Save the 29 trees lining Ladies Mile Highway, Queenstown, NZ

Please sign this petition to save the 29 trees lining Ladies Mile Highway in Queenstown from being cut down. The Delta Power Company says they need to be cut down as they are growing in to overhead powerlines.  Surely there is a better solution to this such as moving the lines or putting them underground. The trees create one of the most elegant approaches to any town in New Zealand. Click to read the news article:  http://www.odt.co.nz/source/mountain-scene/372038/cutting-trees-would-be-crass-

Install bollards outside all shops with perpendicular car parks!

Recently I was involved in an accident where my daughter and I were hit by a car while we were inside a shop.  If there had of been bollards in front of the car parks, which are perpendicular to the shop, we would not have been hit and our lives would not have turned upside down!  It has come to my attention that accidents like this are happening more often than we realise.  Often no-one is seriously injured (thank goodness), but let's not wait until someone is killed to do something to prevent

Say NO to removal of right turn from N.North Rd to Mt Albert Rd.

In addition to the mt albert town Centre upgrade which includes the removal of valuable car spaces and lane reductions, it has been brought to my attention that in the new plans there will also be the removal of the right turn from New North Rd onto Mt Albert road. As they are also removing the slip lane with the free left turn from new north rd onto mt albert Rd this will heavily increase traffic from Avondale city bound. In addition the removal of the right turning lane will encourage illegal

Let's remove the T2 Lane between 4-6 pm on Akoranga Drive - from 'The Warehouse Way intersection traffic lights' to the 'College Street traffic lights' (North Bridge Hospital side) and  leave it as a two laned road.   At present it is a T2 Lane, a lane which is meant to improve travel efficiency between 4-6 pm for transit vehicles. (Buses, Taxis and other vehicles carrying multiple occupants.) I don’t doubt that the majority of T2 lanes help to do this, but at this time of day there are more peo
