Change to Sumner Main Road at Redcliffs from next Monday


Sumner commuters: one-way change from Monday, 23 June, then full road closure one month

SCIRT delivery team Fulton Hogan is about to install a new wastewater pressure main pipe on Main Road between McCormacks Bay Road and the moa cave in Redcliffs. This work will affect road users travelling towards Sumner from thisMonday, 23 June. The project should take about six weeks to complete.

Traffic impact
This work will require a lane closure and at a later stage a temporary full road closure along this part of Main Road. Road users will be detoured along Celia Street and Beachville Road.

Stage one
Main Road, past the moa cave, will be open for one-way traffic to town-bound traffic only from Monday, 23 June. Traffic heading towards Sumner will be detoured via Beachville Road. This section of Main Road will be one-way for up to two weeks, before a full road closure on Main Road is needed.
Stage two
From approximately Monday, 7 July Main Road will be completely closed near the moa cave. Traffic heading towards Sumner will continue to be detoured via Beachville Road, traffic heading towards town will be detoured via Celia Street. This work should take around a month to complete.

Be on the lookout for changes in traffic management and expect some delays. Allow extra time for your journeys.

• Please watch your speed along Beachville Road and Celia Street and be considerate of residents. SCIRT prefers not to detour traffic onto quiet residential streets, but there are a lack of options along this section of work on Main Road.
• Work has been undertaken on the road surface on Celia Street and Beachville Road to bring it up to a standard suitable for the amount of traffic needing to take the detour.
• Fulton Hogan will monitor the condition of the roads during the detour period to ensure it is kept at an acceptable standard.


Hasn’t this already been fixed?
Local residents will be familiar with the Fulton Hogan crews who installed a new wastewater pressure main under Main Road between Barnett Park and the moa cave after the earthquakes. This pressure main now need to be extended and joined into the new pipes along McCormacks Bay Road.


If you would like to sign up to receive email updates about any of these projects please let us know by emailing rebuildinfo@fultonhogan.com

NB: It was earlier thought this six weeks of work would start in the first week of July, however, it is now able to start next week.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
