Gosh what havoc one little email can cause. Wellington was subject to traffic delays late yesterday afternoon as the Police bomb squad closed off several central city streets. Interestingly it is the second bomb threat in less than a month.
Buses were diverted away from Willis Street and Lambton Quay so there were two bus stops nearly empty of people. There were a few standing around but they should have walked down to the Farmers bus stop ‘cos that’s where the people were.
Most days walking through that bus stop queue is like running the gauntlet but this evening was ten times worse – there were people everywhere. Those keen on saving the planet would have been pleased. It certainly showed just how many people are leaving their car in the garage and using public transport instead. It would have been a brilliant photo opportunity for someone to take advantage of.
