Poll: Should Auckland build a monorail? - Reply

Matt from Henderson

Yes, I believe we need to have or build a monorail! Some people may not of think of having this but you need to look at the practical side of life. How many train failures have their been in Auckland in the recent years? Maybe 4-5 (just guessing), could be more than that. You need to have a backup transport system in case one fails so to speak.

People will ring up employers saying they will be coming late because they have to use a taxi or bus to get to work because the train has had a electric fault or failure somewhere along the line or track.

Now when the train fails, the monorail can be used as a back transport system when these things happen to the train.

You wouldn't need to ring your bosses up when the train stuffs up or has a fault somewhere, the monorail would be able to be used to take you to work much more faster and much quicker too!

That's is what I have to say about that! Yes there has been a poll on this already, but sometimes it's good to get another opinion on the matter.

Stucko or Plasterboard houses - Banks Won't Sell Your House (if selling) with Stuck O Around Your House

Matt from Henderson

Hi Neighbourly, I heard something from my family member which will shock people with Plasterboard houses or Stuck O!

Apparently, anyone now who has got Plasterboard or Stuck O houses, if you want to sell your house, the banks won't let you sell your house because of the Plasterboard or Stuck O that is around and outside of your house. Not sure if this is New Zealand issue or maybe just Auckland, not sure on the exact details though.

The picture here is just an example of what a plasterboard or Stuck O is like.


Has anyone got further ideas or more in detail about Plasterboard houses and why banks can't sell with this material?
