A six-year campaign to get a bus shelter installed on a busy Auckland road has finally come to fruition - and it’s all thanks to the one-man mission of Edmund Hillary Retirement Village resident Warren Barrett.

It was no mean feat, with the 88-year-old retired engineer collecting hundreds of petition signatures from fellow village residents and writing dozens of emails to 80 different people at Auckland Transport over that time.

“I just wouldn’t let it go,” he grins.

“Most people would have given up I suppose. I had nothing else better to do!” he laughs.

The Long Term Plan is open for consultation and we want YOUR input.

We have two main topics we are consulting on. These are:

🚌Should Greater Wellington own the region's bus assets (depots and charging stations)?

Should Greater Wellington own 100% of CentrePort?

The region's buses are owned by private companies and operated on our behalf. We are proposing the ownership of buses, depots, and charging infrastructure to provide long-term security and future-proof facilities.

Currently we own 76.92% of the shares for CentrePort. We are proposing the purchase of the remaining 23.08% to establish 100% control of the shares. Full ownership means CentrePort will remain in public ownership and enable us to determine its future.

Hi Neighbours,

Are you tired of waking up with back pain or feeling restless after a night's sleep?

If so, consider an orthopaedic mattress to improve sleep quality and well-being.

But the question arises, "Is an orthopaedic mattress good for everyone?"

We'll explore the benefits of orthopedic mattresses and help you decide if they're the right choice for your sleep needs.

Orthopaedic Mattress vs. Normal Mattress
The term "orthopaedic mattress" often sparks curiosity, and rightfully so. While it sounds like a specialised medical product, it's important to understand how it differs from a regular mattress.

Regular mattresses may be comfortable but might not provide enough targeted support for back pain or sleep posture.

Orthopaedic mattresses are designed to focus on aligning the spine and relieving pressure. They can help ease back pain, joint discomfort, and muscle tension, leading to healthier and more restful sleep.

Can Anyone Use an Orthopaedic Mattress?
You might wonder if orthopedic mattresses are exclusive to those with specific health conditions.

The truth is orthopaedic mattresses are designed to support your body's natural alignment.

It suits athletes, busy professionals, parents, or anyone who values good sleep. They are perfect for anyone seeking a more supportive and comfortable sleep surface.

Consider an orthopedic mattress if you want to wake up refreshed and pain-free.

What is an Orthopaedic Mattress, and How Does It Help Reduce Back Pain?
An orthopaedic mattress is not a gimmick; it's designed for orthopaedic health. It uses memory foam or latex to support your body's shape.

By aligning your spine, it reduces pressure on joints and muscles. This benefits those with back pain or arthritis. The support prevents sinking, avoiding discomfort.

Studies show it improves sleep quality and reduces back pain. Find the right firmness and type for your body and sleep preferences.

Beds4U: Your Destination for Orthopaedic Mattresses and Better Sleep
An orthopaedic mattress can be a game-changer for better sleep and back pain relief. It benefits anyone who values proper spinal alignment and comfort while sleeping.

The mattress focuses on supporting the spine and providing personalised comfort. It makes it valuable for all types of sleepers.

Whether you experience back pain or not, an orthopedic mattress can significantly improve sleep quality and overall well-being. It's a worthwhile investment for a healthier and more restful sleep experience.

At Beds4U, we understand the importance of a good night's sleep and offer a variety of orthopaedic mattresses to suit your needs.
