Hi Auckland neighbours,

A leading coronavirus expert is urging the Government to make scanning mandatory at such potential "super-spreader" venues as bars and nightclubs.

The pleas follow figures revealing daily use of the Covid Tracer app has plummeted to a fifth of its peak.

Last Monday, a total of 515,759 scans were recorded nationwide, down from the high of 2.5 million on September 4.

Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.

Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Mōrena Auckland,

What do you think about the incoming increased public transport fares?

On Monday, Auckland Council announced a 4 percent increase for peak-time travel with a discount approved for off-peak travel.

According to Auckland Transport (AT), some passengers would be paying an extra 35 cents per trip, with a daily maximum spend of $20 per day which for some, would mean an unlimited daily pass.

Former AT chairman Dr Lester Levy advocated for fare freezes have not been heeded in the 2021 review.

Cyclists gain parking relief at Auckland's bus and trains stations

Auckland cyclists will find it easier to park and ride at three bus stations and one train interchange.

Akoranga, Smales Farm and Constellation bus stations on Auckland's North Shore and Panmure train station have boosted bike parking to 80 spaces.

New shelters have been installed allowing cyclists to store their bikes inside or under cover.

Dedicated motorcycle parks in the park and ride area are now available at Akoranga, Smales Farm and Constellation bus stations.

Rachel Freebairn, AT Metro's head of facilities, said demand for bike parking had certainly increased.

"More and more people are choosing to ride a bike to connect with bus or train travel which has meant there has been a shortage of suitable parking at some bus and train stations."

Freebairn said the roll out is part of AT's ongoing programme to improve cycling facilities across public transport hubs.

Bike Auckland chairwoman Barb Cuthbert said she was delighted by the increased parking along the Northern Express Busway and the bike shelters.

More people were using e-bikes to cope with hilly North Shore roads and wanted extra security at the bike parks, Cuthbert said.

The upgrade will ease pressure on car parking, she said.

Do you bike to public transport stations and ride to work?

Do you plan to use the facilities more often thanks to the boost in bike parks?
