Rising main design underway
The ~$20m project to create a new regional sewage pipeline from Monaco to Bells Island is underway, with the project currently in the resource consent process. Consent approval is expected around July 2010.
In order not to delay the completion of the project it was resolved to continue with the detailed design while the resource consent process is running. The full project, including auxiliary works to the Beach Road, Saxton Road and Airport pump stations as well as the construction of a new pump station at Songer Street, is programmed for completion in May 2011.
