Why is the project needed?

We are undertaking upgrades to the water network to cater for current and future development along with population growth. The current water network cannot cater for any further growth in the Waikōwhai/Mt Roskill area. This project will enable 4,000 dwellings that are proposed by Kainga Ora, plus 170 infill dwellings within the Waikōwhai/Mt Roskill area.

Please refer to the overall site works map showing upcoming sections of work, work in progress and completed sections.
