Park Road Rising Main, Hastings

Drainways was the main contractor to the Hastings District Council to provide a new sewer rising (pumped) main from Park Rd, down Victoria St and a final connection point at Willowpark Rd.

This was Drainways first major job as lead contractor to Hastings District Council.

One of the initial challenges was determining the potential for underground service clashes. This required potholing two metres deep to find service locations and then plotting these with GPS to provide council engineers with coordinates for their modelling to ensure the rising main didn’t clash with these existing services.

The project also included a 30-metre section of directional drilling that required two drill shots.

Our first Council project as lead contractor was a great success. Although it was scheduled to be finished in December 2020, the Drainways team completed the job eight weeks early, well within budget.  Happy engineers, happy Council, happy residents. It doesn’t get better than that.
