Pudding Hill on the mend

A two kilometre section of Pudding Hill Road outside Methven will be on the receiving end of rehabilitation work this month, fixing problems with the road bitumen that had been failing in hot conditions.​

Ashburton District Council has awarded the $430,000 contract to Fulton Hogan who will complete the road works for 2.1km east from the Drayton Road intersection.

“Work is programmed to start mid-January and is expected to be completed in two months,” Council said in a statement.

“Once finished, Fulton Hogan will move to Fairfield Road West outside Fairton to reconstruct almost half a kilometre of the road between State Highway One and the railway crossing.”

The $150,000 project will repair pavement failures as well as remove a build up of excess bitumen on the road surface.
