Five roads in West Auckland remain closed after floods

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Western Leader

Auckland Transport has confirmed five roads are still closed in the region’s west after flooding on Tuesday.

Part of Bethells Road towards the beach in Waitakere is washed out and not safe to use.

Spokesperson Mark Hannan said AT is looking at options for getting temporary access across nearby private land.

Mountain Road and Lone Kauri Road have slips which could take some time to repair, and two houses are cut off on Lone Kauri Road.

Te Henga Road from Falls Road to Bethells Road has slips, but there is a detour available. Opanuku Road has trees across it in a couple of places.

“There may be other roads with flooding or debris so please drive with extra care,” Hannan said.

Who’ll get my records?

Public Trust

We all have special things we want to protect and share with the people we love when we pass away. It could be your record collection, perhaps some artwork, or even that classic car you’ve spent so long restoring. If it’s important to you, put it in your will. ​

An up-to-date will is the best way to protect your legacy – and your prized possessions. ​

If you last made a will when disco was all the rage, it’s time for an update. ​

UNBELIEVABLE!!. When is this ever going to end? Come November 1st, no doubt there will still be ongoing restrictions to our freedom.
What I resent so much, is that those of us who have been vacccinated for months, played the game, did every thing we were meant to, and still we are locked down.
All these Govt. promises that when Auckland reaches 90% vaccination we will have more freedom. What a joke. 89% vacccinated, how can it take until 1st November to vaccinate 1%.
I am so angry at all these months of being dictated to as to how I can live my life. Or not live it, might be more accurate!
