Protecting Cartwright Road’s landscape and community through stormwater solutions
Auckland Council needed to refresh a key segment of Cartwright Road’s stormwater network to combat upstream flooding issues and risks associated with aging infrastructure. They engaged our professionals as part of the team to make this happen.
We plan to deliver both structural and environmental solutions, balancing ecological outcomes with engineering constraints like land stability and building requirements. The improvements provide flow conveyance and protection from erosion to a confined and unstable portion of the stream, helping preserve the natural landscape. Plus, our design supports healthy fish habitat and passage. Ultimately, this infrastructure upgrade protects Cartwright Road’s community and environment while presenting the opportunity for innovation—showcasing how our multidisciplinary team can design and implement stream enhancement solutions in highly industrialized areas.
Close collaboration with the Council, contractor, ecologists, planners, and local iwi (indigenous kinship group) are central to this project’s success. The collective nature of this solution will help secure positive outcomes for the catchment’s entire stormwater network well into the future.
