Can tooting in the Mt Vic tunnel create beautiful music?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Mt Victoria tunnel's deafening chorus of car horns could hit all the right notes for a musical masterpiece to be made in Wellington. The tunnel is known for its controversial tooting traditions, and now composer Chris Winter will work his magic on the sound. Winter is calling it "Carcophony" - he just needs top tooters to sound their horns. What do you think? Can toots make music - or should we stop tooting and embrace silence?

WISEBUYS Farewell - END OF LEASE

Stephen from Te Aro

It is with a heavy heart that we have to say goodbye. After 18 years in the business, we’ve seen some great times but now we must move on to new ventures.

It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know all the friendly faces in Wellington, and the visitors too. We can say Wellington absolutely, positively is the best damn city in the world and we’re going to miss being a part of it.

We hope we’ve helped provide everybody some good times, we know we’ve enjoyed the ride.

If you have any fond memories or photos you would like to share with us, we’d love to hear from you.

As we are on the way out, and very soon, everything must go!!! I know we always say to get in quick, but this time we really mean it! END OF LEASE 30% OFF, current stock only, some exclusions apply.

We hope to see you all one last time very soon!

💧Martinborough update💧

The Team from Wellington Water

The bore pump has been replaced and water is pumping into the reservoir again. The outdoor water ban remains in place until the reservoir is full again and everything is consistently operating as it should.

Thanks to the water conservation efforts in the township, the consumption has reduced significantly.

Keep up the good work!
