I'm pleased to say that I've now had confirmation from Auckland Transport that the work currently underway is indeed the long-awaited upgrade of the intersection and creation of the new roundabout. The Kaipātiki Local Board had been told that this project was pushed out to late next year due to Council's Emergency Budget, but it seems to have been brought forward again. 🥳
A traffic light system is currently in place 🚦, and with the footpath work underway on Archers Road, you may want to avoid this area at busy times of the day. Work should be finished early next year (although I don't have an exact date).
Attached is the latest plan that I have for the intersection, and photos taken today of the progress made so far.

So, once again we go into a lower level of "lockdown"?? I hate the term "lockdown"...it sounds like a communist word...however, when is our public going to get angry and start making our "government" harden up? I don't think fines work....it's quite easy... feel sick, stay at home...
I was hoping to get in contact with someone from the Māori, Pasifika and Indian community who have either struggled to find a rental or buy a home.
The housing crisis has affected all three groups particularly badly, so if there's anyone who comes from these groups who is willing to talk please drop me a message: email@example.com
