Roads near parliament closed ahead of protests

From Morning Report, 7:21 am on 27 September 2023

Some roads around Parliament have been closed ahead of political protests planned for tomorrow and later in the week.

Those streets include part of Lambton Quay, lower Molesworth Street, Kate Sheppard Place, and Hill Street.

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

Wellington District commander acting superintendent Wade Jennings spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
