Poll: Do you believe Let's Get Wellington Moving will ever happen?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The $6.4 billion Let’s Get Wellington Moving (LGWM) programme is under review, despite $4 million a month being leaked into the project.

Sources told Stuff the monthly cost was revealed to Wellington City councillors by a staff member in recent days, with one source also revealing the 20-year project was set to be reviewed. LGWM refused to comment on the monthly costs, but confirmed in a statement that three independent consultants are reviewing the programme.

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Hey Neighbourly folk, this week something a bit different - a lizard.
Photographer Louise Thomas snapped the image on a recent expedition to photograph some new bird species.

"I've had an amazing 24-hours. Yesterday, my faithful porter and I went out to Matiu/Somes Island. We saw sooty shearwaters, kākāriki, aka red-crowned parakeet, numerous skinks, and on the way back a spotted shag near the Days Bay wharf.
All three birds are new species for me. I'm afraid I have no idea what sort of skink this is, I think common skink, but it has a dark iris? Suggestions from those in the know much appreciated - I'm going cross-eyed trying to work it out on the internet.
Funny story, both Chris and I thought this was a railway spike holding up the wood on the edge of the step, then Chris said "wait, that spike has little hands."
