Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

The Broken Bridge!

David from Glen Eden

Nine engineers!! Why doesn't one of them dig out the original engineering drawings, have the replacement parts made, third party inspected, then fitted. Maximum time, say two weeks??
While I'm on my beer crate, why have we not got a second crossing. It has been talked about for years … View more
Nine engineers!! Why doesn't one of them dig out the original engineering drawings, have the replacement parts made, third party inspected, then fitted. Maximum time, say two weeks??
While I'm on my beer crate, why have we not got a second crossing. It has been talked about for years and years and years! And all they do is talk talk talk. Where is the resolve, the go get, the leadership. Why are we dead from the neck up?????
And while I'm at it, why isn't Whenuapai made ready for use as a second Auckland airport. Imagine the scene when the Mangere airport runway is unusable?? It will happen one day.

Why do we wait for disasters when obvious needs can be easily foreseen and when we have the resources?? It's called planning. PLANNING with foresight.
Same with water supplies, car parking(sick) and road quality. Why do we pay such huge salaries for incompetence????

Coronavirus is more of a reason to sort out the stadium

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, It's easy to say things shouldn't be done because we need to focus on Covid-19 elimination, but maybe that's more of an argument to sort out the stadium plan. Read the story below.
