PARTIAL ROAD CLOSURE – 21 October-21 November

The Team from Wellington Water

As part of our work installing a new bulk watermain in eastern Porirua, we are about to commence work on installing a chamber and more pipework at the intersection of Conclusion St and Warspite Ave, Waitangirua.

From 21 October, a one-way system will be in place with a detour route along Conclusion Street and Desert Gold Street.

Warspite Ave will be reduced to a single lane during the work, through the peaks and out of hours. This will result in significant journey time increase. Please find an alternative route wherever possible.

Learn more about this project on our website.

Congratulations to the Wellingtonians of the Year!

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

The Wellingtonian of the Year awards' supreme winner has been jointly awarded for the first time in 31 years, with climate change activist Sophie Handford and Muslim community leader Tahir Nawaz sharing the honour. Dominion Post editor Eric Janssen said the winners and their response were a clear reflection of events that dominated 2019. "Without Sophie and Tahir's leadership, respectively, we might fear even more for our future, and struggle even more to find peace after unprecedented pain."

Are you struggling to find a house to buy?

Sharron Pardoe Reporter from Dominion Post

Kia ora Neighbours!
Are you struggling to find a house to buy? Tell us about it!
You're probably not alone.
With a population boom on the horizon, it appears soon it will be even more difficult: a council-commissioned assessment has found the Wellington region won't be able to keep up with housing demand with a massive shortfall predicted in the next eight years.
How much of a problem is it already?
NB please put NFP after your comment if you would not like it used in a story. Thank you!
