Steer clear of Taranaki Street this weekend

Steer clear of Taranaki Street this weekend


Motorists are urged to avoid lower Taranaki Street – between Wakefield Street and Manners Street-Courtenay Place – this weekend (12-13 April) while a tower crane is removed from a construction site.

The section of roadway will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 4am on Saturday – weather permitting - so a 350-tonne mobile crane has room to remove the tower crane from the Elevate apartments site near the Wakefield Street intersection.

In the event of windy weather on Saturday, the operation will start at 4am on Sunday.

Motorists seeking to avoid delays while getting across town should steer clear of Taranaki Street.

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>>
