PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL UNIFORM IS NAMED ROYAL NZ AIR FORCE VISIT When the Royal New Zealand Air Force helicopter came to our school on Thursday 17 November for my seminar, I was overwhelmed. All my classmates hovered around me and hugged me. I went out and introduced myself, then we sat down and Flight Lieutenant Gareth Williams and his crew talked to us about their jobs. We then got to get in the helicopter. I got to sit in the pilot’s seat and wear one of their jackets! It was once-in-a- lifetime opportunity that we all really enjoyed – me the most! I organised the visit all by myself.

Between November and February significant work will be taking place and parts of the motorway will be closed at the Bombay Hills in the south as well as the Auckland Harbour Bridge, St Mary's Bay, Victoria Park and Newmarket Viaduct in the central city. Where possible, the NZTA has timed the full and partial closures at night, during the weekend or in the summer holidays when traffic is lightest. However, there will periods of severe disruption on some sections of the motorway. We need your support and patience to keep Auckland moving during the festive season. If you are planning to travel to an event, to do the Christmas shopping or heading away for the weekend, please check your route before you drive. Our digital channels will help people make the right travel choice, so wherever you are in the country you can stay informed.
