Fireworks Sky Show this Saturday

5 November 2013

Don’t forget – the Sky Show fireworks display is on this Saturday 9 November at 9pm, not tonight.

As usual there will be extensive traffic management measures in place - particularly on Oriental Parade and Mount Victoria.

Traffic moving east away from the central city along Oriental Parade and Evans Bay Parade will be restricted to one lane and one direction from 7pm - 10pm so emergency vehicles can access the area quickly if needed.

Evans Bay Parade will be closed to through traffic (residents’ access only) at the Cobham Drive intersection from 7pm - 10pm. There will be large numbers of parking wardens on patrol - any illegally or dangerously parked vehicles will be towed.

To control traffic on Mount Victoria, Alexandra Road will be closed at the intersection with Constable Street in Newtown once the maximum safe parking capacity is reached.

There will also be parking restrictions around the lookout along Alexandra Road and a one-way traffic flow will be in place on the roads around the lookout.

If you can, please catch the bus, train or walk into town. Traffic may well come to a complete standstill. Also, for safety reasons, please don’t stop anywhere on the highway between Petone and Wellington.

If you’re unable to make it into town to watch the fireworks display, the Metservice will be streaming it live:

In the event of bad weather, the Sky Show will be held on Sunday 10 November.
