Are narrowing roads putting lives at risk?

Plans being passed by Auckland Council do not seem to take the nature or use of our rural roads into consideration, according to local ratepayers.

Ghost cleaning suspected

Both Pukekohe and Waiuku rely on Auckland Transport putting an annual budget in place for the cleaning of the streets and sidewalks within the townships.

A note from Emma’s Desk

I cheated over the weekend. I may have been the first back to the Sand to Mud Fun Run finish line, but that was because I was in Kelly’s ute. That’s right, I didn’t actually run it.

Cornwall Road – More dangers highlighted

Waiuku Footpaths

I hope the town centre road works spill over onto the footpaths most of which are hazardous pedestrian traps – if footpaths exist at all. Just look at the number of streets with a footpath on one side only and then look at the design of those that do, look at the car access ramps ( most of which appear […]
