New T3 transit lane confirmed for Birkenhead Ave - 2021/22:
Thankyou to every one who gave feedback to Auckland Transport last year on their proposal for a T3 lane and pedestrian crossing on Birkenhead Ave.
There has been one main change since the original proposal, and that is to reduce the length of the T3 lane so that it now ends immediately to the north of Zion Road. This will allow increased distance for drivers to access their required lane.

See AT's responses to other feedback and suggestions here: at.govt.nz...

To support the transit lane, on-street parking will be removed along the opposite (western) side of the road, as there would no longer be sufficient road-width available to accommodate it.

A signalised pedestrian crossing will be installed outside 129 Birkenhead Ave, and the existing pedestrian refuge crossing outside 147 Birkenhead Ave will be removed.

AT now expect the construction to occur in 2021/22 (depending on budget). The changes will then be reviewed for their effectiveness within 12 months.

Work will take approx. 10 weeks, depending on weather, so the new court should be opening in the new year.

A wonderful new information panel has been installed at Larking's Landing telling the story behind the playboat and Frank Larking's numerous contributions to Beach Haven.
Also installed are the carved panels from the seats that Frank had built at Larking's Landing and the Hilders Park lookout. Unfortunately the seats had deteriorated and needed to be replaced, but the carved panels were saved and refurbished, and can be found next to the boat.
Thankyou to the Birkenhead Heritage Society, Beach Haven Placemaking Group, Beach Haven Birkdale Residents Association, Save Frank Larkings boat and all of the individuals who contributed their knowledge to the wording of the information sign. And thankyou to Ruth Jackson for storing the seat panels for 18 months before they were able to return to their home.

"CHERISH " is an award-winning drama from one of New Zealand’s foremost playwrights. It’s a story of the interpersonal conflicts between two couples and the children they share.

It looks at what happens when good intentions run up against the hard realities of human need.

Director Sian Davis directed a full production in 2011 because she was taken with its “immediacy, its intensity, its beauty, its tenderness. I truly believe it’s a genuine NZ classic”.

“Extraordinary and exciting.” Dominion Post Review 2003

Ken Duncum is a leading New Zealand playwright and screenwriter. His scripts have won awards in theatre and television. His plays Cherish and Trick of the Light won best new New Zealand play at the Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards in 2003 and 2004. He was awarded New Zealand's most prestigious literary award, the new Zealand Post Katherine Mansfield for 2010.[2]

The government has initiated a review into whether New Zealanders pay too much at the supermarket checkouts.

The Commerce Commission plans to follow a similar approach to that of their investigation into the price of petrol and diesel for land transport, which cost the taxpayer an estimated $2.5 million dollars. Labour promised an investigation into food prices on the election campaign and if unfair practices are found when the Commission's report is released in late 2021, necessary changes will be made.

Do you notice price differences between supermarket chains?
