Rangiora Wastewater Pipe Upgrades

Major roadworks are underway in central Rangiora as part of a ten-year project to improve the wastewater network.

A number of large wastewater pipes are being installed in central and south Rangiora. This is a multi-year project and the work is being scheduled to minimise disruption as much as possible.

The first stages of works within the next three years are outlined in some detail below. The programme has a total value of around $17 million.

The roadworks associated with the project may disrupt traffic and detours will be required from time to time during the pipe installation. Whenever possible, the critical part of the work will be undertaken during school holidays to minimise effects on schools.

Why upgrade the system?

The works will provide a number of benefits for Rangiora. They will:

  • Replace deteriorating older pipes with larger pipes
  • Prevent excess water entering or escaping from the system during wet weather
  • Reduce the frequency and size of sewage overflows, meaning less contaminated water will overflow onto roads and private property during storms
  • Increase capacity, fully providing for wastewater flows from existing properties and allowing for future new connections and ongoing growth in the West Rangiora Development.

Stage one of work was completed during December 2016 through to June 2017 and began at the Rangiora Wastewater Treatment Plant. It traversed parts of Dunlops and Railway Roads as far as Torlesse Street. It then continued across Southbrook Road, along Pearson Lane, Coronation Street and King Street heading north to Johns Road.
