‘Reveal’: Discovering what lies beneath our streets.

Have you seen people in hi-viz vests collecting data along Luxford St, Adelaide Rd, or The Parade overnight during the past week? They are from Reveal, and they are using penetrating radar to help see what’s beneath the road. This will produce an accurate map of all the utilities underground which will be extremely useful as WCC plans and designs projects for our city.

This work will continue for one or two more weeks, and will include Rintoul St and Reef St.  The details below come from Wellington City Council.

To ensure the surveying can be completed as efficiently as possible, roadside parking will not be available in 23 car parks where manholes exist and/or Metlink require temporary bus stops to be setup.

These will be marked with “No parking” cones on the day which will be removed as soon as the investigation works are complete.

Please note – any vehicles obstructing work areas or traffic may be towed to a nearby suitable area. If your vehicle is not where you parked it, please call the WCC Contact Centre at 04 499 4444.

We appreciate this investigation work may be disruptive for residents and/or businesses. We will be doing all we can to minimise the impact on your household and/or business.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience, it is much appreciated and will help us get the job done as quickly as possible.
