New infrastructure ahead of housing development

Tararua District Council [TDC] is embarking on work to install new infrastructure in Pahiatua for a housing development that’s scheduled to begin construction in 2025.

The installation of necessary water, wastewater, and stormwater services will allow for the building of the homes to start, a TDC spokesperson said.

“This vital work will be undertaken from February 12 through to July 12, 2024, with work taking place between 7am to 6pm.

“The work will take place along Princess St, and between Main St [State Highway 2] and Lawson St, including the intersections at Kauri Place, Huxley St, Tyndall St and Sedcole St.”

While the installation of infrastructure isn’t happening all at once, TDC is advising residents to be ready for roadworks.

“The works will be completed in stages, so residents are asked to be on the lookout for changes in traffic management and follow the signs,” the spokesperson said.

“Access to properties and pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the work period.”

While the roadworks may cause delays, the spokesperson said TDC will be ensuring other infrastructure will not be compromised.

“There will be no disruption to electricity, water, gas, or telephone services but there may be traffic delays at times, increased noise, dust, and vibration during work hours.”

Tū Mai Rā Investments “will oversee the building and occupancy of the new homes with a focus on protecting the notable trees and sustainable designs, including solar and stormwater management”.

The TDC spokesperson also wanted to issue a safety reminder.

“Safety is a big priority, so please keep children and pets away from worksites. On-site contractors will help people get around the site.”
