New Lynn flood recovery
We are working to improve the stormwater network around New Lynn.
Heavy rainfalls in March and April 2017 exceeded the capacity of the network, which led to flooding in several places.
The main flooding occurred at the intersection of Great North Road and Clark Street.
Works are underway to:
- restore hydraulic capacity to a damaged culvert pipe
- restore access for traffic and pedestrians.
At the same time, and together with Auckland Transport, we are looking at ways to build a more resilient stormwater system in New Lynn.
