Crashed truck blocks Auckland’s
The NZ Transport Agency says a truck
has rolled just north of the East Tamaki Rd northbound
onramp on Auckland’s Southern Motorway (State highway 1).
Northbound traffic is down to one lane. However, all
northbound lanes may have to be closed for the recovery of
the vehicle. Drivers are advised to expect major delays and
avoid the area.
Southbound traffic is unaffected.
NZ Transport Agency works to create transport solutions for
all New Zealanders – from helping new drivers earn their
licences, to leading safety campaigns to investing in public
transport, state highways and local roads. Follow us on

Keith Ng: You’re looking at the Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) for the Public Health and Disability Amendment Bill. Basically, the courts said that the Government had to pay family members who looked after people with disabilities (because not doing so was discriminatory), so the Government passed this law to say: “Yeah nah.”
The RIS isn’t just redacted for the public – it was redacted for MPs. *Parliament* voted on this, with all the relevant facts blacked out.
Sure, it’s understandable, right? If you’re passing a law that’s really dodgy, you don’t want advice from civil servants saying “uh, this is pretty illegal” to be public. But actually, that’s not really a problem here, because in the same piece of legislation, THEY SAID THEY CAN’T BE TAKEN TO COURT. More>>
