The name of a new road in an 18-lot subdivision at Dawson Road, Snells Beach, will recognise the developer. The Rodney Local Board Transport, Infrastructure and Environment Committee has approved a request that the road be named Kia Kaha Drive. Ken Lim, who was the director of the company that started the development, died two years ago. His wife, who is continuing the development, wanted to honour her husband with the naming of the road. The Board was told that she chose Kia Kaha because the phrase means ‘be strong’ but Kia was also Maori for Ken.
