Water main

Masterton District Council [MDC] has contracted Citycare to replace the water main on Hope St. Work will commence on March 3 and continue Sunday to Thursday from 6pm to 7am until March 22. The area of work comprises all of Hope St, from Chapel St to Villa St. Hope St will be closed to all traffic except residents from during the work hours. Chapel St will have stop/go traffic on Thursday, March 7, from 7pm to 6am. Citycare will dig a trench parallel to the kerb and channel on the west side of Hope St. It will require excavation and compaction of material. There will be some infrequent noise and vibration. MDC advises there will be a temporary water supply cut-off during the reconnection of the existing water supply to the new water main, but affected properties will get advance notice.

power outages

Powerco is carrying out replacement work over the next two weeks that might impact power connections in several areas. On Wednesday, February 28, a conductor will be replaced on Western Lake Rd between 9.15am and 3.15pm that may affect 58 properties. On Tuesday March 5, poles and cross arms will be replaced in the same area between 9.15am and 3.15pm. On Wednesday, March 6, a new transformer is being installed on Seaview Rd between 9.45am and 3.45pm, which may affect 259 properties. And on Thursday, March 7, poles and crossarms will be replaced at Western Lake Rd between 9.15am and 3.15pm, which could affect 58 properties.

Signs update

South Wairarapa District Council [SWDC] has an update on the ‘Welcome to Featherston’ signs at the southern and northern entrances to Featherston on State Highway 2 [SH2]. In 2020, the signs at each entrance were taken down after safety concerns around their proximity to SH2. SWDC has been liaising with NZTA on behalf of the Featherston Beautification Group to resolve issues and get the signs reinstated. Resource consent proposes a new location to accommodate the southern sign being further back from SH2, with the Otauira Reserve fence moved to accommodate it. The resource consent has been submitted to NZTA with the decision returned mid-March. Alternative options are being considered.
