Polar blast cost city $120,000 By COLIN WILLIAMS Upper Hutt s snowfall came at a cost, with more than $120,000 spent by the city council over the three days of the polar blast in road mainten- ance and other storm related work. City infrastructure director Lachlan Wallach says the unbudgeted cost of the storm was spent mainly on having a roads con- tractor and his staff on duty for 24 hours over the three days of the storm. A lot of work was required in keeping Parkes Line Rd open at the big dip , as with the Blue Mountains, Wallaceville and Mangaroa Hill roads all closed, Te Marua was the only access into the valley, he says. Constant work was carried out try- ing to clear those hill roads to pro- vide access, with snow grading and clearance, and the laying of grit for traction. Similar work was also needed on Moonshine Hill and Akatarawa roads. A large number of fallen trees and branches, collapsing under the weight of the snow, also needed to be cleared from many roads across the valley, Mr Wallach says.
