Auckland Transport have confirmed that there will be 17 "transit lane zones" that will be monitored by cameras - 9 heading towards the city and 8 heading towards Birkenhead.

Each zone will contain one unit of 4 cameras, making a total of 68 cameras on Onewa Road!

Each unit includes:
* 1x scene camera (monitors whether the vehicle travelled the whole zone; sometimes it will also look at the transit lane sign for evidential purposes)
* 1x sign camera to monitor the transit lane sign if the scene camera cannot see the sign (in some instances this may be mounted on a street light pole opposite the unit)
* One relocatable pole mounted camera housing, containing:
- 1x side occupant camera (looks at the side of the vehicle to determine how many occupants are in the car)
- 1x front occupant camera (looks at the car approaching the unit, collects number plate details, and also confirms occupants in front seats).

This week Auckland Transport have been investigating sites on the City to Birkenhead side of the road for transit lane cameras.

Meanwhile, we should be hearing from Auckland Transport on the results of the clearway consultation around May.

Child and pet friendly too with Mt Victoria a couple of minutes’ walk away and a park at the bottom of the road, and you’re in zone for Devonport Primary, Stanley Bay Primary, St. Leo’s, Belmont Intermediate and Takapuna Grammar School.
The kitchen and bathroom have been modernised, and you've got ultra-fast broadband and a heat pump and DVS ventilation system to keep you cosy in winter and comfortable in summer. As well as the two bedrooms, bathroom and the bright corner kitchen, there's a spacious, sunny living room which opens on to a strong, sunny deck where there's space for outdoor seating and a barbecue, and views over the rooftops and leafy Devonport as far as the Sky Tower.
It's an easy-care, brick-and-tile unit with steps down to the shared, gated garden, its own shed for easy, safe bike storage and an off-street parking space. It's been a great rental too, but Covid-19 and other costs mean we sadly have to sell. So, if you're looking for privacy and security in a great location, close to everything in the wonderful suburb of Devonport, you’ve just found it.
Please call Nick on 021 737379 if you're interested to arrange a time to view.

Price: $875,000

Hi neighbours!

After more than a year of closed borders, Australians and New Zealanders will soon be able to jet-hop between countries after the government announced that the trans-Tasman travel bubble will be operational from April 19.

With quarantine-free travel now possible, are you more likely to head across the Tasman or travel domestically?

Fronting Australian media yesterday, Jacinda Ardern not only spoke of the excitement of families being able to be reunited, but also pitched New Zealand tourist activities to Australian viewers.

"If there is a hot spot in one of the states of Australia we may just act in the same way that another state would ... Just prepare that there may be disruptions, but what better place in the world to be stuck. Am I right?," she said.

The trans-Tasman bubble will operate on a three tier basis: Continue, Pause and Suspend. If there are a few cases in Australia linked to the border, quarantine-free travel will continue. Travel may be paused for 72 hours if there are rogue community cases and in the instance of a state or nationwide lockdown, travel will be suspended.
