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.

Hey Neighbourly folk, can you work out who this is and where the picture was taken. The only hint I will give is that it was 1909.

Poll: Should Aayla be allowed to play?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A team of keen young Petone rugby league players will forfeit their points and risk disqualifying themselves in an upcoming tournament because one of their star players is banned.
The reason? She’s a girl. Aayla Toman, 13, has been told she’s not allowed to play in the u13 boys’ grade in Wellington’s Pacific Youth Cup because of her gender – something that led her club team, the u13 Petone Panthers, to play her ‘illegally’ all season.
New Zealand Rugby League rules state the maximum age for males and females to play in mixed gender full contact rugby league is 12 years of age.
