Open streets

Katikati Advertiser - - Your Community Voice -

Con­cern­ing the “no” once again on the by­pass, let’s have an Open Streets, just like Auck­land with their Queen St.

Don’t ask the NZTA, they will only say af­ter many meetings “not for Katikati”, so let’s just do it any way. It will take them a few months to fig­ure out what’s go­ing on, so I think we should just do it. They think that Katikati peo­ple are too nice and will ac­cept what­ever they say, with a big “Yes sir!”

So, let’s be more like the French pro­test­ers, and start show­ing some venom. From Beach Rd to Mar­shall Rd ev­ery Fri­day night, till the NZTA wake up and get an­gry, when they will find we are too. PHIL CHRISTOPHERSEN

Katikati giv­ing away ba­sic rights of employees. We prob­a­bly all know some­one who is slog­ging away be­ing un­der­paid for what they do, or miss­ing out on their le­gal rights around hol­i­day pay or other en­ti­tle­ments. I my­self see it all the time. Stop with the scare­mon­ger­ing of “the bad old days”, be­cause for a lot of work­ers those bad days are hap­pen­ing right now.

I’m as dis­ap­pointed as any­one about the de­ci­sions around our high­way and our by­pass, but please minister don’t try and turn this bad news into per­sonal or party gain. MARK AN­DER­SON
