Queens Park sewer line project

Repair work has started on the foul sewer line which crosses Queens Park.

Work on the line, which extends from Queens Drive to Kelvin Street, will be done in two stages and is expected to be completed in May. Information boards will be placed in the Park.

Stage 1: St Andrew’s Track (between Queens Drive and Coronation Avenue) will be closed until the end of March to complete Stage One, and people will need to use alternate routes.

Stage Two: Coronation Avenue to Kelvin Street. Work is expected to be completed by May.

Drainage and Solid Waste Manager, Malcolm Loan, said the Queens Park project was part of the Council’s Sewerage Renewal Strategy.

“This will help to ensure that Invercargill continues to be provided with reliable and high-standard infrastructure,” he said. “We appreciate that park users will be inconvenienced during the project, and thank them for their patience.”
