Who’s threatening who here?

Posted by SCe Comments Off on Who’s threatening who here?

This curious sign in Beach Valley Road (just above the Razza) is designed to warn people that just up the road is a low-hanging pohutukawa branch. Of course it has been at Piha an awfully long time and is successfully driven under or around by rubbish trucks, fire engines and other taller-than-normal vehicles.

But apparently it is breaking the height rule, and Auckland Transport, which seems to either have too big a budget or be intent on domesticating Piha, was planning to give it the chop. This would have had a serious effect on the pohutukawa canopy in Beach Valley Road.

Fortunately, after a discussion with Parks, it was agreed the branch could stay, but the quid pro quo was this sign.
