And one with a disabled daughter says she will now have to sell up. Wanda Waites, who lives on the corner of Lodestar and Corsair Dr said “the trucks are driving me mad.” They wake her daughter Tara up at 5am every day of the week. Lady Wigram Retirement Village residents are also campaigning to stop the trucks, saying they get woken up at 4.30am. Ms Waites said she plans to sell up and move to somewhere quieter. She wants Halswell Ward city councillor Anne Galloway and Wigram MP Megan Woods to be more proactive in stopping the trucks. Cr Galloway and Dr Woods will meet this Friday to discuss the issue. Dr Woods said yesterday the trucks are a real problem and it is a horrible situation for Ms Waites. The city council is due to bring in the citywide Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 by the end of the year which will allow restrictions to be placed on streets. •Turn to page 10 ANGRY: Wigram residents are upset over large trucks driving them out.
