UHCC recognises the issue ( good) and has the answer (bad).
The railway crossing south of UH rail station coupled with the four directional roundabout a few metres east is causing traffic congestion all round and the situation will simply get much worse with increase rail transport and much increased traffic.
The most obvious solution is a vehicular underpass (such as the one created south of Silverstream rail station many years ago) or an over head vehicular bridge.

But no. UHCC see resolving the situation is in removing the round about and in its place installing a set of traffic lights.

While this will go a little way towards some alleviation of the traffic snarl, it does nothing to address the lines of traffic held back by wooden arms waiting for trains to go from either direction at a greatly increased frequency.

But to the person who screamed that the UHCC would not do anything, I guess that person is mistaken.

Hello Halloween

I have no great liking or belief for Halloween. Its background is edgy and it was kind of foistered onto our society by commercial interests. In that regard not a lot different from most other celebratory annual events particularly those of American origin.

But that is not to say I haven't participated in Halloween one way or another and my wife buys lollies for us to give to any trick or treat people who knock at our door and show an inkling of a costume/ facial makeup and especially if they can actually do a trick. Most kids seem ignorant of what a "trick or treat" actually suppose to mean.

Last year we didn't have to give away any lollies as no one turned up so we enjoyed them ourselves. Pays to buy something you yourself likes.

Perhaps Halloween is waning in NZ.

There are still teenage and adult parties in NZ with a Halloween base. Maybe the adult version of dressing up in something resembling hideous and partying is pretty cool. Some adults just love dressing up for theme parties.

And I have been right in the thick of it at Art Deco in Napier and am suppose to book again for next February . But will it be going ahead?
