Hey Wellington neighbours! When polled, the majority of you (39 per cent) told us you thought the city had regressed in the past decade. We're keen to know why and what you would like to see happen to get Wellington back on track. Let us know in the comments below. (Please mark comments not for print with 'NFP')
As part of our work installing a new bulk watermain in eastern Porirua, we are about to commence work on installing a chamber and more pipework at the intersection of Conclusion St and Warspite Ave, Waitangirua.
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.
Feedback from our parents and grandparents is so appreciated.
Here's a neat bit of work by WCC, in Para St Miramar. Residents wanted the big tree in the foreground of the first photo cut down as it obscured their vision when reversing out of their driveway. I was against removing a mature tree which is one of a long line. Solution: move the footpath away from the tree!
The second photo shows the view from other end of the works. The new kerbline simply extends the previous build-out at the zebra crossing, improving visibility and safety for everyone . One car park lost, one tree saved!
