Valid from: 18/05/2018 12:00am
Start Date: 12 noon on Monday 28 May
End Date: TBC (expected end date is Friday 10 August 2018)
Times: 24 Hour Road Closure

Road Closure Details
Wellington Water will be renewing the water main within Wadestown Road. The work area will be between 177 Wadestown Road (by the Blackbridge Road corner) and 107 Wadestown Road (by Weld Street on the western side of the Wadestown Shops). For further information on these works see: https://wellingtonwater.co.nz/work-in-your-area/wadestown-road-water-mains-renewal/ (external link)
During the work, route 14 services will be diverted along Cecil Road, Mairangi Road and Norwich Street. A shuttle bus will run on a half hourly basis between Wadestown Shops and Norwich Street to service the missed bus stops along Wadestown Road and Wilton Road. Passengers will then be able to board the route 14 to continue their journey.
Please note: There will be limited capacity on the shuttle bus as due to the nature of the work sites we will not have space to run a large bus through Wadestown Road. Please be aware that you may need to wait for the next shuttle to collect you from your stop, so do allow extra travel time to account for this.
Shuttle Bus Information:
Due to the closure of Wadestown Road a Tranzit shuttle bus (as indicated by the green line on the attached map) will operate along a portion of Wadestown Road and Wilton Road to service bus stops that are open (as indicated on the map). This shuttle bus service will stop at designated Metlink Bus Stops ONLY (see map for locations.)
The shuttle bus will be running to normal timetables as much as possible, however there may be delays. Real Time Information predicted times will NOT be applicable for the bus stops on the shuttle bus portion of the bus route. The shuttle bus will be signed as Route 14 Shuttle Bus so passengers will be able to easily identify it.
During this work, there may be times where sections of Wadestown Road will be inaccessible to all traffic, including the shuttle bus. During these times, the shuttle bus may need to be diverted to avoid this closure via along Mairangi Road, and return to Wadestown Road via Lytton Street.
The shuttle will continue to service bus stops along Wilton Road and Wadestown Road.
We will endeavour to keep delays to a minimum, however please allow additional time for travel.
School Bus Services:
School bus services traveling along Wadestown Road during the road closure times will follow the diversion route. Schools will be contacted to notify parents and students of the disruption so they can plan accordingly.
The school bus routes affected are Routes 619, 672, 743, 744 and 745. The shuttle bus service will endeavour to meet the school bus schedule but delays are likely.
