Wellington City Council - Ngaio Gorge Road strengthening work
On 12th February 2018, Wellington City Council began work on repairing the upper section of the Ngaio Gorge. The focus of the works will be to investigate how to strengthen the hillside about the road where two major rain induced slips occur ed in 2017.
As part of the theme of resilience, AccuMM sensors were installed in the hillside to help remotely monitor the slip site using GPS technology out of Victoria University of Wellington. For more information on how AccuMM is helping monitor slips and updates on the Ngaio gorge site, please visit the Wellington City Council site.
