Infrastructure Maintenance

Protecting our environment & natural resources

Taylors’ depth of experience is what sets us apart. This is important when you’re dealing with work such as river protection or chemical spraying.

The Work We Do

Our work includes river protection around farms, orchards, hop gardens, vineyards, roads and other infrastructure, willow planting, rock placement to mitigate erosion, and weed spraying.

With an established team of twelve, the Infrastructure Maintenance group has a strong commitment to training and skill development to make sure we have the right people for the right job at all times.

All our machine operators are highly skilled and all team members are fully trained before undertaking specialised tasks.

Our team works closely with landowners, the public, and special interest groups such as Fish & Game. Access to rivers is crucial for our work and this relies on open and constructive relationships with a wide range of people, including landowners and those using the rivers for recreation in our area of operation.

Infrastructure Maintenance Equipment

Taylors uses high quality gear that’s fit-for-purpose. In recent years we have been using drones extensively for monitoring and to identify required work during and after adverse events, such as flooding.

We proactively fly the rivers with a drone annually to gain information to form the basis of our work programme and re-fly areas to update information and identify damage following significant adverse weather events. We can fly the drones from safe locations and gather excellent information without exposing our team to risk.

Maintenance Locations

Taylors holds the contract with the Tasman District Council to maintain the river infrastructure for 285km of river from the Aorere River in Golden Bay through to the Waimea River.

Unfortunately we do spend quite a lot of time cleaning up domestic rubbish that’s been left in our rivers. This can include dumped cars and animal offal left behind by hunters.

Please help us to look after our rivers by not disposing of your rubbish in this way. Maintaining healthy rivers is a community effort.
