We're replacing underground water pipes and installing bus priority measures from Deans Avenue to Matipo Street. The bus priority and water pipe renewal are taking place at the same time to minimise disruption to the public.

There is a lot of work to complete both above and below the ground on Riccarton Road. The underground pipes are almost 100 years old and need replacing, and the road above has deteriorated and needs resurfacing and reshaping.
When the road is reconstructed, bus priority measures will be installed as Riccarton Road is one of the city's busiest bus routes. Around 3000 people board buses in Riccarton and more than 800 buses pass Westfield Riccarton each day.
The bus priority measures and underground pipe renewal are being done at the same time to minimise the disruption. The delivery of the project has been split into two stages:
- Stage 1 – Deans Avenue to Harakeke Street
- Stage 2 – Harakeke Street to Matipo Street
The work will cost $18.4 million. You can contact Council on 03 941 8999 (0800 800 169) or RiccartonRoad@ccc.govt.nz for more information.
