FOR ALL AGES 2014/2015 Rail idea on track A LIGHT rail loop between Manu- kau, Botany and Panmure is not a new idea as Auckland Mayor Len Brown suggests. That’s what the wide centre medium strip was put there for orig- inally when Te Irirangi Drive was designed by the former Manukau City Council. It would make far more sense to give this rail service priority over the inner city rail loop. It would actually take cars off the road and allow com- muters in the Howick and Botany areas to be able to access the main electrified rail corridor. In my opinion the inner city rail loop will not remove one car from our gridlocked motorways, although I will agree it may make travel around the inner city a lot easier and quicker. And the real big advantage in the east-west light rail link is that it would cost far less than the pro- posed inner city underground rail loop, and actually have some imme- diate benefits on reducing council borrowing and rates increases. Bob Wichman, Howick Local Board (Botany) Grog-free areas THE Government is trying to get us to cut down on our binge drinking, as alcohol consumption has become a more than serious problem. We used to have 6pm closing, I remember it well. We then had 10pm closing and I found that much more pleasant and relaxing. Today, you can get alcohol over many hours of the day if you really want to. The problem is, no matter what time the pubs close, they always send intoxicated and semi-intoxi- cated people out into the streets. There are often problems and problem-people let loose, usually out into the night. One way we had of curbing drinking in public areas and parks was to ban alcohol, and it certainly seemed to work. Now I see some authority is looking to withdraw liquor bans in places around here. I wonder on the sensibility of doing that, and just why they are doing it. That ban on public area drinking was a great step forward in posi- tive thinking. It’s a retrograde step to free up public area drinking just to allow those idiots to just carry on drinking, regardless of the consequences. Whoever is responsible needs being put into stocks in a public place. The bans on public area drinking need to be extended even further if we are to ever cut down on our binge drinking. Reading Marianne Kelly’s article, ‘Booze sale rules unveiled’ (Times, June 11), it says trading hours can be from 9am to 3am. Is it any wonder that we have a booze problem and culture, as we have this “have booze, must drink it” scenario. Then there is that situation where you go to some drinking place and get shouted a drink, and then you get involved with a school of drinkers, all wanting you to be like them. Barry Southon, Burswood Shocked at death THE killing last week of the dairy owner Arun Kumar in Henderson, maybe just for a small amount of cash, is shocking. We are experiencing a rise in vio- lence and unfortunately the Gov- ernment is not responsive enough. Small businesses need security and such incidents need urgent attention. The Kiwi Indian community will mobilise support for more appro- priate government action. It’s another extremely important action item for the Kiwi Indian Conclave on June 28. Veer Khar, Indian Association (Manukau) president Commemorative seating to mark the first 10 years of bush restoration in the Mangemangeroa Valley has been donated by the Rotary Club of Howick. An eight-seat-and-table combination, installed by Auckland Council contractors, is placed at the bottom of Hayley Lane, East Tamaki Heights. With 270-degree bush and valley views, the seating is a good spot to rest before walking further or back up the track to the Hayley Lane car park.
