A Helipro helicopter gave central city residents something to look at yesterday evening as it carefully dodged buildings during a construction job.

A helicopter was used to lift replacement heating and ventilation components on to the roof of a Boulcott St building.

Many nearby residents stopped to watch during the ten-minute operation.

The lift was scheduled for Saturday November 10 but a notice said if the weather was not acceptable the lift would be postponed until the next suitable day.

Are more speed cameras good for Wellington's roads?

Yes - if people go slower, they'll drive safer.

Only if they set them up in problem areas, not speed traps.

No - they're a revenue gaining tool only.

Blowed if I know.
