To cater for significant growth in Auckland, Auckland Council is prioritising enabling more homes to be built, and providing adequate wastewater services is essential. By providing the necessary infrastructure ahead of future development, the delivery of much needed homes can proceed with momentum in locations, like Hobsonville Point, which are well suited for it.

Hobsonville Point is already a busy, thriving community, with great amenities within walking distance, including green, open space. Master planned developments, like Hobsonville Point, enable people to live low-carbon lifestyles, with residents using 25% less electricity and 32% less water than the Auckland average, while 67% of kids walk or bike to school.

In independent research, 96% of Hobsonville Point residents indicated that it’s a “great place to live”, with the sense of community standing out as a key feature.

More homes are already planned for Hobsonville Point, but forecasts indicate that the capacity of the existing wastewater pump station in the area is not sufficient for the projected development in the area. Therefore, a new wastewater pump station known as pump station 6 (PS6,) is required to ensure existing and future residents can continue to rely on high quality wastewater services.

The project involves installing a new wastewater pump station at the intersection of Bomb Point Road and Glidepath Road. A rising main (pressurised wastewater pipe) will be installed along Glidepath Road to Hobsonville Road, connecting to the existing Watercare wastewater manhole at the intersection of Hobsonville Point Road and Corsair Street.
