Lawsons Creek wastewater pipe construction

We are constructing a new wastewater pipe in Lawsons Creek.

Start finish: February 2019 – January 2020 (Phase 2)
Location: Lawsons Creek, near Moire Rd, Massey
Status: Construction

What’s happening?

The first phase of the pipeline is now complete (please refer to the map below).

We are now entering phase 2 of construction works, laying approximately 850m of 430mm diameter pipe.
Work will start in February 2019 and is due to finish in January 2020. The completed pipeline will create additional capacity to cater for growth in West Harbour and help reduce wastewater overflows into the environment.

The pipeline will be created by a tunnel boring machine and extend past the Moire Park playing fields and connect into the existing network at Allington Road.

How will this work affect you?

  • Some areas will be fenced off for public safety in areas where construction will take place
  • There will be truck movements both inside the park and on Allington Road. Please follow all signs and stay safe in areas marked for truck movements
  • Some park routes (entrances and walkways) will be closed when installing the pipeline
  • Alternative route options will be signposted for pedestrians during all closures.
