What We Are Doing

We installed an underground chamber at this location during the school summer holidays of 2019. The chamber along with the new infrastructure being installed along the River Kelvin will help prevent items which are wrongly flushed down the toilet – such as rags, baby wipes, plastic cotton buds, etc. - from overflowing into the River Kelvin.


During construction 


Otago Street will be closed to vehicular traffic and diversions will be in place. Pedestrian access will be maintained and cyclists will be able to get through though we ask that you dismount and walk through on the pavement.

Businesses near the work will be open as usual. Access to the rear car park of Otago Street businesses will still be maintained.

You may notice some noise during the works. Work will be from 8am and finish by 6pm. We will work Monday to Friday but may also have to work over some weekends.

Cowan Street and Glasgow St (from Otago St to Bank St) one way systems will be reversed.

Diversions will be in place via Park Road.
