From The Panmure Community Action Group


Following protests by the Panmure Community Action Group, Auckland Transport have agreed to stage an extra - and far more convenient - Information Session for Panmure on Stage 2A of the AMETI project.

This will be held at the Panmure Community Hall, Pilkington Road, on Monday February 27, from 7pm to 9pm.

Stage 2A of AMETI is designed to replace the Panmure Roundabout with a signalised intersection, replace two of Lagoon Drive's four lanes with a 24-hour two-lane busway, and add a new parallel bridge over the Tamaki River.

If you think these changes will have no impact on your daily routine or your business in Panmure, you may be in for a big surprise. The new intersection will severely restrict traffic movements out of Jellicoe Road and potentially force more traffic into the Panmure Town Centre. It will also give full priority of movement to buses to and from the east of the Tamaki River over local traffic in Panmure, and also see the transfer of a large part of Panmure's existing bus services to the new Lagoon Drive Busway.

Under the proposal, no vehicles from Jellicoe Road will be able to access Lagoon Drive, Ireland Road or the Ellerslie-Panmure Highway. Vehicles will be forced to find other routes - mainly by forcing their way through the Panmure Shopping Centre!

A full list of potential problems with the AMETI proposals is attached to this email, together with a map of the new plan. We strongly urge all Panmure residents and businesses to examine carefully what these plans mean for Panmure and make a submission to them by the closing date of March 7.

The link to the submission site is: at.govt.nz...

Remember: This is your last chance to make your voice heard over the AMETI project. After March 7, it will be too late!

Poll: Should restaurants and bars stop giving out plastic straws?

Mandy Te Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours! Plastic straws are one of the most common items found on beach clean-ups. Some food places have stopped giving them while others are giving out eco-friendly straws that are biodegradable or re-usable. Do you support this? What are your thoughts? Do you use straws often? What do you do with them afterwards?

Please add NP if you do not wish for your comment to be used in print.

Newmarket's smelly lane

Jackson Thomas Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hey neighbours!

Does anybody find themselves avoiding walking past or parking near the Newmarket Plaza Food Hall on account of the odour?
Is this Auckland's worst smelling street? Where else compares? perhaps your street has a rubbish problem that's causing a bad smell to linger?
Let us know below!
