Latest Project Updates

Updates on the Rutherford Street - Stage 2 stormwater project

To keep our Smart Little City running well, we need to upgrade and improve some of our older infrastructure, including our stormwater network.

We have already undertaken considerable work along Waimea Road over the last couple of years, and now we need to continue that work down Rutherford Street. Upgrading the stormwater network in this area will reduce the likelihood of flooding to downstream properties from extreme weather events.

The next stage of this work is the Rutherford Street (Little Go Stream) stormwater upgrade – Stage 2, provisionally scheduled to get underway in July 2022.
