Pukerua Beach Road Update

Pukerua Beach Road slip – update

From Claire Giblin PCC

This is a quick update to let you know what work has been done and what plans are in place regarding the slip that occurred above Pukerua Beach Road in December last year. Thank you to residents who have provided feedback and information, plus those who have given us access to their properties to review the slip. We appreciate this is an important issue for many of you and want to reassure you that we are treating it as a priority. Below is a list of actions underway: 

  • Geotechnical experts from ENGEO are continuing to assess the slip, identify any risks and possible remedial actions
  • We are looking at hydro-seeding the areas that have slipped to stabilise any remaining loose surface soil
  • We have asked Wellington Water to investigate for leaks on Haunui Way and Haunui Road to assist in locating the source of ongoing water run-off
  • We have carried out a drone inspection of the area
  • Our CE Wendy Water and Deputy CE Andrew Dalziel have toured the area with roading engineers to see the slip first hand
  • We will continue to keep residents informed, and are always interested to hear your views and ideas.
