Almost done and dusted.
Water main upgrade complete
The installation of the brand new water pipe from Bagnall Square to Matai Street is complete.
The new pipe is made from plastic with stainless steel fittings and is much more robust than the old concrete one.
All going to plan it should keep doing its job for at least another 80 to 100 years, which will see most of us out!
Loose chip on the road surface
It’s normal to see some loose chip on the road surface following this type of work. This will settle down with traffic usage over the next 4 to 6 weeks.
Thank you to all involved
Thanks for your help and understanding during this project. Once the dust has settled Turua main street will look better than ever.
Best Christmas wishes and safe summer driving to you all
It’s been dusty, but thankfully we’re almost done and dusted
Thanks to nice dry weather over the last few weeks we’ve made pretty quick work of the road upgrade and will be adding the final road surface over the next few days.
The downside of this of course, is that all this sunshine has made things super dusty!
We’re doing our best to manage this by watering the site as much as we can, but we are expecting more dust over the next few days while the final seal is laid.
We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we carry out this upgrade work.
Please bear with us for a few more days
Time for the finishing touches
Once the final road surface is down we’ll add the finishing touches
- Road markings
- Traffic islands and pram crossings
- Footpath widening and tidying
- Top soil and grassing
