🏢Do you live or work in a high rise building in the Wellington region?🏢

Our shaky little capital can be a bit wild at times, and those who live or work in high rise buildings face unique challenges especially during an earthquake.

That's why we have developed (with help from you guys!) some FAQs on how you can get better prepared.

Changes to be made to dangerous SH2 intersection

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The parents of a motorcyclist who died in a crash on State Highway 2 say it shouldn’t have taken their daughter’s death for authorities to upgrade an “inherently dangerous” intersection.

The comments come following an announcement by Remutaka MP Chris Hipkins that the intersection on Moonshine Hill Rd and SH2 in Upper Hutt would be improved.

Rachel Pawsey, 30, died at the intersection when her motorcycle crashed with a car in August. Safety upgrades would likely include a median and side barriers, extra traffic lights, and raised safety platforms. Hipkins said consultation on a new speed limit will happen this year.

Don't forget to change your clocks

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

New Zealand springs forward this weekend as Daylight Saving time begins.
Clocks will go forward by one hour at 2am on Sunday 27 September. Daylight saving time will continue until Sunday 4 April 2020, when clocks will go back by one hour to NZ Standard Time.

Most New Zealanders should experience a seamless transition, with modern electronic devices adjusting automatically. However, older devices may need to be adjusted manually.
Do not forget it is also a good time to check emergency plans, survival kits and smoke alarms.
