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.

A sinkhole was discovered on the Clark Street culvert in May 2017. The sinkhole has been filled and patched. See the OurAuckland article for more information.

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.
