Around the Motu: Chris Hyde in Hawkes Bay

From Nine To Noon, 10:45 am on 22 January 2024

The death of Canadian tourist after a crash near Hastings late last year has left her surviving passenger questioning highway maintenance and Waka Kotahi is investigating.

The public outcry is ongoing after Foodstuffs announced it will be closing the New World in Flaxmere, leaving a community of more than 10,000 people without a supermarket. And Chris talks about the plan for a major shake-up to Hawke's Bay Regional Council's rating system.

The Flaxmere New World is set to close in February.
