Pipe fixed under Peel Street Bridge

Pipe fixed under Peel Street Bridge

Contractors are fixing the wastewater pipe under the Peel Street Bridge.

We were notified of a small leak in the pipe and immediately responded. Water was found to be seeping from where the bridge connects to the manhole.

The small flow was immediately diverted away through the Wainui Road pump station and the water flow ceased.

Contractors are patching the repair and it will be fixed by end of today.

The patch will be made a permanent fix later this year when programmed works are carried out on this section of the pipe.
