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.

Stage 2A

We have installed a stormwater pipe at the intersection of Shakespeare Road and Kitchener Road.

Stage 2B

We will install a new stormwater pipe network on Fenwick Avenue and across Kitchener Road, which will be an outfall into Wairau Creek.

We will also install a stormwater treatment device in the reserve at the corner of Omana Road and Kitchener Road. This device will improve the water quality of Wairau Creek.

Project timeframe

The stormwater network upgrade started in June 2021. Stage 2A is complete, but later than planned due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Stage 2B will begin in 2022, so there is less disruption in Milford over the summer.

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 Avenue
  • Kitchener Road
  • Otakau Road
  • Shakespeare Road
  • Omana 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.
