Poll: Do you feel safe on cycleways?

Melanie Earley Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, a university professor has called for e-bikes to be regulated on the Northwestern cycleway after a head-on crash left him with a brain injury. Do you feel safe on cycleways around the city?

Please put NFP (Not For Publishing) if you don't want your answer used in a story.

60 DAYS till voting begins!

Shail from Three Kings

In just 60 days you will have a chance to Vote for the future of Mt Roskill and our great City of Auckland.

Together, we have achieved and delivered plenty in the last three years. But there is more to be done towards building a better and inclusive Roskill.

In the next three years, I want to focus on improving the safety of Mt Roskill, environment sustainability, and securing accessible public transport for everyone - that includes light rail on Dominion Road.

But I can’t do this alone, I need your support for myself and my team of Harry Doig, Anne-Marie Coury, Jon Turner, Bobby Shen and Julie Fairey.

Vote Shail KAUSHAL and Roskill Community Voice this Election, and please support City Vision for Council and Phil Goff for Mayor!

One man's special volunteer job at Auckland Airport

Sarah Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Meet the man who has considered Auckland Airport his second home for over 20 years.

Twice a week, 86-year-old Les Featherstone takes a taxi to the International Terminal where he volunteers for four-and-a-half hours as an airport ambassador, or Bluecoat.

Twenty-four years is a long time to hold down one job, especially as a volunteer, but Featherstone says signing up was the best thing he's ever done.

In recent times, the airport has taken on a new meaning for him following the death of his wife last month.

Do you plan to volunteer once you retire? What would be your dream role?
