News from Raglan 23 - Raglan Wharf maintenance starting mid-August: Council says expect a lot of noise

Last year WDC asked for Raglanites for feedback on three projects to transform the Raglan Wharf. The Council has just announced that maintenance work on the wharf will start from mid-August. When this is complete construction of new features will start.

The maintenance repairs are on the underside of the wharf, with the new features being a new pontoon, an eastern walkway, kayak ramp and balustrade.

What to expect while work is underway

The maintenance work is expected to take around three months to complete and the construction of the pontoon six months to complete, finishing in April 2023.

Here is a bit more on what you can expect during this time:

Maintenance work

WDC will be carrying out essential maintenance work which will help to future proof the wharf. This work includes repairing some areas of concrete and steel that have worn away over time on the underside of the wharf.

Safety is important to the Council and to keep contractors and visitors to the wharf safe during construction there will be times when parts of the wharf will be closed.

There will also be a lot of noise produced by these works. This will be limited between the hours of 8am-5pm on weekdays and, when necessary, from 8am-12pm on the occasional Saturday.
