Bus shelter concerns
Can I express my concerns about the destruction of perfectly adequate and freshly painted bus stops opposite Countdown in Lyttelton Ave.
I fear they will be replaced with some inadequate little mesh-sided ‘‘shelters’’ that afford no protection from the wind and rain, and provide nowhere near enough seating for the big crowd of elderly, disabled and so on who regularly have to sit and wait for buses there.
The two ‘‘modern’’ shelters on the opposite side of the road there are an example of insufficient seating.
If that is the design to be installed, then we need at least six to eight of them in a row.
Also, what is to happen to the toilets there? Are people to traipse all the way over to where the canopies were previously with their shopping and miss their buses to go to the loo? Government would do their job properly.
With regard to Fonterra, I listen to the radio a lot and hear the Chinese are building their own milk processing plants.
The Chinese have said that they want the supply to go direct to China from the gate to the shop, cutting out the New Zealand suppliers. They are building up supplies in China – Fonterra is doomed.
I listen to the radio and hear on talkback about the number of refugees we do not take. What annoys me the most is the talkback host never asks where are they going to be housed?
We are so short of houses in New Zealand. Please let me know. Finally, radio panels. On the radio they have so many radio talk panels.
Some are very good and some are so bad.
The best one is Jim Mora’s on Radio New Zealand, because he has so many different people’s opinions.
The next best is Larry Williams on Newstalk ZB. Again, he has so many different opinions being aired.
The worst one is Wellington’s 2ZB, which has the same old two whiners every Friday.
They spout so much rubbish and push their own agendas.
