Great North Road Water Supply and Wastewater Upgrade

FroDecember 2022, Central Hawke’s Bay District Council will be upgrading the water main on Great North Road between Tamumu Road and Abbotsford Road. We will also be extending the existing wastewater network that runs along Great North Road between Tamumu Road and Abbotsford Road. These are known as Stage 1 and 2. 

These are critical assets for our community, and we are undertaking this work to support growth and development in the area as well as improve performance of key assets for our community.  

The Central Hawke’s Bay Higgins team will be delivering this project as contractors to council. 

The team are expecting to establish the site in November 2022 to undertake Stages 1 and 2. 

Completion of the upgrade is expected by July 2023. 

Our work

Water Supply Upgrade – Stage 1 (Light Blue line) 

The water supply upgrade is taking place along Great North Road between Tamumu Rd and Abbotsford Rd. We will be replacingapprox. 215m of aged and undersized pipe. This is to cater for growth in the area and improve resiliency of the drinking water network servicing the northern area of Waipawa 

Wastewater Upgrade – Stage 2 (Red line) 

The wastewater extension will connect to existing infrastructure on Tamumu Road at the intersection of Collins Street. It extends along the western side of Great North Road to Abbotsford Road. We will be extending the network by approx.290m to allow for growth in the area.

Stages 3 and 4 

As outlined on the map below, a second stage of works (SP3 +SP4) has also been proposed for the future.SP3 includes upgrading the drinking water along Great North Road from Tamumu to Collins Street, and SP4 includes a northern wastewater extension pipeline on Great North Road.
