Bee pooh

Kenneth from Northcote Point

Maybe some of you watched the Seven Sharp program about bees "pooing" on someones windows? in Whangaparoea....is this what the world has come to? Did you know that bees are absolutely essential to pollination and keeping us alive? But some people just don't care except about there dirty windows....here's an idea....spray something on your glass to make it easier to clean....don't blame the bees OR the beekeepers.....we are all so self absorbed with our LITTLE worlds that we don't look at the big picture...dirty windows...beautiful bees...HONEY!!!!

Major road layout change on Upper Harbour Hwy

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport agency is advising North Shore motorists of a significant change to Upper Harbour Hwy (SH18) next week.

From 5am on Tuesday April 27, motorists will exit SH18 via a new off-ramp at Paul Matthews Drive.

The new road layout will shift all eastbound traffic onto the off-ramp and through a new intersection, where motorists may turn left to go towards Rosedale, and right to either continue onto Constellation Drive or turn onto Unsworth Heights and the northern motorway (SH1) on-ramp.

The road layout change is required to create a new construction zone for new northbound connections as part of the Northern Corridor Improvements, national manager of infrastructure delivery Andrew Thackwray said.

“The nature of this work means it will cause some disruption to road users, but when finished the Northern Corridor Improvements will provide much better transport options on the North Shore for freight, cars, pedestrians and cyclists.”

He encouraged motorists to plan ahead and allow extra travel time, as major delays are expected during the morning and afternoon peaks, adding that those heading to the CBD should consider using the northwestern motorway (SH16) instead.

Traffic lights and queues at the intersection will be monitored and signal phases may be adjusted to improve traffic flow if required.
