Concrete spatter from roadworks

Tony from Havelock North

Was anyone travelling between Palmerston North hand Hastings on Monday night and effected by concrete spatter from roadworks? If so, can you let me know where you picked it up and (if possible) who the roading company was? We didn't see any "wash your car" signs you normally see at … View moreWas anyone travelling between Palmerston North hand Hastings on Monday night and effected by concrete spatter from roadworks? If so, can you let me know where you picked it up and (if possible) who the roading company was? We didn't see any "wash your car" signs you normally see at the sights using concrete when resurfacing. We arrived home in the dark and didn't see the front of our car was covered. We parked the car up and only returned to it today and have a serious problem on hand. I've been trying the concrete cleaner from Bunnings and it's mildly useful at best.

What support do you think Melville's new school needs?

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Teething issues at a newly amalgamated Hamilton school are a product of a speedy transition with a lack of resourcing but it’s not a lost cause, local leaders say.

In fact, they’re predicting some “sitting superstars” will be found at Mangakōtukutuku College.

Tree removals at Hikanui Pā, Tainui Reserve, Havelock North

Communications from Hastings District Council

In November 2023, Council resolved to remove the stand of exotic trees (pines, macrocarpas,and gums) from the registered archaeological site - Hikanui Pā, following severe damage to the site during Cyclone Gabrielle. The remaining stand is now more exposed than ever to wind throw and therefore … View moreIn November 2023, Council resolved to remove the stand of exotic trees (pines, macrocarpas,and gums) from the registered archaeological site - Hikanui Pā, following severe damage to the site during Cyclone Gabrielle. The remaining stand is now more exposed than ever to wind throw and therefore likely to cause further damage to the pā site. The removal of the remaining stand will allow for stabilisation matting to be installed and the planting of indigenous revegetation.

The tree removals will start during the week of 4 March 2024 and take up to six weeks to complete (weather dependent). The project will involve the removal of trees on and around the archaeological site using heavy machinery and, for part of the time, a helicopter.

Due to the danger posed by the machinery operating within the reserve and trucks needing to access it, the whole of Tainui Reserve will be closed to the public for the duration of the work. The only exception to this will be the grass area between Keith Sands Grove and Keirunga Road which will remain open, except during helicopter operations as the helicopter will land in this area for refueling. Advanced notice will be provided to nearby residents prior to helicopter activity.

The works are being undertaken under an archaeological authority from Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga and will be supervised by Archaeology Hawke’s Bay. Treescape has been contracted to undertake the tree removals.
