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.

Plain Packs Plan: Gordon Campbell On Tobacco Politicking (And The TPP Death Watch)

Has Act leader David Seymour got the easiest job in the world, or what? Roll out of bed, turn on the radio and hmm…there do seem to be a lot of problems out there in the world.

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.

Max Rashbrooke: A Failure Of Measurement: Inside The Budget Lock-Up

Shortly after the embargo lifted at 2pm news organisations started filing reports claiming that health, and to a lesser extent housing and education, were the ‘big winners’ out of the Budget. It failed to take into account the fact that in most cases the apparent increases were in fact cuts. Because of the twin effects of inflation and population. More>>

Max Rashbrooke On The 2016 Budget

The best label for this year’s announcement by Bill English might be the ‘Bare Minimum Budget’. It does the bare minimum to defuse potential political damage in a range of areas – homelessness and health are prime among them – but almost nothing to address the country’s most deep-rooted, systemic social problems. Indeed the Budget hints that these problems may get worse. More>>
