Time to build: The Manawatu branch of Riding for the Disabled has been given $12,000 to build a hayshed on its property near Feilding. RDA is the main
recipient of the proceeds from last year's Tour de Manawatu Cycle Challenge; 2011 was the 12th year the Fitzherbert Lions Club, with support of other Lions
clubs in the district, has hosted the popular event. Each year a community group is chosen to be the main recipient of surplus funds. Fitzherbert Lions president
Phil Theobald, right, supported by club members and wives, is pictured presenting the money to RDA president Margaret Bowler and her husband David. Mr
Theobald, convenor of the 2011 Tour de Manawatu, said while Fitzherbert Lions was able to make the presentation, it was the generosity of largely local
businesses and community participation in the Tour de Manawatu, that made such a donation possible. The organising committee of Fitzherbert and Middle
Districts Lions has already started meeting to ensure the success of the 2012 event, on November 4.
Police strict on speed in Saddle Rd
The police's move to crack down on
speeding in Saddle Rd, heavily
used since State Highway 3
through the Manawatu Gorge was
closed by slips in August, has
pleased the New Zealand Trans-
Acting state highways manager
John Jones said NZTA is encour-
aged by the increase in police
enforcement as part of Operation
We're really concerned at the
recent spate of crashes, and we're
thrilled that police have responded
so quickly by dedicating resources
to enforce the speed restrictions to
ensure people are driving safely
and to the conditions,'' he said.
NZTA is worried that as
motorists get used to driving in
Saddle Rd, some complacency is
creeping in around the 70kmh
Saddle Rd is not built for high
speeds, and it's crucial people stick
to the posted speed limits, not just
for their own safety but for the
safety of others,'' he said.
Saddle Rd was designed for
much less traffic than it currently
has to cope with, and we appreciate
it's not an ideal situation. Our
crews are working around the clock
to carry out repairs and
improvements. Ideally we would
close it so it could be fully
upgraded, but that's not possible
because of the high volume of
traffic that needs the route while
the gorge road stays shut.''
Oversize vehicles are no longer
allowed in Saddle Rd from 7am till
9am and 4pm till 7pm Monday to
Friday. Oversize vehicles will be
able to use Pahiatua Track during
these hours, as it is wider than
Meanwhile at the Gorge, Higgins
crews are making steady progress
stabilising the hillside, and are now
well under way cutting the third
Our plan is to cut at least five
benches before assessing whether
or not to continue benching down to
road level, so it's great to be more
than halfway there,'' Mr Jones
Crews have been working long
hours six days a week, which was
increased to seven from yesterday.
Mr Jones says the edge of bench
No1 (the batter) was hydroseeded
with grass late last year, and it is
taking hold well.
Planting helps stabilise the
batter, so NZTA intends to hydro-
seed subsequent benches with moss
to trap seeds from adjacent plants
and encourage the regeneration of
It was not summer weather, but when the rain came to the Foxton Summer Concert on Sunday most people
stayed. The stage was the back of a covered truck -- the only shelter at FoxPine AirPark -- and the audience
used whatever they could to keep dry, including tarpaulins, chairs, raincoats, umbrellas or the trees.
Whatever the weather: Seeking shelter from the rain while smiling are, from
left, Karen Easton from Brisbane and Wendy Eades and Grace Suisted, both
from Palmerston North. FoxPine AirPark is usually a live airstrip.
