TACK­LING TAMAKI DRIVE FLOOD­ING

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Tamaki Drive will be raised by up to half ame­tre be­tween Point Res­o­lu­tion and the Ngapipi Bridge to re­duce the im­pact of flood­ing. Flood­ing on Tamaki Drive typ­i­cally oc­curs dur­ing king tides and ma­jor weather events. The pro­tec­tion mea­sures in­clude rais­ing parts of Tamaki Drive by up to half ame­tre, adding a curve to the sea­wall to as­sist in de­flect­ing waves from break­ing onto the foot­path and in­stal­la­tion of stormwa­ter valves on Tamaki Drive, to re­duce the in­flow of sea wa­ter through the cul­vert pipes onto the road.
