Park Road Reconstruction

Completed Park Road Reconstruction Project 22nd December 2010.Planning started: 2009
Construction started: May 2010
Completed: December 2010

While very wet winter weather pushed out the timeline for upgrading Park Road by one month, work on reconstructing the 440m-long street has gone well.

The rebuilt road is now nine metres wide and looks much like Burness Road in Taradale, which was reconstructed in 2009.

Work on the Greenmeadows road included a new stormwater main to improve drainage in Ross Place, which comes off Park Road. The cul de sac was among the streets affected by flooding when a “rain bomb” struck Napier in October 2004.

A major benefit for upgrading roads originally formed when Taradale was a borough has come from lowering them in relation to adjacent properties. When stormwater pipes, designed to cope with 10-year storms, can’t manage heavy rainfall, the roads operate as secondary flow paths.

By temporarily holding stormwater, pipes can catch up as the rain eases. So surface water on such roads is not usually considered to be flooding – rather it is Napier’s drainage system working as intended.

Russell Roads is the roading contractor for the Park Road reconstruction and the stormwater work.
