Council asks drivers to avoid Moorhouse Avenue

Media Release 11 October 2005

Christchurch City Council asks drivers to avoid Moorhouse Avenue

Christchurch City Council asks commuters and other drivers to avoid the eastward lanes of Moorhouse Avenue tomorrow because work to repair a large collapse in the roadway must begin tomorrow (Wednesday, 12 October) morning.

The hole, which has probably been caused by water from the failure of either a sewer or water main, became apparent earlier this evening and is on the corner Moorhouse and Montreal streets.

Work to fix it will mean the east-bound, or north, side of Moorhouse will be restricted to a single through lane and will create a bottleneck with long delays at peak time.

“Anyone who comes along Moorhouse from the Hagley Park end and is wanting to go further east than Montreal Street should think about an alternative route,” says Peter McDonald, the Council’s pavement maintenance team leader.

“Until we get into it, we won’t know how much work is needed to repair it, but it’s likely to take all day and perhaps into Thursday morning.”

- The CCC would appreciate it if broadcaster newsrooms could pass this message on to their drivetime show hosts.

Luxon’s repeated use of the term “settled law” has been particularly tone deaf, given that several of the US Supreme Court justices used that very same term during their confirmation hearings...
