We have found we need to do some additional excavation  prior to the underground services being installed and the service lane completed. This work will be completed mid April and then we can re-open the service lane. We apologise for any inconvenience.

 The Traffic Management Plan for the Johnsonville Community Hub project has been approved, which means there will be temporary changes to the Wanaka Street Garden Park.

 Our Parks team has been given permission to use it for extra storage and parking for the construction company. We want to keep the construction company vehicles off the streets as much as possible and leave the car parks to the community.

 The seats which have been donated will be stored. At the end of the project, the garden will be reinstated in consultation with the Parks team.

 Other things you need to know:

  •  The traffic plan includes speed restrictions around the site for public safety.
  •  Unfortunately, the lane between the Keith Spry Pool and Johnsonville Community Centre will now be closed until Wednesday mid April. We are truly sorry about this and look forward to it reopening

We had the laying of the Mauri Stone and blessing held on site to mark the start of the construction phase. Deputy Mayor Jill Day and councillor Peter Gilberd joined us for the event. Karu Moeahu blessed the stone and Jane Hill, Manager of Community Networks at Wellington City Council had the privilege of laying the stone.
