Photo: JIMMY NESS Work nearly done By JIMMY NESS It has been a long road, but drivers can breathe a sigh of relief as work on the infamous Muldoon s Corner is close to completion. A new cutting allows traffic to bypass the corner, known as one of the tightest and most difficult bends on Rimutaka Hill Road. Nearly 205,000 cubic metres of rock and soil were cut from the hillside as part of the $16.5 million safety project. NZ Transport Agency state highway manager Rod James said the corner was the main part of the work. You will see it [Rimu- taka Hill Road] progress- ively improve over the year, he said. Traffic was already run- ning over some of the new road. From Monday, it was also running through the old Muldoon s Corner, he said, which is a tremendous milestone . Mr James said work was running on time and on budget. The Rimutaka Hill Road is a challenging but crucial lifeline between Wellington and the Wairarapa, and these improvements will help ease a number of sharp corners and improve visibility to provide safer journeys for motorists, he said. Our contractors have done a superb job working in difficult conditions, and they deserve a big pat on the back for making such great progress on this important safety project. Traffic signals and width restrictions on heavy vehicles will be in place until a second lane is formed through the corner. It is expected that two lanes will be open and width restrictions lifted this Saturday, weather permit- ting. The project is due to be completed in 2012. Arrests in Wiffen case By JIMMY NESS Two men have been charged with the aggravated robbery of Silverstream couple Malcolm and Yvonne Wiffen, fol- lowing a police raid in Wainuiomata last Friday. The suburb was locked down as the armed offenders squad and a helicopter searched for three suspects. Jeremy Gorinski, 32, and another man, who has name suppression, were arrested after a chase involving two cars. Gorinski was wanted by police for allegedly breaking into 15 different homes across the North Island. The pair were charged with robbing the Wiffens of $50,000 in their Upper Hutt home on June 19. The semi-retired couple, who own a commercial cleaning business, were threatened at gunpoint. Their heads were covered and their bodies bound as the offenders searched the prop- erty for valuables. A third man, 31, was also arrested dur- ing the Wainuiomata raid. Police used battering rams to enter a family home and he was found hiding in the roof. Police do not believe he was the third intruder who robbed the Wiffens home and his charges relate to different robberies. Detective Senior Sergeant Paul Borrell says they are still looking for others involved in the crime. The trio was remanded in custody until June 30. If you have information contact Upper Hutt police on 527 2300 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
