Don't trash Auckland's Recycling

The Team from Auckland Council

We can't magically recycle bags of rubbish. Putting the wrong items in your recycling bin contaminates everyone else’s recycling, causing good stuff to go to landfill. Please think before you throw.

🎇🚦Major road renovations on Rathgar Road and Universal Drive🚦🎇

Fiona from Henderson

Some major road renovations which will include a new set of traffic lights, is about to start at the intersection of Rathgar Road and Universal Drive. Also included a splat of red/orange paint similar to the mess they did in Glen Eden and the dreadful blue in Henderson.

All of this is due to start 4 July until the end September.
Good times ahead while 3 months of chaos & traffic jams will happen in winter along Universal Drive which is normally very busy, but will be slowed down so much now.

Rathgar has already been inundated with those dreadful speed bumps and now this.
I wonder when the carnage will start along Lincoln Road that they were talking about before all the lockdowns happened?

I wish we had traffic lights at the Parrs Road/Bruce McLaren Intersection as opposed to the silly round-a-bout which is already breaking up and is far too big for this narrow road.

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)

Laingholm landslip 'growing', residents face months of detours

Melanie Earley Reporter from Western Leader

Kia ora neighbours, residents of badly damaged Laingholm Drive face months of long detours after a bad slip.

In mid-June, the footpath on the road collapsed and it was cracked apart by a burst water main.

A section of the road has been blocked to traffic since and residents have been told it will take months to fix.

Residents now have to detour along Huia Rd to Victory Rd to access their homes.

Harry Gibbs, who lives near the slip with his partner and 5-month-old baby, said it now took 25 minutes to get to the supermarket in nearby Titirangi when it used to take eight.
