Service Updates > Wastewater Rising Main Upgrade Whitmore and Bowen Street
Valid from: 12/08/2020 12:00am
Wellington Water is getting underway with installing a new major wastewater main in Whitmore and Bowen Streets.
Due to the more recent collapse of the tunnel under Dixon Street, the need for new infrastructure of this kind has heightened to increase the city's resilience.
As a result, there will be temporary traffic management in the area for a period of approximately 6 months from go-live date of Monday 17 August 2020.
There may be delays to public services to and from Karori traveling through this area.
We will be working closely with contractors and Wellington City Council to keep delays to services to a minimum while crews undertake this vital work.
