Road works


Last time we visited Auckland City we were astounded to see so many major roadworks going on throughout the streets. There seems to be some huge reorganising going on and many businesses apparently are suffering due to the customers not being able to walk in. Unfortunately progress causes the downfall of many people as does lockdown. I feel for them especially since the rest of New Zealand is now down to level 2 but Auckland is still in level 4 due to them having the most positive cases.

I hope the restoration helps the shops and you get to be able to go out and shop again very soon. A lot of businesses closed down here during our long lockdowns but the tourist season here was one of the best this summer. Hopefully we will all able to slowly get back to our old lives again soon

Construction continues unabated.

I think everyone is suffering from "progress". Combining that with COVID restrictions really makes for tough times.

Same here.

Greetings and Salutations! Spring, Summer and Fall means road work here in the U.S.A. Detour signs are everywhere. We need to allow at least 15 minutes more to get where we want to go to be on time or not. Never know what is ahead. Illinois residents are wearing masks. Wisconsin residents in rural areas are not wearing masks. Appears to be variant is helter skelter. Future?

It seems to be happening everywhere.

What will be after level 4????
Here roadworks drive us nuts! They have them all over, instead of starting and finishing one project after the other.

Road construction is a real problem here. I can't drive anywhere without running into some kind of road problems.
