Light rail proposed for Lower Hutt

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The Green Party wants to see light rail in Lower Hutt.

The Greens’ transport policy backs the introduction of light rail between Wellington City, and the eastern and southern suburbs which they say would reduce congestion and emissions. It also includes extending it to Lower Hutt, making it possible to catch a light rail all the way from central Hutt to the airport.

Light rail could utilise the existing train network’s track gauge but Labour has already said it will not happen under its watch.

Sick of snoring? Sleep better with Snorex


Whether it's you or a partner, snoring isn't just an annoying noise. It impacts the health of the snorer, as well as the sleep quality of those around them.

Caused by the tissues of the throat relaxing and narrowing during sleep - snoring is a sign that a reduced amount of air is breathed in during sleep.

Snorex is a custom made device that holds the jaw forward, opening up the airway and stopping snoring. Made in Stokes Valley for 25 years, each Snorex is custom fitted for comfort and efficacy.
