Bus stop closures on Route 23 due to resurfacing work at Manchester Street

Community Engagement Advisor from Metlink: On Our Way

Due to resurfacing work on a section of Manchester Street, Melrose from Caprera Street to Rodrigo Road, Bus Route 23 will be diverted. This resurfacing work will affect the following bus stops resulting in their closure from Tuesday 28 January to Thursday 30 January during 9am to 3pm each day.

Affected bus stops are:
Stop #6925 Manchester Street at Caprera Street
Stop #7925 Manchester Street opposite Caprera Street
Stop #6924 Wellington Zoo Stop B, Stop #7924 Wellington Zoo Stop A
Stop #6922 Mansfield Street at Roy Street (near 311)
Stop #7922 Mansfield Street (near 320)
Stop #6921 Mansfield Street at Horner Street

Due to the closure Metlink will have a shuttle bus operating from Hornsey Road through to Rodrigo Road and back, performing a loop service for customers living in Melrose.

The shuttle will mirror the Route 23 frequency and will drop off / pick up customers from Stop #7931 on Houghton Bay Road at Hornsey Road and Stop #6931 on Houghton Bay Road at Hornsey Road (near 57) enabling you to then board the Route 23 bus.

Know before you go. Plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey during work hours during these dates.

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?
