Queen Street Sewer and Stormwater Renewals, 2016
This contract involved the construction of new 750mm and 825mm stormwater mains in Queen Street, Petone and a new 1200mm stormwater main in The Esplanade up to depths of 3.5m. The contract also involved the construction of a new 150mm sewer main and new sewer laterals in Queen Street.
Due to the depth and proximity of the sea an extensive dewatering system needed to be set up to keep the hole dry. Also as we were laying on the existing alignments both the sewer and stormwater needed bypassing.
Extensive traffic control was required particularly on The Esplanade as it is a busy arterial route into Wellington carrying approximately 40,000 vehicles every day.
