Rose relocation: Roses will be harmed during the installation of new stormwater pipes through the Frimley Rose Gardens -- but the
Hastings District Council has promised that the excavated row will be replaced once construction finishes. Work on laying new pipes to
carry stormwater away from the new Lyndhurst subdivision in Frimley started this week, a council spokesman said. The council had
consulted with the Hastings Rose Society before digging through the gardens. Society spokeswoman Cheryl Lattey said the removed row
of roses would be replaced and a new pathway and rotunda-style pavilion constructed. Further plans for the garden were also under
consideration. ''A proposal . . . could see a sensory garden for people with a disability being placed down each side of the path,'' Mrs
Lattey said. The project was expected to take about four months.

Fibre art to be shown
A fibre art exhibition opens on Monday,
showcasing work by some of the 140 members
of Hawke s Bay Creative Fibre.
Co-ordinator Elaine Macgregor said the
two-week exhibition at the Community Arts
Centre in Russell St, Hastings, would not
only give the public and potential members a
chance to see what members had made, but
as a competition should give artists the con-
fidence to enter national events.
We wanted members to feel the thrill and
pride of seeing their work displayed in a gal-
lery setting, she said.
A rail line under threat of closure is dealing with
more demand than it can cope with.
KiwiRail is contemplating mothballing or per-
manently closing the Gisborne-Napier line, with a
decision due late this year, just as demand on the
In a briefing to the Hawke s Bay regional trans-
port committee in December, a KiwiRail executive
said the amount of freight on the line had
increased. Hawke s Bay manager Kim Salter said
four extra weekly services would start this month,
and a large potential customer had been turned
away because of a lack of equipment and crews.
A first load of squash was freighted to Napier on
January 9, and up to eight containers of squash
will be sent every second day until at least the end
of March. Until yesterday, the train was running
twice a week.
The line is under threat because of a lack of
freight and is believed to be running at a loss of
about $2.4 million a year.
Mr Salter said a Gisborne transport company
had recently become KiwiRail s retail provider
and had put additional business to rail, meaning
an extra four services a week would run on the
line over summer, boosting the total to six.
Commodities carried on the line have reduced
from 56,000 tonnes in 2004-05 to 23,600 in
2009-10. The line runs at a loss of about $2.4
million a year.
