Utilities and Pavement Investigations

 

Before main construction works can begin, we need to undertake a number of site investigations within the project area.

These works include locating utilities such as power, fibre broadband and water assets, in addition to testing the ground conditions, and assessing pavement thickness / materials. The investigations will commence from 18th January 2024 through to June 2024.

To safely complete these works and minimise disruption, some investigations will be undertaken at night. No work will be carried out on Friday or Saturday nights, or during public holidays. All works will be undertaken in accordance with the Environment Court conditions, including the project noise standards.

The equipment being used for these investigations can sometimes cause noise or vibration. These effects will be addressed by conducting work during hours that are less disruptive to residents or businesses where possible, and undertaking noise and vibration monitoring. All works will be undertaken in accordance with the requirements of NZS 6803:1999 and the relevant designation and resource consent conditions.

Temporary traffic control and fencing will surround all work areas, with stop/go traffic management to maintain vehicle/ cyclist access along the street and around works when needed. Pedestrian access to businesses and residences will not be affected.
