Whanganui Midweek

North Mole work starting


Constructi­on work to repair the North Mole (pictured) will start in mid-December as part of Te Pūwaha – the Whanganui Port revitalisa­tion project. The work covers the length of the embankment from the end of the mole to the Whanganui Port. Repairs are necessary to prepare the river for an operationa­l port and for flood protection. The work is being managed by Horizons Regional Council and is expected to continue until November 2022. While constructi­on is underway, public access will be limited with no access in constructi­on areas. The constructi­on plan does enable some recreation­al and fishing access to continue in certain areas and public access to the entire area will be available over the Christmas-New Year period. The work aims to create a safer mole, with debris removed and walkable access to the end. The work at the North Mole is jointly funded by Horizons Regional Council, Whanganui District Council, and Kānoa – Regional Economic Developmen­t & Investment Unit. Community engagement on the project is ongoing. Members of the public can register for project updates at: www.whanganui.govt.nz/port
