Tree removals at Hikanui Pā, Tainui Reserve, Havelock North

Communications from Hastings District Council

In November 2023, Council resolved to remove the stand of exotic trees (pines, macrocarpas,and gums) from the registered archaeological site - Hikanui Pā, following severe damage to the site during Cyclone Gabrielle. The remaining stand is now more exposed than ever to wind throw and therefore … View moreIn November 2023, Council resolved to remove the stand of exotic trees (pines, macrocarpas,and gums) from the registered archaeological site - Hikanui Pā, following severe damage to the site during Cyclone Gabrielle. The remaining stand is now more exposed than ever to wind throw and therefore likely to cause further damage to the pā site. The removal of the remaining stand will allow for stabilisation matting to be installed and the planting of indigenous revegetation.

The tree removals will start during the week of 4 March 2024 and take up to six weeks to complete (weather dependent). The project will involve the removal of trees on and around the archaeological site using heavy machinery and, for part of the time, a helicopter.

Due to the danger posed by the machinery operating within the reserve and trucks needing to access it, the whole of Tainui Reserve will be closed to the public for the duration of the work. The only exception to this will be the grass area between Keith Sands Grove and Keirunga Road which will remain open, except during helicopter operations as the helicopter will land in this area for refueling. Advanced notice will be provided to nearby residents prior to helicopter activity.

The works are being undertaken under an archaeological authority from Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga and will be supervised by Archaeology Hawke’s Bay. Treescape has been contracted to undertake the tree removals.

Friday 2 February 2024 between the hours of 12am - 3am

Due to the recent wet weather (lessening the normal summer demand) we can carry out water leak detection in the system.

These works involve rolling shutdowns across sections of the network. It is anticipated that shutdowns will last for a maximum of 30 minutes and occur between the hours of midnight and 3am. Note that properties may be affected by multiple shutdowns during this period.

You can help: If you are aware of any leaks within the Haumoana and Te Awanga water supply we ask you to please report these to HDC on (06) 871 5000.

There is a chance the shutdowns create some aeration or discolouration of the water. If this occurs please flush your taps for approx. 5 minutes. If this does not resolve the problem, contact us on (06) 871 5000.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Roundabout construction at the intersection of Frederick Street and Caroline Road

Communications from Hastings District Council

Starting next week (w/c 15 January) for 3 weeks, contractors will begin construction of a prefabricated roundabout at the intersection of Frederick Street and Caroline Road.

The works will be undertaken between 7am and 5pm each day with traffic management in place. During construction, there will be no access to Caroline Road from Frederick Street (and vice versa).

Traffic management will include temporary road closures and speed restrictions (see map below). Spotters will be on-site to assist pedestrians and residents in accessing their properties and navigating through the work area.

We are opting to install a prefabricated system due to its lower cost and short installation time (approximately 5% of the cost and 3% of the time of a concrete alternative).

Due to high volumes of traffic on Frederick Street, this intersection has become very busy and hazardous for turning vehicles. The installation of a roundabout will help to reduce speeds at the intersection and improve safety whilst providing convenient turning opportunities.

Due to the deteriorating road conditions (including flushing, rutting and potholes), Hastings District Council (HDC) is proposing to do pavement renewal work on the following sections of road (refer locality map below):
- Lawn Road (between no 249 and Mill Rd/Lawn Rd roundabout)
- Mill Road (between no 78 and Mill Rd/Lawn Rd roundabout)
- Farndon Road (between no 405 and road over rail bridge), including Kahupātiki Marae entrance widening and improvements

The work will involve removing excess layers of chipseal, topping up road gravel, shaping, stabilising, compacting and resealing. All existing driveways will be reinstated on a like-for-like basis and made good to tie in with the new road levels.

Some minor drainage improvements on the verge will also be completed by cutting back roadside vegetation to allow water to drain off the road where required. HDC do not anticipate significant change in final road levels.

If you are a property owner in any of these areas, we welcome your feedback regarding other potential improvements that could be made along these sections of road during the project. To have your say, head to: napier.wufoo.com... or email roadingupdates@hdc.govt.nz

Please submit all feedback by Friday 22 December.
