Right turns banned at busy Kumeū intersection

Caroline Williams Reporter from Rodney Times

Kia ora neighbours. Motorists will no longer be able to turn right onto SH16 from Coatesville-Riverhead Hwy from May.

Waka Kotahi NZTA said the right turn ban is an interim solution to improve safety at the intersection while a roundabout is designed, consented and built.

There were 39 crashes at the intersection, including one serious crash and at least three fatal crashes, between 2010 and 2020, according to Waka Kotahi data.

Those wanting to turn right can instead detour down Old Railway Rd to use the roundabout at the intersection of SH16 and Old North Rd.

The local MP and local board chair were both critical of Waka Kotahi for failing to build the roundabout, which is still in its design phase.

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
