Construction & Development
Following a series of cancelled race meetings due to excessively wet conditions on the course proper, the Wellington Racing Club asked NZSTI to investigate the causes of the drainage problems and provide recommendations for drainage improvement.
The ultimate plan was to install slit drainage if and when resources allowed. The first step in this process which would solve the worst of the drainage problems was installation of pipe drains throughout the course proper. NZSTI provided specifications for the installation of this drainage and oversaw its installation.
Despite difficult conditions onsite the works were completed within the required time frame and racing was able to recommence at the targeted date. Subsequent to this drainage installation the Club has not experienced problems with cancellations due to excessive water on the course proper.
