Christchurch International Airport Limited

Pound Road Realignment

Scope of Works

In February 2014, Blakely Construction Limited was subcontracted by Hawkins Infrastructure to complete the deviation of Pound Road around Harewood Golf Course. This was an extensive project that involved not only the reconstruction of Pound Road itself, but also earthworks for road construction, including engineered and non-engineered fill, construction of storm water facilities including berms, swales and soak pits, construction of raised islands, metalling and sealing of access-ways and vehicle crossings, trenching and ducting for services and removal of the existing roadway. Under the contract, Blakely Construction was also required to complete re-profiling work in the Christchurch International Airport runway end safety area (RESA) and construct a new car park at the Canterbury Golf Office.
