Hutt Road pedestrian crossing

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

We are carrying out minor safety improvements to the Hutt Road pedestrian crossing with construction starting today on 27 October 2020 and estimated to finish in late November.

Improvements to the existing Hutt Road pedestrian crossing near Rangiora Avenue in Kaiwharawhara were last made nearly 20 years ago when it was converted to a two-stage pedestrian crossing. With the greater volume of traffic, there is a need to create better visibility of this crossing for both road users and pedestrians.

We are doing this by installing static and electronic warning signs and road markings and aim to complete the works with minimal disruption to the community.

Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.

Tender or auction, what do you prefer?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Selling a house is always stressful and in Wellington the preferred option is tender.
Just 7.9 per cent of sales went under the auctioneer’s hammer in Wellington last month, compared with 40.6 per cent in Auckland. Meanwhile, tenders made up only one per cent of sales in the City of Sails, and two-thirds in the capital.

Please put NFP if you don want your comments used by Stuff.
