Council proposes fast-tracking plan to prevent flooding in Christchurch's east

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey East Christchurch,

A $12 million plan to prevent flooding in Christchurch’s east could be fast tracked, just weeks after a councillor dug an unlawful trench in the same spot.

The Christchurch City Council will decide next week whether to bring forward work budgeted for 2024-25 to build a new stormwater treatment basin, a new stopbank and a tidal wetland in the triangle of land between Pages Rd, Anzac Drive and the Ōtākaro Avon River.

If approved, detailed design work will start this year and tenders will go out in 2021.

The work will reduce the risk of flooding in homes in Aranui and Bexley and improve the quality of the stormwater flowing into the river. It will also help manage local drainage issues, the council said.

What do you think about this proposal? Let us know below.
