Accident road closed Tawa. Copied from local Facebook page

Jeanette from Tawa

TRAIN VS PEDESTRIAN TAWA
Please AVOID the vicinity of McClellan St / Hinau St in Tawa as emergency services deal to this on the level Crossing there. Police roadblocks are in place.
The train barrier arms are also locked down at the Collins Ave Crossing. If you need to get over the tracks, use Tawa Terrace but be aware of stop/go roadworks there today. Otherwise use Woodman Drive to come out Takapu Rd and back into Tawa from the south
ALL KAPITI TRAINS ARE REPLACED BY BUS BETWEEN PORIRUA AND WELLINGTON TIL FURTHER NOTICE

Low-tech solution

The Team from Wellington Water

Sometimes a low-tech tool is the answer.

A blocked stormwater pipe in Titahi Bay led to a CCTV investigation, which identified a blockage about 7 meters from the manhole cover. A water jetter was winched through the pipe and cleared out cans, bottles, Lego blocks and other bits of plastic, but a tangle of roots seen on the screen wouldn’t budge.

Here we have Servicepersons Grayson (at the back holding the handle) and Tito using a corkscrew extended to 7 meters to clear roots out of the pipe.

The government says the change will save homeowners time and money, but pro builder and The Block NZ foreman Peter Wolfkamp, is advising caution if you're planning a DIY sleep-out or office. Find out why, here.
