Bell Block’s Airport Drive – Letter to the Editor

Friday 24/01/2014 Letter to the Editor – The Taranaki Daily News Newspaper

A recent correspondent’s letter drumming up support to improve the intersection at Bell Block’s airport access road was right on the button. With planned airport expansion to cater for a projected major increase in passenger numbers and the announcement of another new, large hotel complex, Bell Block’s airport traffic is obviously going to increase dramatically before too long. The intersection is already scary enough, even for those of us who are familiar with it. It is certainly not a place for increased numbers of travel- weary drivers, in many cases unfamiliar with our road rules and their vehicles. It should be made a condition of the airport expansion that either a fly-over or roundabout is installed. The accident statistics at the Waitomo Cave intersection and retrospective work now required are warning enough.

More teams Needed Urgently in Bell Block Touch Tournament

Here is the Update on the 2014 Bell Block Touch tournament, due to be held on Saturday 1st March 2014 at Hickford Park, Bell Block. They currently don’t have enough teams in the Open Mens and u16 to run these grades in the tournament with 1 team in the mens and 2 in the u16s. They would be still interested in proceeding with the open mixed if they can get at least another 4 team’s to register giving 10 teams. Unfortunately some the prize money will change with only the $2000 prize money for the winner to stay. So no 2nd or 3rd prize money. If they can’t get another 4 teams in by Monday 24th February 2014 then this will also be cancelled. Speak to your mates, and get a team in quick. Contact them on: 027 966 3582 or search on Facebook.com

Bell Block back-up has Powerco set

A $500,000 back-up facility – from which Powerco’s entire network can be controlled – has been built on a country road (Egmont Road) near Bell Block. Lessons learnt from the Christchurch earthquakes in 2010 and 2011 had prompted the electricity and gas distribution company to set up the emergency recovery centre. It will act as a back-up to Powerco’s Network Operations Centre on New Plymouth’s Junction Street in Welbourn. “We can operate the entire Powerco network from here,” the company’s network co-ordination team leader Andrew Wilson said. From a room at the facility that contained three computers, each with four large monitors, Mr Wilson demonstrated how the network’s sub-stations could be accessed from the facility and how the electricity supply could be switched on or off to accommodate repairs to lines. This meant not only Taranaki networks, but also those in the Coromandel, Bay of Plenty, Waikato, Manawatu and other areas in the North Island could be accessed from the facility. Mr Wilson said it took about 18 months of training for staff to be able to operate the system used and Powerco currently had 14 staff qualified to do the job. Powerco acting electricity operations manager Phil Marsh said the new centre was a replica of the company’s dispatch and control rooms. “Should the unforeseen occur and Junction St needs to be evacuated, we can power up the Bell Block site and carry on business as usual.” The centre was commissioned before Christmas 2013 and was fully finished and ready to go about three weeks ago. About 420,000 customers are connected to Powerco’s networks.

Bell Block’s Warren Bolton hit’s 50th Winner with Elvis, then 51st with Neena Rock

On the 2nd February 2014, Elvis is back on track. And he gave Bell Block’s Warren Bolton something to sing and dance about. The first starter’s win in the opening race on the Taranaki Racing Club’s seven-race card gave Bolton his 50th win as an owner-trainer on the New Plymouth track. “Very special, absolutely. To get my 50th and now 51st Winner (Neena Rock) (Saturday 15th February,2014) on my home track makes it even more special,” he said after the Road to Rock-Impulsive Rhythm gelding had come from last in the straight to win the $10,000 Forman Commercial Interiors 2-y-o Maiden 1100m. Bolton, who has been training horses for nearly 20 years and shares in the partnership of Elvis and Neena Rock with his wife Claire, said he could clearly remember his first winner. “Trimophe in 1998. It was at Feilding, then they closed the track. Trimophe went on to finish fourth in the Brisbane Cup … a handy little horse.” Bolton said he had owned and trained a few nice horses over the years. “The biggest win I had was with Victoire in the Group 3 Fayette Park Stud for fillies and mares at Hawera. She won four or five races for me. Zeta Black was another, she won the Canterbury Breeders’ Stakes.

Bell Block Residents to celebrate St Valentine’s Day

Friday the 14th February is St Valentine’s Day. February 14th is the day when lovers around the world declare their feelings for each other with gifts and flowers. Far from being a recent, American tradition it originally began life as a celebration of the life of one of the early Christian saints and various legends grew up around St Valentine. During the Middle Ages, Chaucer’s time, February 14th became associated with romantic love and today it is associated with Valentine cards, flowers, gifts and even engagements. It is still a feast day in the Anglican Church. These days the advertising and materialism that surround the day tends to detract from the original intention. It is easy to dismiss the whole idea rather than spend money you can’t afford on gifts that are not necessary, but that destroys the romance, surely?….enjoy the day, it is only here once a year.

Canadian Man Named who Died Near Bell Block

Bell Block Police have released the name of the man who died in a crash near Bell Block this morning, Thursday 13th February 2014. He was Bruce Atkin, 63, a Canadian living just near bell Block. Emergency services were called to the intersection of Egmont Rd and Bishop Rd about 7:20am where a heavy truck, car and motorcyle had crashed. Mr Atkin was the driver of the car and he died at the scene. Sergeant George White of the New Plymouth Traffic Safety Group said it appeared the car had pulled out of Bishop Rd in front of the truck. The truck attempted to stop but was too close and jackknifed, colliding with the car, he said. The motorcyclist was travelling down Egmont Rd and lay his bike down and skidded on the road before crashing into the grass verge to avoid the crash. The road was blocked and south-bound traffic was being diverted to Katere Rd and north-bound to Dorset Rd but the road is now clear and has reopened. The Serious Crash Unit from Palmerston North is attending.
