Further delays are expected on central city roads from Monday 12 May. Christchurch drivers are advised to allow extra time for journeys and to plan their routes.
• Use the Four Aves for cross-town journeys - go around rather than through.
• Fitzgerald Ave is a reliable route for both north and southbound journeys.
• Consider Colombo St and Manchester St from Bealey Ave to access the Central City.

Mathesons/Ferry Rd intersection night works

Wilsons Rd update
• From Thursday 15 May two-way traffic will be restored from the Wilsons Rd/Centaurus Rd roundabout to Ramahana Rd. There will be a temporary roundabout in place.
• From Thursday 15 May, Wilson Rd will be one way heading towards the city between the Wilsons Rd roundabout and Koromiko St. This will be for approximately one week while wastewater repairs are carried out.

Centaurus Rd/Aynsley Terrace
• Aynsley Terrace is closed between Grange St and Centaurus Rd for road reconstruction and kerb and channel repairs until approximately mid-June. Residents will still have access to their properties.
• Road repairs continue at the intersection of Centaurus Rd and Aynsley Terrace heading west for about 150 metres. Stop/Go signs are in place.

Thanks
Thank you to everyone for being patient as SCIRT crews make progress city-wide, and to everyone who continues to go the extra mile to support their local businesses.

Gordon Campbell: On Last Night’s Debate, And The Collins Accusation

Debating is a peculiar discipline in that what you say is less important than how you’re saying it. Looking poised, being articulate and staying on topic generally wins the day – and on that score, Labour leader David Cunliffe won what turned out to be a bruising encounter with Prime Minister John Key last night on TVNZ.

Cunliffe marshalled his points better, kept Key off balance and – more often than not – was in control of the general tenor of the contest. Labour supporters would have been heartened, and given some belated reassurance that maybe the change of leadership last year had been the right decision. More>>
