Auckland's long-haul bus terminal: should it stay or go?

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, If Auckland Transport, and maybe SkyCity had their way, the long-haul bus terminal would be re-located by this year. Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei had no idea that their land was wanted. Does the terminal need a new downtown home? Read the story below:

"A message from Police: Have a safe Easter – at home

Brian from New Lynn

Police will be ramping up visibility in communities and on the roads including operating checkpoints over the Easter period, making sure people are safe and complying with the COVID-19 Alert Level 4 restrictions. We know many New Zealanders may have been planning to catch up with friends and family this weekend, or travel to traditional holiday destinations but we urge anyone who was planning to do this – please change your plans and stay home. To help ensure people know about the Health Act restrictions, Police will be out and about checking that people are travelling for essential purposes only. Officers will be visible in our communities and on the roads, including around popular holiday spots, and on the arterial roads to them, to make sure people are aware of the requirement that everyone in New Zealand need to stay at their current place of residence while the Level 4 restrictions are in place. Police will also be deploying checkpoints at a number of locations, in collaboration with local authorities and Civil Defence Emergency Management Groups. Our primary focus will be on reminding people if you don’t have to travel, then please don’t. It’s simple - travelling to and from different towns and cities risks spreading Covid-19, and puts lives at risk. Travelling to the bach for a holiday is not essential travel and it is not permitted. Police’s first step will be to educate, but if people continue to break the rules, Police will use their discretion to warn people, or if necessary, they could be arrested. We’re asking everyone to play their part this Easter, stick to the rules and stay home within their bubble – and keep themselves and their communities safe.

Shopping for the elderly

Ray from Henderson

Hi there
I'm in my late 60s and my father is 93 and only my wife is able to go out. We are having trouble getting to the supermarkets with large ques waiting to get in. I wish this panic buying would stop. Listen to the experts "We will not run out of stock" By bulk buying these people are depriving the elderly of essential goods. Is there a way that a time slot can be set with ALL the supermarkets for Seniors to do their shopping. How can we introduce something like this. Your help would be very much appreciated
