Poll: Are you confident Auckland's light rail project will go ahead?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland mayor Phil Goff says an announcement could be made soon on Auckland's light rail.

The $6 billion project to revive a tram network in Auckland was one of Labour's initial election promises in 2017.

After Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's big victory on October 17, the light rail system connecting the airport to Auckland's central city may finally get off the ground.

But Transport Minister Phil Twyford alluded key decisions are still to be made.

Twyford said in June the governing parties could not agree on a preferred proposal and the future of the project would be decided by the new Government following the election.

Kayaker plucked from Manukau Harbour

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Art has imitated life for Counties Manukau police.

Police Eagle helicopter crew were talking on camera about water safety when they were called to a real rescue on the Manukau Harbour.

The officers were starring in a video about dangers at sea ahead of Labour Weekend.

It took them a moment to realise the call about a kayaker in trouble was real- rather than a stitch up.

They stopped filming and rushed to the harbour after the alarm was raised about 3.20 pm on October 20.

Helicopter crew soon spotted the kayaker, who was plucked to safety by the Coastguard.

The kayaker was reported to be safe and well.
