Tukituki River Crossing

As with the Waipawa River, the decision on how to cross the Tukutuki river is also critical. In order to understand this more fully the project team has obtained consent to carry out geotechnical drilling work in the river corridors. This work is underway and the report is expected in April 2023.

Alongside this, ongoing engagement with mana whenua is critical to further develop the understanding of how Te Mana o Te Wai principles can be integrated into this decision. The National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2020 introduced the concept of Te Mana o te Wai, which developed a hierarchy of priority obligations. Ongoing development and priority of these obligations will require a continued partnership approach between Council and mana whenua throughout the project.
