Eastern Pathways proposal for Five Cross Roads - CLOSE BROOKLYN ROAD

Sharon from Claudelands

Do you realise that one of the proposals for the Five Cross Roads redevelopment for safer biking/walking, bus use is to CLOSE OFF Brooklyn Road at 5 xrds end - this would mean all traffic is diverted to East Street/Pearsons Avenue/Daisy Street which is extremely undesirable. It is not too late to have your say. Attached are the proposals and feedback form - send to: glenda.dobbyn@aecom.com

Painting dark colors

Adam from Adam's Painting

Its popular to paint exterior houses black. The concern that black attracts the heat and breaks down quicker is easily managed by using Resene cool colors. You have to paint the primer in white, but that's followed by a dark color in cool colors removing any extra heat concern.
Here's a job we did in Gordonton using Resene Foundry in cool colour.

We Say/You Say: Electric Scooters

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi Hamilton,

Should electric scooters stay or go?

Electric scooters are set to stay on Hamilton Streets with pedestrian and user safety remaining a concern.

Hamilton City Council's Infrastructure Operations Committee approved the extension to operate indefinitely and has opened up a previously exclusive contract to other operators.

Councillor Sarah Thomson said she had heard from the disabled community and older residents that sharing the footpath with scooter riders could be a terrifying experience, and she had recently experienced a close call herself with a scooter rider.

"I was coming around a corner, I was pushing [my son] Leo in a pram and I nearly collided with someone riding a scooter. Leo, who is 10-and-a-half months old, would have been the first one hit."

The committee has attempted to address these concerns, with three-monthly reports needing to be submitted to ensure companies and scooter riders are adhering to regulations. Public liability insurance worth $2 million will also be required from each operator.
