UPDATE: Dixon Street/Willis Street sewer leak

The Team from Wellington Water

We have narrowed down the location of the issue to a 10m long concrete chamber at the Northern/Western corner of the Dixon Street/Willis Street intersection and will continue carrying out investigations to understand the extent of the issue. From this investigation we will form a construction plan to repair the concrete chamber.

We expect these works to continue throughout the day from 9am-4pm, for at least the next week. We will continue with the current traffic management, however any changes to the works area may alter traffic management. This will be advised if the case.

The leak is still affecting the inner Wellington Harbour, so we continue to warn people to stay out of the inner harbour specifically in the Whairepo Lagoon. We are continuing to update affected residents and businesses on the situation, and will update our website and social channels as more information comes to light.

Poll: E-scooters: should they stay or should they go?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington is in a spin over e-scooters, with the city council receiving nearly 5000 submissions ahead of a decision on whether 800 electric scooters, operated by Uber-owned Jump and local startup Flamingo, will stay on the streets for the duration of an 18-month trial. What do you want to happen to the e-scooters?

Pet sitting our border collie

Sarah from Wallaceville - Whitemans Valley

Hi all

Appealing to country folk we need a place for our border collie till my sister buys a house. He’s well trained but doesn’t get on with our lab so we need to find him a place without pets to have him. Happy to pay for his food.

Where are you renting?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Trade Me's latest figures show Wellington's median rent has topped $600 for the first time. But if you go further afield it's not much better, with the region sitting at $580, and areas like Upper Hutt, Porirua and Kāpiti Coast seeing huge increases in inquiries. Where are you choosing to rent these days?
