• 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.

Victoria/Montreal/Salisbury St intersection works complete
Wastewater repair work at the Victoria/Montreal/Salisbury St intersection has been completed. Victoria St is open to two way traffic again and the Montreal St lanes have also been reinstated.

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.

Plain Packs Plan: Gordon Campbell On Tobacco Politicking (And The TPP Death Watch)

Has Act leader David Seymour got the easiest job in the world, or what? Roll out of bed, turn on the radio and hmm…there do seem to be a lot of problems out there in the world.

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.

Max Rashbrooke On The 2016 Budget

The best label for this year’s announcement by Bill English might be the ‘Bare Minimum Budget’. It does the bare minimum to defuse potential political damage in a range of areas – homelessness and health are prime among them – but almost nothing to address the country’s most deep-rooted, systemic social problems. Indeed the Budget hints that these problems may get worse. More>>
