The Western Access Scheme 1920–1940.

Each week day, thousands of commuters travel to and from the CBD to the hill suburbs of Karori and Northland via Tinakori Road. However very few people know the story of how this once-controversial route came into being or realise what a remarkable feat of civil engineering it is. This talk will uncover the story of this infrastructural project that took 20 years from inception to completion and which cost the equivalent of tens of millions of dollars. Presented by Gábor Tóth, Local History Specialist, Wellington City Libraries.

Get out in your community and enjoy a whole week of events and activities planned with older residents in mind.

Bookings required. Email angelina@northlandcommunitycentre.org.nz or phone 04 475 8511
