    Mt Maunganui (invisible "h") have apparently hit on a most effective money spinner.
    Only problem is, where do other councils' treasurers, school committee safety zealots, and lawyers park while they seek the secrets behind this piece of tomfoolery? (At least we know where the Island Bay Cycleway planners are hatching their plots now.)

    As a bonus look at the picture and note where the pedestrian crossing is.

    Right on the corner so if a bus has to stop for pedestrians it blocks the road it is turning from.

    Dahhh, back to printing money.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    Funny they never seem to think to ask if the public actually *want* these things, before wasting the money on it.

    speaking of councils not doing their job...

    A friends 10year old house, has to be demolished as it was so badly built. Now starting to fall apart

    Numerous things didnt meet building regs , yet council inspectors ticked it off.
    So , ak council building inspecters didnt bother looking for obsvious issues.

    He, and his neighbors (same builder same issues) are suing the council .
    So thats my rates paying to fix these houses

    These houses are only 10 years old. Need to be demolished .
    how is this still happening. councils learnt nothing from leaky home saga
    how is this builder still allowed to build ?
