Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? 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.

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

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

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?
