Have installed the new Default Local Delivery extension to help split shipping cost from One Flat rate Plus One Rural Delivery cost.
It works, so for every order has the flat rate shipping of $6.50 great.
then if a customer enters one of the Rural postcodes the shipping changes to $13.50.
However once the customer has checkout to the Delivery Information page, All shipping methods are avalible for the customer to select, so they can still choose the cheaper option rather than the correct option.(image below)
How can i make there only one shipping method (the correct one) or remove the shipping method option, but still charge the correct shipping amount?
Once the Rural Delivery is selected it overrides the flat rate shipping so the only shipping method option will be the correct one?
Every order gets flat rate of $6.50 except for the postcodes loaded (image below) they get shipping cost of $13.50.

People just dont seem to select the correct freight for there area.. costs more to email them and wait for the extra $4...
I was hoping that there was a way that when one shipping option is selected it would disable the others for that check out session only.

Is there a extension that has more than one condition ? ie two options., 
select
charge Rural if postcode on list, option 1
 else
charge flatrate, option 2

seems like it should be fairly straight forward?
Any ideas on the easiest way to implement this?
