Big bang mys­tery

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A sound sim­i­lar to a ‘‘huge ex­plo­sion’’ was heard by One­hunga and Man­gere Bridge res­i­dents on June 14. Coun­ties Manukau po­lice spokes­woman Kim­ber­ley Mathews says the noise heard in the evening was not re­lated to any po­lice mat­ter. Man­gere Bridge res­i­dent Carol-Anne Armitage be­lieves the noise might be com­ing from the Manukau Har­bour, where Water­care is do­ing geotech­ni­cal in­ves­ti­ga­tions for the Cen­tral In­ter­cep­tor pro­ject. Water­care is drilling bore­holes near Manukau Yacht and Mo­tor Boat Club in Man­gere Bridge. But a spokesper­son from Water­care says the noise was not re­lated to the work. In­quiries with po­lice, the One­hunga Port, power com­pa­nies and Geonet have not re­vealed the source or di­rec­tion of the noise.
