Whanganui growing pains

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 11 May 2021

There's a bit of drama over a bridge in Whanganui. The town is growing rapidly and while that's good for the region it's also putting pressure on century old infrastructure. Whanganui Mayor Hamish McDouall joins Jesse to discuss the boom.
