We’re re-metaling some of our tracks in the East Harbour Regional Park this week. The trails will be closed while we bring in gravel by helicopter.
This work will ensure that we protect the tracks and surrounding environment. And so you can continue to safely enjoy our parks, without getting muddy feet!

The Wellington City Council is looking at removing traffic from the central city.
