From July 2022, Central Hawke’s Bay District Council will be upgrading the water main that runs along Pōrangahau Road between Lake View Road and Gaisford Terrace.
We identified Pōrangahau Road's Water Supply as a critical asset for our community and so have upgraded the water main to address known challenges related to the network's reliability and resilience, as well as improve its performance for our community.
The upgrade also aims to future proof this key infrastructure and ensure it can support the rapid population growth we are seeing in Waipukurau.
As the upgrade nears completion, 95% of project works have finished and the final piece of the puzzle is hoped to be completed in the next few months, by late 2023. All new water mains and service laterals have been installed, and the temporary surface has been applied within the roading corridor until the contractor can return to complete final rehabilitation works in more settled weather.
The Project Team is working with the 3 Waters Team to programme the final component of this infrastructure upgrade, which will allow for installation of the last detail at the Gaisford Terrace intersection.
The Fulton Hogan team have delivered this project as contractors to council.
