Koromiko Street - St Martins - Wastewater

Works Begin 10 Sep 2012 Works End 21 Nov 2012
Works Status Pending Completion
Due to the damage sustained in the earthquakes, we will be replacing the wastewater main in Koromiko Street commencing Monday 10 September 2012 until November 2012. There will be progressive road closures starting at Wilsons Road through to St Martins Road. Vehicle access to properties within the immediate area of the work site will be affected.

This notice follows a previous notice of 22 August and updates the works and traffic management for Koromiko Street (Wilsons Road to St Martins Road). [1]

  • Due to the location of underground pipes this work will involve digging trenches in the middle of Koromiko Street and to each property boundary. Open trenching will require the placement of trench shields and fencing to ensure our workers remain safe and allow us to make the required repairs.
  • The ground water level is high on sections of Koromiko Street.  In these areas it will be necessary to use a technique called “dewatering” before the wastewater pipe can be laid.  This work will require the use of dewatering pumps.
  • On sections of the pipe laying, bypass pumping may be needed.  Any temporary hoses or overground pipes will remain within the work area.

Traffic Management Update:

  • This work will require a progressive road closure along Koromiko Street starting at Wilsons Road and continuing through to St Martins Road.  Vehicle access to properties within the immediate area of the work site will be affected. The restriction will move with the work site as we progress along the street.
  • As works progress across Ngaio Street, access for Ngaio Street residents across Koromiko Street will be maintained.  There will be traffic management in place, please follow the on-site signage.
  • For those periods when no vehicle access to your property is available, please park outside the immediate area of the worksite.  Pedestrian and bicycle access will be maintained at all times.
  • Should you have large or multiple items (such as groceries) which need carrying while our work crews are on-site, please approach staff who will be happy to assist you to carry these items.  If you wish to speak to someone on-site, please go to the person furthest away from moving machinery who is outside of the fenced off area.
  • For the safety of our workers and all road users, please follow the on-site traffic management including the 30km/h speed limit.
  • On street parking will be affected during the work period.  Signage will indicate where parking will not be available.
  • Access to properties for emergency vehicles and deliveries will be maintained at all times.
  • Footpaths within the work area should remain open. Please follow on-site signage.
  • Please contact us on 0800 632 889 if you have specific access requirements that we need to consider, e.g. the arrival of Nurse Maude, Meals on Wheels.

How our work could impact you:

  • Your rubbish and recycling will remain unchanged.  In order for your rubbish and recycling to be collected, we ask residents to place their bins outside the work area.  Please ensure your bins are clearly marked with your
