Wellington Scoop

Ninety minutes of flooding on Hutt Road, after heavy rain

Wellington Water crews were called out when a stormwater pipe overflowed on the intersection of Hutt Road and Aotea Quay at 2.30 this afternoon.

At 2.40, Wellington Water tweeted:

There is now traffic management in place whilst our crews are working to remedy the overflow. Please be careful when driving in this area and be kind to the crews who are out braving the rain

Ninety minutes later, the crews said they had contained the overflow and removed the tree log and debris which was blocking the pipeline.

Wellington Water said the blockage was likely caused by the recent rainfall. The team were cleaning up the area and traffic management should gone by 4.30pm.
