temporary speed limit of 30km/h will be in place through the work area.
  • The road shoulder will be closed. Please take care as cyclists will be merging with traffic.

We thank businesses and residents for their patience while we have been working in this area.
