Construction starting soon!
Last year we asked for your feedback on three exciting projects to transform the Raglan Wharf and we are pleased to let you know from mid-August, we’ll be starting construction.
Firstly, we’ll be carrying out maintenance repairs on the underside of the wharf followed by the construction of the new pontoon, eastern walkway, kayak ramp and balustrade.
In this e-newsletter you’ll find:
- Information about the works we will be carrying out and what to expect during construction
- An update on the Whāingaroa Wharf Walkways project
- An update on the Whāingaroa Harbour Strategy.
What to expect while work is underway
The maintenance work is expected to take around three months to complete and the construction of the pontoon six months to complete, finishing in April 2023.
Here is a bit more on what you can expect during this time:
We’ll be carrying out essential maintenance work which will help to future proof the wharf. This work includes repairing some areas of concrete and steel that have worn away over time on the underside of the wharf.
Safety is important to us, and to keep our contractors and visitors to the wharf safe during construction there will be times when parts of the wharf will be closed.
There will also be a lot of noise produced by these works. This will be limited between the hours of 8am-5pm on weekdays and, when necessary, from 8am-12pm on the occasional Saturday.
We are working closely with businesses at the wharf and with residents living nearby to manage any disruption during the project.
You’ll be able to visit businesses at the wharf at anytime throughout the construction period.
