What do you think of the thousands of extra truck trips between Auckland and Northland?

Denise Piper Reporter from Rodney Times

There are safety and congestion fears for the road north of Auckland, because a container ship diverted to Northland will result in nearly 2700 more truck trips before Christmas.
Whangārei’s Northport has agreed to unload 1340 containers off the ship Constantinos P, due to congestion at Ports of Auckland, but National Road Carriers is warning this means 2700 extra truck trips between Marsden Point and Auckland. Are you concerned about these extra trucks?

We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

The Team from Community News

Hi Auckland,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used your local community paper.
