On Friday 6th September the Acacia Cove residents were spoilt with a visit from the Manukau Youth Jazz Orchestra. What a treat it was!

These kids, aged between 13 and 15, are talented beyond belief and it was amazing to see them in action. Not only are they very good at playing various instruments, there were a few amazing vocal performances too.

Both our Residents and our Manager, Bruce Cullington was very impressed. Well done to Musical Director Joseph Allan and thank you for bringing the kids to Acacia Cove.

We would love to see them again.

Sutton Rd, Drury - A disgraceful medley of incompetence from Council & roading contractors

Bruce from Opaheke

As Im sure everybody that travels Sutton Road is aware, there have been long & protracted 'road works' carried out over the past year or so.
What is disturbing is they have taken a mildly rough road & managed to systematically make it worse, alot worse.
Areas that have been patched are in a worse state than before they started, the finished product is now of lower quality & more dangerous than before & to top it off they also managed to work around the worst 'pre reseal' areas that needed fixing altogether !

Im sure that took some hard work to avoid those.
If there was an award for incompetence & poor workmanship the contractors involved in the roading win hands down. The council can put its hand up for obvious lack of project managing and total waste of our rates, unless the goal was to make another bad road look better by comparision.
The jokes over, those responsible need to sort this mess out immediately or find another vocation that doesnt give you any access to the publics purse strings.

Is AT putting the brakes on speed limit cuts?

Todd Niall Reporter from Papakura Courier

Auckland Transport's board may drop all or some of the planned speed restrictions on nearly 800 Auckland roads. Some might not make sense but if a lot are dropped following consultation, how can Aucklanders be sure that it not simply because a reduction is unpopular? Read the story below:
