Chatsworth Road water pipe renewals

Current status

On behalf of Upper Hutt City Council we are renewing the aging water pipes on Chatsworth Road between the Whitemans Road intersection and 58 Chatsworth Road. This will improve the resilience and reliability of the drinking water network.

Start Date
End Date

If you have any questions about this work, please contact:

Wellington Water, 04 912 4400

Construction is scheduled to take place between 10 June 2024 – March 2025.

Hours of work will be between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Works will start at 61 Chatsworth Road and move down the road in sections. Parts of Chatsworth and Whitemans roads will be reduced to one lane as the worksite moves down the road. 

Traffic management personnel will be on site during working hours to manage vehicle flow past the site.

Parking within the work area may be restricted and we ask you to please not park your vehicle within the coned areas. This will help us to get the work done as quickly as possible.


Due to a history of recurring pipe failures, the aging Chatsworth Rd water main has been deemed unreliable.

To minimise water outages in the area and disruption to customers, we are now renewing the existing water pipe, improving the resilience of the network and access to safe drinking water for the local community.  

During the works, part of Whitemans  and Chatsworth roads will be reduced to one lane and traffic management will be in place.

Parking and property access may be limited during this time and we will ensure residents are kept updated.
