Transport is, by far, the most pressing issue on the North Shore.
We have spoken and listened to many in the community and there is growing frustration with the lack of planning, funding and "getting things done" with transport.
The solution is more than just getting double decker buses on Onewa Road
More For The Shore is committed to making improvements to transport and this includes solutions for
• Lake Road
• Onewa Road
• Northcote and Bayswater ferry terminals
• Better Park and Ride facilities including providing and upgrading car parking facilities

Varicose veins are often quite symptomatic with aching, heaviness, cramp and itching. These problems may cause limitations to lifestyle choices and enjoyment of life.
Even small veins can become painful and can undermine a person's confidence and self-esteem.
Examination by our vein physician followed by an ultrasound scan will determine which treatment is required. Because segments of varicose veins may not be visible on the skin surface, as they run in a deeper plane just under the skin, an ultrasound scan is carried out prior to treatment to create a "virtual map" of the lower leg veins.
The recommended treatment depends on the initial examination by our vein physician and the scan findings.
Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.
The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.
It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
Check here to see where's safe to swim.
