My friend's hot water cylinder broke down 2 days after lockdown started, so they haven't had hot water since. While having no hot water might not be regarded as an emergency, is a repair still allowed? When I tried to find information I read : "Major water leaks, hot water cylinders, unblocking sanitary waste pipes, or gas servicing where there's a potential leak or issue with the gas system. So really defined and quite a tight regime."
A report by the National Road Carriers Association has found moving Ports of Auckland north to Northport would be impractical, prohibitively expensive and increase truck trips between Northland and Auckland. But MP Shane Jones says this is just "snobbery" by Aucklanders against Northland, and most of the transportation will be done by rail. What do you think?
A new report on the Ports of Auckland favours a new port being built at Manukau Harbour, rather than moving the freight to Northport. The report, which says Manukau will cost less and have less environmental impact, has been criticised by Wayne Brown, whose own report recommended a move north. What do you think?
