Project updates for the Tahunanui stormwater upgrade


To keep our Smart Little City running smoothly, we need to upgrade and improve some of our infrastructure network. We are currently looking at the Tahunanui Stormwater catchment area, and need to upgrade selected stormwater pipes along Rocks Road.

When the upgrade is complete, the pipes in the Tahunanui Catchment will be more resilient to large rainfall events.

This project will be done in stages as we want to make sure we reduce the impact on residents and traffic.

A small amount of the work will occur before Christmas 2020 and the balance of the work will start again in April 2021.

In the second half of the year there will also be a project to upgrade the watermain that runs through the Rocks Road/Bisley Road roundabout.

Once this work is complete, then that will allow Waka Kotahi to carry out their reseal of the road (due towards the end of the year).
