We’re hosting a community open day ahead of the next stage for the Omāroro pipelines project. Once built, Omāroro Reservoir will make the city’s water supply much more resilient in case of a disaster or operational failure. Right now, we’re installing the large pipes that will connect the reservoir to the existing network.
This next stage involves closing Wallace Street, Mt Cook, to traffic for a few months. A diversion will be in place via Wright St, and Adelaide Road will be the main route into the city to and from the south.
Interested? You’re welcome to attend the community drop-in session on Sunday 17 November 11am – 2pm at Massey University Executive Suite, Gate A, Wallace St. See you there.

Wellington is in a spin over e-scooters, with the city council receiving nearly 5000 submissions ahead of a decision on whether 800 electric scooters, operated by Uber-owned Jump and local startup Flamingo, will stay on the streets for the duration of an 18-month trial. What do you want to happen to the e-scooters?
