Phase Construction
Activity Culvert repair
Construction timing

Construction began in June 2022.

In July 2022, we temporarily paused this work after persistent heavy rain increased river levels, making it impossible for us to safely carry out improvements.

The project will be completed in early 2023.


This project involves repairing a 196-metre-long culvert that runs under State Highway 1 in Johnsonville's Seton Nossiter Park. 

Wellington Region’s waterways are home to at least 20 species of native freshwater fish. Most need to move freely from the river to the sea to reproduce.

This work also includes improvements that will make it easier for local fish species to move through this culvert and complete these important journeys.
