Eastern Porirua bulk watermain - Traffic update

The Team from Wellington Water

We’re installing a new bulk watermain in eastern Porirua, which will provide resilience and cater for growth.

We are progressing well and are about to commence work on installing a chamber and more pipework at the intersection of Conclusion St and Warspite Ave, Waitangirua. This work will take about one month from 21 October – 21 November, hours of work will generally be 7am-10pm.
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.

Buy-back and amnesty for prohibited firearms and parts

Social Media Advisor from Wellington District Police

After changes to firearm laws, the government introduced a six month amnesty period. This means that anyone with firearms and parts that are no longer legal have until 20 December 2019 to hand them in to Police.

Police are providing a number of ways for people to hand-in their firearms or parts, including Police-run collection events - bit.ly...

If you can’t make a collection event, check whether there is a dealer near you - bit.ly...

If you think you have a unique prohibited item and are eligible to apply for compensation, find out how you can do that here - bit.ly...

Some firearms can also be modified and there is also a list of approved gunsmiths eligible to do the work - bit.ly...
