Work is under way to repair a wastewater pipe in Victoria Street in the Wellington CBD, after it burst last night.
Traffic is down to a single lane for a small part of Victoria St and motorists are being asked to avoid the area if they can, or to expect minor delays.
The burst caused a minor overflow. Signs warning of the risk have been placed on the waterfront and a visual inspection showed no sign of any discharge. Water quality testing will be undertaken from today.
The pipe will be excavated today to assess the extent of the burst, then repairs carried out. All going well work may be completed today, but it could take longer to complete reinstatement of the area.
We’ll provide a further update on repair progress around midday.
