with a 1936 water main dug up from beneath Queens Gardens,
and a new stormwater drain soon to be installed in the area.
Contractors laying new pipelines in the Queens Gardens area
have come up against a ''spaghetti junction'' of underground
pipes, as work moves south along Crawford St.
The Dunedin City Council project costing almost $1 million
will replace stormwater and wastewater pipes more than 100
Mr Clifford said despite ground-penetrating radar being used,
contractors were surprised by the mass of pipes for all sorts
of services they found.
Work on the ''spaghetti junction'' at the intersection of
Rattray St and Queens Gardens was being done this week.
The project, which is expected to deal with flooding issues
in the area, is about half completed.
