We’ve started work to install new pipelines that will run down Hargreaves Street and along Wallace Street, connecting the reservoir to the city network. We’re beginning at the top of Hargreaves Street, which means initially there’ll be minimal impact on commuter traffic (although it will be quite disruptive for residents as we work down the street).
However, from early August our work will start to affect Wallace Street traffic in off-peak hours. There will be Stop/Go traffic management from Monday to Saturday 9am–4pm. Then from 10 June until late November there’ll be no access to Wright Street from Hargreaves Street – entry and exit to Wright Street will be via Hutchinson Street.
You can find more information about the pipelines programme of works here.
At this stage, we expect to start work on the reservoir in March 2020.
We’re grateful for your patience as we carry out this work to build a stronger city.
