When social distancing makes things closer

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, Social distancing is the new buzzword, but out in semi-rural areas the end result seems to be that people are "closer". Do you notice a greater enjoyment in random social greetings? Read the column below:

The perfect time for repairs has gone🕳🚧🚦

Fiona from Henderson

I've mentioned this on here previously about how appalling our roads are, all over Auckland.
What I can't understand is why on earth DIDN'T the Auckland Transport get all of their workers out in Level 4, but preferably level 3 and do all of the repairs that are so desperately needed?
The roads are an essential requirement, and during the higher levels of lockdown would've been a perfect time to do all of the repairs.
However, this opportunity was lost and they won't get this opportunity again.
Instead, we are now dealing with all those damn cones all over the place, various pot holes, corrugations over so many roads, the seal worn out on so many - the list just goes on & on.
They will probably say that it was a money issue. That excuse doesn't fly as they are currently running around like blow flies fixing this and that all around the place now, and all the while causing so many traffic disruptions.
There are even the contractors who repaint the road marking do those now.
So, why on earth wasn't this all done in the one & only time they will get while it was so quiet on the roads?
The perfect weather has gone along with the opportunity as well as the perfectly empty roads.
