Service Updates > Wallace Street Roadworks - Expect delays and diversions
Valid from: 22/11/2019 12:00am
The Wright Street diversion, due to the Wellington Water Omāroro Reservoir project previously planned for 8 December 2019, will now go live 5 January 2020.
Timetables of affected routes on the Metlink website and app will be incorrect from 8 December – 4 January 2020. Please use the PDF timetables below for timetable information.
Services that would usually travel via Wallace Street will be diverted via Wright Street from 5 January until mid-2020. Please expect some delays and diversions to bus services in the area.
From 5 January, temporary bus stops will be installed on Wright Street which can be accessed from Wallace Street via a walkway.
To ease congestion in the area, Route 27 services will not be stopping at Hutchison Terminus. Route 27 will travel from Vogeltown along Hutchison Road directly onto Wright Street, bypassing the Hutchison Terminus, and vice versa. Please catch your Route 27 bus from Wright Street.
The school bus Route 770 afternoon service will be diverted via Adelaide Road, this is consistent with the existing Route 770 morning service.
