Lyttelton Tunnel party this Sunday morning, 31
August, 9.30 am to 12.30 pm
It isn’t everyday a
road tunnel authority tells people to grab a gold coin and
walk, cycle or skateboard through a two kilometre tunnel,
normally restricted to cars and trucks.
So here is your
chance – this Sunday morning. The Lyttelton Road Tunnel
party is to celebrate the tunnel’s 50 years resilient
existence, the opening of the new tunnel control building
and also SCIRT’s twin highway bridges over Horotane Valley
on the main road.
If you are able to remind
your listeners/ readers/ associates that the tunnel won’t
be available for driving through Sunday morning, that would
be very helpful.

Digital Evolution: Scoop Independent News Launches "Operation Chrysalis"
From today Scoop is beginning a process of public consultation with the political, business and civil society groups it has served for the past 15 and a half years.
"It is hoped that in time - with new leadership and increased community engagement - the chrysalis will incubate a new kind of Scoop, one which can sustainably continue Scoop's Mission 'to be an agent of positive change'", says Scoop Founder, Editor and Publisher Alastair Thompson.
"As big publishing shrivels, public participation in contributing and spreading news has grown. Scoop has evolved with this wave by providing an independent platform, committed to upholding democracy, providing a voice to all, and providing the public easy access to information about decisions which affect them."
