What the project is about
We are installing a new stormwater pipe for the development of the Clinker Place Special Housing Area in New Lynn.
It will also facilitate our Community Facilities department to construct a large public park as part of the new residential development.
The 530m pipeline will run from the Clinker Place development site, underneath Ambrico Place to a new outfall in Manawa Wetland Reserve.
This project provides stormwater infrastructure for the area and improves the current stormwater system.
We have applied for resource consent and if granted, construction is expected to begin in Winter 2021 and will take approximately 18 months.
Impact of works
We will use trenchless construction techniques for the majority of the pipe installation to limit disruption.
Three temporary shafts will be installed to allow the tunnel boring machine access to the pipeline route.
These shafts will be located adjacent to Manawa Wetland Reserve (Melview Place), Ambrico Place and within the Clinker Place development site.
During work hours, there will be some construction noise and possibly dust. Noise, dust and vibration will be closely monitored to ensure they are kept within required limits.
