The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Three locations of interest have been announced in relation to the Auckland Airport border worker who tested positive for Covid-19.

The fully-vaccinated employee, who works cleaning planes that have come from countries with a high-risk of Covid-19, tested positive for the virus on Tuesday.

The locations of interest were visited on Saturday April 17 and include:

- Westfield St Lukes Food Court, between 12:15pm and 2:30pm
- Bunnings New Lynn, between 2:30pm and 3:50pm
- Movenpick Dominion Road, between 5:15pm to 7:20pm

The Ministry of Health said people who were at these places are considered casual contacts and should monitor their health and be aware of any symptoms of Covid-19.

If anyone develops symptoms they should stay at home, contact Healthline on 0800 358 5453 and get a test.

Part-time work or volunteering

James from Meadowbank

Hi Neighbourly community,

My name is James, I'm 26 and live in Meadowbank.

I worked in Tourism for 10 years but Covid-19 restrictions meant myself and many others were made redundant at the end of 2020. I currently work part-time in a Law firm as an office assistant and am looking for some new opportunities and experiences. I'm interesting in working with animals, offering support and companionship to people in aged care and dog walking. I'm fairly flexible time wise and have my own car with a full licence.

Thank you for your attention :)

Poll: Are you in favour of the new cycleway being trialled in Auckland's CBD?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Cyclists will have additional spots to lock up their bikes with new facilities installed as part of a cycleway trial.

Project WAVE is a $1 million cycleway trial in the Viaduct Harbour to connect the Quay and Nelson Street cycleways that could have over a thousand daily users.

Auckland Transport (AT) confirmed two new bike parking facilities able to accommodate 16 bikes have been installed as part of the trial, taking the total number of bike parks along the cycleway to 56.

The project is opposed by a group of residents and business owners.

The two new bike parking facilities are located on Customs Street West between Market Place and Lower Hobson Street. One is located near the Tepid Baths, and one is near O’Hagan’s bar.

The area now has enough space for around 56 bikes, as there were already existing facilities to accommodate 40 bikes before Project WAVE was implemented.

AT spokeswoman Natalie Polley said there are also numerous new bike parking facilities on Quay Street and in the new square as part of the Downtown project.

"That doesn’t even take into account bike parking at the ferry terminal, the AT Downtown Carpark and at many other locations on the Viaduct,” she said.
