Road closure - Mosston Road stormwater upgrade

5 February 2019

Work on upgrading the stormwater pipe to the Westbourne Manufacturing Zone has resumed in Mosston Road, which will be closed between Kowhai Street and Titoki Street for up to eight weeks before being re-assessed. The closure was temporarily lifted over the school holiday period.

If you've travelling in the Mosston Road area, please take extra care and follow all detours. A detour is still in place for heavy vehicles, using Heads Road and Carlton Avenue to enter and exit Castlecliff and the industrial zone. Thanks for your patience.

Kowhai Street temporary closure

16 January 2019

Mosston Road has temporarily re-opened to through traffic while the Mosston stormwater upgrade work focuses on the Kowhai Street stage of the project.

Kowhai Street (between Mosston Road and Miro Street) will be open to residents only with work expected to take about three to four weeks.

Please take care while travelling in this area, be aware of all temporary speed limits and follow the signposted detours. Thank you for your patience.

Mosston Road restrictions
Stormwater upgrade


The Mosston Road stormwater pipe upgrade involves upgrading stormwater services to the Westborne Manufacturing Zone (Mill Road/Manuka Street). A concrete pipe, 1350mm in diameter is being built specifically for stormwater drainage to enable industrial development in the area.

As part of this work, access to several streets will be restricted until approximately July 2019. Temporary traffic management can be expected during these works.

Latest update

Here’s an update on the work which has been completed so far and what is yet to come.

The first part of this upgrade, which is the works at the intersection of Heads Road and Mosston Road, has been completed. The intersection will be sealed as soon as weather permits. This seal will be temporary but it will be upgraded with a more substantial material soon.

The stormwater main works at Hinau Street have also been completed and this section will also be permanently re-sealed within the next two weeks. The section of Mosston Road from Heads Road to Hinau Street will also be permanently sealed in due course.

The next section of road works to install more pipework will take place on Heads Road, from the Mosston Road intersection toward town for a distance of about 250 metres. This work is likely to be completed by late November 2019.

Following this work, another stormwater pipe will be installed along Heads Road toward Castlecliff for a distance of about 220 metres. This work is likely to be completed by February 2019.

What's ahead

Temporary traffic management can be expected in the following streets for the duration of the separation activity:

  • Heads Road (East of Mosston Road) from 6 August 2018 to 26 November 2018
  • Heads Road (West of Mosston Road) from 29 October 2018 to 18 February 2019
  • Ruapehu Street from 20 December 2018 to 11 March 2019
  • Kowhai Street from 4 February 2019 to 29 April 2019
  • Titoki Street from 8 April 2019 to 29 July 2019
Although we will try to minimise full road closures as much as possible, in some cases they can’t be avoided due to the nature of the work taking place.

These will be advertised in Community Link (the Council's page in the Midweek) and on this page.
