It is now three months since the June 21st storm brought down big pine trees on Tinakori Hill. Several of them are still blocking the main walking tracks.
All that’s been done by the Wellington City Council is to stick up some nice yellow and black signs telling us that the tracks are ‘closed.’ But intrepid walkers ignore them and clamber over the huge tree trunks. One day someone will hurt a leg or worse.
How long do we have to wait for WCC bureaucrats to fix the tracks? Surely a gang of ten Masterton lumberjacks would have had them sorted out in a week, made money out of the logs, and not charged city ratepayers an arm and a leg.
