What They Say x

Tru-Line Civil successfully delivered the Ashburton CBD Streetscape Renewal Project to Council’s key requirements and exceeded expectations with their ability to flex the timeline to ensure completion of the project on time despite unexpected events including two COVID -19 lockdowns/delays and a major district flood event. They worked exceptionally well with affected CBD business who were experiencing unprecedented adversity at that time. Ashburton District Council
The site was a busy crossroad intersection on the main road into Greymouth which had a very high crash rate and high public profile. Tru-Line completed the Contract to a very high standard. The Contract required some challenging construction methodology which resulted in a timely completed project.  Good Contract Management processes ensured the works were consistent with the Principal’s customer values. Feedback from Opus Project Engineer following the completion of the Marlborough Street/High Street Roundabout
The guys doing the roundabout are doing an absolutely fantastic job, amazing guys who are very courteous, very hardworking. What they have achieved in such a short amount of time is impressive. email from a Greymouth member of public during the completion of the new Marlborough Street Roundabout in 2019
We just wanted to let you know that whoever is doing the new sewer pipe down the middle of the road in Waikawa to Ranui Street are doing a brilliant job. It is tidy, you don’t have to wait long, they’re friendly and considerate, especially in the mornings for traffic movements and we just wanted to thank you all… Member of the public in Picton during the completion of the new Picton Watermain in 2018
