What makes a modern library?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Robot librarians move books past the 3D printing station, as visitors surf the free wi-fi while on their way to the cinema and restaurants. With Wellington's library out of action, modern libraries provide inspiration for what could be. But, with a blank page in front of us, what story should Wellingtonians write for our central library?

Poll: E-scooters: should they stay or should they go?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington is in a spin over e-scooters, with the city council receiving nearly 5000 submissions ahead of a decision on whether 800 electric scooters, operated by Uber-owned Jump and local startup Flamingo, will stay on the streets for the duration of an 18-month trial. What do you want to happen to the e-scooters?

MOA POINT SLUDGE UPDATE – 28 JAN

The Team from Wellington Water

We have begun CCTV through the Mt Albert tunnel, which is an essential part to our investigations, helping us to understand the extent of the fault and look into solutions for the long term repair.

Trucks continue their operations 24/7, transporting sludge from the treatment plant to the landfill. The drivers have been greeted with a positive response from the community, with the sign pictured appearing on the route to the landfill.

We will be sharing weekly updates on the Moa Point situation as works continue. However, we will provide further updates should anything change.
