More subcontractors are expected back at work on the Coastlands Aquatic Centre site next week after the main contractor for the project, Mainzeal, went into receivership earlier this month.

About five of 30 contractors who have been working on the project returned to the site last week, and Kapiti Coast District Council, which is paying for most of the project, is assisting receivers PricewaterhouseCoopers with negotations with other subcontractors.

Council chief executive Pat Dougherty said things seemed to be moving in the right direction.

''We are getting real traction now, and I am optimistic we are getting close to a resolution we can live with.

''By next week we're aiming to be in a position whereby all parties understand what is required to complete the contract and we can confidently expect to see more work on the site.''
