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 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????

Pōhutukawa vandalism: Allegations among Karaka residents - was it an inside job?

Reporter Reporter from Auckland Stuff

A series of accusatory hand-written notes have been delivered to residents of Harbourside Drive following Sunday’s vandalism of several trees.

Locals are feeling “absolutely disgusted” at the suggestion that they are behind the incident, which involved a vandal felling eight street pōhutukawa trees with a chainsaw.

Paul and Sue Wilson, who have lived on the road for over 10 years, arrived home on Monday from a trip to Waiheke Island to find a line of felled trees and a curt hand-written note in their letterbox.
