Tasman District Council will soon add an e-bike to its pool vehicle fleet for staff use on short trips around the Richmond area. The $4350 e-bike is projected to provide savings of 336kg of CO2 over 973 trips a year. Do you think this is a good idea? Should other councils follow suit?
Did you see smoke billowing out of the Tāhunanui Mobil petrol station around noon today?
Despite the thick black smoke pouring out of the building, there was never any fire - the station was testing its security measures, including a smoke canon which obscures the inside of the building. Thanks to Glen H for sending in the photo
