Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.

Dunedin's dramatic rethink for one-way highway system

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

Dunedin one-way roading system may be changed to accommodate the city’s new hospital and an upgrade of the CBD.

The plan proposes changing the city’s current one-way southbound route into a two-way route with minimal parking, and turning the current northbound route into a two-way local road, with the main cycleway moved to the local road outside the hospital.

An alternative route along the harbour – bypassing the city centre – could be improved to help ease congestion. The route would effectively avoid the new hospital during and after its construction.

What do you think of the proposed changes? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.
