Nestled between the city and university, Wellington City Council’s Kelburn Park is a high usage venue for urban sport and recreation, used by rugby, league, soccer, winter cricket and touch rugby teams.
A poorly performing 25-year old drainage system, as well as increased usage requirements, saw the Council prioritise it for an upgrade this Spring.
Mexteds was contracted to install new primary drainage at the park, including 320 metres of collectors and over 3,000 metres of lateral drains.
With our new in-house irrigation capability, we also replaced irrigation lines after trenching.
In the Autumn we’ll be back to install secondary gravel banding for optimum drainage results.
