Net result — a new wall

Contractors have made steady progress replacing a retaining wall in Dunedin’s Town Belt. The old wall, above an old tennis court at the intersection of Maori Rd and Serpentine Ave, Mornington, was subsiding. Maori Rd is due to be closed to traffic until mid-April so the work can be carried out. Dunedin City Council transport group manager Jeanine Benson has said the $300,000 project would ensure the safety of the road and footpath above the wall.
