Kaiapoi East Infrastructure

Another Regeneration Project

Water Mains Works

A new water trunk main (underground pipe) has been installed in the roads along the northern edge of the Kaiapoi East regeneration area from Williams Street to Beach Road, with a side branch in Sewell Street. This water main replaces abandoned mains and provide a more reliable and resilient water supply. It will also improve the fire-fighting capacity for the area. On GRADE Drainage and Excavation Ltd will be undertaking this work

Timing

All water supply works should be complete by the end of November 2017.

Works

Works underway for the new water mains in Gray Crescent – May 2017

Sewer Mains Works

New and replacement sewer mains (underground pipes) will be installed to service properties north of the Kaiapoi East regeneration area. A new wastewater pump station is being built on Feldwick Drive near Gray Crescent. These works will greatly improve the reliability of the wastewater system, and it will no longer rely on damaged sewer pipes that pass through the regeneration area.

Timing

These works are expected to be complete by February 2018.
