Wellington Water and Greater Wellington Regional Council are working to replace the existing Kaitoke pipe bridge with a new, more resilient bridge to ensure the safe supply of drinking water for the Wellington Region.

This pipeline is vital for Wellingtonians as it supplies almost 50% of raw water supply to the Wellington regional bulk water supply network.

Work on this project began March 2022.

In order to carry out this vital piece of work for Wellington, parts of Kaitoke's Swing Bridge Loop track are closed to the public (no foot or road access). Please see the map below and Greater Wellington's website for more information.
