The Ranfurly Wastewater Renewal work has been completed, with the cost savings from the $1.4 million project to be used to replace additional sections of pipeline in Knowles Crescent.


It was a pleasing outcome to the project, Central Otago District Council (CODC) Capital Projects Programme Manager Patrick Keenan said.


“Thanks to the collaborative efforts between the contractor and the Council, coupled with innovative construction methodologies proposed by the contractor has resulted in some cost savings.

That means we can utilise these savings to replace another section of the old pipeline in Knowles Crescent (picture below), which is also in poor condition.

“This additional work will further enhance the pipe network and the treatment plant operation for the town of Ranfurly.”


The planned work is scheduled to start mid-June and continue through to the end of July.


There will be some traffic disruptions in Knowles Crescent during this period, and the team will work closely with residents to ensure they have access to their properties.

Updates of any changes to the schedule will be provided as required.


“Thank you for your understanding and support as we improve our community's infrastructure,” Mr Keenan said.
