Hazy weekend for New Zealand.. again

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hazy skies caused by the tragic Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!

Le Roys Bush Reserve Track Upgrade

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board

Yesterday Kaipātiki Local Board members Melanie Kenrick, Paula Gillon, Adrian Tyler and I joined council project staff and Le Roys Bush volunteers to discuss the upcoming Stage 2 track work at Le Roys Bush Reserve.
While we were there, contractors were busy installing shoe cleaning stations to allow stage 1 (Waterfall Track) to reopen to the public over the next week. :)
The Stage 2 project will begin in a few months and completes the upgrade of the "spinal track" creating a lengthy step-free route that protects kauri from dieback disease and improves accessibility.
In 2021, Stage 3 will address the remaining tracks that connect to the side roads.
