Pakenham St Upgrades

The Pakenham / Halsey intersection is a collaborative effort between the Auckland Transport Halsey Street project, and the Panuku Development Auckland Pakenham Street project.

Hawkins Infrastructure is the contractor on both projects with two different teams working to upgrade this area of Wynyard Quarter along with Madden Street and Gaunt Street.

Once completed, the streets will provide an integrated design feel to the area, as seen in other upgraded roads in the area such as Jellicoe Street.

Preparation for the upcoming Auckland Marathon will commence mid next week. The containers in front of the Lighter Quay building will be relocated to make way for the marathon route.
Access to the Lighter Quay building will be maintained for residents at all times. There will be trucks loading from Halsey Street – North site entrance. A spotter will be on hand at all times to assist with truck movements and ensure Lighter Quay residents have clear access.

26 September 2016

The next and LAST section of Halsey Street is now underway. Access to the Lighter Quay building will be maintained for residents at all times.

Halsey Street between Pakenham and Gaunt Street is closed to allow the connecting works to occur across the Pakenham street project (Panuku) and the Halsey street project (AT).

The remaining underlying hard fill material is being removed this week. A spotter will be on hand at all times to assist with truck movements and ensure Lighter Quay residents have clear access.

The ground stabilizing crew is working on the Pakenham/Halsey intersection. This involves large plant and equipment which will be onsite for another 3 – 4 weeks as the street is stabilized.

Working hours of machinery will only be operating between the hours of 7am and 6pm Monday to Friday, and 7am to 4pm Saturday unless otherwise advised in this newsletter or through direct channels by service providers.

The street upgrades are part of a wider programme of infrastructure improvements and future proofing in the Wynyard Quarter in advance of the additional 11,000 workers and 2,000 residents expected in the area in less than 10 years’ time. Once completed, the streets will provide an integrated design feel to the area.

  • GMS has relocated and has its new offices off Gaunt Street;
  • AKL The Grid at Lysaght is to be accessed from Halsey Street;
  • Lighter Quay is to be accessed via Halsey Street.

In the section of Pakenham Street (between Beaumont and Daldy streets) the ground stablalisation work by HiWay Stabalisers is coming to an end. Excavation work to prepare for the new services will commence over the coming weeks.

Pakenham Street (between Daldy and Halsey streets) will be closed on Wednesday 11 May 2016 for works. Initial works will involve the removal of the asphalt to undercut and expose services. HiWay Stabalisers will then transfer to this section of Pakenham Street week commencing 16 May 2016 to begin the soil stabalisation process.  Refer to the update below for further information about what this process involves.

26 April 2016

Madden Street upgrades
In the coming weeks the team will be pouring the last sections of the eastern end of Madden Street as it ties into Halsey, laying the footpath paving and planting the rain gardens. This section will be completed and opened week commencing 9 May 2016. On completion and opening of this section, work will be switched to Pakenham Street (read on below).

Pakenham Street upgrade
NOTE: While this section of Pakenham Street (between Beaumont and Daldy) is being built please note access to Hirepool is from a new entrance off Beaumont Street. Access to GMS is also off Beaumont Street (Next to JS Laurie) and Daldy Street. These businesses are open, business as usual.

As you will see, in the section of Pakenham Street (between Beaumont and Daldy) the asphalt has been stripped out and work has been done to undercut and expose services. Cement Soil Stabilisation is underway by HiWay Stabalisers. The specialist Insitu mass stabilisation (IMS) machine (usually 35 tonne excavator) injects a mixture of water and cement into the local soil via a revolving hardened mixing head. After a 1 week curing period a stabilised “bath” is formed to enable the on -going drainage works to be completed with the following advantages;

  • The bath enables deep (up to 6m in this project) excavations in a low strength  concrete type environment , where the poor re-claimed ground is stable and much less likely to collapse or fail.
  • Stabilises and contains contaminants and odours within the bath to a good degree.
  • Very importantly in this environment enables excavations below the tidal water table, thus allowing the new drainage to be installed to  required specs, and not requiring substantial de-watering.
  • Creates a very good and stable base to protect against future subsidence.C
  • reates a dry and more comfortable work area.

The closure of Pakenham Street between Daldy and Halsey Street is on track for week commencing 9 May 2016. This section of Pakenham Street will only be closed when Madden Street is completely reopened.

11 April 2016

KEY POINTS TO NOTE

Work has now switched into Phase 3: Pakenham Street. This will mean footpaths will be closed for periods and there will be increased truck movements in this area. Hirepool is now accessed from a new entrance from Beaumont Street and General Marine Services has a vehicle entry off Daldy Street and a pedestrian access from Beaumont Street. We thank you for your patience while this work takes place.

The project is currently targeting early?May when Madden Street will fully open and the remainder of Pakenham Street will close down Halsey through to Daldy. For further information refer below:

Madden Street upgrade
On Saturday 2 April 2016 Madden Street: Phase 1 between Daldy and Beaumont streets was opened. Over the next few weeks watch out for our sustainable transport public art installation on the Vector power box which has had a white undercoat painted on. Throughout the new streetscape are a collection of new street furniture items, architectural light poles and native plantings installed in collaboration with Ngati Whatua.

In the coming weeks the team will be pouring the last sections of the eastern end of Madden Street as it ties into Halsey. The project team will also be preparing and pouring the last of the Madden Street East footpaths and installing Madden East paving. The team will also be breaking out the last of the concrete on Halsey and Madden Street intersection so the old road and the new road can be seamlessly tied in. This section should be completed early May 2016. On completion of this section work will be switched to Pakenham Street.

Pakenham Street upgrade
The project has now progressed into Phase 3: Pakenham Street between Daldy and Beaumont streets. As you will see the asphalt has been stripped out and work is underway to undercut and expose services. Over the next few weeks this work will continue in preparation for the Cement Soil Stabilizing process. Before we can cement stabilize the street we

need to undercut and ensure we know about all the services in the ground. This process will take about two weeks and then the cement stabilizing of the soil can commence.

 Alternative pedestrian access is via Gaunt Street or the signposted cut through mid-block between Pakenham and Madden Streets.

The project is currently targeting early May 2016 for the closure of Pakenham Street between Daldy and Halsey Street. This section of Pakenham Street will only be closed when Madden Street is completely reopened.

You will have noticed that four Pohutukawa have been removed along Pakenham Street – they have been removed due to their poor health and due to the roots being entangled with live services. Approximately 50 new trees will be planted along Pakenham Street in their place.

Work is underway to prepare the opening of Madden Street to vehicles and pedestrians is underway. Opening of the street is proposed week commencing Monday 14 March 2015, but is dependent on us getting sign off that the work is complete.  Connection of the new Power Cables and livening of the new and upgraded power network is underway.

KEY POINTS TO NOTE
Some specific areas where you may be affected: 

  • Along Pakenham Street West between Halsey to Daldy Street parking has been removed to allow for safe working areas while we construct the utilities trench 
  • Once Vector have completed the new power network connections Madden West will be opened. 
  • In late March, once Madden Street between Beaumont and Daldy is reopened, Pakenham West (between Beaumont and Daldy) will be closed for construction works.
