WATCH: Japan's Real Life Mario Kart

The Team from Play Stuff

Hi Neighbours, while waiting for the next Rugby World Cup match would you jump on board a real life Mario Kart?

When we heard that it was possible to experience real life Mario Kart in Tokyo with Maricar, we just had to visit. Join us as we dress up as Mario, jump in our go-kart and cruise through Tokyo. We speed past Roppongi, Tokyo Tower and the super famous Shibuya crossing. We didn't get the chance to throw any green shells or banana peels but this is definitely one of the most fun experiences in Tokyo.

Willis St and Dixon St - sewer leak

The Team from Wellington Water

We currently have stop go traffic management in place on the intersection of Willis St and Dixon St, due to a leak in a pressurised sewer. We are looking at the best way to excavate and repair this leak safely, and will keep you updated on any traffic management changes.

As a precaution we have put up signs at Wellington Harbour advising people not to swim due to possible contamination. We are carrying out testing in the Harbour and will advise of the results.

Poll: Should Wellington city councillors get a free lunch?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

There's no such thing as a free lunch, unless you're a Wellington City councillor.
Six years after Andy Foster led moves as a councillor to scrap catered lunches at committee meetings - saving ratepayers $40,000 - the new mayor has now decided to reinstate them. He said the backflip followed pressure from councillors, while also promising to spend less on the midday spread than previous councils. "People felt when you didn't have lunches provided on days when you were working through [into the afternoon], councillors tended to disappear all over the place to get lunch. It reduced team bonding." What do you think- should councillors get lunch provided?
