Hi Everyone! I am running for council in New Plymouth in this year's local elections. I wanted to ask for feedback from the community about what you want to see more or less of in our city! Do you have any suggestions for shaping the city in the coming years? What's going well that you would like to see more of? I'm keen to hear all about it! Please share your comments below :) I might not have any of the answers at this stage but I'm curious to hear what topics people are interested in. Thank you!
Hi neighbours - There have been seven near misses on rail crossings in Taranaki in the past year.
The locations were at Egmont Street Normanby (twice), Standish Street Inglewood, Manutahi Road Lepperton, Beaconsfield Road Midhurst, Pembroke Road Stratford and High Street Hāwera.
"The close calls took a huge toll on train drivers and those who narrowly miss death," said Kiwi Rail chief executive group Greg Miller.
Have you seen or experienced any near misses?
