McConnell Dowell was recently contracted to complete additional investigations, advise on constructability issues and help finalise design of the Barber Grove Pump Station to Seaview Wastewater Treatment Plant Pipeline Duplication project.

The various investigation works are currently scheduled to take place between February - May 2021 with workers periodically on site. Notice will be given to residents and businesses directly affected by the works before each investigation begins.

Construction of the project is expected to begin mid-to-late 2021. Further information will be provided once investigations are complete and the design is finalised.

The Barber Grove Pump Station to Seaview Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Trunk Main Duplication project will duplicate the wastewater main to a new 1200m long, 900mm diameter rising main from Barber Grove to the Seaview WWTP. The existing concrete pipeline conveys wastewater from 90 percent of Hutt Valley residents, is over 50 years old and highly vulnerable to earthquakes. To finalise the route, initial site investigations were conducted in September 2019. Due to the outcomes from those investigations, additional areas were identified for further investigation, which are scheduled to take place between November 2020 and March 2021. The design will be finalised thereafter, and depending on results, construction is anticipated to start mid-2021.

Barber Grove to Seaview Wastewater Treatment Plant

We will soon be getting under way with investigation work for the Main Collecting Sewer from Barber Grove to the Seaview Wastewater Treatment Plant, Lower Hutt.

We will be drilling and digging holes, surveying and taking soil and water samples along Barber Grove, Randwick Road and Seaview Road prior to the main construction works currently scheduled to commence in January 2021.

This investigation work will take about four weeks from 26 May to 21 June. Hours of work will generally be:

  • 7pm-5am 26 May to 6 June (Sunday-Thursday)
  • 8am-5pm 9 June – 21 June (Sunday-Friday) with some traffic management outside these hours

Work areas will be fenced off, and it is not expected that traffic flows or access to property will be significantly disrupted. We will be returning to the site for more investigations work in August 2019 and will advise of these works ahead of time again.

On-street parking in the area alongside the worksite may be restricted, and we ask you to please not park your vehicle within the coned areas. This will help us get our work done as quickly as possible.
