Milford town centre stormwater project

What the project is about

This $8.3 million project involves the construction of a new, larger stormwater pipe network in the Milford Town Centre.

We have completed works for stages 1 and 2A.

Stage 2B

We have:

  • installed a stormwater treatment device that improves the water flowing from the town centre before it enters Wairau Creek
  • installed an outfall structure in Wairau Estuary reserve which will discharge stormwater into Wairau Creek
  • constructed a stormwater network on Fenwick Avenue
  • constructed a stormwater pipe from Fenwick Avenue to Wairau Estuary reserve.

Final stage

The final stage of the project will be completed between May to July 2023 and will involve constructing:

  • the inlet structures on Fenwick Avenue
  • a manhole on Kitchener Road at its intersection with Fenwick Avenue and Kitchener Road
  • a pipe from this manhole into the newly constructed manhole on Fenwick Avenue.
