Urenui water pipes replacement

Project overview

We are replacing nearly all of Urenui’s water pipes over the next 18 months. This is an important project to resolve Urenui’s long-standing issue of water pipes bursting and is part of NPDC’s $248m commitment to fix the plumbing in our district.

This project will roll out in three stages:

Area one: Work starts on 24 January 2023 on the western edge of Urenui to replace 665 metres of old pipes between Whakapaki Street, Dowman Street, and Te Rangi Hiroa Place. Area one is expected to take six months to complete, before we move on to area two.

Area two: Area two stretches from State Highway 3 to Ritimona Street, and includes parts of Ngapapa Street and Ngakoti Street.

Area three: Area three takes in a circular block around Ngakoti Street, Totara Street, and Ngapapa Street on the east side of State Highway 3.
