A woman expressed concerns to police in Featherston on Thursday after she told officers she found a piece of meat in her yard and was worried it had been poisoned. A police spokesperson said the person had not taken the meat to be tested, so police were unable to substantiate the report. “Police have not received any other similar reports from people in the area” the spokesperson said. “The report has been filed pending receipt of any new information.”

Police callouts

Police received a report of a man and woman arguing in the street at 3.25pm on Thursday in Martinborough. Police were unable to locate the couple but confirmed it was a verbal argument with no physical assault. There was also a report of a truck rolling near the intersection of State Highway 53 in Morison Bush at 6.05pm on Thursday. It was described as blocking a lane on Wards Line. “An ambulance was not required for the driver and a tow truck was requested to move the truck,” a police spokesperson said.

Library closure

Carterton District Council [CDC] has advised that all library branches will be closed on Friday, June 28 for Matariki, and Saturday, June 29 for the upgrade of the Library Management System. During this time, there will be limited access to CDC’s digital resources, including Libby. The library catalogue and WLS app will be unavailable until maintenance is completed. Normal library hours will resume on Monday, July 1.

Rockfall work

The New Zealand Transport Agency [NZTA] will be doing rockfall protection work on SH2 Remutaka Hill on Monday at midday. During this time, road users can expect three separate five-minute traffic stops 20 minutes apart until 1pm, when work is expected to be completed. NZTA asks people to expect delays and factor that into travel plans. The next set of nighttime road closures on the hill are scheduled to take place on August 11 and 12, and will mean the hill will be shut from 9pm-4am during those times. More nighttime closures will happen later in the year at the start of September, the middle of October, and the start of November.
