High Street intersection - King Edward Street and Old Wharff Road

Louise from Motueka

Many of our local residents of Motueka and beyond including tourists who come into Motueka will be familiar with this intersection. Local residents have asked NZTA to redesign this intersection many times over the last 15 - 20 years and nothing has been done. Recently NZTA did a survey along the whole of High Street
and still nothing has been done. I cross this intersection twice daily and risk my life as hundreds of others do. I'm not sure about the truth of this statement but - 'if enough residents complain to NZTA they have to investigate the complaints regarding this intersection'. So I'm urging all local residents to email NZTA and complain about this dangerous intersection. Please share this will all local residents and people you know who come through High Street and King Edward Street on a regular basis and fear for their lives - MAYBE COLLECTIVELY we can achieve what so far has been 'ZILCH' and make NZTA sit up and take notice - THIS IS A DANGEROUS INTERSECTION! and needs remedial action ASAP!

Our kinda kindness at AMI

AMI Insurance

When a Christchurch school lost four classrooms to fire, retired AMI Branch Manager Philip Buckingham knew how he could help.

Philip – “ When one of our offices is relocated or refitted as a flexi workspace, there are all sorts of useful items left behind — stationery, file cabinets, chairs, desks, computer monitor arms. For years now, we have gathered it all up and donated it to schools; initially those hit particularly hard by the Christchurch earthquakes. It’s hard to explain, but it’s just in our DNA at AMI to help people. After the Russley School fire, there was an urgent need to get the kids some stationery. On my way home, I went to the school and spoke with the principal, Greg Lewis. We couldn’t have asked for a better principal for the school, he is such a great guy.”
