As a result, Tasman Street was closed and water was out for houses from 138 – 192 Tasman Street and on the corner of Carrington Street.

Wellington Water reported that the water was expected to remain out until 6pm. “However we have arranged a temporary water supply.”

Traffic access was restricted, and a detour was arranged via Rugby Street. Tasman Street was expected to re-open at 7pm.

    Is that from the intensive work on new water system just next to it on Wright street?
