Porangahau Water Supply Upgrade

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 know this is a critical asset for our community and we are upgrading this water main to address known challenges related to the network reliability and resilience and improve performance for our community.

This work will also future proof this asset, ensuring it can support the rapid population growth we are seeing in Waipukurau.

The Fulton Hogan team will be delivering this project as contractors to council.

Lake View Road to Peterson Place

The work taking place from Lake view Road to Peterson Place will include upgrading the existing water mains to a new pipe and replacing the water service connection to your property and boundary toby boxes (approximately 22 service connections are planned to be replaced). New fire hydrants and isolation valves will also be installed on the new water main.

As we continue to battle this terrible weather, we are pleased to let you know that we are still making good progress on this project. Over the last month the following has been completed:

• Completed directional drilling and pipe installation for stage one. (Lake View Road to Peterson Place). You may have seen the team along with various plant pulling the pipe through the ground.

• Backfilled most of the open trenches that were in place for directional drilling.

• 10 connections, 63 ridermains and two of three hydrants have been installed throughout stage 1.

• Traffic management remains in place, and you will notice that this will continually change as needed. This to open up the road where possible whilst still protect the contractors working on site as well anyone using the road (pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles).

• Preconstruction pipe welding and site exploration is underway for Stage two (Peterson Place to Gaisford Tce).

Fulton Hogan has set up on site and have begun investigations of the existing pipelines. Traffic management has been set up which will help protect their workers from vehicles moving throughout the road. 

This upgrade will see the old cast iron and asbestos cement main replaced with a bigger pipeline to support growth in the area.
