Karaka gas leak resolved

Residents in the vicinity of Hingaia Peninsula School in Karaka, Auckland, are once again free to open windows and doors, and go outside as a gas leak in the area has been shut down.

Firefighters finished working at the scene about 11.15pm after Vector's Emergency Response Team shut down the gas main.

Hingaia Road has reopened.

Three fire trucks and two Fire and Emergency support units attended the incident, which occurred after a tunnelling machine stuck the gas main earlier this evening.
