The Demise of Alexander Road

Michael from Trentham

Not long ago Alexander Road, Trentham/Wallaceville was a quick way to get from Silverstream/Pinehaven to the Upper Hutt CBD and beyond: 80km and a straight road.
Then came a roundabout one third into it when heading north to slow things up.
But wait there is more to come just around the corner.

Not long ago Alexander Road, Trentham/Wallaceville was a quick way to get from Silverstream/Pinehaven to the Upper Hutt CBD and beyond: 80km and a straight road.
Then came a roundabout one third into it when heading north to slow things up.
But wait there is more to come just around the corner.

Soon there will be four traffic-slowing roundabouts and at least one T intersection. And with it the speed limit will surely be reduced to 60km or even 50km.

I suppose it won't get as gay as the times not all that long ago when a vehicle had to have a person walking in front of it as a safety measure.

I would very much like to be able to catch the birds so that they can live in a safe environment, e.g. Not to get run over by vehicles, their chicks to survive etc. Please any thoughts or ideas to catch and give them a safe home so I do not feel I need to feed them daily.

Oh well, it wasn"t that many years ago when in urban areas, a person had to walk in front of a moving vehicle with a flag to warn people on foot of an approaching monster.

Cemetery caretaker finds peace in 43 years on the job at Akatārawa

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

I posted something on this week last but it is such a nice story I am posting it again.

I posted something on this week last but it is such a nice story I am posting it again.

When people find out Neil Whiteman tends to graves for a living they often remark that he must have seen a fair few ghosts after nearly 43 years on the job. But the 72-year-old insists he’s never encountered one.​
For him, Akatārawa Cemetery is a peaceful place.
As a boy, he’d help his father Dave Whiteman​ dig graves during the weekend. In 1978, when Dave Whiteman retired from his role as the sexton at the Upper Hutt graveyard, Neil Whiteman took up the role.
For him, Akatārawa Cemetery is a peaceful place.
Whiteman's dedication to caring for the cemetery earned him the Individual Excellence Award at the New Zealand Cemeteries and Crematoria Awards last month.

Has anybody got any ideas for a caption?

"Thanks to a wonderful husband who took me there and a low tide, Pāuatahanui was a bird photographer's dream this afternoon! Masses of kingfishers who were either sitting on bits of driftwood or logs, in between catching little crabs, a pile of shags who were in a very flappy mood and were constantly splashing about in the water, a pair of Caspian terns who didn't seem to be getting on too well, a blue heron who was getting annoyed by a seagull who was swooping over him. So much to see and photograph! It helped wearing some wellies so I could wade in to get some closer shots."
