Waipawa Water Main Renewal

Lower Abbotsford Road and Matthew Street

Recently, we’ve been doing a lot of work to renew the water main that runs from the borefield on Tikokino Road to our reservoirs on Abbotsford Road. So far, we’ve completed stages 1,2,3 and 5 of the renewal and stages 1 and 2 of the firefighting capacity upgrades. 

From 1 May 2023, we will be starting the two remaining stages of these projects – Stage 4 (Abbotsford Road) and Firefighting Stage 3 (Matthew Street). 

These projects will deal with challenges related to the Waipawa and Ōtane water supply network, specifically upgrading old, critical assets and servicing planned future growth in the area.  

The Central Hawkes Bay Higgins team will be delivering these projects as contractors to council.  

We are expecting Higgins to begin stage 4 works on 1 May 2023. Stage 3 works will follow on from stage 4.  


Waipawa Trunk Water Main Upgrade - Stage 4  

Stage 4 will commence on 1 May2023 and is due for completion in September 2023. This will connect into completed stages 3 and 5We will be installing approx. 720m of 280mm pipe along the lower section of Abbotsford Road(from the Matthew Street intersection down to Tikokino Road via the bank) 

Waipawa Firefighting Water Capacity Upgrade Stage 3 

Matthew Street will follow on from stage 4. This will connect into completed stage 2 at the top of Matthew Street and continue through to Rose Street. We will be replacing and upsizing the current main with approx. 230m of 250mm pipe. This project supports growth and is a vital link in our Waipawa firefighting supply.
