Major roadworks will begin in December 2016 in south and central Rangiora as part of a ten-year project to improve the wastewater network.
A number of large wastewater pipes will be installed in central and south Rangiora in the next ten years. Council will aim to schedule this work to minimise disruption as much as possible.
The first stages of works within the next three years are outlined in some detail below. These will continue for the next 10 years and beyond. The programme has a total value of around $17 million for the next ten years (excluding works already completed).
Stage 1 construction begins from December 2016.
The roadworks associated with the project may disrupt a number of activities, including commuter traffic and affect vehicle access to businesses, schools and pre-schools. Whenever possible, the critical part of the construction will be undertaken during school holidays to minimise effects on schools.
The works will provide a number of benefits for Rangiora. They will:
Stage 1 begins the upgrade at the Rangiora Wastewater Treatment Plant, traversing parts of Dunlops and Railway Roads as far as Torlesse Street. To provide greater capacity for flow, a large concrete pipe will be installed with an internal diameter of 825 mm.
The Council will discuss the potential impact of the works with affected property owners and road user groups throughout 2016. In particular, discussions will include:
Stage 2 will extend the upgrade from Railway Road at Torlesse Street upstream to and along South Belt, almost as far as Rowse Street.
The impact on the Rangiora New Life School, Southbrook School and the Kindercare Learning Centre will be carefully managed. Access arrangements for homes on Pearson Lane will be discussed with residents.
The community will be updated closer to the construction date. Construction will begin from mid-2017.
Stage 3 will extend the pipeline along a section of King Street between South Belt and Charles Street.

Rangiora Central Sewer Capacity Upgrade Fortnightly Update02 Mar 2018
Dormers Contracting have been laying a new sewer main along Southbrook
Road, and will soon cross the road, from Denchs Road into Pearson Lane.
January the contractor installed around 100m of concrete pipe on Denchs Road
between Rangiora New Life School and Marshall Street. The road in this area was
particularly narrow, so this work was carried out over the school holidays with
the entire road closed. As part of the work,
Dormers rebuilt the entire width of the road, and then surfaced it with a new chipseal.
February an additional 105m of concrete pipe has been installed, as well as two
new manholes. A large amount of Denchs Road between Marshall Street and
Southbrook Road has been reinstated with new asphalt surfacing.
were committed to completing the work on Denchs Road as quickly as possible,
which included crews working long shifts (sometimes in the order of 12-13 hour
days), and racing against ex Tropical cyclone Gita to surface the road.
works were planned during the week of 26 February to install the new pipe across
Southbrook Road. This work has been postponed while the contractor deals with
some of the constraints involved in crossing such a busy road.
Dormers are planning on crossing Southbrook
Road within the next two weeks. The work
is planned overnight for 8 and 9 March, with 12 and 13March scheduled
as back up days in case of delays (i.e. postponed due to weather).
the pipe has been installed across Southbrook Road, contractors will install
another manhole, and will continue laying pipe along Pearson Lane.
will keep residents updated when the pipe will be being installed past their
properties, and will work with residents to reduce impacts as much as possible.
