Kaiapoi East Infrastructure

Another Regeneration Project

Kaiapoi East Water

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 provides a more reliable and resilient water supply. It also improves the fire-fighting capacity for the area. OnGrade Drainage and Excavation Ltd will be undertaking this work

Timing

All water supply works should be complete by the end of January 2018.

January 2018 Update

The new water pipes through the residential area of Kaiapoi East have now been installed and are in operation. A new water pipe is currently being installed along Cass Street and Feldwick Drive.

Kaiapoi East Sewerage

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 has been 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 the end of February 2018.

January 2018 Update

The new pump station in Feldwick Drive is now in operation. The old pump station will be demolished by the end of January 2018.
Sewer pipes are still to be completed in Blackwell Crescent and through some private properties in Gray Crescent. The landowners will know if a sewer is to be upgraded through their property.
