Monster wasp nest

The Team from Wasp Wipeout

Well, after a (relatively) quiet couple of summers, the vespula wasps have come back big time in some locations! Auckland and the Waikato are reporting big numbers and you may have seen this story about the monster nest found just outside of Nelson. We're continuing our efforts to control the wasps through the Wasp Wipeout project, but did you know you can help as well? For information on how to help or DIY click here: bit.ly... You can also donate to the project here: givealittle.co.nz...

New 80kmh speed limits for Napier-Taupō Road

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Do you agree with proposed new speed directions for the Napier-Taupō Road?
New speed limits are being proposed on a section of the notorious Napier-Taupō Road (State Highway 5) with public consultation beginning this week.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is focusing on a section of road from Rangitaiki to Esk Valley as well as section of State Highway 51 from between Waipatu in Hastings and Marine Parade in Napier.
The proposed speed limit between Rangitaiki and Esk Valley on SH5 would reduce from 100kmh to 80kmh.
NZTA figures showed that between 2010 and 2019, 16 people were killed in crashes on SH5 and another 75 people were seriously injured.
