SH29 at Matapihi and SH2 at Waihi Road On Ramp works to start this Sunday


Motorists travelling along State Highway 29 (SH29) at Matapihi between Te Maunga (Bay Park) and the Maungatapu Bridge and also adjacent to State Highway 2 (SH2) on the the Waihi Road On Ramp are advised to expect delays as annual resurfacing works are being undertaken at these sites from Sunday 10 February through to Tuesday 12 February.

A lane reduction from double to single lane will be in place at the SH29 Matapihi site. Delays of up to 5 minutes can be expected for motorists travelling on this section of the road from 9am to 4pm.

The resurfacing work on the Waihi Road On Ramp will take place on Sunday morning (10 February), this section of road will be closed to traffic for approximately 4 hours, a short detour will be in place for north bound traffic (heading towards Katikati and Auckland) who will be diverted via Beaumaris Boulevard and Moffat Road.

Speed limit reductions will be in place at the locations of the resurfacing works. Drivers, are advised to avoid these two areas at the times the works are taking place/ or if this is not possible, to allow an additional 20 minutes to their journey time as a result of possible delays.

NZTA’s Bay of Plenty State Highway Manager, Brett Gliddon says the NZTA and their contractors are progressing well with their annual resurfacing works around the Bay of Plenty, thanks to the continued good weather.

He says, so far, there have been very few complaints and would like to thanks motorists for their cooperation and patience while the resurfacing works continue at various locations around the Bay of Plenty.

This work is weather dependant so if it is wet on the programmed days then this resurfacing work will be moved to the following weekend (Sunday 17 February).

Gordon Campbell: On The Aftermath Of The Greenwald/Snowden Revelations

The credibility issues have come down to two main ones:

1 The email This has to do with whether Key knowingly agreed to use our immigration rules as a tool to ensnare and ultimately extradite Kim Dotcom, and do so largely at the behest of Hollywood’s leading corporates and their best friend in the White House, vice-President Joseph Biden. Some of the debate in the last few days has turned on the reliability of a Warners email that seems to set out this plan in black and white. IMO, the email is just the icing on the cake...

2. Mass surveillance Earlier to day I was going to try to explain the difference between what Edward Snowden/Glenn Greenwald were talking about (ie mass surveillance via the the cable-accessing SPEARGUN programme and the Xkeyscore analytical programme) and what Key has chosen to talk about instead in order to deliberately distract and confuse the public. Then I found that Keith Ng had not only beaten me to it, but had done so with beautiful lucidity. More>>
