Te Mata Road Water Main Replacement, Havelock North
The replacement of an older 100mm Asbestos pipeline in Te Mata Rd to upgrade to a 150mm PVC pipe.
This was completed for City Care (as they were the HDC maintenance contractor at the time) and was too big for them to complete.
The old asbestos main was constantly bursting and needed replacing right away. Not only was it a danger to the hundreds of school children who walked over it each day, it was also an ongoing headache for the residents it serviced, who could be without water for long periods until it was repaired.
