Hi, I have recently started a petition to the House of Representatives asking the Government to approve funding now for the New Zealand Transport Agency to take immediate action to remedy safety concerns and congestion on SH16 between Brigham Creek Road and Waimauku by increasing the road to four lanes.
Currently improvements to this section of road are at least 10 years away and by then the congestion will be diabolical.
Please sign the petition by clicking the link below:
It is very important to get as many signatures as possible so ask your friends to sign as well.
Hazy skies caused by the tragic Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!
