Artillery Drive Stormwater Project Update

 

File No.: CP2015/21591

 

Purpose

1.       To receive an update on the Artillery Drive Stormwater Project.

Executive Summary

2.       The Artillery Drive stormwater project in Takanini encompasses three separate projects that will provide capacity for growth and development. The 1.5km long Artillery Drive Tunnel will enable growth from McLennan Park to Papakura-Clevedon Road. The other projects are the 500m long McLennen box culvert and the Takanini cascades manmade stream. These components will enable the development of approximately 1,500 properties in Takanini.

3.       The stormwater unit in Infrastructure & Environmental Services will provide a short presentation on progress to date on this southern project.

 

Recommendation

That the Infrastructure Committee:

a)      receive the Artillery Drive Stormwater Project Update

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

4.       Regular updates and workshops have been held with representatives of the Papakura Local Board on the Artillery Road stormwater project, and related projects. This has enabled the board to provide feedback and comment for incorporation into the project, if appropriate.

5.       As the project is near to the Franklin Local Board area, staff are arranging to meet with representatives of the board to introduce the project.

Māori impact statement

6.       The stormwater management approach for this area provides comprehensive stormwater treatment, from source treatment and ground water recharge, through to final polishing in the McLennan Wetland. The Takanini cascades in particular are a departure from conventional piped stormwater drainage systems and are well aligned to the Te Aranga Māori Design Principles. It is also a resilient and effective method for reducing the flood risks in the growth areas.

Implementation

7.       These projects are part of the forward Asset Management Plan work programme for the stormwater unit and are budgeted as part of the adopted Long-term Plan 2015/2025.
