Road works on SH1 Waipu Bypass are ahead of schedule

The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists that its road repair and maintenance work on State Highway 1 through the Waipu Bypass is progressing well and is now expected to finish ahead of schedule well before Christmas.

Work to replace the final section of road surface between Nova Scotia Drive and Shoemaker Road will begin tonight (Wednesday) and continue through the weekend. The work is to improve safety and resilience on this stretch of the state highway.

During the daytime on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, SH1 will be reduced to one lane for northbound vehicles with traffic management in place.

There will be a detour down Nova Scotia Drive for southbound traffic. The detour is not suitable for HPMV trucks, so they will be managed through the site at appropriate times.

The final seal will be laid, weather permitting, on Monday night. The resealing was originally scheduled to finish the weekend before Christmas.

Gordon Campbell: On The RWC, And The Op Burnham Inquiry

Testimony was given that damning evidence had been culpably ignored, lost or (deliberately?) mislaid. The systems for handling secret material from our allies were – to be charitable – only loosely observed.

Moreover… vital evidence was only belatedly made available to the inquiry, and former NZDF officers later found to be central to the events under scrutiny were strangely missing from the original witness list offered by NZDF. In short, last week’s cross-examination of the military’s former top brass demonstrated in detail that the NZDF had consistently misled its Ministers (and the wider public) for years, over the impact of our military activities in Afghanistan.
