Crowd gathering for blessin/karakia

Upper Hutt turned it on on Wednesday morning for the blessing/karakia at Sunbrae Drive.

This marks the reopening of the road following one of two culvert replacements in the area.

The manga (stream) and the whenua (land) were blessed by Matua Te Taku Parai, a kaumatua from Ngāti Toa Rangatira, and a few words were said by Mayor Guppy, and our contactors and partners, Downer NZ and Wellington Water.
