We say, You Say: Roadworks

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Kia ora Hamilton,

Road improvements are currently underway to upgrade Palmerston Street in the Hamilton CBD.

For the next two months, road rebuilds and safety improvements will be undertaken, with features designed to encourage safe driving and minimise excessive speed. Around 8800 cars pass through the street during peak times with 24 crashes reported in the past five years.

Which roads in your area need work done?

St. Andrews Library refresh!

The Team from Hamilton City Council

We’re giving St Andrews Library a spruce up (including new paint, layout changes and a new fire system). To get the work done as fast as possible, we need to close for a few weeks from 16 November. We’ll be back open on 30 November with a larger, refreshed library we know you’ll love!

Poll: What are your petrol buying habits?

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Kia ora neighbours,

We're keen to hear from you about where you buy petrol/diesel and why.

In the run up to the long weekend families will be fueling up and heading to their favourite holiday spots, but who's making the most of their dollar at the pump?

If you'd like to talk about your petrol habits for a story, please email jo.lines-mackenzie@stuff.co.nz or call her on 027-5931691.
