Poll: Do you support council turning on splashpads in the drought?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

All seven council-owned splashpads across Tāmaki Makaurau will be open over the summer, despite water restrictions in place due to the drought.

Meanwhile, locals will be pinged for using a hose without the correct nozzle.

The council says splashpads recycle a high percentage of water, and the centres themselves have made significant water savings in the last nine months.

Northcote Point wharf back in business Monday

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Northcote Point wharf will reopen to the public on Monday and the ferry will be running again for the first time in two years.

The wharf has been renamed to Te Onewa Northcote Point, making it the first dual-named wharf on Auckland's ferry network.

It was closed in 2018 due to structural deterioration- the wooden structure under the deck had to be either repaired or replaced.

The $2.6 million work to renew the 60-year-old pier started in July and finished at the end of the year under budget despite the disruption caused by Covid-19.

Auckland Transport also upgraded the shelter for ferry users, installed new seating, improved security and lighting at the quay.
