We’re installing a new bulk watermain in eastern Porirua, which will provide resilience and cater for growth.

We are progressing well and are about to commence work on installing a chamber and more pipework at the intersection of Conclusion St and Warspite Ave, Waitangirua. This work will take about one month from 21 October – 21 November, hours of work will generally be 7am-10pm.
From 21 October, a one-way system will be in place with a detour route along Conclusion Street and Desert Gold Street.

Warspite Ave will be reduced to a single lane during the work, through the peaks and out of hours. This will result in significant journey time increase. Please find an alternative route wherever possible.
