Wastewater pipe replacement
Some pipes underneath Cameron Road are still made of clay and are over 100 years old. We are taking the opportunity to prepare for growth and replace and upsize the old wastewater pipes. This upgrade of our wastewater assets will help to realise the Te Papa Spatial Plan, supporting more housing and business developments along the Cameron Road corridor. Around 3km of sewer pipes underneath Cameron Road and connecting to properties and side streets will be upgraded.
Please take extra care travelling through this construction zone and keep to the 30kmph speed limit. It is in place for the safety of all road users and our construction workers. We thank you for your patience and understanding while these essential upgrades are underway.
Main construction works
The streetscape upgrade along Cameron Road is making steady progress. Some of new facilities are emerging, including new footpaths, driveways, two-way cycleway and garden beds. Once each section is complete, the team will continue up the road on the eastern side, then move across the road on the western side and back down again.
The construction work involved to create the new facilities includes upgrading the stormwater system. This work is below the surface and requires careful co-ordination around other services. While it may appear there is not a lot of work happening above ground, the work is progressing below.
Latest road closure information
Traffic will be impacted during the day and at times during off-peak hours at the section of road being worked on. Temporary traffic management will be in place, however access for all residents, businesses and retail will be maintained. The parking area will be closed in sections of the road where work is taking place.
The road layout is changing so some things will look and work differently. Temporary signs may change as work begins or is completed.
Always look before you turn into or off the road and obey all traffic signs. Watch your following distances so you can stop safely. You cannot drive, park or stop on a footpath, shared path or two-way cycleway.
Construction sites are busy, and there’s a lot going on. Share with care and be alert during construction, particularly when visibility is reduced. Where the on-road cycle lane is not available for use, signs advising ‘cycleway closed ahead’ let people who are driving and biking know there are lane changes ahead. Following this sign, cones and signs show bike riders where to move onto shared paths. These signs also let people walking know they may be sharing the path with people on bikes. The shared path is at least 2.2 metres wide. Where ‘road closed ahead’ signs are present, these affect all road users, including people on bikes. If the cycleway is closed, we encourage people who bike to divert to the shared path.
Access will be maintained for pedestrians on a shared pathway in the closed left lane. This will be shared with bike riders through the construction zone. It’s due to be completed late 2023. Until then, all road and path users should be extra careful.
