Whaanga Coast construction gets underway again

Whaanga Coast construction gets underway again

Construction work on Whaanga Coast’s new wastewater scheme will get underway again from Monday after a brief break to avoid disrupting residents and visitors in the area during the holiday period.

Work on the 10km pipeline began in November last year near the Raglan Wastewater Treatment Plant, continuing along Wainui Road.

Completion date is scheduled for April 2014.

Wainui Road slip update

Meanwhile temporary repairs to a major slip on Wainui Road remain in place with two lane access allowing traffic to move freely around the bay.
Work to repair the slip permanently is expected to start late February with engineers in the process of finalising the design.
Drivers are reminded that a 30kph speed limit is in place.
