Businesses along Riccarton Road affected by the current road works have been given a brief respite.

City Councillor Vicki Buck says the work being done between Deans Avenue and Harakeke Street is a major issue: "So here’s the latest thinking so you are all aware of current proposals. I will update as things are more certain."
