QEII Site Update - No Asbestos Risk At Track

Media Release – 23 May 2013

QEII Site Update

Following testing of an area including the public walking track near QEII stadium, it has now been confirmed that there is no risk to the public from asbestos and the area has now been re-opened.

As advised last week, a small amount of asbestos piping was recently found buried at the QEII Stadium site during the demolition, and this has prompted some further investigation by CERA.

Testing is still ongoing at the QEII site and is likely to take a further five to six weeks.

Updates will be provided as soon as further information is available.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
