This project will
Provide essential wastewater services to Peacocke
Connect to the new wastewater transfer station in Peacocke
Enable development of Peacocke to proceed
Work is under way by CB Civil to build two new wastewater pipelines to connect Peacocke with Hamilton’s existing wastewater network.
The 5.5km pipes will run from Cobham Drive (SH1), along the East Town Belt and Wairere Drive and connect to the existing wastewater network near Crosby Road. The pipeline will eventually link up with a new pump station to be built in Peacocke.
We're using a combination of open trenching and directional drilling to build the pipeline.
Work began in November 2020 at East Town Belt (Flynn Park to Marist Park), then on to Ruakura (Ruakura Road to Tramway Road) and Tramway Road (south of Fifth Avenue). The final stage of work is happening in the Wairere Drive area (Tramway Road to Carrs Road) in early 2022.
In the final stage of the project, work is being done in the East Town Belt parks – Flynn, Clyde, Lugtons and Marist – to restore grass and complete replanting in areas where the pipeline has been installed.
As we build our new community in Peacocke we need to make sure we put the right infrastructure in place at the right time, like pipes for our wastewater.

November 2021Work to install the pipeline began at the East Town Belt. The work is being done in stages, with each stage taking two to three months to complete.
June 2022Construction will end at Wairere Drive, finishing with the restoration of grassed areas and complete replanting in areas where the pipeline's been installed.
The $28.5 million project includes two pipelines running from Cobham Drive, along the Eastern Town Belt and Wairere Drive to connect into the existing wastewater system near Crosby Road. The project was made possible with the support from the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund, made up of a $180.3 million 10-year interest-free loan.
Yes – we’ll need to close roads, lanes and shared paths along sections of the pipeline during construction. Some parts of parks and playgrounds will be closed to the public while we complete the open trenching and install the pipelines.
No – these are new pipes designed to move wastewater from the new Peacocke community and won’t impact existing residents.
As part of the transfer station build we’re installing pipelines on the southern side of the river. These will then connect to pipelines being installed underneath the new bridge over the Waikato River and into the northern wastewater pipelines.
