Albany to Pinehill reservoirs watermain construction

There is a new water pump station and watermain planned to connect Albany and Pinehill reservoirs to improve the water network across the North Shore.
Start-finish: December 2017- November 2018
Location: Albany Reservoir to Pinehill (Spencer Road, East Coast Road) 
Status: Construction

What's happening?

We are currently constructing a new watermain and pump station connecting the Albany and Pinehill reservoirs. This project will increase network capacity to meet future population growth, and improve the resilience of the water supply to the North Shore from the Pinehill Reservoir. 

The new watermain will run from the Albany Reservoir where a new water pump station is being constructed. A section of the watermain will be suspended under the deck of a new walking and cycling bridge that is being built over the motorway as a joint project with the NZ Transport Agency, connecting to Spencer Road. The watermain will then run along Spencer Road and East Coast Road to the Pinehill Reservoir next to the intersection of Browns Bay Road.

Work on the installation of the new pipeline is now nearing completion, with the last of the pipeline being installed in October. We will then do pipeline testing. A new pump station will also be built at Albany Reservoir to utilise water being pumped to Pinehill Reservoir through the new watermain. The construction of this is now underway and is due to be completed in early 2019.
