Cass Street, Kaiapoi, Closed on Thursday

If you are planning to travel down Cass Street in Kaiapoi on Thursday, allow yourself an extra minute or two, as a section of the road is going to be closed on the east side of Williams Street between it and Meadow Street, from 7am to 6pm.

The closure is due to the need to repair a water main.20171107_Cass Street Closure

Detour signs will be in place, directing westbound traffic to Williams Street via Meadow Street and Beach Road.

Eastbound commuters will be able to access the west side of Cass Street via Sewell and Jones Streets.

While an 11-hour road closure has been forecast for the work, the road could be reopened sooner, should the repair be completed in a shorter timeframe.

Last week, repairs on a main near the Ohoka Road-Williams Street intersection were completed ahead of schedule, allowing the road to be reopened sooner, which limited the inconvenience to commuters.

We apologise for any inconvenience Thursday’s road closure may cause.
