A major new water main between Hastings and Havelock North is being installed as a key part of an overall drinking water infrastructure upgrade plan.
The $10 million project will see the pipe laid over 4.8 kilometres, from Sylvan Road in Hastings to Napier Rd in Havelock North, via St Aubyn St, Windsor Ave, Howard St, St George’s Rd and Crosses Rd.
The pipe is a critical part of Hastings District Council’s Drinking Water Strategy, designed to improve reliance, capacity and flexibility into the water supply network.
At the Havelock North end a booster pump will need to be installed, with the placement of that pump house still to be decided in consultation with residents, as at March 5.
Once the pipe is operational, the last of the three Brookvale bores in Havelock North will be closed down.
The work includes two further projects, because of their proximity to the water pipe: an upgrade of the wastewater system in the St Aubyn St area, to increase capacity, and a shared cycle/walkway along St George’s Rd. The latter is a key link in the district’s cycleway plan and will be jointly-funded by Hastings District Council and the NZ Transport Agency.
Contractors, March Construction took over the site on 28 February, 2018, with work beginning at a number of points along the route. The plan is to use five construction teams working across three sections of the route simultaneously. It is expected that the project will be completed before the end of the year.
