Taniwha Reserve stormwater upgrade
We are redeveloping Taniwha Reserve to enable state housing development and support the growth of Tāmaki.
You should know
Taniwha Reserve is temporarily closed from March 2021 until approximately November 2021.
The closure is while we make improvements to the stormwater channel and enhance the public space.
What the project is about
This work will:
- allow our stormwater network to more efficiently cope with heavy rainfall as more housing is being developed in the area
- improve the water quality of Ōmaru Creek
- create an urban wetland to connect the community to the natural environment
- improve public safety with improved lighting and by opening up street frontages
- create new pedestrian and cycling routes connecting the reserve to local neighbourhoods.
Construction of the stormwater channel and reserve upgrades begin in March 2021 and will take approximately six months to complete.
Taniwha Reserve will be closed to the public for the duration of the project. Walkways through the reserve will not be available. Pedestrians and cyclists will need to use different routes along Taniwha Street and Line Road.
Working hours will be 7.30am-6pm, Monday to Saturday.
Some work outside these hours may be required, but we will notify residents if they are likely to be affected.
We will endeavour to keep noise and vibration levels within acceptable limits.
Who is behind the project
The Taniwha Reserve upgrade is part of the wider regeneration of Tāmaki and associated state housing areas.
This work is being led by Kāinga Ora (formerly known as HLC, the Housing New Zealand subsidiary) and the Tāmaki Regeneration Company.
