Renewal works of drinking water pipes in Gloucester Street, Porirua commenced on 29 April and we expect to have it completed at the end of June. 

Hours of work are between 7 am - 5 pm from Monday to Friday. 

We will be carrying out the upgrade in three stages. Traffic management through these stages will vary with a majority of the works completed under a one-way closure with detour. However, two lane diversions and manual traffic controller operations will be required for works across Mungavin Avenue.

We apologise for this inconvenience and will try to keep access open to properties where it is possible to do so. However, there will be stages where there will be some restriction.

There will also be some on-street parking restrictions at stages along Gloucester Street. We will work to keep these to a minimum. We ask you to please not park your vehicle within the coned areas. This will help us get our work done safely and as quickly as possible.
