Aerial operation to wipe out pest postponed for tomorrow (Tuesday, 12 November 2002)
Due to forecasted unfavourable weather conditions over the painted apple moth eradication zone, aerial operations planned for tomorrow (Tuesday, 12 November 2002) have been postponed.
The approximately 8,000 hectare aerial zone includes the following suburbs: Te Atatu South, Massey West, Ranui, Henderson North, Western Heights, Palm Heights, McLaren Park, Oratia, Glen Eden West, Glen Eden, Sunnyvale, Henderson, Henderson North, Lincoln, Glendene, Kelston, Harbour View, Avondale, Waterview; parts of New Lynn, Mt Albert, Point Chevalier and Blockhouse Bay. Traherne Island and the north western motorway between Lincoln Road and Waterview ramps are also included. About 40,000 properties are in the zone.
In response to feedback from the western Auckland community, there will be some adjustments to the conduct of aerial operations. These changes will see the painted apple moth eradication team aiming to refuel and reload aircraft between 8am and 9am; 12:15pm and 1pm; and 3pm and 4pm.
