Traffic congestion on Kohimarama - St Johns roads

Jan from Kohimarama

Does anyone else find that the Felton Matthew lights have caused chaos on Kohimarama / St Johns roads? It now takes up to 20 minutes to make what should be a 6 minute journey to Glen Innes or Stonefields. The lights took long enough to be set up but now there is a constant logjam from St Heliers Bay Road through to Felton Matthew Ave. It is particularly exacerbated by location of the bus stops and by cars parked on the side of the road. Should we as a group be asking/telling the Council to get it sorted ?

Artist sculpts Sir John Logan Campbell : Cornwall Park, Auckland

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland artist Shona Lyon has commemorated Sir John Logan Campbell by creating this double life-sized bust.

It took Lyon four months to bring to life the detailed bronze sculpture which towers three metres high in Cornwall Park, Auckland.

Turning an old one dimensional photograph into the 360 degree sculpture proved the biggest challenge for Lyon.

The bust pays tribute to Campbell, who gifted 425 acres of One Tree Hill land to the people of New Zealand in 1901, renaming it Cornwall Park.

Special memories of growing up next to the park inspired Lyon's family to donate the sculpture.
