We Say/You Say: Rectifying your roads

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Cambridge Edition

Hi Cambridge,

Which roads in your area are in need of an upgrade?

Six roads around the Waikato region are getting upgraded by Waka Kotahi (NZTA) with multiple safety features set to be installed.

As part of the upgrade, sections of multiple State Highways will be fitted with rumble strips, improved roadside signs and long-life line markings.

Waka Kotahi's Director of Regional Relationships David Speirs says while traffic volumes may be lower on these roads, the risk still exists for motorists using back-country roads.

“...rumble strips can reduce the total number of crashes by around 25 percent and fatal run-off-road crashes by up to 42 percent.”

The government plans to slash the number of deaths on New Zealand roads by 40 per cent over the next 10 years, with these upgrades part of its commitments to the Road Safety Strategy.

Share your roading wish list below and please remember to type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in the Cambridge Edition.

Countdown pricing

Sharon from Leamington

Went to countdown other night, there was 5 shelves prepackaged lamb steaks with no pricing on
Checked with an assistant who scanned pricing for me
The packs were all priced $12
Issue was no procing and all the packs were 270g
That works out to ve nearly $50 a kilo for those whi have brought and not realised
Seems to be a deliberate action to rip off
Not sure what consumer would think

Did you know over a quarter of us who now call Aotearoa New Zealand home were born overseas? We have one of the highest populations of people born outside NZ in the OECD and collectively we speak more than 160 different languages.

We want to understand what you think about Aotearoa New Zealand’s increasing multicultural society and the benefits and challenges that it brings and to say thanks for completing the survey, you can go in the draw to win a share of prizes. T&Cs apply.
