QLDC continues precautionary measures

Following a further assessment this morning, Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) is continuing to implement precautionary measures throughout the district.

Debris clearance is continuing on Queenstown Beach while heavy machinery is also clearing debris on the Wānaka lakefront, so please take care if you’re in these areas.

Wastewater remains isolated on Ardmore Street and lower Helwick Street in Wānaka. The next update on this is expected tomorrow morning. Please note that the 30 km/h speed limit is still in place in Wānaka’s CBD.

More sand and sandbags are available at all locations in Wānaka, Queenstown, Glenorchy and Kingston.

Road closures remain unchanged. These include Paradise Road, Rees Valley Road, Kinloch Road, Mt Aspiring Road, The Branches Road (from the boulders), Mt Aspiring Road (from Roys Peak) and Ardmore Street (Lakeside Road to McDougall Street).

Otago Regional Council (ORC) and QLDC are continuing to monitor lake and river levels, and are prepared to implement local road closures in affected areas if necessary.

The latest modelling from ORC, which has factored current rain events, predicts Lake Wakatipu will now peak on Monday morning at 311.4m and Lake Wānaka at 280.5-280.8m.

Further updates will be provided on QLDC’s Facebook page, while updated levels for Lake Wakatipu and Lake Wānaka can be found below.

Gordon Campbell: On National Being Shafted By Its Own Creation

As it licks its wounds, let’s hope the National Party can still find time to look back with some pride at what it has achieved in Epsom. The Act Party’s nationwide success on Saturday night has been a tribute to National’s foresight, and to its ability to pick winners. Others would have looked at the dying remnants of the old Act Party and written it off. Yet National needed an MMP partner and it saw the potential where no-one else did. And so it re-grew the Act Party in a petri dish in Epsom, and carefully nurtured it back to life... More>>
