• 1,700 metres of 450 mm watermain

• 2,400 metres of concrete curb and gutter

Roundabouts were installed at the Hudson Road/Boucherie Road intersection and the Anders Road/Cordova Way/Boucherie Road intersection.

Miscellaneous landscaping work will continue following the opening of the roadway. Motorists are asked to obey traffic control personnel.

Drivers have been forced to use detours through residential areas of Lakeview Heights during the construction, which took place between Stewart Road and Ogden Road.
