Let’s turn the first sod!

It is good see the NZTA has finally seen sense and decided to add a bypass for Katikati to their State Highway 2 Waihi to Tauranga programme.

A very swift back pedal, which looks likely to have been prompted by 2017 being an General Election year, but a very positive one at that.

Now let's hope it doesn't get stuck in NZTA's slow wheels of bureaucracy. The community believes the land is purchased and route is designated from the last time it nearly made it over the line. So let's get the first sod turned.

K Morland, Katikati.

Are you happy with a Labour/NZ First/Green coalition?

Yes, it’s good news for the country.
No, New Zealand is screwed.
Will have to wait and see what happens.
