20 November 2020

As you will be aware, we have been carrying out the installation of new stormwater pipework on Brougham Street for a number of weeks. We are now nearing the junction with Queen Street which will necessitate a closure of Queen Street at the junction with Brougham Street. From Wednesday 25th November until Tuesday 22nd December all vehicle access to properties in Queen Street will be via Austin Street.

As our works progress from 1-25 Queen Street, vehicle access to properties adjacent to our worksite will not be possible except in emergencies or by prior arrangement. Please take extra care during the works as traffic on Queen Street will be temporarily two way.

Queen Street will be returned to its normal one way operation over the Christmas break, but please note that the same temporary two way arrangement will be reinstated for the completion of the works from early January 2021.

If you have any concerns or queries regarding these works please do not hesitate to contact

Ben Eveleigh CCL 021911788 or ben@ccl.co.nz.

Thank you for your understanding as we work to improve your city’s infrastructure.

After hours, please call the Wellington City Council Call Centre at 04 499 4444.

What's happening?

We are upgrading the wastewater and stormwater mains in the area of Queen Street and Brougham Street.

The wastewater pipeline along Queen Street is old and is being replaced with a new system. This will prevent leakage of wastewater and provide an overall benefit to the local environment.

The new stormwater system will reduce the potential of flooding on Queen Street.

The new stormwater alignment along Queen Street also moves the access and maintenance points from private properties into public roadways and footpaths. 

Traffic delays

There will be traffic delays during the project, but these will be managed to minimise the impact on residents and commuters.  

The intersection of Elizabeth and Brougham Street will be closed for a period during the project so residents will need to enter and exit the street via Austin Street.

There will be a safe and well signposted detour in place for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians

Working with the local community

We are working with Clyde Quay School to ensure disruption of the school, students and their families is managed. 

We are also working and with the owner of the Mt Victoria Foodmarket to ensure disruption is minimised.  

When does it start?

The construction work will begin on 19 October and is likely to be completed by March 2021.

The contractor is CCL, contact Ben Eveleigh 021 911 788.
