Mt Cook alleyway temporarily closed A potential risk for a Mt Cook house to collapse forced Wellington City Council into temporarily closing a popular walkway at the weekend. The alleyway, adjacent to the dilapidated and earthquake damaged house at 82 Wallace Street, connects Wallace Street to Wright Street and is used by pedestrians to get to a bus stop and dairy. Council’s acting building compliance and consents manager Chris Scott said engineers inspected the house last week and immediately sought the assistance of the council to block the walkway when it became obvious the building was a danger. Temporary barrier fencing was

erected at each end of the walkway last Friday but pedestrians have been shifting the fencing to take the shortcut. Chris is asking pedestrians to take heed of the barriers and recognise the old house posed real danger. “The new owners of the property want to start demolishing the house as quickly as possible – and the intention is that the demolition work should finish towards the end of next week. “When the demolition starts the walkway will, of necessity, become part of the demolition site so it’ll be impassable. “In the meantime we’re asking pedestrians to exercise patience and avoid the route,” Chris said.
