Milford town centre stormwater project

What the project is about

This $8.3 million project involves constructing a new, larger stormwater pipe and manholes to reduce flooding in Milford town centre.

The project includes the installation of new stormwater pipes at the intersection of Shakespeare and East Coast Roads, and a new stormwater pipe being tunnelled under the intersection of Kitchener and Shakespeare Roads.

A water quality treatment device will also be installed to improve water quality into the Wairau Creek.

Project timeframe

The stormwater network upgrade commenced in June 2021. The project is due to be completed by Autumn 2022.

How the project will affect you

Traffic management will be in place during the project.

This will affect vehicles entering the intersection of:

  • East Coast Road
  • Fenwick Ave
  • Kitchener Road
  • Otakau Road
  • Shakespeare Road.

Pedestrian access will not be affected, although some redirection may be in place to keep people safe.

We thank you for your patience during these works.
