So wrong and so unsafe

LETTER

I am a parent of a child who attends Makaraka School. We as carers and parents have been informed that we are no longer allowed to park by the church or use the driveway or land to pick up or drop off our children. This also involves the bus/van drivers.

The church owner is wanting money, or wanting the school to buy the church. This is so wrong and so unsafe for us all. There will be traffic jams and congestion before and after school.

This has been happening for years, and now the owner wants it to stop. Come on church owner, stop being difficult.

Concerned parent

Footnote response from Makaraka School Board of Trustees deputy chairman Phil Matthews:

The school board are working with the Ministry of Education on a solution to the current access issues that will allow safe access to the school in a timely manner.

    Do you think the speed limit on SH35 at Tamarau, Okitu and Wainui should be reduced to 50kmh, and the end of Okitu to the end of Tatapouri be reduced to 70kmh?​
