Traffic lights at the corner of Long Drive and St Heliers Bay Rd

Craig from St Heliers

A member of my family has been pulled over and ticketed for running a red light but actually they lawfully entered the intersection on Green (to turn right), and waited to give way to oncoming traffic. The lights were changing, or red, by the time they turned. This is all good highway code …View moreA member of my family has been pulled over and ticketed for running a red light but actually they lawfully entered the intersection on Green (to turn right), and waited to give way to oncoming traffic. The lights were changing, or red, by the time they turned. This is all good highway code practice. Just wondering if anyone has any CCTV of the intersection going back to the 4th May? Unlikely I know, but would enormously appreciate any help here. There are red light cameras at the intersection now, but I believe they were installed recently.

Will you be striking for better pay in Auckland?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Will you be taking to the streets in your community to strike for better pay? The nurses union has "strongly rejected" a DHB pay and conditions offer and is seeking urgent mediation. That means strikes scheduled for July could still go ahead.

Rosie from St Heliers

Sweet doll pram and cot with bedding. Good for a handy-person as the pram needs new rivets to secure 2 wheels and the cot could use some extra support for the bed base.

House Auction Sales

Team Member from Check Link - A One Stop Shop for Property Inspection
