Motorway build to begin

CONSTRUCTION ON

a $240m extension to the

Northern Motorway will begin

in October with the city council

and New Zealand Transport

Agency announcing who will

build it.

It will be built east of Belfast,

between the Waimakariri

River and Cranford St in a joint

venture between NZTA, city

council, Fulton Hogan, Aurecon

and Jacobs.

The alliance will also

construct a new road between

QE II Dr and Cranford St,

referred to as the Northern

Arterial Extension. It will also

upgrade Cranford St to four

lanes to Innes Rd.

The projects together

will form the Christchurch

Northern Corridor.

NZTA southern regional

director Jim Harland said the

new section of the Northern

Motorway is critical to

improving journey times for

commuters, many of whom

have rebuilt homes in North

Canterbury.

It is also vital for the

continued growth of

Christchurch as the South

Island’s main freight

distribution centre and export

hub.

Detailed design for the new

motorway is currently being

completed and construction

is expected to get underway

in mid to late October. It is

expected to take four years to

complete.

Mr Harland said the alliance

is a great example of central

and local government working

together to create a safe, reliable

transport network that meets

the needs of all road users,

including cyclists, pedestrians

and those using public

transport.

STARTING SOON:

Construction of a $240m

extension to the Northern

Motorway will begin in

October.

The Christchurch

Northern Corridor

includes:

•An upgrade of QEII Drive

to four lanes between

Main North Rd and Innes

Rd.

•Better access to the

growing industrial zone

area around Belfast.

•Construction of a third

northbound lane on

the Waimakariri Bridge

through to Tram Rd.

•A shared pedestrian/

cyclist path along the

length of the project.

•Improvements to the

public transport network

and efficiency on Main

North Rd.

this roading project solve

congestion problems for

motorists coming into the

city from the north? Share

In Brief

REPAIRS BEGIN

Residents of Grants Rd and Proctor

St in Papanui will have SCIRT crews

working in their area for about eight

weeks. They are replacing three

sections of an earthquake-damaged

wastewater main. Work has started

on Grants Rd with a trench being

dug to remove and replace a broken

pipe. Part of Grants Rd around the

worksite will be closed until the

work has been completed.

MOTOR-CYCLIST HURT

A man was taken to Christchurch

Hospital in a moderate condition

after he was knocked off his motorcycle

in Strowan last Tuesday. St

John sent an ambulance to the scene

on Heaton St at about 6.50pm. The

man, in his 50s, was assessed at

the scene and taken to hospital for

further treatment.

FUNDING SOUGHT

Papanui resident Angus McWilliam

has applied for $518 from the

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board’s discretionary response

fund to attend the junior Tall

Blacks training camp and under-23

nationals. Angus, 16, attends

One man and his 1000 dreams

• By Roy Sinclair

NEIL ANDREWS leads the

way down precarious steps to a

seemingly underground room.

He flicks on a light switch.

I am wowed by a high viaduct

spanning a realistic gorge. My

eyes are led to tall forests, tree

ferns galore and a painted backdrop

depicting a stormy sky.

“This is what I do,” he says.

“It is not what I do in my spare

time.

“I mow the lawns in my spare

time.”

The room was purpose-built

for the 9mm (scale 9mm to the

foot) layout representative of a

one-time railway in Northland.

In his garage he is working on

a second, portable, layout. This is

a narrow-gauge railway based on

French townscapes.

Model railways is an interest

he could not be without.

“When I met my partner,

Helen, I told her it is me and my

trains. They are inseparable.

“She accepted that which was

great.”

He describes railway modelling

“as a thousand dreams

held together by a hundred

unfinished jobs. In other words,

a degree of chaos.”

“Part of the fascination is

HAND-MADE: Model builder, Neil Andrews and his miniature creation of early last century

Northland. ​

delving into history to discover

how it all would have looked like

early last century,” Mr Andrews

said.

He always liked to do things

with his hands. He enjoyed art

at school – and building things.

Even when he had clockwork

railways he was always cutting

up cardboard boxes to make

buildings.

He recalls scoring designs on

pieces of wood to make boats.

Railways became another part

of it.

Getting into more serious railway

modelling during the late

1950s, there was not much stuff

available and if it was he didn’t

have the money.

If he wanted it he made it.

“My mother used to take me to

the railway station. I remember

being in my pushchair watching

the Lyttelton trains come and

go.

“Then at primary school I was

quite capable of making an Ecclass

electric locomotive with the

distinctive air compressor tanks

across the front. Everyone could

recognise it.”

Later, any new gadget at his

Canterbury University laboratory

would be first examined to

how it would be useful on the

model railway.

“Then we would work out how

it was intended to be used.”

His workplace became known

as “the model train laboratory.”

That’s what people who visited

talked about.

He travelled to model railroad

conventions in the United States,

becoming a member of the

R.G.S. East Hon3 club.

He visited huge model railway

shows in Cologne and Miniature

Wonderland in Hamburg.

“In Germany a model railway

is like a dishwasher. Everyone

has to have one. And most offerings

are German-made. They are

excellent.

“On one European trip Helen

and I were forced off the road by

Tour de France officials.

“We had to divert into a backwater

countryside.

BUILDING: A train layout under construction and a G-scale

layout at last year’s Christchurch Model Train Show.

“There we found towns of

beautiful buildings with terracotta

roofs. We had discovered

the romance of the French countryside.

“Anything French is different.

If you see a French car you know

it is French because it looks nothing

like anything else. It is the

same with railways.

“Their narrow gauge railways

were basically portable. They

could be picked up and laid

beside a road.

“That really intrigued me. Narrow

gauge secondary lines were

introduced to boost the network

of French railways.’’

The unplanned detour instigated

his French narrow gauge layout.

“One develops a modeller’s

mind.

“A modeller will typically think

how it would look in miniature?”

He talks about Hamburg’s

mind-boggling Miniature Wonderland.

“It’s absolutely intriguing. It’s

a huge collection that is pushing

the boundaries of technology and

inspiring manufacturers to pick

up on it with new products.”

“The model aircraft must

represent the peak of model

building.’’

“The model trains have been

running for so long the track is

wearing out.”

The closest we have in

Christchurch is the annual big

model train Show, this year being

held over the weekend of October

1 and 2.

The venue is Pioneer Stadium

in Lyttelton St, Spreydon. It is the

show’s 25th anniversary so promises

to be special.

Mr Andrews was an instigator

of the event, starting a model

train show at Hagley Community

College and then expanding to

the Horticultural Society hall.

Then, the Christchurch Model

Railway Exhibition Society was

formed and took over. Its growth

took it to Pioneer Stadium where

it has been ever since. At its peak

the show attracted 10,000 people

over the two days.

“It’s about its optimum size.

“Considering our modest

Christchurch population we do a

pretty good job,” he said.

This year’s show will help those

wanting to get into the hobby.

“We will have beginners’ train

sets and heaps of demonstrations.

Find out the best models to buy

and learn how to make things.

“Technology will be to the

fore. This is enhancing the hobby

and drawing younger people in.

They can operate a railway from

a PC or mobile phone, utilising

wi-fi and DCC (digital control

systems).”

He says model railway people

are an enthusiastic bunch. They

will do their utmost to share

what they know.

Andrews will be on the demonstrations

desk. It is likely he will

let slip how to disguise a lot of

money spent on the hobby within

the weekly household bills.

“I live here,

I work here,

I sell here’’

Cycle lane marked

• By Andrew King

A STRETCH of road in

Harewood that was causing

confusion has finally been

marked correctly by the city

council.

Where Gardiners Rd changes

from 50km/h to 80km/h a small

footpath was built to the left

of the traffic islands, however,

it was not clear what it was installed

for.

Some cyclists used the path to

avoid vehicles coming close to

them, while others just continued

on the road.

Now, it has been labelled as

a cycleway with marking to

indicate that, after the Shirley-

Papanui Community Board

requested the confusion be

cleared up.

Board deputy chairman

Aaron Keown questioned

why it took a request from

the community board for it to

happen.

“It is obvious that cyclists

should move to the left instead

of competing with trucks and

other vehicles on the road in

the narrow bit between the two

islands,” he said.

A city council spokeswoman

said it was not “designed as a

Let’s keep Chch fluoride-free

Former

personal

trainer John

Verd was

born in

Christchurch’s

sister city

Seattle,

United States, and

moved to New Zealand

in January last year. He

writes this week’s opinion

piece on fluoridation

I love Christchurch water!

It’s one of the many exceptional

things we’d heard about

the Garden City before moving

here.

So I was naturally concerned

to learn about proposed

changes to our water system.

I discovered at an early age

how location could affect

water quality.

When my grand-mother

moved to the Cascade Mountains

near Seattle, she said

that the tap water there had a

”sweetness” to it.

She was absolutely right -

there was a huge difference

between our aquifers in Spokane

and her spring water in

Snoqualmie.

It wasn’t until much later

that I paid any attention to

what is actually in our water.

I’d heard people protest

against fluoridation, but wrote

them off as paranoid conspiracy

theorists.

It wasn’t until becoming a

personal trainer that I actually

questioned the practice.

The research was eye opening.

Our water is being treated

with an industrial waste product

called hydrofluorosilicic

acid.

This chemical is a by-product

of the phosphate fertiliser

industry.

Although classified as hazardous

waste, it is barrelled up

and sold, unrefined, to communities

across the country.

This is the fluoride in public

water.

Former vice president and

senior chemist at the United

States Environmental Protection

Agency headquarters, Dr

William Hirzy, had this to say

about it:

“If this stuff gets out into

the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets

into the river, it’s a pollutant;

if it gets into the lake, it’s a

pollutant; but if it goes straight

into your drinking water system,

it’s not a pollutant. That’s

amazing.”

Hydrofluorosilicic acid is

far different from the sodium

fluoride, which is not for

ingestion, commonly used in

toothpaste.

This begs the question: Why

would they use this dangerous

form of fluoride? A likely

reason is cost.

Because it costs corporations

many thousands of dollars per

tonne to neutralise and dispose

of it, they instead sell it to

municipalities as a ‘product’.

Chemist and worldrenowned

fluoride researcher

Dr Paul Connett lectured in

Christchurch in July 2016.

He listed 50 human studies

NOR’WEST NEWS

finding that elevated fluoride

exposure is associated with

reduced IQ.

Christchurch has managed

to remain fluoride free for the

last 30 years, but new legislation

may allow for fluoridation

by 2018 unless the public

demands a place at the table in

this decision.

And that’s what is keeping

me up at night.

Do you, like John

Verd, stay awake at

night worried about

fluoridation? Should we

allow fluoridation of our

water? Share your views

with us. Email andrew.

NOR’WEST NEWS Tuesday August 16 2016 9

A reader responds

to an article on a

petition launched to

fix the Harewood Rd

intersection

Michael Stirling –

Harewood

I’ve lived in Harewood

since 2002, and can honestly

say without doubt this is one

of the worst intersections in

Christchurch, particularly

since the 2011 earthquakes

whereby traffic has virtually

doubled as more and more

businesses and home-owners

relocated to the west side of

the city. It is just like the Grim

Reaper advert on television a

few years back, where people

start sweating profusely at

the wheel before closing their

eyes and hope for a miracle

crossing. The problem is (both

ways) that drivers on Gardiners

Rd and Breens Rd have to

take calculated risks across

four lanes of Harewood Rd

(being two east-bound and

two west-bound). The number

of times I’ve experienced near

misses is well into the 30s. I’ve

been stopped in my tracks

many times as I head into

work, and have even given

up tooting now, as it’s utterly

pointless, you simply can’t

educate some people. Sure, I

can understand their frustrations

and lack of patience

(particularly after sitting idle

for 3-4min at the ‘stop’ signs)

and they end up virtually playing

Russian roulette, praying

they will cross safely without

getting hit. The simple solution

is traffic lights – just as the city

council installed at the other

end of Gardiners Rd – on the

Sawyers Arms Rd intersection,

which incidentally is only two

lanes wide and not four, so go

figure. In my view, it’s only a

matter of time before there is

a fatality (and I sincerely hope

it is not me or my family, or

anyone else for that matter).

So hopefully the city council

will come to their alert senses,

smell the coffee (or should that

be tar) before they end up with

blood on their hands.

FLAME FILES

Give yourself the best chance of escape

Conditions apply.

While stocks last.

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

BY RECENT standards

the past week has been

remarkably quiet.

We’ve still been to plenty of

false alarms, ambulance assistance

calls and car crashes but

fires, apart from the inevitable

kitchen cooking fires (two

this week), have been few in

number.

So let’s have a look at those

things that can make our lives

safer from fire that are easy to

arrange in any home.

Firstly, and by far most importantly,

is the use of smoke

alarms.

I grew up in the days before

widespread plastics and

foams. So when I was a kid

it took about 10min for any

fire inside a house to go from

ignition to flashover (the state

where the entire contents of a

room are on fire).

Now, with the proliferation

of oil-based products (those

plastics and foams) in homes

the time to flashover is reduced

to 3min.

That’s where smoke alarms,

recommended in every

bedroom, hallway and living

room, are vital to give us the

earliest possible warning of

fire so we can escape well

before that 3min is up.

Because if you don’t, you’re

probably in real trouble.

After your own escape,

making sure everyone else in

the house is aware, is the first

priority before having a meeting

place where all can be accounted

for, and phoning 111

by cellphone or neighbour’s

landline.

Along with smoke alarms

these are the basics of a home

escape plan.

If we all had one I’d investigate

far fewer fatal fires.

That would be fantastic!

SCIRT programme on the home straight

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is

almost complete and will finish in December.

Most of our repairs involve fixing the city’s underground pipe networks with only small

amount of our work focused on roads.

Our roading work largely involves fixing where we have dug down to repair and replace

the earthquake damaged pipes beneath. The result may look a little patchy but we repair

roads to a reliable and serviceable standard.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the

city's earthquake-damaged roads after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood

• Fixing the Northern Relief, one of Christchurch’s biggest wastewater pipes running

through Fendalton, Merivale and St Albans is more than halfway through and will be

completed at the end of the year.

• Essential wastewater repairs in Aikmans Road in Merivale have begun and will be

completed at the end of the year.

• Ongoing repairs to the wastewater networks in Fendalton, Strowan, Papanui and

Bryndwr are due to finish next month.

• Your support is helping us to get the job done, thank you from the SCIRT team.

New school bus routes

RANGI RURU Girls’ School has

announced a trial of a new Red

Bus services for students in

south-west Canterbury.

The initiative came from parents

who were having difficulties getting

their children to school using

existing routes.

Principal Sandra Hastie said the

school is very supportive of effective

public transport and having

students on a bus, using bus lanes

as well as other measures.

“There’s already too little time

and too much stress in many

lives, so if we can alleviate that for

parents and students that’s a good

thing,” she said.

The bus, which is identifiable

by a ‘Rangi Ruru school bus’ sign,

departs Burnham at 6.35am, with

five points from which students

can be picked up or get off at

Rolleston, Lincoln University,

Lincoln, Tai Tapu and Halswell.

The bus arrives at the school by

8.10am and returns at 4pm for

pick up. It ends the day in Burnham

at 5.20pm.

Rangi Ruru business manager

Neil Templeton said Red Bus has

been very co-operative during the

development of the service trial.

“We are open to suggestions for

improvements during the trial

and are encouraging parents and

students to give us feedback.”

Fares are $7.50 return or $4 oneway

and students use their Cando

Card as they would for any metro

bus. The card can be topped up

with the driver.

Dr Hastie said the service was

also available to students from

other Christchurch schools and

parents should contact Rangi

Ruru to register their son or

daughter. She added that, all going

well, the intention was to continue

the service.

CBHS advance to rugby final

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH BOYS’

High School have advanced

to the grand final of the UC

Championship following a 10-3

win over Nelson College.

The team made amends for last

year’s shock 17-25 semi-final exit

to Shirley Boys’ High School.

They will play the team that

broke their hearts 12 months

ago in Saturday’s grand final at

Rugby Park. Shirley defeated

round-robin winners Christ’s

College 17-14 at Upper in the

other semi-final.

The teams also have recent

history, they met on August 7.

CBHS survived a late penalty

attempt from Shirley before a

try in extra time sealed a tough

19-13 victory.

“They proved in beating

Christ’s College that they’re going

to be a really serious threat.

They played very well against us

the other week so we’re going

to have to be at our very best

because they have some seriously

good players in that team,” said

CBHS coach Mike Drury.

The win over Nelson College

was played in trying conditions.

CBHS came out with intent,

dominating the early possession

and turning down penalty goal

attempts in search of the game’s

first try.

They were rewarded for their

efforts when Mosese Fifita

barged his way over the line with

10min to play in the first half.

First-five Alex Harford converted

and then extended the lead to 10

with a penalty conversion before

the break.

Nelson played with the wind in

the second period and narrowed

the margin to seven through a

William Havili penalty.

Christchurch executed an

outstanding game plan in the

second half, not letting the visitors

back into the game through

strategic kicking.

“I thought that second-five Ben

Chippendale played a very astute

game. He showed the quality of

a senior player on the team. He

racked off some pretty substantial

yards and put them on the

back foot a number of times,”

said Drury.

Meanwhile, in the plate section

of the competition it will be

Timaru Boys’ High School hosting

Marlborough Boys’ College

in Saturday’s final.

Timaru defeated defending

Plate champions Burnside High

School 25-15, while Marlborough

overpowered Waimea Combined

19-0.

Rower off to world champs

LAWyerS

• By Annabelle Dick

A CHRISTCHURCH Boys’

High School student is in

Rotterdam, Netherlands,

to compete in a world junior

rowing championship.

Jack Lopas, 17, of Little

River, is a part of the New

Zealand junior double sculls

team.

“Both my parents, uncles

and grandad rowed so I got

into it through them. My

grandad and dad took me

out on a single one day to

have a go and I really enjoyed

so it went from there,” Jack

said.

He started rowing at 14 and

moved from Lincoln High

School to Christchurch Boys

and joined the rowing squad

soon after.

There he teamed up with

fellow student Angus Foster to

create a title-winning duo.

“This year at club nationals

we won the under-19 double

sculls and at Maadi we won

the under-18 double. There we

were also a part of teams that

won the under-18 quad and

placed third in the under-18

eight,” Jack said.

He also won the under-18

single and was selected to trial

with the New Zealand junior

rowing squad.

During his trial, he

managed to beat Olympic

medallist Hamish Bond’s 2km

rowing machine record he set

DOUBLE TROUBLE: Angus Foster and Jack Lopas left for Europe last Friday to compete

in the 2016 World Rowing Junior Championship.

while trialling for the New

Zealand squad.

“The record was 6.03

seconds and I got 5.57

seconds,” he said.

This is the second time he’s

made the junior team having

been selected last year, when

he and Angus only made it as

the reserve duo.

“It was an experience but we

were in as reserves. But this

year, we’re the top double so

it’s a chance to go out there

and do the best we can. We’ve

got good potential this year,”

Jack said.

He trains at least seven

times a week often peaking at

12 trainings a week.

His schedule consists of

lots of early mornings, gym

sessions, on-water trainings

and rowing machines.

“It’s very intense.”

Jack and Angus flew out last

Friday for the competition,

which takes place from August

21-28.

“It’s pretty exciting. It’s

been quite a long time coming

and we’re definitely ready for

this.”

SPORTS

WINNERS: Cotswold School’s boys and girls basketball teams

won their tournaments recently. Back row: Jack Hollingworth,

Carter Rhodes, Milla Downing, Francis Varga, Anna Scullion, Paige

Eder, Ariella Brown, Jonty Sincock and Liam Mytton. Front row:

Kaia Cameron, Jed Smith, Jade Cotter, Lauren Mountford and

Mitchell Corkery.

Success for Cotswold

TWO COTSWOLD School

basketball teams have qualified to

play other finalists in the CPSSA

sports competition.

In the North-West Zone Indoor

Basketball Tournament, the

Cotswold boys team had a comefrom-behind

win against Kaiapoi

North. The Cotswold girls team

could not be separated from

Paparoa Street School and had to

settle for a first place tie.

Cotswold’s Anna Scullion, 10,

said it was a little disappointing to

end the game tied.

“It was a gut-wrenching and

intense final,” she said.

Jack Hollingworth, 10, said they

had to give it their all on the court

to overcome Kaiapoi.

“We had to try our best because

Kaiapoi North gave us a good

final,” he said.

Mitchell Corkery, 11, said: “I

was looking forward to the tournament

but I was a bit nervous at

the same time.”

Cotswold not only tasted success

in the basketball, but also in

athletics.

Cotswold’s Oliver Floris, 10,

won the visually impaired 1km

cross-country race.

It was Oliver’s first time competing.

His brother, Cameron

Floris, of Casebrook Intermediate,

ran alongside him as his support

runner.

“I gave it my all, but I was out

of energy at the finish line. I felt

overjoyed that I came first,” Oliver

said.

A GROUNDSWELL of

support from the local

community has helped the

Shirley Hawks Rugby League

Club win a $10,000 cash

injection to fix up their club.

Club supporter Kim

McDiarmid was one of the

first to nominate the Hawks,

describing the club as going

above and beyond for their

players and fans.

Home to five children’s

teams, three senior teams and

a women’s team, club manager

Bernie Katene says the Shirley

Hawks are not the largest rugby

league club in the area, but the

players and supporters have a lot

of heart and the club want to do

right by them.

The club plans to use the winning

funds to upgrade the club

building, including the

bar, which had been neglected

in favour of other improvements.

“It’s a big ask for funding to

upgrade the bar, because there’s

always something else that

UPGRADE:

The Shirley

Hawks

clubrooms

are set for

an upgrade

following a

$10,000 win ​

League club gets funds for upgrade

needs to be done,” says Katene.

As a community-focused club,

having attractive clubrooms is

important.

“We rely on the community to

survive. Having a decent place

to gather and socialise keeps

interest in the team and in our

events,” says Katene.

The Woodstock Rugby League

Club fix-up competition asked

league fans to nominate their

local club via Facebook with a

short description on why they

deserved an upgrade.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

Entry is free.

Laughter yoga employs no

contact while taking part in a series

of playful laughter exercises,

including breathing and gentle

stretching. After a short while

the laughter becomes infectious

and genuine.

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

Experts restore that

“winning smile”

Meeting people for the first

time, interacting with others on social

occasions, going for a job interview – in

all these situations your smile is the most

important part of you.

or perhaps, on a lighter note, you

might be scaring yourself with your ‘selfie’

because your smile is not as attractive as it

should be, due to missing or broken teeth.

perhaps it’s time for a visit to Denture

South in Barrington, where the experts

can give you that winning smile back.

Clinical technician Andrew Johnson

and his team of clinical and lab

technicians are fully focused on providing

customised service at their Barrington

clinic, and will take all the time needed

to fulfill your partial or full denture

requirements whether you want an even,

bright smile or a more natural-looking

one.

For people who have had dentures for a

while and are finding they frequently need

to buy denture adhesive to keep them in

place, Andrew advises having the dentures

relined so they will fit better. As he points

out, the money spent on denture adhesive

over 12 months would easily cover the

cost of having your dentures refitted.

Denture South has been providing a full

range of denture services for the residents

of Christchurch for over 13 years. These

services include first-time immediate

dentures, full replacement dentures,

partial plates and sports mouth-guards.

Many Denture South clients come

through word-of-mouth referral, an

indication of the level of satisfaction that’s

provided there. Friendly, approachable

and highly skilled, the Denture South

team enjoys helping people with all their

denture fitting, ongoing care and denture

maintenance requirements.

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of dampness

in your house

noW WITH the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways to

make their homes comfortable, warm and healthy

for their families throughout winter. rISIng

DAMP is an issue that affects many of our

older properties which suffer from poor, or no,

insulation. In Canterbury especially, post-quake,

many people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated with

health problems. Independent tests have shown

that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the

ground and enter a house every day, leading to

mildew, mould, condensation and musty smells.

Moulds can produce various allergic reactions

and the frail, elderly and very young are especially

vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally

owned and operated firm. The team understands

the problems caused by rising damp and are

there to help. They will come to your damp home

and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete

under your timber floored home. Specially

adapted for our new Zealand conditions and

applications it provides a layer of protection

against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit

that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete

have noticed recently, is that many owners

of properties which had underfloor foam

concrete installed, reported that it also provided

protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508

362626 for more information.

smooth-air products

To enSure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate

the required air exchange for your building

requirement. Smooth-Air offers a wide range of

ventilation equipment, from air vents to ducting

for fans, for both the commercial and domestic

markets. They have an extensive range of fans

and ventilation components in-store but they

can also provide innovative solutions tailored to

differing requirements.

VenTILATIon

This includes both the exchange of air to the

outside as well as circulation of air within the

building. It is one of the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in

buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In case

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation

is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air,

smells, humidity and harmful substances are not

removed.

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a

high content of dust and tobacco smoke are

harmful and can cause various diseases. even

bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the

nervous system. In summer, it’s easy to open

windows for cross ventilation, however as winter

approaches, we start to shut up out houses to

trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can

decline.

It is therefore very important to ensure good

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | AUGUST 2016

The changing shape of EQC

The Earthquake Commission’s work in

Canterbury is entering a new phase as

it settles the final earthquake claims for

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes, says

EQC Chief Executive, Ian Simpson.

“Over the past few months we’ve been

looking closely at what remains to be

done and we will be carefully matching

the workforce to the work that still needs

completing.

As part of this, EQC has developed a

proposal on how EQC will be organised in

2017 to implement its work in Canterbury,

while continuing its national work.”

EQC began consultation with its staff

this week on a proposed smaller structure

for 2017.

“As we make changes over the next few

months, one thing isn’t changing: we will

retain a presence in Canterbury until we

have met our obligations to our customers.

The proposal is for an organisation with

383 positions from January 2017,” Mr

Simpson said.

The proposals for the new structure impact

the 868 EQC people on fixed term

employment agreements to December

2016 or on contracts for service.

Mr Simpson says the reduction in staff

numbers had been signalled to staff earlier

this year, with more detail given

at EQC staff update sessions in July.

He was grateful for the professionalism

of EQC staff; continuing to achieve key

milestones for Canterbury customers

during a time of change and personal

challenge.

By the end of the year, EQC’s target

is to have:

• completed all of the approximately

67,900 managed home repairs.

• settled all of the approximately 99,000

residential building claims scheduled for

first-time cash settlements.

• settled all of the more than 187,000

contents claims.

• settled green zone land claims for about

73,000 properties.

• resolved 75% of the remedial requests

we had on our books as at 30 June 2016

• cash settled 90% of the 3,118 drainage

claims we had received by 30 June

2016.

• cash settled the 13,985 damage claims

received following the series of quakes

in Canterbury between February and

June 2016.

Mr Simpson says that what remains to be

done in 2017,is to continue resolving

remedial requests on properties where

EQC has managed a repair, and continue

resolving drainage enquiries.

“The level of work left is of a much smaller

scale than the Canterbury Home Repair

Programme was designed for. We need

a smaller, fit-for-purpose approach to finish

the work,” Mr Simpson said.

“By 2017 we will have a new approach for

handling the remaining work, including

remedial requests. We’re working on the

details of this now, including talking to

Fletcher EQR. We hope we will have a

clearer picture around September,”

Mr Simpson said.

As at 31 July 2016:

• there were 238 substantive repairs left,

which we aim to have resolved by the

end of the year.

• there were 335 secondary repairs (such

as garages and chimneys) to do.

There is also a range of administrative and

financial tasks to be completed.

“I know it has not been an easy journey for

some EQC Canterbury customers. We

didn’t get everything right. I’m the first to

admit that. But EQC has worked hard to

learn from its mistakes and improve how

we work not just for Canterbury, but for all

New Zealand,” Mr Simpson said.

Outside of Canterbury, EQC needs to be

ready to respond to any future event and

continues negotiating and managing

natural disaster reinsurance for the country.

EQC will also continue settling the 5,000

to 8,000 natural disaster claims it receives

on average every year, funding research to

a tune of about $16 million annually, and

educating the public about natural hazards

and how to mitigate these.

Remedial requests

EQC has streamlined its process for handling new

remedial requests from customers received from

1 August, 2016.

EQC Chief Executive, Ian Simpson, says the new process

aims for faster resolution with customers having the

opportunity to provide information upfront and state their

preference for a cash settlement or a managed repair

where remedial work is required.

The changes have been introduced after positive

customer feedback on the process used to manage claims

from the February 2016 earthquake, where customers had

the opportunity to submit more information upfront to

enable quicker turnaround.

Many customers going through the February 2016 claims

management process are positive or very positive about

their experience. EQC is now using this approach for new

remedial requests, and customers will be asked to send in

information such as photographs and builders’ quotes.

Although cash settlement will provide a quicker

resolution, it may not suit everyone, Mr Simpson says.

“So if a customer prefers that a contractor do the work,

then EQC will arrange for that to happen. But EQC’s

Community Contact Team and independent customer

advocate groups will be available to support any cashsettled

customers who aren’t confident in sourcing their

own contractors,” he says.

Of the 5,720 open remedial requests, EQC has identified

approximately 1,500 properties that cannot be resolved

through a managed repair before 2017. The new process,

while largely designed for new remedial requests, will be

available to these customers and EQC will be making

contact with them from late August to ask if they prefer a

cash settlement or managed repair during 2017.

Customers wanting to discuss remedial requests can

contact EQC by phone 0800 DAMAGE (326 243) or email

info@eqc.govt.nz

Drainage

As at June 30 2016, EQC had 3,118 drainage damage

enquiries to be resolved. To ensure timely settlement of

these claims, EQC has introduced a panel of licenced

drain layers to identify earthquake damage.

On settlement, customers get a detailed assessment of

the earthquake damage, a documented repair strategy,

and the costing for the repair. EQC expects to resolve

90% of the drainage claims, lodged by 30 June, in 2016.

EQC is concentrating on resolving as many drainage

claims as possible that were received by June, this year.

The claims received after that date will be resolved

next year.

Topic is death

Local musician, Dizzy Height is proud to

announce the completion of his latest

recording, Passing Shadows.

“It's safe to say that this album is very,

very different and deals with a topic not

many are game to talk about let alone record

an album about, and that is the subject of

death,” says Dizzy Height. “Having worked

as an Embalmer/Funeral Director for 9

years I have seen a lot of death. The

inspiration for the album is based on my

many experiences.”

Consisting of nine tracks, the recording is

said to be a very thought provoking and

inspiring CD.

Written, performed, and produced by

Dizzy Height, the tracks feature a unique

blend of classically inspired pieces infused

with traditional rock guitar.

From the opening title track 'Passing

Shadows' to the final track 'After Life' the

album has a positive theme which

encompasses all the things that most people

have thought about at some stage.
