Pukuatua Street overnight re-seal starts Sunday

Rotorua District Council (RDC) is about to commence work on re-sealing a stretch of Pukuatua Street alongside the Trade Central shopping centre and Rotorua Boys High School.

The first phase will start on Sunday night (16 February) covering the curved section of Pukuatua Street from Trade Central shopping centre to Tarewa Road.

RDC Highway & Transport Planning manager Kevin Thompson said the works would be undertaken by roading contractors at night time to avoid traffic disruption as much as possible and to optimise road safety.

“Weather permitting the work should be completed over a period of three successive nights. However while the road surface is being prepared for night time sealing work, motorists travelling during the daytime may encounter an unfinished temporary surface that requires some extra caution and care.

“The second phase of re-sealing is the straight Pukuatua Road stretch from Tarewa Road to the intersection with Old Taupo Road. This will be undertaken during the daytime the following Sunday, 23 February, and should be completed within one day.”

Mr Thompson said the work was being managed by Rotorua District Council under a contract funded by the New Zealand Transport Agency. It was estimated to cost approximately $230,000 and was part of a scheduled highway renewals programme.

“Keeping our roads and highways in good order is important to the council and the Transport Agency and this includes regular re-seals from time-to-time. We appreciate motorists’ patience and cooperation while work is underway,” he said.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
