Reports for Recommendation




Great North Road Stormwater Renewal

Record No: R/18/4/9318


Senior Projects Engineer, Water and Waste Services, Matt Keil and Financial Accountant Susan McNamara were in attendance for this item.


Mr Keil advised the purpose of the report is to recommend the Winton Community Board approve the budgeted project increase of $876,500.00 to occur consecutively within 2018-2019 financial year and 2019-2020 financial year for the Contract 18/14 Great North Road stormwater renewal project, to incorporate additional stormwater pipeline along De Joux Road which requires replacement due to capacity and performance issues.


Mr Keil explained the stormwater main on De Joux Road was not initially highlighted as requiring replacement, however following investigation it was revealed the existing stormwater reticulation around this catchment was inadequately sized to cater for 10% Annual Exceedance Probability.


Mr Keil advised the completed investigation shows that an additional $876,500.00 is needed to replace the stormwater pipes in order to alleviate the flooding that is occurring.  Mr Keil added it is proposed that this work would be completed over two financial years 2018/2018 and 2019/2020.


Mrs McNamara advised in regards to costs and funding of this project, contract 18/14 is programmed to occur within year one of the 2018/2028 long term plan and is to be funded via loan within a local Winton stormwater loan over a 30 year term.


Mrs McNamara explained currently a budget of $1million is available within 2018/2019.  Mrs McNamara added it will be a requirement to obtain an additional budget of $876,500.00 to finish Contract 18/14 within 2019/2020.


Following discussion the Board agreed to option one being a full pipeline replacement of Great North Road, between Eglinton Street and De Joux Road and to 29 De Joux Road to be completed over a two year period.


Following further discussion Members agreed that the Board contribute $500,000 from reserves toward this stormwater project.


The Board suggested staff arrange a Flyer for distribution to the Winton Community Board community highlighting the stormwater water work to be undertaken along Great North Road and De Joux Road, the costings involved and the Board’s contribution of $500,000 to assist toward the project and the effect of the rates on the community.


It was further suggested an invitation be extended to the public to attend a café style meeting with relevant staff and community board members in attendance to publically discuss these issues.
