Long walk home: the resilience of Wellington's rail network

From The Panel, 4:38 pm on 5 December 2019

If a major earthquake were to strike Wellington, up to 80,000 commuters would likely be forced to walk home.

In fact if a big one hit, the passenger rail network might well be out of action for almost three years, a report says.

We talk to Scott Dray, Team Leader of Community Resilience at Wellington Region Emergency Management Office, about an event to highlight preparedness, the annual long walk home.
