Shake out day – Massey get ready

NZ SHAKE OUT   –    http://www.shakeout.govt.nz   (direct people to this web site to register)

Everyone, everywhere should know the right action to take before, during and after an earthquake. All of New Zealand is prone to earthquakes. You could be anywhere when an earthquake strikes – at home, at work, at school, or on holiday.

New Zealand ShakeOut has been created to help people and organisations get better prepared for major earthquakes, and practise ‘Drop, Cover and Hold’ – the right action to take during an earthquake.

New Zealand ShakeOut also provides a fantastic opportunity for businesses, workplaces, and other organisations to examine and review their own emergency preparedness arrangements. Families and households can also create, review and practise their household plans.

Better bus services

Massey residents will be among west Aucklanders benefiting from a plan to improve bus services that is being investigated by Auckland Transport and the New Zealand Transport Authority.

At a recent ‘meet the road builders’ open day to mark the upgrade if the Lincoln Road motorway interchange NZTA officials said discussions were bring held to create a bus interchange on government land in Triangle Rd that will accept feeder services

NZTA opening Auckland’s Lincoln Road work site for community

West Aucklanders had an opportunity for a first-hand look at progress on Auckland’s Lincoln Road interchange at a NZ Transport Agency open day on Saturday, 24 November.

The interchange on the Northwestern Motorway (State Highway 16) is a key part of the Western Ring Route – the strategic alternative to SH1 identified by the Government as one of its Roads of National Significance.

“Thousands of people pass through the construction site every day, and we were opening up the door so that they could come in and take a look at what happens behind the barriers,” says the NZTA’s acting State Highways Manager for Auckland and Northland, Steve Mutton.

”This open day was our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the community for the support they’ve given us over the past couple of years. We also wanted people to come along and learn more about the development of the project and its role in the Western Ring Route motorway alternative around Auckland.”

The open day coincided with the start of construction on the third stage of the upgrade – the widening of the Henderson Creek Bridge, east of the interchange.

As work develops on the interchange, two neighbouring projects linked to the Western Ring Route are also underway.

Enabling works have started at the Waterview Connection project before construction of its twin tunnels starts next year, and the upgrade of the SH16 causeway to make it wider and higher will also start in the new year. Staff from both projects were present on the day to update the community.

“The Western Ring Route will have a huge impact on travel around Auckland,” Mr Mutton says. “When it is completed, this 48 kilometre-long motorway will provide much better connections between Manukau in the south,Auckland International Airport, Waitakere and the North Shore, and ease congestion on the Auckland Harbour Bridge and the CBD.”

Work at Lincoln Road began in 2010. A new Selwood Road Bridge has been completed, but will not be fully open to traffic until the east-bound motorway on and off ramps are re-built. Mr Mutton says better access to and from the motorway will reduce queues, make travel more reliable and improve safety for drivers.

The motorway around the interchange is also being widened from two lanes to three in both directions. Dedicated bus shoulders along the motorway will improve public transport journeys to and from the city. There will also be better connections for walkers and cyclists between Lincoln Road and Selwood Road, as well as an extended Northwestern cycleway.

“We have a lot to show and tell people and we hope they take advantage of this opportunity to have look behind the scenes,” says Mr Mutton.

The open day is on Saturday, 24 November, between 9am and 2pm. Site access and parking will be available onSelwood Roadand will be well signposted.
