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.
