Rainstorm road clean-up continues on Hawke's Bay highways

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Storms that swept through Hawke's Bay last week have left road crews with ongoing clearance work on three major highways. Repair and removal crews are clearing slips across SH2 between Napier and Wairoa at several sites between Raupunga and Tangoio.

They are also clearing a section of the highway affected by a dropout in the Sandy Creek area near Tutira. Temporary speed restrictions and stop-go signalling is in place at the slip sites while a temporary traffic light system has been installed around the dropout zone. Motorists can expect some delays.

On SH5 between Napier and Taupo slip work is being carried out at sites between Eskdale and Tangoio and temporary speed restrictions are in place, with similar restrictions along parts of SH38 between Frasertown and Waikaremoana, which was also hit hard by slips.

At the Glencoe Gorge on SH50 there was a dropout and a temporary give way control is in place, although travel delays would be only slight.

Contractors are also carrying out seal-widening projects on the northern stretch of SH2 around Kotemaori and between Te Hauke and Te Aute on the southern stretch of SH2, and there will be occasional delays due to stop-go signalling and speed restrictions.

A reburbished kitchen kitchen please ?

Teresa from Hospital Hill

Why is it that a new kitchen in my old villa is soooo hard to find?
I don’t want a new ‘looking’ kitchen but I do want a better functioning kitchen than I have. I want it to be in keeping with my old villa and not a melteca look.
Is there no artisan out there who could make me up some beautiful cupboards and drawers?
Big companies are not really Interested it seems.....
