This includes the regenerating native plants understorey. They started by cutting the surrounding native trees on the outskirts to put in a approximately 5 metre road across the whole site. The contractors will be back on Monday. Please go and see for yourself what is happening and if you don’t like what you see make your protest known.

Flights from India to New Zealand will be suspended for two weeks in a bid to curb the rising number of travellers testing positive on arrival.

Stuff reported the restrictions ahead of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's announcement that officials had recommended the drastic and unprecedented move in light of a massive wave of cases in India.

At a press conference in Auckland on Thursday afternoon, Ardern announced that no-one who had recently been in India would be allowed into the country until April 28.

The ban covers all travellers, including New Zealand citizens and permanent residents.

This suspension will take place from 4pm on April 11 and will be in place until April 28.

India is currently battling a massive resurgence of the virus, with about 116,000 new cases announced on April 6 alone.

Auckland barrister Grant Illingworth,​ QC, said that under civil aviation law the Government could deny entry to aircraft and vessels from other countries.

New Zealand citizens have the right to enter the country and that right could not be taken away except by authority from Parliament, Illingworth said.

“But just because a New Zealand citizen is on a plane doesn’t mean that the whole plane will be allowed to come to New Zealand, and the Government almost certainly does have the authority to shut down flights from particular countries.”

Million-dollar dumps: Publicly owned properties fall to rack and ruin

To the side of East Auckland’s Te Ara ki Uta ki Tai cycleway, nestled in overgrown greenery, is a building that wouldn’t get a second glance if it weren’t for hot pink graffiti.

The house, owned by Auckland Council subsidiary Auckland Transport, was used as a site office by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency staff working on the $46 million cycleway between Glen Innes to Tāmaki Drive, Auckland Transport spokesman Mark Hannan said.

But locals say the property has been all but destroyed by vandals since the cycleway was completed in 2016.

The property is one of several that have become run down and derelict under the ownership of local government.
