An end to the bottlenecks at Waiwhakaiho is now in sight with the $16 million Vickers Rd project set to begin. After five years of planning, investigation, consents and tendering work, construction officially start’s today now that Transport Minister Gerry Brownlee has turned the first sod. Gridlocks and congestion have been a bugbear for people for years and have raised concerns about emergency access to the northern side of the bridge. But the time of frustration was coming to an end now that construction was under way, New Plymouth MP Jonathan Young said. “For us in New Plymouth, Bell Block and Waitara it will signal the end of an era of bottlenecks and traffic jams,” he said. The project would be completed by Christmas 2015. The Vickers Road project would include two new bridges, one over the Waiwhakaiho River and one over the Te Henui Stream, as well as double lanes on both sides of the road. Bell Block will boom in 2016 and beyond!!!

Good news! The location of the water leak,here in Bell Block has been tracked to a scour valve and the NPDC have shut the valve off. Bell Block Residents can now use their water as usual. The NPDC wish to thank you for all your feedback over the last several hours. They have logged all the leaks reported to them and they will follow all of them up.A
scour valve is at low points in the reticulation and it enables sections of a water main to be drained for maintenance. The discharge from a scour valve is usually directed to the stormwater system.
