Earthquake rebuild workers have repaired enough sewer pipes to lay them 77km from the central city to Greta Valley in North Canterbury.
The latest infrastructure rebuild update for the city shows that 13km of sewer pipe were repaired last month, bringing the total length repaired so far to 77km.
The Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team also repaired 657m of water supply pipe, bringing the total length repaired so far to 19km.
That's enough to stretch from the central city to Kaiapoi.
The equivalent of almost 16 rugby fields of paving has been laid in the city so far. Workers laid 13,939 sq m in October, bringing the total to 111,157 sq m.
The 131 construction projects underway last month had a total estimated value of $401.4 million.
That's double that of the city council's annual capital expenditure, which is normally about $200 million.
SCIRT has a grand total of 563 projects underway, either in the design, construction or final completion stage. The total value of those projects is $1,602.6 million.
