Capital cleans up

8:08 am on 1 October 2010

Wellington is cleaning up after heavy rain over the past two days.

A large slip on Burma Road in the suburb of Khandallah has to be checked by building inspectors.

Another slip on Karori Road is due to be cleared by 8am on Friday, while a house in Melrose was declared unsafe because a retaining wall gave way.

Wellington City Council says about 60 callouts have been logged.

Elsewhere, Grays Road near Plimmerton and Paekakariki Hill Road were closed because of flooding and a slip.
