Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.

I have had the opportunity to work with some of you through my involvement with Forest & Bird Upper Hutt. I also chair the local group – Friends of the Hutt River. I am passionate about the health of our waterways that should be safe for people to enjoy and would like to see a thriving natural ecology in our waterways.
This job isn’t easy. We need to find solutions to fix our waste and stormwater networks. These are big changes, and needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say by following the link below.

How’s my bus network?

Community Engagement Advisor from Metlink: On Our Way

Summer holidays are over, so it’s back to business as usual in Wellington. To keep you informed with what’s happening across the city, here’s an update on the major roadwork projects happening around the city that might mean your bus of choice across all routes is taking longer to get to you.… View moreSummer holidays are over, so it’s back to business as usual in Wellington. To keep you informed with what’s happening across the city, here’s an update on the major roadwork projects happening around the city that might mean your bus of choice across all routes is taking longer to get to you.

Brandon Street earthquake strengthening: There are multiple buildings along both sides of Brandon Street, between Featherston Street and Customhouse Quay currently undergoing renovations/earthquake strengthening. The road has been closed to ensure public safety and is due to re-open sometime in April 2020.

Wallace Street Omaroro Reservoir Pipelines Project - 5 Jan 2020 to Mid-2020: The Wright Street diversion is now 6 weeks into the construction of a new reservoir beneath Wallace Street. Routes 3, 18e, 27, 718, 726 and 770 are continuing to be diverted via Wright Street which will continue until the project has been completed in mid-2020.

Willis Street Wastewater Project - 20 December to end of March 2020

With the Willis Street wastewater project underway we would like to remind you that Routes 7, 17, 17e, 25, 29 and 29e will continue to be diverted northbound towards Lambton Quay via Ghuznee Street to Taranaki Street to Manners Street until work on the permanent installation of new pipes under Willis Street is completed at the end of March 2020.

We would like to thank Wellington City Council for working with us as we keep you informed about these roadwork projects, and you our customers for your patience as our Metlink buses continue to work hard to get you where you need to be whilst these diversions are in place.
