A trial starting in Auckland this week for a new radio service, is designed to give motorists better travel information while they’re on the move.
A short-range radio service, called 102.2 OnRouteFM, is being trialed in one of the busiest sections of Auckland’s transport network. The broadcast area covers the Southern Motorway from Takanini to Mt Wellington, State Highway 20, 20B and 20A, as well as arterial roads in south and east Auckland.
The trial, starting today, 6 March, will run for six months and is a joint initiative from the NZ Transport Agency and Auckland Transport.
It will also broadcast messages from NZ Police and Auckland Civil Defence and Emergency Management.
Pre-recorded messages can be heard 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Live updates on incidents affecting the transport network will be available during peak commuter times of 6am to 7pm, Monday to Friday.
The information broadcast will include updates on crashes and other incidents along with relevant civil defence emergency or warning messages, advisories about current and future roadworks plus public events that might affect people’s travel plans, along with some public transport information and messages focused on driver behaviour.
To use 102.2 OnRoute FM it is recommended people who regularly drive in the trial area pre-set 102.2FM as an option in their vehicle’s radio before they start a journey. This way it’s easily accessible if they want to listen while on the move in the broadcast zone.

Showing independence is a big developmental stage in a toddler’s life. Attempting to dress themselves can be a challenging time. Shoes can be tricky because there is a left and a right. Cut a sticker in half and place each half on the inside of the shoes. When placed together the stickers form a picture letting your toddler know which shoe goes on which foot.
If the sparks aren’t flying anymore, don’t feel pressured to stay in the relationship for their sake. In the wise words of Katy Perry “Baby you’re a firework”, you can find those sparks somewhere else. Find more relationship advice here http://bit.ly/2fhNvwU

WATCH NOW - Tributes flow for the head girl of Kaitaia College who touched the hearts of many during her battle with cancer. Yesterday Te Amohaere Rudolph passed away and today she was given a fitting farewell from her school.
Hey Guys, To everyone that's been asking (and I really appreciate the support) looks like I now won't be back until Super Rugby next year. Would have loved to get back out on the paddock this year but it's a bit too early and still some risk of buggering it. In the meantime will keep donning the 'HydrationTechnician' bib for the Turbo lads and I look forward to getting stuck into preseason with the Canes. I really appreciate all the messages & support , thanks a lot!!

At the end of every year we go out for dinner and assess the year, then forward plan what we want to achieve next year. We have been blown away with how well 2016 has gone for us and Augustine. It's been massive to say the least. In most part that is due to you guys, your support and loyalty to Augustine and our brands overwhelms us and we are so very appreciative. Also to our 70 stockings around NZ who continue to buy our brands, your support is essential and we are grateful to every one.
Not to mention our sensational 30 staff who rock our world everyday.
This year we started a new label, opened a new shop, produced nearly 1000 different styles and had immense growth.
Personally we shifted house, shifted suburbs, kids started school and we had a new baby. Phew.
The plans we have for 2017 are just as exciting. Beginning with a new office that can fit all our staff and I will no longer have to share an office with Nathan and work off a tressel table.
We have plans for way more styles with small amounts of each produced to ensure we stay fresh and unique. Plus adding more staff to our growing team. We have plans for a new label. Plans for new and exciting things are can't begin to mention.
All in all it's exciting. And we thank you for continuing to be on this journey with us.
As we continue to dress the nation in more colour, more sparkle and more shimmer. Please note my dress tonight is navy not black haha.
