Lizard hunter hired as Ngaio Gorge Road upgrade begins

An $11 million Wellington project is just getting underway after a six month delay - because of lizards.

In 2017, heavy rain caused landslides on the Ngaio Gorge Road which has had a temporary fix since then.

But now, the two year project to stabilise and reinforce the slip areas has started - not with spades and hammers, but with a lizard hunter.
