We are currently doing some seabed investigations in Evans Bay – you might have seen the jack-up barge and rig stationed there.

It’s an important part of the investigation work for the proposed Cross Harbour Pipeline, which aims to provide Wellington with an alternative water supply.

Some of the work needs to be done at night and the crew are focused on minimising the level of noise. The barge has also had acoustic curtains fitted to reduce noise levels (not pictured), which have been tested and fit within the District Plan limits. We’ll continue to monitor noise levels.

We apologise for any inconvenience while we are doing these important investigations.
