Passengers using Wellington Airport can expect to be bussed to their aircraft during a billion-dollar revamp.
The 20-year redevelopment will also involve the airport effectively flipping its international and regional terminals. The northern terminal will be used for regional flights instead of the current international flights and the main terminal will be extended to the south and redesigned to cater for international and domestic flights. The airport has also confirmed the $31 million purchase of Miramar golf course, with the land to be used for additional aircraft parking.

We’re building the Omāroro reservoir, an important project to address growth and improve the city's water resilience.

This project involves constructing:
- a 35 million litre buried concrete reservoir in Prince of Wales Park in the Town Belt

- connecting it to the existing water supply with a supporting new pipeline corridor along Wallace Street

- renewing of local water supplies, stormwater pipes and wastewater pipes in the area

We are currently working along Hargreaves St and Wallace St, installing the pipelines and constructing the new corridor along Wallace Street that will connect the reservoir to the network.

This month we went and had a look at how the works are progressing and took some snaps so you can see what we’re up to. These pictures from the work in Hargreaves St show some of the crew working in the chamber installing the new bulk water pipeline.
