Wellington Reading Cinemas carpark building likely to be demolished

Wellington's Reading Carpark will likely be demolished.

The building and those surrounding it were cordoned off yesterday following fears the carpark would collapse after Monday's quake.

Mayor Justin Lester said work will soon get underway to temporarily repair the building to stabilise it in case there's an aftershock.

He said the building is likely to be torn down in the medium term.
