Sometimes a low-tech tool is the answer.

A blocked stormwater pipe in Titahi Bay led to a CCTV investigation, which identified a blockage about 7 meters from the manhole cover. A water jetter was winched through the pipe and cleared out cans, bottles, Lego blocks and other bits of plastic, but a tangle of roots seen on the screen wouldn’t budge.

Here we have Servicepersons Grayson (at the back holding the handle) and Tito using a corkscrew extended to 7 meters to clear roots out of the pipe.

Some are arguing the lockdown and a looming government infrastructure spend-up is an opportunity to rethink travel longer-term, particularly in urban centres like Wellington, moving away from cars and towards cycling and walking.

Porirua Book Club starts again this Monday, 25th May. Please email fejoac@gmail.com if you're interested in attending. It's very low key, and at the moment, we just pick up a bag of books from Porirua library -WHICH IS OPEN AGAIN HOORAY! - and we all read the same book, have a chat about it the following week, and have some nibbles. A different member hosts it each week. That's us.
