Central city map for next week

Outside the Four Aves

Anzac Drive/ Bexley Road between Pages and Breezes Roads

This stretch of Anzac Drive/ Bexley Road is closed 7am to 7pm currently as a trial which may continue into April. Drivers of trucks will be escorted through the site, other drivers will be detoured. The reason for getting this work done now is to make the most of the dry weather so the road can be well sealed before winter.

Centaurus Road

Stop/Go traffic management in place so expect delays or take a different route.

Roading updates for the central city launch on CTV

Road users can now tune into CTV each day for regular updates on roadworks, changes in traffic management, tips for clear routes and possible delays.

A new update will play each day, Monday to Friday, on the First At Five news bulletin. The 60 second update is repeated regularly (5pm, 6.30pm, 9.30pm, 7am, 8am, 9am and noon). The initiative is part of the Christchurch Transport Operation Centre’s (CTOC’s) aim to provide road users with more information to assist them to plan their journeys, minimise delays and reduce frustration on the roads. SCIRT transport planners and SCIRT delivery teams are working with the CTOC people on this project.

Novopayout: Government-Owned Company To Take Over School Payroll

After lengthy negotiations, the Ministry of Education and the existing school payroll provider, Talent2, have settled both on the amounts payable by Talent2 towards the costs of remediating the Novopay service and a new operating model for the school payroll system.

The new model involves a new government-owned company taking over the operation of the payroll service, and Talent2 licensing the core Alesco software to that company.

The settlement provides for Talent2 to pay the Ministry between $18 million and $22 million, made up of $7 million in cash and other considerations including a license for the Alesco software and discounted fees for the support and maintenance of this software. More>>
