Water outages

Carterton District Council [CDC] said there are two planned interruptions on the water supply to all properties on Wyndham St so they can connect new pipework to the existing water network. The outages are scheduled today from 10am-12pm and Thursday from 10am-3pm. CDC said the water will be back on as soon as possible but recommends residents fill up some containers with water before the outage starts. Residents should also avoid running dishwashers, washing machines, and any other appliances that use water. Hot water cylinders should also not be used because the cylinder may be damaged if the water level gets too low. Once water is turned back on, residents are urged to run their taps for a few minutes to clear any air bubbles from the pipes. Air can cause the water to turn a milky colour, but this will not affect the taste and should clear quickly, CDC said.


Waka Kotahi have advised the South Wairarapa District Council about upcoming roadworks to raise the pedestrian crossing at Fitzherbert St – near Lyon and Birdwood St. The works will start on Sunday, November 5 to mid-November, weather permitting. The upgrades will be completed overnight from 6pm-6am.

Drop-in for a district plan

A drop-in session is being held this evening for the proposed Wairarapa Combined District Plan at Waiata House at 27 Lincoln Rd, Masterton. The planning team will be there to discuss all queries and concerns about the proposed plan. Submissions are still open and close at 5pm on December 19.

Mount Bruce

Roadworks are scheduled along SH2 between an area north of Ruamahanga Gorge Rd and Bruce Rd by the Wellington Transport Alliance. Resurfacing works started on October 30 and will continue through to November 17. Further safety improvement works will take place from November 5 through to December. Masterton District Council has advised these projects will both be completed during the daytime using stop/go traffic management from 7am-4pm.
