Papakura Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

Please keep your com­ments com­ing on our Neigh­bourly and Face­book pages re­gard­ing the ed­i­to­rial’s topic last week - the mow­ing of grass (or lack of) in our coun­cil-main­tained pub­lic green spa­ces and street berms, and the qual­ity of the work. On an­other top­i­cal sub­ject, it’s re­fresh­ing to read in the page 3 news brief that sense could pre­vail re­gard­ing the con­tentious cy­cle lane on Great South Road at Takanini, that Auck­land Trans­port in­stalled and no one wanted. Although AT ad­mits it’s not pol­icy to re­move cy­cle­ways, it’s look­ing at turn­ing that piece of road into some­thing use­able - a bus, T2 or T23 lane. I can hear your col­lec­tive ‘‘hal­lelu­jah’’ - judged on all the cor­re­spon­dence we re­ceived about the sto­ries we pro­duced on the sub­ject late last year. Looks like that is­sue could be trav­el­ling in the right di­rec­tion. And talk­ing of civic mat­ters, Ben Ross’ col­umn in Con­ver­sa­tions on p6 en­cour­ages us to take time to con­sider and com­ment on the Auck­land Coun­cil’s three ma­jor plans be­ing pub­licly con­sulted on now.
