• Use the Four Aves for cross-town journeys - go around rather than through.
• Fitzgerald Ave is a reliable route for both north and southbound journeys.
• Consider Colombo St and Manchester St from Bealey Ave to access the Central City.

Wilsons Rd update
• From Thursday 15 May two-way traffic will be restored from the Wilsons Rd/Centaurus Rd roundabout to Ramahana Rd. There will be a temporary roundabout in place.
• From Thursday 15 May, Wilson Rd will be one way heading towards the city between the Wilsons Rd roundabout and Koromiko St. This will be for approximately one week while wastewater repairs are carried out.

Centaurus Rd/Aynsley Terrace
• Aynsley Terrace is closed between Grange St and Centaurus Rd for road reconstruction and kerb and channel repairs until approximately mid-June. Residents will still have access to their properties.
• Road repairs continue at the intersection of Centaurus Rd and Aynsley Terrace heading west for about 150 metres. Stop/Go signs are in place.

Thanks
Thank you to everyone for being patient as SCIRT crews make progress city-wide, and to everyone who continues to go the extra mile to support their local businesses.

Gordon Campbell:
On Pharmac, Gough Whitlam And Sleater-Kinney

Ridiculous reported comments on RNZ this morning by Trade Minister Tim Groser, as he sought to dampen down concerns about the leaked draft of the IP chapter of ther Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations. According to Groser, ‘extreme’ positions are common at the outset of negotiations, and these get whittled down over the course of negotiations. Fine.

Except that we’re not at the outset of these negotiations. The outset was six years ago, and negotiators were hoping to have some sort of ‘framework’ deal finished in time for the APEC meeting in a few weeks’ time. These ‘extreme’ positions are what we’ve reached near the intended end of the negotiations.

Still, Groser did promise that the cost of medicines would not rise as a result of the TPP trade deal. Great. But this is not what politicians in other countries are saying. More>>
