The Auckland Council has shut part of the Mangemangeroa Walk- way to assess the threat of a slip and ensure pub- lic safety. Heavy rainfall and storm damage in late January contributed to the area of the Howick walkway between the Three Sisters and Pohutukawa Ave en- trances becoming un- stable. It's closed until further notice and is clearly signposted. Auckland Council local and sports parks manager Mark Bowater says the area was due to be inspected by a geo- technical engineer last week. Call 301-0101 for more information on the walkway closure or to report other storm damage to parks, coastal areas or infrastructure in your area. GPS donations saves time and lives Road wise: Marc Armstrong adjusts one of the GPS systems installed in ambulances thanks to the Freemasons. Photo: NICOLA WILLIAMS By NICOLA WILLIAMS A few seconds could make the difference between life and death. So GPS systems that work out the fastest routes are a much welcome tool for St John ambulance officers. Ambulances nationwide are being fitted with GPS navigation units thanks to the generosity of the Freemasons. Two ambulances have been fitted at Howick and one at Botany station. St John acting operations team manager Marc Arm- strong says the navigation devices will complement the information communications centre staff provide ambu- lance officers to find the quickest route to callouts. They will help officers with up-to-the-minute route maps and directions. We are grateful for the Navman units as every sec- ond counts when getting to an emergency,'' he says. District grand master of Auckland East Freemasons Mike Abercrombie says the Freemasons are delighted to be able to help New Zealand- ers and proud to support St John''. Across New Zealand 500 ambulances and 100 support vehicles will be fitted with the navigation units.
