Work ahead of schedule on new sewer

Work ahead of schedule on new sewer

December 1, 2005

Work is running ahead of schedule on a key North Shore City Council project in Wairau Valley aimed at reducing the number of sewage overflows after it rains.

The council's tunnelling contractors have just completed installing a 280-metre section of a new trunk sewer.

Wastewater network projects manager Dave Woods says as part of Project CARE, the council is installing a much larger pipe to take sewage from Sunnynook to the Wairau pumping station.

The latest section to be completed runs from the Wairau pumping station north along Wairau Rd and under Tristram Ave to an area near the petrol station on the eastern side of Wairau Rd.

North Shore City has built the sewer using micro-tunnelling technology to minimise disruption to the community and the environment.

Early next year contractors will tunnel the final 40-metre stretch that will link the Wairau Rd section to the already completed portions of the sewer, which run from Sunnynook Rd under the motorway, and along Link Drive and Croftfield Lane.

The $5.7m project is one of many improvements happening around the city under Project CARE, North Shore City Council's commitment to improving beach and stream water quality.

Another key project, installing new sewers in Browns Bay, is also nearing completion.

Mr Woods says the large pit and worksite at the intersection of Anzac Rd and Beach Front Lane will go soon, and the area will be reinstated as a car park by Christmas.

Luxon’s repeated use of the term “settled law” has been particularly tone deaf, given that several of the US Supreme Court justices used that very same term during their confirmation hearings...
