A new report has laid bare the devastation facing the region in the event of a magnitude 7.5 quake, which has a 10 per cent chance of occurring within the next 100 years. How would you cope?
We’ve found ourselves in a bit of a spot as our landlord is not willing to extend our current lease for an additional couple of months until our new home is built.
We’re two professionals (a principal and public servant) and need to find either a short term rental or a house sitting opportunity from 28 Feb until 31 May.
If there are any opportunities out there please let us know.
Trade Me's latest figures show Wellington's median rent has topped $600 for the first time. But if you go further afield it's not much better, with the region sitting at $580, and areas like Upper Hutt, Porirua and Kāpiti Coast seeing huge increases in inquiries. Where are you choosing to rent these days?
The trucking operations that have been operating this week, continue to prevent sludge from being discharged into the Cook Strait. The alternative operation means trucks on 24 hour rotation collect the wastewater treatment byproduct at the Moa Point Treatment Plant, taking it to the landfill at Carey’s Gully.
The operation was today refined by reducing the amount of trucks on the road and splitting them into two shifts of 6-7 trucks each. These trucks are continuing to keep up with demand, and are operating efficiently.
The fault in the pipeline was located yesterday, and we are continuing to plan a repair with a temporary bypass, as well as a long term fix. The location appears to be about 200m inside the tunnel under Mt Albert.
We are working with the local community at Moa Point, and are holding a community meeting on Sunday to update them on the project and address any concerns residents may have.
We will provide further update on Monday 27 January.
