We've heard you loud and clear, and today the Shore Action team have launched a petition calling on Auckland Transport and Auckland Council to stop downgrading our suburban roads to poor quality, loose chip seal! Click through to the petition for much more information about this issue and comments from residents like you. Please add your views in the petition comments.
“We, the undersigned, call on Auckland Council/Auckland Transport to immediately stop downgrading suburban roads to the current low standard of chip seal, and to implement a policy of asphalt (or equivalent) road surfaces on suburban roads.”
The Shore Action team has been fielding a large number of complaints and concerns from North Shore residents on the downgrading of roads to loose, poor quality chip seal. Although we are elected members on the Kaipātiki Local Board, this is an Auckland-wide issue and will be coming to a neighbourhood near you. We have created this petition to help the decision-makers at Auckland Council (Mayor and Councillors) and Auckland Transport (Board of Directors) understand the concerns of Auckland residents and the implications of their policy decision to effectively downgrade our suburban roads.
Hi Neighbours, If buses are running near empty, maybe the traditional way of providing public transport needs a rethink. Read the story below on the empty buses of Hobsonville Point. What's the answer ?
Three locations of interest have been announced in relation to the Auckland Airport border worker who tested positive for Covid-19.
The fully-vaccinated employee, who works cleaning planes that have come from countries with a high-risk of Covid-19, tested positive for the virus on Tuesday.
The locations of interest were visited on Saturday April 17 and include:
- Westfield St Lukes Food Court, between 12:15pm and 2:30pm
- Bunnings New Lynn, between 2:30pm and 3:50pm
- Movenpick Dominion Road, between 5:15pm to 7:20pm
The Ministry of Health said people who were at these places are considered casual contacts and should monitor their health and be aware of any symptoms of Covid-19.
If anyone develops symptoms they should stay at home, contact Healthline on 0800 358 5453 and get a test.
