Pipeline Upgrade Work – Buller Road, Reefton

2nd February, 2021

Council’s contractor for the Reefton Water Supply Upgrade works are upgrading the water pipelines along Buller Road in Reefton. The work will be done between Potter and Elizabeth Streets.  The works commenced on the 20 January and is planned to last approximately two to four weeks (weather dependent).

While this work is being done there could be times when the road width is reduced, or roads and entranceways are blocked between the hours of 7.45am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday.

The contractor will endeavour to cause as little disruption as possible. They will notify affected residents before roads or entranceways are blocked, or the road width is reduced, so arrangements can be made to make this easier for all involved.

The work is part of the Reefton Water Supply Upgrade works that sets out to ensure safe, compliant drinking water for the township and ‘fit for future’ infrastructure. Council budgeted $1,440,000 in the 2020/2021 Annual Plan for this work.

A reminder that Reefton remains on a precautionary Boil Water Notice.

Council sincerely thanks residents for their co-operation.
