Sports Park access will just help the hoons



Have your SayWas it deliberate or a coincidence that below the story of plans to build a two-lane road running from King Street, past the rugby club grounds, and into the Waiuku College grounds, the Post had photographs of local parks and sportfields ripped up recently by vehicles?
One can only imagine the colossal and costly damage to the pristine hectares of sports fields at both Waiuku College and the Rugby Club if cars are given to similar vandalism if this hair-brained proposal goes ahead.
John Mackle, Taurangaruru
-Local board members have strongly made the point that proposals discussed have referred to ‘access’ on the grounds, rather than a ‘road’. – Editor.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
