Coming after all?
Housing stock in upmarket Omaha looked set to diversify with a Ministry of Homes and Housing Development sign on Takatu Road advising 150 affordable kiwi build homes were on their way. Before Omaha residents had time to digest the prospect, it emerged that the sign was an April Fool’s Day hoax. Nevertheless, now the concept has been floated, Mahurangi Matters understands the Ministry is rather taken with the idea. Maybe next year.
Residents on their morning commute from Matakana to Warkworth might have noticed the pace pick up during March when 100km/h speed limit signs appeared. Road workers accidentally increased the speed limit from 80km/h by putting out the wrong sign. Perhaps for the first time ever, road works actually reduced delays.
