MURKY WA­TER

Western Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Sun­day morn­ing is not a good time to wash your whites, Water­care says. Trans­mis­sion man­ager Sharon Danks said the drink­ing wa­ter out west might be murky this week­end as main­te­nance was car­ried out on a pump sta­tion near Tri­an­gle Road in Massey on June 24, from 10pm. The work might dis­colour the wa­ter un­til June 25, 11am, but it would still be safe to drink. Min­eral de­posits, most com­monly man­ganese, could be dis­lodged when the flow di­rec­tion and speed changed in the pipes. Sub­urbs af­fected in­clude: Glen Eden, Massey, West Har­bour, Green­hithe, When­u­a­pai, Hob­sonville, Sun­ny­vale, Hen­der­son, Herald Is­land and Te Atatu. Danks said the work was be­ing car­ried out when peo­ple were asleep for min­i­mal dis­rup­tion.

WEST RUGBY FANZONE

Watch the Lions game at The Trusts Arena for free on June 24. A free West Rugby Fanzone was planned with a big screen, en­ter­tain­ment and ac­tiv­i­ties, Auck­land Tourism, Events and Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment said. The fan zone would also have food and drink for sale, and was to open at 6.10pm.

GET­TING TO THE GAME

Pub­lic trans­port is the best way to get to Eden Park on June 24, Auck­land Trans­port says. Tens of thou­sands of peo­ple will flood the area to watch the Bri­tish and Ir­ish Lions play the All Blacks, with gates open­ing at 4.30pm. Ticket hold­ers to the game can ride the train for free. There will be a fan trail from the wa­ter­front down­town to the sta­dium. Some roads will be closed around Eden Park.

CY­CLIST HITS PEDES­TRIAN

A pedes­trian was struck by a cy­clist in Avon­dale on June 20. Po­lice were called to the in­ter­sec­tion of Rose­bank Rd and Ash St at 8.42am. Se­nior Sergeant Daniel Meade said the pa­tient was taken to Auck­land City Hospi­tal with mod­er­ate in­juries.
