Kia ora Greenhithe
It is great to see everyone working on clean-up efforts, while others will look forward to getting out and about around Tāmaki Makaurau. Whatever you are doing, we have some advice for you and anyone who visits Auckland to enjoy this weekend safely.
All beaches in Auckland are black-pinned due to waste contamination and debris so please remain out of the water and exercise caution if you are near a beach this weekend. There may be hazards in and around the water that may pose a risk. A good idea is to check www.Safeswim.org.nz for all your up-to-date information.
Parks and Recreation
All Aucklanders are encouraged to exercise caution when visiting local parks and sports fields, as they have been affected by the flood. For your safety, Aucklanders should not play in floodwaters as this water could be contaminated. To learn more, click this link: https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/…/sports-field…
Travel across Auckland
If you’re heading out this Waitangi weekend, we urge you to travel with care, as 29 roads remain closed and disruptions to Public Transport services continue.
People are advised to allow extra time for travel and check https://at.govt.nz/weatherwatch to see how their journey might be impacted.
15 different sites will be open to accepting any of your storm-related debris. Check this website to find the closest to you: https://www.makethemostofwaste.co.nz/…/auckland-waste…
