Major Diesel Spill - Central Wellington
Major Diesel Spill - Central
Motorists are warned to avoid, if
possible, the Kelburn Parade and Salamanca Road area of
Kelburn this morning following the spillage of diesel from a
vehicle on the main route between Central Terrace, the
University and The Terrace. City Council contractors are on
the scene, trying to remove the diesel from the roads,
however the surface is dangerously slippery and at least one
car is reported to have slid from the road at one point.

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour
The plan is the second component of the Party’s environmental priority this election: Rivers clean enough to swim in again, and beaches safe from oil spills.

The key policy points in the Green Party’s plan to protect our beaches from oil spills are to:
1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
