Napier CBD infrastructure upgrade recommences in May

Napier's CBD before it's infrastructure upgrade begins in May. The next stage of the Napier inner city infrastructure upgrade along Hastings Street is due to get underway in early May.

It is the continuation of the project which saw an upgrade of Hastings Street’s underground infrastructure, and the street surface between Albion and Emerson Streets last year. The above ground design elements include wider footpaths, a revamped parking layout, new planting and street furniture.

Planning for this part of the CBD infrastructure upgrade began in 2010. One of the most important parts of the whole upgrade is the laying of stormwater pipelines.

"It is part of a city-wide response for areas known to be susceptible to flooding," Napier City Council Director Infrastructure Jon Kingsford says.

“As with each stage of the upgrade, this year’s work further improves our ability to manage stormwater run-off, creating long term benefits for businesses, residents and visitors.”

There will be some disruption for motorists, but pedestrian access will be maintained to all businesses along Hastings Street from Emerson Street through to Shakespeare Road while the upgrade is carried out.

All new pipelines will connect to the Marine Parade stormwater outfall, underneath the viewing platform.
