Tarewa Bridge Rebuild

We're building a new, stronger bridge across Tukituki River.

A vital connection on the Tukituki Trails will be restored after Central Hawke’s Bay District Council approved the design and build of a new bridge across Tukituki River. 

The Tarewa Bridge was destroyed by a one-in-50-year flood in March, and Council has since led plans with Hawke’s Bay Regional Council, Rotary River Pathways Trust, and Mana whenua to rebuild the community asset.

Marking another chapter in Council’s #bigwastewaterstory, the bridge will support two wastewater pipes across the awa. 

Sustainable, environmentally focused wastewater management is set out in Council’s Long Term Plan 2021-31 and includes removing all wastewater discharges from the district's waterways by 2035.   

The pipes will provide an essential link at the river downstream from Waipukurau and will be part of the centralised wastewater treatment for Waipukurau, Waipawa and Otāne.

Council is in the process of finalising a design for the structure, with a review due to commence at the end of February 2023.

Consent applications were lodged in December 2022 and Council is now in the progress of responding with further information.

The bridge will be built and ready to use by mid-2023.

The new Tarewa Bridge will be jointly funded by Hawke’s Bay Regional Council and Central Hawke’s Bay District Council’s Long-Term Plan budget.
