What will the new expressway bypassing Levin mean for town businesses?

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Morning neighbours,
Wednesday's funding announcement brings certainty and timeframes for land and home owners in the likely corridor for the Ōtaki to north of Levin expressway.
The improved highway south is expected to add to the town's desirability as a place to live, but will it mean for businesses that will miss out on the through-traffic? Do you think many shops and trades depend on commuters and travellers who currently pass through the Levin? Or do think the CBD essentially serves local residents?

Rash response to cafe note on nappy changing

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Hi neighbours,
A two-sentence note to customers set off a firestorm of online emotion and negative reviews for a Palmerston North cafe. Are people too quick to be offended these days or are they justifiably riled?
