VTrans warns of safety concerns: Post-Irene ‘Tremors’

first_imgVermont Agency of Transportation Secretary Brian Searles today reminded the public that “tremors” from Tropical Storm Irene in the form of sink holes and slope failures continue to occur across the state, especially in the southern tier. Recent rains continue to soften the state’s soil, intensifying the probability of such tremors. These dangers can occur on roads that previously experienced no damage. Travelers need to be on the lookout and drive with care. “We appreciate there are some long detours to take in light of roadway closures,” Searles said. “Trying to make the longer commute shorter by driving aggressively may cost you your life. Everyone’s focus needs to be on safety.” As for road recovery efforts, a temporary bridge along Route 125 in Hancock will be open for public travel by the end of the day. This temporary bridge restores critical two-way traffic along Route 125 between Hancock and Middlebury, which was severed over the weekend when a bridge was closed. Additional forces arrived as 149 crews from the Maine Department of Transportation landed in Vermont at about 4 p.m. with 145 pieces of heavy equipment including 10 road graders, seven large excavators, and dozens of back loaders and dump trucks. The Maine crews will be deployed on Wednesday to several locations including Route 131 in Cavendish where they will replace culverts, clear debris and repair shoulder washouts. Maine crews also will be dispatched to Route 100 in Jamaica and Wardsboro where two teams will reestablish ditching and repair shoulder damage. Other crews will conduct a variety of tasks along routes 100, 30, 11, and 10. Also, 10 New Hampshire crews with trucks arrived delivering 150 Jersey barriers to help cordon off dangerous roadway sections. The New Hampshire crews on Wednesday will also help repair segments of Route 131 and Route 106.last_img read more

first_imgKiwi parents gave $1 billion in ‘voluntary donations’ to schools since turn of the centuryOneNewsNow 21 January 2016Figures released to ONE News show New Zealand schools received $70 million in donations during 2014, with the total over the past 15 years at $950 million.“Schools are really caught between a rock and a hard place,” Labour Party education spokesman Chris Hipkins said.“Government funding is simply not keeping up, if they’re not getting the money from government they have to get it from somewhere else so they’re resorting to asking parents to pay more and more of the cost of their kids’ education.”The New Zealand taxpayer contributes $100 to schools for every $1.80 donated privately.Education Minister Hekia Parata also says the Government plans to spend $11 billion on early childhood, primary, and secondary education this year.https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/kiwi-parents-gave-1-billion-in-voluntary-donations-to-schools-since-turn-of-the-centuryKeep up with family issues in NZ.
