This weeks story is about an ex SPCA pet called Churchill, who found a new home with his new mum Danni.
"We adopted Churchill back in November and he has been an absolute darling! He settled in really well. He loves a lot of attention, which is great because I mostly work from home, so he is basically my new best friend. We are really pleased to have him in our family."
We are improving pedestrian safety on The Esplanade in Island Bay by creating a 'slow zone' and making improvements at the Shorland Park foreshore crossing point.
The improvements will include a new pedestrian refuge island, new road markings, two 'staggered gates' in the Shorland Park pathway and a marked 'slow zone' along The Esplanade.
The slow zone still retains the 50 km/h speed limit but advises drivers of the change in roadside conditions.
Thank you for your patience while we make this area of road safer for everyone.
