Omokoroa Road upgrade from State Highway 2 to the railwayUpdate: 12 December 2017
The upgrade of Omokoroa Road has been slower than programmed due to many weather delays over winter. With conditions improving, earthworks will start again.
The project includes:
Two kilometres of widened road carriageway
Safety improvements to the Prole Road intersection
Two new intersections for three larger scale housing developments
A new cycleway
Undergrounding overhead power lines in conjunction with the installation of fibre optic telecommunications cable
Relocation of remaining overhead power lines and underground telecommunications cables
Relocation of a section of sewer transfer line (completed)
Installation of a new bulk watermain to service Omokoroa peninsula
New rider-mains running off the bulk main to service all properties along the length of the project
The old decommissioned asbestos cement watermain will be excavated and removed to a certified receiving site. This will be done in a contained and safe manner - so don't fret if you see asbestos removal specialists wearing protective gear!
A new park-and-ride facility is planned near the Prole Road intersection
The project will carry on through this summer construction season and includes two new intersections to service the adjoining land development.
Earthworks will continue along the project length between September 2017 and April 2018 followed by the new carriageway and surfacing.
Surplus material from the roading earthworks has been put into the Special Housing Area for future road embankment and the construction of a stormwater pond.
Coordination with everyone involved in the roading upgrade has been an essential part of the project’s progress. Council acknowledges the cooperation of the many organisations and authorities associated with the project.
We thank you for your patience during this time.
