Wellington City Council says it is not expecting trouble from tomorrow's political protests, but it has closed roads around Parliament as a precaution.

The closures, which are right next to Wellington's train station and the city's largest bus exchange, are expected to cause disruption for commuters, with bus stops being moved, and routes changed.

Wellington's deputy mayor, Laurie Foon, says it is about staying in control.

Foon spoke to Charlotte Cook.
