How’s my bus network?

Community Engagement Advisor from Metlink: On Our Way

Summer holidays are over, so it’s back to business as usual in Wellington. To keep you informed with what’s happening across the city, here’s an update on the major roadwork projects happening around the city that might mean your bus of choice across all routes is taking longer to get to you.… View moreSummer holidays are over, so it’s back to business as usual in Wellington. To keep you informed with what’s happening across the city, here’s an update on the major roadwork projects happening around the city that might mean your bus of choice across all routes is taking longer to get to you.

Brandon Street earthquake strengthening: There are multiple buildings along both sides of Brandon Street, between Featherston Street and Customhouse Quay currently undergoing renovations/earthquake strengthening. The road has been closed to ensure public safety and is due to re-open sometime in April 2020.

Wallace Street Omaroro Reservoir Pipelines Project - 5 Jan 2020 to Mid-2020: The Wright Street diversion is now 6 weeks into the construction of a new reservoir beneath Wallace Street. Routes 3, 18e, 27, 718, 726 and 770 are continuing to be diverted via Wright Street which will continue until the project has been completed in mid-2020.

Willis Street Wastewater Project - 20 December to end of March 2020

With the Willis Street wastewater project underway we would like to remind you that Routes 7, 17, 17e, 25, 29 and 29e will continue to be diverted northbound towards Lambton Quay via Ghuznee Street to Taranaki Street to Manners Street until work on the permanent installation of new pipes under Willis Street is completed at the end of March 2020.

We would like to thank Wellington City Council for working with us as we keep you informed about these roadwork projects, and you our customers for your patience as our Metlink buses continue to work hard to get you where you need to be whilst these diversions are in place.

The number of properties in Severn Street affected by the water outage has been reduced from 250 properties to 70 (between 15-77 Severn Street).
However, those left without water to their homes will have another significant wait until service can be restored – the estimated time of repair is at least 8 hours.

Two nights in a row without water is unacceptable and very disruptive. We’re sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused and understand that it’s just not on.

Replacing the aged water pipe is currently scheduled to begin in March 2020; we’re looking into what can be done to speed the process up.
