Riki and crew are starting on there next project completing the remaining concrete drainage (525 to 900 plus sumps and manholes), Water and Sewer Mains plus all riders mains and shared services. They will be using the recently acquired Atlas Volvo ECR145EL. In 2021 Volvo did a major upgrade with some awesome features.
Atlas is undertaking Water and Sewer upgrades and renewals for the Waimakariri District Council from March to December 2021 within the Tuahiwi region. We will be undertaking various portions of works throughout the area over the next few months and also undertaking some roading improvements as we complete through some areas. This includes some islands, swales, and road widening along with speed reductions to improve safety in the area.
Atlas have welcomed two new items this week as we gear up for new jobs across the South Island and the teams are excited! Traffic got there hands on the new TL3 this week and are putting it straight into work whilst Civil are getting used to the new Volvo 14t Excavator ready for a small development project including all services, retaining wall, and driveway.
Riki, Ben, and Dave started last week on the new MCR Southern Express Cycleway running through Riccarton. Their job is to install the new drainage and sumps with Dower doing the prep and roading and remaining works close behind. The guys started on one of the sumps up stream so that section can be completed and opened first.
