Railway Reserve Stormwater upgrade
|Project Manager:||Nelson City Council|
|Time frame:||12 weeks|
The upgrade work is now complete. However, the grass reseeding around the work area will be held over until the Spring months, when the grass will have more chance of establishing properly.

What we are doing
As part of ongoing infrastructure improvements in this area, Council is upgrading the stormwater drain along the Railway Reserve from the vicinity of Standish Place to Saxton Road West. This drain discharges into existing pipes in Saxton Road West. This work will also include improvements to the secondary (overland) flow path for flood water.
Why we are doing it
The project aims to improve on the existing discharge to soakage in this area and alleviate localised flooding currently being experienced.
Work is scheduled to start in early March and should take around 12 weeks to complete, subject to any weather delays.
