Pahiatua Town Centre Upgrade
Council finished upgrading the Pahiatua Town Centre in August 2021. The aim of this project was to create a safer, more accessible, attractive and vibrant street environment while future-proofing Pahiatua’s Main Street for growth, development and investment.
Council undertook this project in 3 stages:
- Underground works (Phase 1)
September 2019 to September 2020
The underground works include replacing the sewer and water mains on both sides of Main Street, between Duke & Cambridge Streets. There will also be stormwater upgrades to both sides of Main Street.
- Aboveground works (Phase 2)
July 2020 to July 2021
The aboveground works will transform the Pahiatua town centre into a vibrant and thriving central area that brings a sense of pride to the community and is safe and welcoming for all.
- Future works (Phase 3)
July 2021 onwards
The Pahiatua community showed a great deal of enthusiasm during the public consultation, and there were a number of features that the community wanted to see included in the upgrade. While not all of the features were able to be included in phases 1 and 2 of the project, they have not fallen off the radar and the Project Team are working with Pahiatua On Track and other community organisations to explore whether there are other avenues to achieve the desired outcomes for the community.
