RWC Meets Its Waterloo


In Wellington, work is starting on Waterloo Quay to transform the pedestrian route between the cruise ship terminal and the city before the Rugby World Cup 2011.

The improvements, which will cost about $4 million and take just under a year, are the second stage in a long-term project to make the waterfront route greener and more attractive. They include the replacement of a more than 100-year-old watermain.
The train track on the harbour side will be moved in towards the port so a new footpath can be developed. On the other side, the footpath will be widened and upgraded to just past the stadium. More pohutukawa – like the ones in the centre of Jervois Quay – will be planted on both sides of the road.
