There’s been a bit of speculation over at Eye of the Fish about the location of the second Mt Victoria tunnel that the NZ Transport Agency – against all logic and economic rationality – wants to drive through our neighbourhood. So here are the photos:This is the view up Paterson Street towards Wellington East Girls High. The entrance to the current Mt Victoria tunnel is on the right, and the driveway to the left leads down to one of the houses in the street owned by the NZ Transport Agency, which contains …… the entrance to the pilot tunnel drilled in the 1970s (that’s the clump of bush by the cabbage tree). As far as we can tell, this is where the new tunnel will be going through, if the cars-at-any-cost traffic engineers have their way. Which also means that all the houses in Paterson Street up to this point (i.e most of the street) will be demolished.
