Fencing is currently being installed at Lynn Reserve, Bayview, around the grass and learn-to-ride track area while work continues on the sink hole. The playground, basketball court and bush will remain accessible.
Message from Auckland Council:
Auckland Council’s Healthy Waters Department have started emergency works to repair a damaged stormwater pipe in Lynn Reserve.
We have completed our initial inspections and have fenced off most of the reserve to allow for a full investigation and work to begin on repairs.
At this stage we will keep access to the children’s playground open, however we would appreciate all children in this area being under direct supervision, please keep away from the works and particularly from vehicles entering the site from the road.
Our works to repair the pipe will take some weeks, and some of the work may be noisy and disruptive.
We will endeavour to work as quickly as possible but must acknowledge that at this initial stage we are not sure how long this work will take.
When we have confirmed the full scope of works to be done, we will update you with a project timeline.
We understand that this work may inconvenience you and the community for some time and we apologise for this disruption and thank you for your patience throughout the repair project.
If you have any health and safety concerns at any stage, please contact our 24hr call centre on 09 301 0101, who will instruct our contractors to attend urgently.
