What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

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.
