Auckland light rail project

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

The Government has announced plans to get Auckland's light rail project back on track.

Transport Minister Michael Wood has revealed plans to set up a new working group to create a business case for the project.

It will have six months to provide the Government with information on a preferred route, along with costs and funding options for the rapid transit system from Auckland's CBD to the Auckland International Airport.

The working group will comprise representatives from the Ministry of Transport, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and Maori, Wood said.

Which route would you prefer for the light rail project?

What do you think of the delays in getting the project back on track?

How will the rapid transit system to the airport benefit you?

How to recycle broken glass

The Team from Auckland Council

Learn what to do when recycling broken glass. Large chunks are ok, as long as they are from grocery packaging. Always remember when recycling if in doubt, leave it out.

Brandon from Sandringham

Does anyone have a dishwasher cutlery basket they don’t want. We got a dishwasher second hand and didn’t see it didn’t have a cutlery basket.

Would be greatly appreciated. 😊

Pickleball now Thursday evenings in Mt. Albert

Jeff from Mount Roskill

Some of you may remember me reaching out about an amazing sport, Pickleball, back in 2018-2019. Now, Pickleball is alive and well at a number of local centres. But until recently, not so much in the evenings. Now you can play with friends & whanau after work on Thursday evenings at the Mt. Albert YMCA. 6:45 -8:45 PM. Check it out on 773 New North Road some Thursday evening. Ask for Emily to show you the ropes. Only equipment needed for newbies is comfortable clothing and court shoes. And a $5 contribution to help pay stadium rental
