FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

I can hear the cries now - fi­nally Broad­way will be fixed! We have all be­come ac­cus­tomed to del­i­cately driv­ing over the pot­holes but soon, we’re told, they will be no longer. The NZTA say re­pairs along Broad­way will start in Jan­uary. For the most part, work will be done at night to re­duce dis­rup­tion to Mata­mata’s thor­ough­fare. Work on Firth St has al­ready taken place and is look­ing bet­ter. Spe­cific de­tail of the planned re­pairs can be found in the NZTA’s ad­vert on page 11, but I’m sure you’ll all agree with me in say­ing it will surely be a happy start to 2016 with our roads fi­nally fixed. To me, NZTA seem to be con­sult­ing bet­ter this time around. CBD busi­nesses im­pacted by the works, such as the Ital­ian restau­rant, have sup­pos­edly been vis­ited by the agency. The care­giver of our state high­ways has passed on in­for­ma­tion so ev­ery­one is aware of the work that will be done. They have lis­tened when we all said patch­ing just won’t cut the mus­tard any longer. And so we wait with bated breath.
