“If you rely solely on park and rides, then you just actually increase congestion around the stations. Ultimately, in some stations you’ll see ‘kiss and rides’, where spouses will drop their partner off at drop off zones.”

Would you like to see more car parks built at the Albany and Constellation park and rides?

Auckland Museum translates online war records into te reo Māori

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

An online military database has been translated into te reo to honour Māori servicemen and women.

Auckland War Memorial Museum has introduced the changes to the user interfaces of its online cenotaph and collections in time for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori – Māori Language Week.

The initiative was funded by a $15,000 grant from InternetNZ, a lobby group that aims to support digital inclusion.
