Workers have trickled back onto the Coastlands Aquatic Centre work site this week.

Kapiti Coast District Council community services group manager Tamsin Evans said four to five contractors were at work - mainly finishing interior work.

The return follows negotiations between Mainzeal receiver PricewaterhouseCoopers and subcontractors, she said.

''The same contractor who is completing the car park and road realignment at Ngahina St for the council will be completing the road works and parking around the centre.''

Ms Evans said aquatic centre subcontractors were working for Mainzeal and do not have contracts with the council.

''As such, PricewaterhouseCoopers is negotiating with them to return to the site.''

The $21m project was on track for a grand opening at the end of March but the project stalled on Waitangi Day with the collapse of Mainzeal, the project contractor.
