Lower Abbotsford Road and Matthew Street
The programmed work to renew the water main that runs from the borefield on Tikokino Road to our reservoirs on Abbotsford Road is now 95% completed. The water mains from Tikokino Road past the Waipawa transfer station towards Waipawa, and up into Abbotsford Road along to the Matthew Street intersection, have been installed and contractors are working towards completing patches of chip sealing in the roading network.
Pressure testing of this new main has been completed and the site has been closed until we can return for the final stage of this work, which will include disinfection of the water main and connecting to other stages of work feeding to the reservoir.
We are expecting Council's contractor Higgins to have completed the project by December 2023.
This vital water renewal project addresses the challenges posed by the aged infrastructure on the Waipawa and Otāne water supply network, specifically upgrading old, critical assets and servicing planned future growth in the area.
