Dams

could

resolve

water

concerns

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A NEW dam scheme could help

protect Christchurch’s dwindling

water supply – but charging residents

for the water they use is still being

considered.

Under the scheme, dams would be

built on streams off the Waimakariri

River, designed to store floodwater in

winter and release it into the aquifers

over summer.

It is one potential solution to

Canterbury’s water problems, as the

water levels in the city’s aquifers have

dropped to record lows.

Water charges are also being

looked at to try and reduce household

water use, which takes the biggest

portion of water drawn out of the

aquifers.

A working group has been tasked to

look at potential solutions and report

back to the Christchurch West Melton

Water Zone Committee.

Working group chairman Chris

Kelliher said there was a lot more

work to do on the scheme before he

could say if it was the best or most

cost-effective option.

But he believed creating dams or water

storage ponds was a good solution.

The idea is to harvest water out of

the river in the winter when there’s a

good flow and it’s not being utilised,

and then put it back in aquifers in the

summer,” he said.

Similar schemes have been

successful in Australia, and one is

being piloted in Hinds in South

Canterbury.

A HEARTBREAKING

situation for the Matthews

family (page 1).

Their son, Toby, is deaf and

will soon also be blind. Imagine

it, the last time you see your

mother or father’s face. The last

time you will see a bright full

moon.

But Toby is a lively chap and

he wants to head to Africa to

help his dad build a school for

children in Zimbabwe.

Let’s see if we can get them

there folks. Details about a

Givealittle page are in the

article.

It is a bit of a shock to the

system to realise how dire our

water situation is.

It is actually at the point

where authorities are looking

at charging for water, and also

looking at the feasibility of

building a dam to store floodwater

in winter and release it into

the aquifers (page 1).

And it is the show that everyone

is raving about. The big pink

bus has rolled into town and our

reviewer had one heck of a good

time at Priscilla Queen of the

Desert. Check it out on page 21.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the first wool cargo

shipped to London from Lyttelton on March

27, 1856. It travelled via Auckland. On March

28, 1981, the new South Brighton Bridge

was opened. On April 1, 1903, Sydenham,

Linwood and St Albans amalgamated with

the city to form greater Christchurch. On the

same day in 1915, the first regular supply of

electricity from Lake Coleridge was received

in Christchurch; in 1932, New Regent St was

opened; in 1949 the Sign of the Takahe was

opened; and in 1979 the Lyttelton Rd tunnel

became toll-free.

Letter tells of rescue

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THE FAMILY of former SAS

soldier Steve Askin, who died

fighting the Port Hills fire, has

received a very special letter

– from a woman who says he

saved her life.

The woman was one of about

70 guests at the InterContinental

Hotel in Kabul in 2011 when it

was taken over by heavily armed

Taliban fighters wearing suicide

vests.

Steve and seven other SAS

soldiers fought for five hours to

rescue the guests.

The woman, who has asked

not to be named, wrote to the

Askin family after hearing of

Steve’s death.

Steve was killed in a helicopter

crash last month while helping

to fight the Port Hills fires.

The woman wrote to Steve’s

family about her experience in

the hotel that night:

“I had hidden in a cupboard

for six hours, and when I heard

the insurgents going through

the rooms below I realised that

there was a high possibility I

might not get out alive. I never

expected anyone to come in

and save us, and no words can

express the gratitude that I felt.

Steve was a hero,” she wrote.

Steve had his ear shot off in

the battle that night, but kept

fighting to rescue the guests.

Eleven people were killed by

the Taliban gunmen before the

ATTACK: Steve Askin was one of eight

NZ SAS soldiers who rescued guests

from the InterContinental Hotel in Kabul

during a 2011 Taliban attack.

Below: Steve and Elizabeth Askin

battle ended the next morning.

The woman was eventually

rescued by a NZ SAS soldier, but

in his battle dress she was not

sure if it was Steve or one of the

others who fought with him.

Steve was later awarded a NZ

Gallantry Star for his bravery in

the battle.

Steve’s father, Paul Askin,

said the letter meant a lot to the

family.

He said his son had been different

after that battle, as knowing

he had saved lives gave him

a lot of satisfaction.

“After that battle he felt a real

sense of completion, that this

is what all the training and the

years of hard work equipped

him to do,” he said.

He said it had been hard for

the family to see Steve go into

dangerous situations as an SAS

soldier, but it was something he

was good at.

“I always thought if I was a

hostage being held somewhere

like that I would want boys

like him coming to my rescue.

Somebody’s kid has got to do it,”

he said.

Steve retired from the army in

2013 to spend more time with

his family, and began working

as a helicopter pilot.

Paul Askin said the family

had been inundated with letters

and messages from people who

knew Steve.

“We’re really proud of our

son,” he said.

He said Steve’s wife, Elizabeth,

and children Isabelle, 7, and

Bowie, 4, were missing him

hugely, but had a lot of support

from family and friends.

Dams could resolve water woes

In Brief

STATUE CLEANING

Almost $2000 has been spent on

cleaning weeds from the Antony

Gormley statue in the Avon River

by the city council. Acting head

of parks Brent Smith said the

artwork is checked and cleared

twice a week during summer and

winter but from autumn to spring

this is increased to three times

a week. He said it’s also cleaned

reactively after storms. Each visit

costs $33.81 and so far the 53

visits made to date total $1791.

One road cone and one vest have

also been removed.

PARADE FUNDS

THe city council may set aside

future funding for the Santa

Parade – but there is still no

funding for this year’s parade.

The parade trust reserves were

used to cover last year’s parade,

after the city council cut funding

from $85,000 to $60,000. A

crowdfunding campaign has been

launched to help save the parade,

at www.givealittle.co.nz/org/

santaparadechristchurch000

ORCHARD CAMPAIGN

A crowdfunding campaign to

raise $60,000 for the Otakaro

Orchard project by 8pm Friday

was three-quarters of the way

towards its goal as of yesterday.

At noon yesterday, the campaign

had attracted 384 pledges with

about $45,000 committed. The

project, led by the Food Resilience

Network, involves creating an

edible park, cafe and local food

information centre on Cambridge

Tce, next to the former PGC

building site. Anyone wishing

to contribute can do so online at

www.pledgeme.co.nz

•From page 1

He said the working group was

initially focused on recharging

the aquifers, but would also look

at what could be done to reduce

water use.

He said water charges were still

“on the table” and likely to be considered

in the future.

“We have to look at using water

more wisely,” he said.

Christchurch residents use an

average of 357-litres of water per

person per day, compared with

273-litres of water in Auckland

where there are household water

charges.

Environmental planner and

groundwater expert, Bryan

Jenkins, said he believed the plan

would work.

He said Canterbury’s aquifers

usually only replenished over

winter, because the soil dried up

so much over summer that any

rain would evaporate from the

soil before it could trickle through

to the aquifers.

If a pond or dam was built in

the right place, water could be

released steadily so the ground

stayed moist and water could

gradually soak through.

But even if dams were built,

he believed water charges would

still be needed.

Where water from

Christchurch aquifers

goes:

•45 per cent residential and

commercial

•31 per cent industrial

•22 per cent rural or irrigation

•1 per cent recreational

•Christchurch residents use

an average of 357-litres of

water per person per day

RESTAURANT TO CHANGE

Christchurch restaurateur Tony

Astle is changing one of his

Eathai, on Victoria St, will be

Toby’s dreams fading into darkness

• By Gabrielle Stuart

TOBY MATTHEWS has always

had big dreams – he wants to be

a firefighter, or a builder like his

dad.

But his dreams may now be

impossible.

Toby is deaf, and learned

last year that he is also going

blind.

He has Usher syndrome, a

very rare and incurable genetic

condition. He was born deaf,

but now his vision is tunnelling,

so the area he can see is slowly

getting smaller.

His parents, Logan and Meg

Matthews, said they had no idea

what the condition was when

they were called by a doctor

last year, and told their son was

going blind.

“We were told to Google it,”

Mr Matthews said.

Because it is so rare, they did

not know how long Toby’s vision

might last.

There is no time frame, no

answers, no way to fix it. Which

I think is the hardest thing, not

knowing how it is going to end,

or when,” he said.

They are now trying to

fill Toby’s life with as many

experiences as possible, before

his world goes dark.

In May, Mr Matthews plans to

take Toby to Africa, to spend two

weeks helping to build a school

for children in Zimbabwe.

“We thought it would be a

great opportunity for Toby,

while he’s got some vision, to go

overseas and do that exploring

that most of us do when we’re

SUPPORT:

older and take for granted,” he

said.

Toby has his heart set on

seeing a tiger – and although

they are unlikely to find tigers in

Zimbabwe, Mr Matthews said

they planned to go on a safari to

see the wildlife, and visit places

such as Victoria Falls.

They are also trying to teach

him ways to cope as he gradually

loses his vision.

Toby already knows sign

language, but they are teaching

him finger spelling – and he was

already begging for a guide dog,

Mr Matthews said.

But he said going out at night

could be terrifying for Toby,

as he had lost night vision,

and navigating was becoming

frustrating.

“He comes home most days

with cuts or bruises, because

he’s walked into a pole or

tripped over something,” he

said.

He said the hardest part was

hearing Toby talk about his big

dreams for the future, and not

knowing what to tell him.

“As his vision gets worse you

realise those dreams he has, he

won’t be able to do.”

East side youth at risk

• By Bridget Rutherford

YOUTH IN the eastern

suburbs are more likely to have

self-harmed, suffered anxiety,

depression and low self-esteem

than others in the country.

The Prime Minister’s Youth

Mental Health Project’s recent

report showed out of the six areas

assessed across the country, east

Christchurch youth were most

at risk.

Data from three Christchurch

schools showed 36 per cent had

high anxiety or depression, 28

per cent had self-harmed, 43 per

cent suffered low self-esteem

and 36 per cent lacked a sense of

belonging.

Forty-three per cent lacked

feeling safe at school, while 18

per cent suffered moderate to

severe bullying.

They were the highest in all

categories, when compared with

Northland, West Auckland,

Hawke’s Bay, Lower Hutt and

Invercargill.

There were “never enough”

“It’s not something we can fix

earthquakes had “heightened”

some youths’ vulnerability.

“Do I think about it in the

Central city to

get free wi-fi

• By Bridget Rutherford

FREE WIRELESS internet will

be rolled out in the central city

over the next six months – and

it is expected to draw more

people in and boost business.

The city council, in collaboration

with Canterbury Transport

Operation Centre, is working to

offer free wi-fi in between the

four avenues.

City council Smart Cities

programme manager Teresa

McCallum said it was a ‘proof of

concept’ project under way

to make Christchurch an innovative

and sustainable 21st century

city.

She said the phased roll-out

of the wi-fi in the central city

would happen over the next six

months, starting in May.

The city council was currently

working on defining the trial

scope, estimating costs and

planning how to implement it,

she said.

If it proved successful, it

would become a city council

level of service.

Central City Business Association

chairman Brendan

Chase said it was a good thing.

“Having people in the central

city is good for business, it’s as

simple as that.”

He said the wi-fi would help

bring people into the central

city, and in turn many of those

people would then visit the

businesses.

“It’s going to appeal to a wide

range of the community.”

Ms McCallum said the city

council would install radios,

access points and switches for

the network, by leveraging

existing CTOC and city council

networks.

“It is anticipated that this will

be structured in a similar way to

council’s existing free public wifi

network currently in libraries,

service centres, and recreational

facilities.”

She said it was unlikely there

would be a time limit for those

using the wi-fi, although the

plan was not finalised.

She said until the wi-fi was

rolled out, she could not give

certain costs.

But it was estimated to be

about $7000 a month depending

on data usage, she said.

Nick Hunt

Rebuilding the city another

Developer Nick Hunt’s $140 million BNZ Centre opened this year,

bringing both shoppers and office workers back into the central

city. He spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about his adventures, both in the

rebuild and in his past life as a ship captain

What is it like to stand in the

BNZ Centre and see it finally

filled with people?

It’s very good, believe you me.

We’ll have about 1000 people in

here once it’s full. But for me, I

still just see all the things that

still have to be done. I’ve been so

focused on the building. We’ve

been building for three years,

designing for a year, and there

was two years work before that.

For someone my age, it’s been a

long six and a half years.

So tell me about your background?

I used to be a ship’s captain. I

was born in England, but went

away at 16 to sail all over the

world on various ships. Back

then, it wasn’t like it is for youngsters

nowadays, who are able to

fly around the world. Back then

it was the only way you could

escape.

Where did you travel?

Everywhere. India, the Baltics,

around the Middle East, South

Africa, Japan. More recently,

many trips between Australia

and New Zealand. For a while, I

was skipper of a ferry across the

English Channel.

You must have had plenty of

adventures?

Yes, there are almost as many

dramas in shipping as there are

when you are building in Cashel

Mall, so the experience was very

valuable. It teaches you you’ve

got to make things work.

When things go wrong, you

can’t call on consultants and

lawyers, you’ve just got to

somehow make it work.

But there were plenty of

adventures. I was once

taking the Archbishop

of Canterbury across

the channel with his

family to celebrate

his 25th wedding

anniversary. A bottle

of champagne

REBUILD:

Nick Hunt

is the

developer

behind the

BNZ Centre

on Cashel St.

had been organised to be

brought up to his cabin.

But when he went to

open it, the cork hit

his glasses, and a piece

of glass went straight

into his eye. So the

next thing he was

down on the couch,

and we were going

full ahead, opening

up the engines. His eye

was saved, but I think it

ruined the celebrations.

And what was it that

made you decide to

leave the sea?

It was in

1998.

I was on a ship in Tauranga

when a lady came on board

with a little note, a writ to go up

on the mast to say the owners

were being taken to court for

non-payment of debts. I was

55 at the time, so I thought I

better start a new career. So we

mortgaged the house and cashed

in the pension, and I bought

and refurbished Briscoes and

Whitcoulls. I always liked to buy

buildings and do them up. Then

the earthquakes arrived, and I

had to make a choice.

Why did you choose to

stay and rebuild, when you

must have known it would be

incredibly difficult?

This is a privilege for an elderly

gentleman like me to be part of.

The last big adventure of my life.

Take me though what

happened after the

earthquakes?

Some of my buildings were

damaged in the Boxing Day

earthquake in 2010, so we closed

them. An engineer went through

and said these buildings are

dangerous, we have to shut

them down, and thank God we

did.

adventure for developer

Otherwise there could have

been numerous deaths in them

in the February earthquake if

they were inhabited. We heard

from another engineer at the

time who said, “no, I think

they’re fine”, but I’m glad we

didn’t listen.

Because I had a big enough

area of land, I was able to get

the green light to rebuild quite

fast. So our Briscoes building on

Salisbury St was one of the first

to reopen in July 2012.

What do your days look like

as a developer?

I’ll start checking things before

breakfast. Then come emails

and more emails. I spend most

of my day in meetings, like with

builders or with councils, some

of them interesting and some not

as much. And there are always

decisions to make.

Several developers I have spoken

to have said they are only

rebuilding here for the love of

the city – because they could

make much more money and

building would be much easier

somewhere else. Is that the case

for you?

I think it’s true that none of us

really comprehended how difficult

it would be. There have been

big problems for developers. One

of them was the shutting down

of the central city after February.

Then there were all of those consent

and regulatory issues.

Our tenants have faced the

same things. Scorpio Books, one

of my tenants, had to move out

of the city, and the costs of the

move and fit-out make moving

back a considerable investment.

But many of them are Christchurch

people who have been here

for years. It shows their commitment

and faith in the city that

this is going to work.

What do you think of the way

the city is shaping?

There are issues. Accessibility

is very important, because the

COMPLETE:

Nick Hunt’s

BNZ Centre

is set to

bring about

1000 office

workers

back into the

central city.

PHOTO:

GEOFF

SLOAN

last thing we want is a rebuilt

city facing so much gridlock

even ambulances can’t get

through. So that’s a bit of a problem.

But if we do this right, this

is going to be the finest city in

New Zealand by a country mile.

I remember the first time I

came here in 1989, on a trip up

from Timaru. I remember we

walked down this part of Cashel

Mall and I said, “this is fabulous,

I’ve never seen anything so nice”.

Christchurch is a very pretty

city, and it seemed the prime

spot in the city, by the river. So

it’s very satisfying to be bringing

it back.

Outside work, what do you do

with your time?

We like things like travelling

and tramping, but we haven’t

had much time for them. I don’t

think I’ve read a book for five

years.

Do you ever get out on the

water?

From time to time, but having

worked on the water for so many

years, it’s not usually top of my

priority list.

So what is next for you?

Work on the BNZ Centre is a

never ending process. I would

like to hope my work would be

wound down by Christmas so I

can relax, but there is certainly

another year of work left before

it is finished. But my wife is

starting to get really peeved off.

They call it the rebuild widows

club. So I’ve promised her a good

long holiday in Europe in June,

no matter what.

League club to stub

out sideline smoking

• By Gabrielle Stuart

PARENTS WATCHING from

the sidelines at a children’s rugby

league tournament this weekend

will be asked to stub out their

cigarettes.

The Rolleston Warriors Rugby

League club has a smoke-free

stance on all its home games and

practices, and plans to enforce it

when it hosts Canterbury nursery

grade teams in Rolleston this

weekend.

Club president Nui Ririnui said

it banned smoking because it

wanted to change rugby league’s

image of “bad behaviour.”

The club was founded last year,

and Mr Ririnui said it wanted to

make families the focus.

“From the get go from day one,

our morals have been smoke-free,

alcohol-free and positive sideline

behaviour,” he said.

Although they put up smokefree

signs at every game, he said

some smokers lit up anyway.

They were asked to leave and

finish their cigarette somewhere

else.

Most had taken it well, he said.

“One guy who was a heavy

smoker came up to me about a

week later and gave me a pat on

the back. He said, mate, I love

what you’re doing,” he said.

Mr Ririnui hoped other clubs

would make the same stance.

“Some people might think, oh

yeah, nah, it’s too big a job, but it

comes natural to us because this

is what we’re about. We’re hoping

it inspires some other clubs to go

smoke-free because, at the end

of the day, these are our kids.

They’re our future,” he said.

Regional film office raised

as way to boost industry

• By Bridget Rutherford

A REGIONAL film office aimed

at bringing more international

productions to Canterbury

could be re-established.

It comes after the city council

stopped funding the previous

office, Film South, which helped

secure location filming for The

Chronicles of Narnia, leading to

its closure eight years ago.

The city council has given a

$15,000 grant to the Film Canterbury

Charitable Trust to support

the research, consultation

and development of a business

case into whether a film office

could be established.

City council head of urban design,

regeneration and heritage

Carolyn Ingles said the money

was given out of its creative

industries support fund.

Film Canterbury spokeswoman

Jackie Maw Tolliver said

she had been working behind

the scenes to establish the office.

But she said she could not

Street art explosion

transforms theatre

Wayne Walsh has seen street art in Berlin, Paris, New York

and Melbourne – but none compare to the work he found

inside an earthquake-damaged building right here. The

quantitative surveyor and photographer went inside the

red-stickered Mill Theatre in Addington two weeks ago and

was “blown away” by the level of graffiti he found. “I’ve been

in galleries all over the world and I’ve never seen anything

like it.” The 34-year-old moved to Christchurch from Cork,

Ireland, seven years ago. He has been working with street

artists to make an online gallery where they could sell their

Nelson sings at retirement homes to honour veterans

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A RISING star in the music

industry will release a special

remembrance album for those

who lost their lives as a result of

war.

Rebecca Nelson, 29, will release

her new album Poppies & Pohutukawa

next week.

As the official singer for the

Royal New Zealand Navy Band,

Nelson said she has a lot of

respect for the country’s Defence

Force.

Three city retirement villages

will be some of the first to see

Nelson debut her new album.

After years of perfecting her

craft as a busker, the singer,

who grew up in the Bishopdale/

Harewood area, has been signed

to Sony Music New Zealand by

Scott Maclachlan, who managed

singer-songwriter Lorde.

It was Nelson’s experience in

Turkey with the New Zealand

Defence Force to commemorate

the Gallipoli landing in 1915 that

inspired her to create the remembrance

album.

“All the songs on this album

are really well-known ones that

resonated with me or that I have

sung at commemorations around

the world,” Nelson said.

Nelson dedicated the title

track, Poppies & Pohutukawa, to

her great uncle Tom Nelson.

She said the song is special

to her because her great uncle

fought in the Battle of Passchendaele

and is buried in Belgium.

Last year in France, Nelson

performed the song for the

100-year commemoration of the

Battle of Somme. Prince Charles

was in the audience.

Her career first took off when

she was thrown into busking as

a 20-year-old after she moved to

Ireland and lost her job due to

the global financial crisis.

“I had kind of dabbled a little

bit in the busking over there and

I thought this is my chance to

give it a go and I haven’t looked

back,” she said.

She was soon discovered by

musical group The Priests who

took her on tour through Scotland

and Ireland.

When Nelson moved back

to New Zealand she joined the

Royal New Zealand Navy Band.

•Nelson will perform

at the Ngaio Marsh,

Anthony Wilding and Essie

Summers retirement villages

next month. For more

Heat pump specialists offer expertise & hot prices

As winter approaches and thoughts turn to home heating, the idea of having a heat pump installed is seen as an ideal and

cost-effective solution for many homeowners.

That’s where advice from residential

heat pump specialists DC Installation

Services can be invaluable.

A small Christchurch owned and

operated business run by husband

and wife Daniel and Mel Cooper, DC

Installation Services not only has the

heat pump expertise and experience,

it also has the buying power to offer

customers top-brand heat pumps at

very competitive prices, Daniel says.

“We can come to your home to carry

out a site inspection and then advise on

the best heat pump for your situation.

We can give a quick,on-the-spot

quote with no obligation. Once you

book us, installation is done quickly

too, and we offer a full guarantee

on our workmanship for the life

of the unit.”

The company supplies all the major

brands, but highly recommends

Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps, as they

believe the quality and reliability exceed

that of other brands on the market.

“Mitsubishi Electric has carried out

extensive research and development to

produce heat pumps that are specially

designed to work efficiently in our

climate,” says Daniel.

Another advantage is that customers

having an existing heat pump replaced

with a Mitsubishi Electric model can

use the existing pipe work, which cuts

down on the cost.

DC Installation Services has an online

Trade Me store, which has generated a

lot of positive feedback.

“We have had well over 150

independent customer reviews, and

they are all 100 per cent positive,”

Daniel says.

Boosting trade a priority

NEW ZEALAND is

fundamentally a trading nation

and our broad international

trade ties are part of the reason

why we’re doing so well today.

Successive New Zealand

Governments have finalised

trade agreements with a number

of countries, including Australia,

Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia,

Korea and China. Exports are

now worth $70 billion to our

country’s economy.

Our agreements so far are

working well for exporters and

getting Kiwis a good return.

Our goods exports to mainland

China are now four times what

they were before the FTA and

our wine exports to South Korea

have increased by 30 per cent

after just six months.

Prime Minister Bill English

recently launched our new trade

strategy – Trade Agenda 2030

which lays out the Government’s

commitment to forging new and

improved trade ties, and further

investment to achieve that.

We’ve set the ambitious goal

of having FTAs cover 90 per cent

of New Zealand’s goods exports

by 2030, up from 53 per cent

today.

In Budget 2017, $91.3 million

over four years will be dedicated

to helping us achieve this.

Gerry Brownlee

This will go towards forging

new trade agreements, maximising

the benefits of existing ones,

establishing new diplomatic

posts in Dublin and Sri Lanka

and supporting Kiwi exporters

to enter new markets.

Canterbury is well-positioned

to profit from this initiative,

which will boost our alreadystrong

regional economy.

For the 12 months ending September

2016, the greater Christchurch

gross domestic product

was $22.2 billion. That’s a 9.9 per

cent share of the national GDP.

The total value of the region’s

export trade through our ports

for the 12 months ending

January 2017 was $4.7 billion for

Lyttelton Port and $0.8 billion

for Christchurch Airport.

I’m sure many Canterbury

businesses will relish this renewed

emphasis on trade and

I look forward to seeing them

prosper.

Rail part of the big picture

I THINK it’s really

exciting that over

the last couple of

weeks the debate

and conversation

about public

transport and rail

for the wider Christchurch area

has been reignited.

Sparking the most recent

debate is Hornby man Tane

Apanui’s proposal to have commuter

rail for a fraction of the

cost previously mooted. While

the details of this particular proposal

are being mulled over by

the powers that be, I believe the

big picture and vision also needs

to examined.

Over the last six years, the

shape of greater Christchurch

has changed so much. Housing

developments in Selwyn and

Waimakariri have boomed and

with them has come the inevitable

traffic congestion. So far,

only roads have been suggested

as solutions. For me, we need

to be imagining a future with

increased public transport – of

which commuter trains are an

exciting part of the mix, along

with roads, cycling and good

pedestrian routes.

The debate about commuter

rail is far from new. Labour had

a policy to get it started at the

last election. We also had a plan

to further integrate the various

players responsible for transport

in the area.

Here in Canterbury, transport

responsibilities are shared

between various local authorities.

It’s a delicate balance, with

ECan responsible for operating

public transport and respective

councils footing the bill for

infrastructure, such as shelters

and car parks. The entry of the

Greater Christchurch Public

Transport Committee, which

brings together all the players,

has been a welcome development.

Improved collaboration

in public transport decisionmaking

is expected as a result

of the committee. This is vital

to making sure that the greater

Christchurch we build back is

not a relic of the 20th century,

but one that is ready for our

future.

So, my hat goes off to Tane

for ensuring the debate about

commuter rail is not solely an

Auckland issue.

Thursday March 30 2017

Tim Seay, of Rakaia,

responds to the

Christchurch Art Gallery’s

drop in visitor numbers

You quoted (The Star, March

16) Christchurch Art Gallery

director Jenny Harper saying

that recent visitor numbers at

77 per cent of the city council’s

target level were disappointing

and she wanted them to

increase.

THey have been stagnating

while those of the Canterbury

Museum are increasing strongly

on the back of the tourism boom.

Almost 1.5 million tourists now

visit the Botanical Gardens

each year and the majority of

Canterbury Museum’s visitors

are tourists. Being on a central

city site the new gallery is only

visited by a few tourists.

It is time Jenny Harper

accepted her responsibilities as

director and advised the city

council that their retention of the

McDougall Art Gallery in the

Gardens for the city’s collection

will solve all her problems. It will

provide the additional storage

and display capacity needed by

the gallery and will increase

visitor numbers.

THe McDougall always used

to receive tourist visitors and

could now if open easily attract

another 100,000 tourist visitors

straight away in addition to local

people.

Why does she continue to

refuse to acknowledge this?

Pam Brathwaite, of Ilam,

writes about the intersection

of Ilam Rd, Middleton

Rd and Riccarton Rd,

ranked as the city’s second

most dangerous, which will

be upgraded in 2019

Jan Nolan (Viewpoint, March

23) suggests fixing the problem

by putting dedicated right-turning

arrows from Ilam Rd and

Middleton Rd into Riccarton Rd.

This solution would need

dedicated right-turning lanes,

and currently there is no room

for these.

However, the arrows would

work well if lights for Ilam Rd

and Middleton Rd were separately

phased, so that cars could

turn right or cross the intersection

safely from the same queue,

without the current blockages

caused by right-turning traffic.

This could make the intersection

much safer immediately, for

a modest cost, and then a longerterm

solution could be explored

for 2019.

Readers respond to a

multi-agency group looking

into altering the amber

traffic signal by up to a

second in a bid to curb the

city’s red light-running

problem

Elle Morton – I travel across

the city every day and have observed

that very heavy use intersections

don’t have right turning

arrows and those that do either

don’t work (Curletts Rd/Main

South Rd) or have a ridiculously

short time span.

Drivers are prepared to wait

patiently if they know they will

get their turn to right turn and

not try to be forced in the middle

on an amber light which turns to

red before they can turn.

Our traffic management in

Christchurch is almost third

world – no right turning arrow

at Main South Rd/Clarence St

and many other heavy use intersections

need them installed.

This, I feel, would make

intersections safer. Even worse

are intersections with gridlocked

traffic with no lights (ie streets

leading into Barrington St from

the mall) and cars trying to

make dangerous right turns.

Curletts Rd at 3pm has traffic

from five schools feed into it at

the Main South Rd intersection

– dangerous at any time to turn

right but more so at 3pm.

Sue Bennetts – I live close

to the intersection of Clyde Rd,

Fendalton Rd and Memorial Ave.

I cross the road every morning

at approximately 8.30am going

south from Clyde Rd.

Every morning there would

be at least three cars per light

change that run a red light. I

often have to wait for cars to go

through as they constantly run

red lights.

The kids on scooters, walking

and cycling often have to wait as

the green man comes up on the

traffic light.

However, there are often three

or more cars still travelling

through the intersection very

quickly.

A friend’s son was hit on the

pedestrian crossing to the BP.

This is a big intersection with

hundreds of children crossing

every day to get to three different

schools.

I can honestly say that every

morning there would be at least

three red light-runners in either

direction on every light change.

This is not turning on a red light

but just going straight through

from Fendalton Rd to Memorial

Ave.

Because Christchurch (unlike

every other major city in New

Zealand), has very few right

hand turning green arrows it is

almost impossible to turn right

under a green light.

Drop by the intersection

of Clyde Rd and Creyke Rd at

3.30pm and try to turn right.

Yesterday, I tried this and it took

me 21min to get through the

intersection.

Why don’t we just issue tickets

for red light runners (not turning

right) at $150 a pop and see how

that works.

Lynley Fisher – Reading the

article in The Star compelled me

to write.

To some degree yes . . . they

need to sort out the light changes

to use common sense and not

frustrate people. I am guilty of

running red lights sometimes

but honestly when you have sat

through some sets three times

you get so frustrated.

I take my boy to school and

turn right from Styx Mill Rd into

Main North Rd, sometimes or

often, there are truck and trailers

waiting to turn also. The light

changes give long enough for

the one truck and trailer to get

through sometimes and no one

else. So annoying.

So if I am behind, I go through

too or I am late for school.

Last week, I was at Northwood

lights turning left into Main

North Rd. I had a red arrow

waiting for a pedestrian to cross

the road. It is such a wide road

that by the time the woman had

crossed, one car had time to turn

left . . . so I ran an amber/red

light again out of frustration!

The light cycles frustrate everyone,

who in turn, take risks.

Kathy Hughes – Allowing

the give way rule at red lights

for left turning traffic would free

up some traffic flow and reduce

driver wait time and frustration.

The United States has this –

give way on red for right turning

traffic as they drive on the right.

It works brilliantly by reducing

queues when the road is clear.

Gavin Simon – Thank you

for your article which is timely

as some of the traffic problems

in Christchurch can be laid

at the blame of Christchurch

traffic engineers and the others

mentioned in your article –

Canterbury Transport Operation

Centre, city council, NZ Transport

Agency and Christchurch

Police.

What was not mentioned was

the short duration of some green

lights and the frequent short

duration of green arrows. This

promotes the illegal travelling

through on yellow lights and red

light running because of the necessity,

or, sitting in the middle

with a green then yellow, requiring

a red to turn right mainly

because of a lack of a green right

turn arrow.

Many of these green turning

lights have a duration of only

2sec meaning that the yellow

phase of 3.5sec lets more cars

through than the green arrow

phase. I realise that light phases

is sharing time with the other

directions, but if you are sitting

in a queue beginning at 10 cars

and require three light cycles to

get through the intersection then

something is wrong.

Auckland green and green arrow

phases are far longer, why do

they have a different standard?

Many intersections have only a

red turning arrow and no amber

or green, so if the intersection is

clear to make a right turn on the

green light the red right turn arrow

prevents you from clearing

the intersection.

Standalone red turning arrows

should be abolished if they are

not in conjunction with a green

right turning arrow.

seriously taken it up a gear in

its first extravagant production

of the year.

Everything from the eccentric

costumes through to

the cleverly-choreographed,

booty-shaking numbers has

been done on a large scale – it

is impossible to not walk away

from the show feeling uplifted

and ready to dance.

With a lively audience

thrown into the mix, the Isaac

Theatre Royal was transformed

into a grooving disco

party.

From the street, you could

probably hear the rollicking

audience yahooing away to

some of the 1980s best pop

hits.

The show is centred around

a road trip across the outback

ACTION: The talented cast in Showbiz Christchurch’s latest

production Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

of Australia, with some lucky

audience members even getting

to have a hoedown with a

few “rednecks” in the hilarious

number, Thank God I’m A

Country Boy.

Behind the glitz and glamour

is a beautiful story about

two Sydney drag queens and

a male transgender who travel

on a battered bus called Priscilla

to find acceptance for the

way they have chosen to live.

It is hard to pick a favourite

drag queen out of the three

leading roles. In spite of some

hilarious lip-syncing in a lot of

the songs, all three had beautiful

voices, which were especially

striking in True Colours

and I Say A Little Prayer.

Cameron Douglas portrayed

elegance and a unique beauty

as the ageing transsexual

Bernadette.

Tom Worthington’s role as

Adam Whitely and the dragqueen

Felicia Jollygoodfellow

was irresistible. That cheeky

smirk he mastered for what

is a youthful role just sang

trouble.

My jaw dropped open

during his flamboyant performance

of Venus. The minimal

armour-themed costumes

Worthington and a talented

ensemble of male dancers

wore – plus the often raunchy

dance moves – made for a wild

spectacle, which the audience

loved.

The three flying divas,

played by Naomi Ferguson,

Jane Leonard and Emily

Burns, cannot go unmentioned.

All three were powerhouses

who smashed out disco

sing-alongs.

Burns’ voice shone when she

sang I Will Survive. Her voice

was so powerful and clear, it

was like she had sent shock

waves through the theatre.

There was the odd sound

issue, but I believe this would

have been well and truly

smoothed out by now.

I thought Showbiz punched

well above its weight in what

was a technically challenging

show. Some of the sizzling

one-liners were to die for –

unfortunately, I don’t think I

would get away with putting

my favourites in the paper.

•Priscilla Queen of the

Desert runs until April 8.

SMOOTHIE

Ingredients

2 Apples

1 Orange

1 Lemon

1 NZ Green Kiwifruit, peeled

Directions

Juice the orange, lemon and

2 kgs Feijoas

6 slices Fresh ginger

½ Orange, zested

½ Lemon, zested

1 cup Sugar, for each cup of

All you need to know about chilling bulbs

• By Paul Hoek

TO CHILL or not to chill. It’s an

age-old question and one I get

asked every year in the lead-up to

spring bulb planting.

So what’s the answer? Yes – you

may need to chill your spring

flowering bulbs, but only tulips

and hyacinths.

And it’s only essential if you

experience fewer than five frosts

a winter. But even if you do get

enough natural chilling in winter,

fridge chilling can still give

benefits – taller stems and earlier

flowering.

Why you need to chill certain

bulbs? Tulips and hyacinths are

native to areas which experience

quite cold winters and they need

this cold period for the bulb to

complete the development of

the flower bud deep inside. Sure

signs you should have chilled

your bulbs are if they produced

unusually short stems or the bulbs

failed to flower at all.

Done correctly, chilling your

tulips and hyacinths will result in

perfect spring flowers. Here are

my tips for optimal bulb chilling:

1. Don’t start chilling until

late March – too early and you’ll

stunt the flower bud development.

COLOUR: Tulip ad rem

– chilling will complete the

development of the flower

bud.

2. Use a paper bag. It’s very

important the bulbs can breathe

and plastic bags cause sweating

and rot may develop.

3. Keep the bulbs to the side

of the fridge, not at the back

where the cooler plate may ice

up and damage them, or where

condensation may cause mould to

develop.

4. Never put bulbs in the

freezer! The freezer is too cold

and will kill your bulbs.

5. Keep fruit out of the fridge

while you’re chilling your bulbs.

Ripening fruit releases a gas called

ethylene which can cause severe

damage to the developing flower

bud in the bulb. If you can’t keep

fruit out of the fridge, include an

ethylene-absorbing sachet (available

on our website) in the bag

with the bulb. This will prevent

ethylene damage and suppress

mould growth (they’re actually

really good in the vege compartment

too, to make your veges

keep longer).

Once you’ve chilled your bulbs

for around eight weeks it’s time to

start planting in mid to late May

when soil temperatures are cooler.

Before you plant, work the soil

with a fork to a depth of 25cm.

This is deeper than the bulbs need

to be planted but will allow their

new roots to easily push further

into the soil. Then plant your

bulbs around 15cm deep – it’s

cooler down there. Once planted

give your bulbs a light watering.

In cooler parts of New Zealand

you can plant tulips and hyacinths

successfully in pots, but because

pots warm up so quickly, even in

winter, I don’t recommend them

for warmer areas.

Apply a bulb fertiliser (available

from your local garden

centre) once the shoots emerge,

water well and you can expect

your bulbs to put on a spectacular

show come spring.

CREATION: Hyacinth purple sensation – will flower perfectly if

chilled.

Make haste

GET

STARTED:

It’s time to

get your

winter

vegetable

garden

growing.

AUTUMN HAS rolled in bringing

shorter days with a definite chill in

the air. Leaves will start to turn as

we embark on a busy month in the

garden.

A very ‘fruitful’ time in the

garden with late harvest of numerous

vegetables such as jerusalem

artichokes, beans, beetroot, carrots,

corn, cucumber, kumara, leeks,

lettuce, onion, potatoes, pumpkin,

radishes, silverbeet, spinach and

tomatoes.

If you haven’t prepared your

winter vegetable garden now, then

get started. Include plenty of compost

and a ‘base’ fertiliser of blood

and bone.

If possible, raise the earth to be

planted to ensure winter veges do

not become water logged over wet

winter months.

Winter veges to plant in April

include broad beans, carrots, cabbage,

broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce,

onions, peas, radish, spinach,

swedes and turnips.

In the flower garden, your

summer annuals will be winding

down. Continue to dead-head

plants where you want to prolong

displays.

ADVICE with

$85

PRIZE

PACK!

Q

A

Instead of having a ‘regular’ lawn, I would like to

plant native grasses and tussocks. What would

you recommend?

Today’s winning question came from

Sasha Williams. Congratulations!

Rather than simply replacing your lawn

with native grasses, we would suggest a

combination of low growing grasses and

native ground covers. This will not only provide

interest in your garden, but the ground covers will also

help suppress weeds from emerging.

The plants listed to the right are suitable for cultivating

in the Canterbury district.

Grasses and

Grass-like Plants:

Aciphylla dieffenbachii

(spear grass)

Aciphylla squarrosa

Anemanthele lessoniania

Carex comans

Carex buchananii

Carex fl agellifera

Libertia ixioides

Libertia peregrinans

Ground Covers:

Acaena inermis

Coprosma acerosa

(Te Puna)

Coprosma taiko

Geranium traversii

Fuchsia procumens

Gunnera prorepens

Mazus radicans

Nertera depressa

Pimelea prostata

Prepare your soil well before planting to ensure your new plants get the best start. To achieve this, incorporate

lots of organic matter such as Daltons Compost, which improves the soil quality and help plants develop

strong, healthy root systems. You can fi nish with a layer of mulch, or perhaps decorative bark or pebble. There is

a wide selection of products available in the Daltons range.

For more advice, read our How to Grow Guides at www.daltons.co.nz/home-gardening/how-to-guides

Bulbs are a

superb way to

add springtime

fragrance and

colour to your

garden after a long

winter. Plant different

varieties to give variations in height and colour. Always label

where the bulbs are in the garden so they are not damaged or

accidently dug up when dormant over winter.

Strawberries crop freely on

one and sometimes twoyear-old

plants, and then

they should be removed.

Strawberries grow best

in fertile soils, and beds

should be raised to ensure

good drainage. Space new

plants 150-200mm apart,

on mounds up to 200mm

level.

Autumn is the time to

lift and divide any perennials

where overcrowding

has occurred. This involves

trimming any old growth

back to ground level, digging

up, dividing and then

replanting where required.

Not all perennials require

this treatment and therefore

can remain undisturbed

for many years.

that is warmer and

Gourmet delights on Emerald Princess

• By Mike Yardley

LOSING WEIGHT while

on-board an ocean cruise is a

forlorn goal.

Virtuously though, I circumnavigated

the promenade deck

of the Emerald Princess so many

times, I felt as if I’d walked my

way to Tasmania. All the more

reason to succumb to the great

slate of culinary salivation bursting

forth.

The old-faithfuls can be found

throughout the ship, from the

billowing buffet ballast at Horizon

Court, to the more formal a

la carte dining rooms of Boticelli,

Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Cheap and cheerful snacks

abound, whether it’s a slice or

three of poolside pizza from

Prego Pizzeria, hamburgers and

hot dogs at Trident Grill or sweet

servings on a whim from Scoops

ice cream bar.

Generously studded with 13

dining venues, it’s the specialty

dining experiences that lure the

gastronomes for a sense of culinary

discovery, flavourful fun and

design finesse.

The headliner is Share by Curtis

Stone. But my first stop was The

Salty Dog, a playful gastropub

cheerily garlanded in Union Jack

bunting. It’s the share-plates experience

that you should plump for,

AWARD-WINNER: Curtis Stone’s small plates menu caters for Australasian tastes. (Right) – Calamari frites at The Salty Dog.

whereby for an $18 cover charge,

you can select two gourmet plates

from the cravable menu, spanning

melt-in-your-mouth lobster

mac and cheese to wild caught

calamari frites.

Another unmissable gastronomic

encounter can be found at

the premium seafood, steak and

chop house, Crown Grill.

I started with chilean sea

bass and brioche-breaded king

prawns, before hitting the meat.

The globally-sourced range of

premium chops elicited a patriotic

pick on my part, opting for the

New Zealand double lamb chops

in rosemary essence with garden

fresh vegetables. Divine.

The piece de resistance is the

stirring six-course degustation

fine dining affair at Share. With

supreme ocean views over the

ship’s wake, the fresh, instantly

agreeable and homely design

elements mark a huge departure

from the standard cruise ship

aesthetic.

Decorative curios, books and

photos from Curtis’ personal collection,

add to its informal ambience.

A star feature is the sweeping

communal table tailor-made

for sharing food, while exquisite

hand-blown glass pendants,

etched with words like family,

togetherness and travel, dangle

above the table.

The award-winning Melbourne-born

chef who has made

quite a splash in Hollywood,

has crafted a small plates menu

specifically for Australasian tastes.

There are scallops, lightly

seared with a sesame and chickpea

puree, lamb loin matched

with harissa scented couscous

and steelhead trout lying in a

white wine beurre blanc.

The six-course experience

traverses starters, salads, pasta,

seafood, meat with a final flourish

reserved for dessert.

A selection of Curtis Stone

dishes are now served in the main

dining rooms across the entire

fleet of 18 Princess ships.

FAST FACTS

•Princess Cruises operates

a series of Australasian

and South Pacific cruises,

with five ships currently

home-ported down under.

In April, Emerald Princess

will reposition across the

Pacific to commence her

Bowers Builders

Renovations and house levelling has

long been a speciality of Bowers Builders.

Their team of five builders has 90 years

of collective experience in the industry,

with owners Johnnie and Amanda directly

involved in the management of every

project.

“We will take on the jobs that are outside

the box – nothing is too hard,” say Amanda,

who meets all new clients with Johnnie to

talk over their specific building situation.

“Once we start work on the job our client’s

hardest decision should just be choosing the

paint colour.”

Clear and honest communication is

integral to their business, with all work

completed to a very high standard that will

last over time. From a new garage floor that

is complicated due to land conditions, an

almost complete renovation of an inner city

cottage, to demanding hill sites that require

helicopter access, Amanda and Johnnie

work together to come up with a realistic

solution for all involved.

They are well used to working with a

range of agencies and specialists such as

structural and geotechnical engineers, and

have reliable sub-contractors to complete

any electrical, plumbing, complex brick

work and roofing work.

“We say that anything can be done – some

things just take longer than others,” says

Amanda.

HOW TO PLAY

It’s like sudoku: each

vertical and horizontal

line has to contain

the numbers 1-6, and

the numbers can’t be

repeated in any row or

column.

But it’s sudoku with a

twist: The numbers in

each heavily outlined

set of squares, called

cages, must produce the

number in the top corner.

For example, 5+ means

the numbers add up to 5,

9x means the numbers

multiply to equal 9.

TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the

same line or row.

Dropping Shaun Johnson would be pointless

• By Michael Burgess

SHAUN JOHNSON remains

one of the Warriors biggest

conundrums – but dropping him

is not the answer. Especially not

at the moment.

NSW State of Origin coach

Laurie Daley is the latest to call

for it, suggesting on Monday that

Johnson should be benched or

dropped from the squad altogether,

as a reality check to “get

the best out of him”.

In some ways, it’s curious

coming from Daley; he was

a legendary player, but hasn’t

marked himself as the best judge

of halves talent as a coach, using

five different players in the

No 7 jersey for NSW over four

seasons.

But Daley has the right sentiment,

in that he wants Johnson

to reach his potential, so he can

“take his game to the next level”.

But dumping Johnson at the

moment – even for one game –

would be pointless. The 26-yearold

can be a source of frustration

Latest Christchurch news at www.

at the Warriors, and his status

as the No 1 earner at the club

makes him an obvious target.

In terms of play-making and

organisation, he’s not comparable

to Johnathan Thurston, Cooper

Cronk, Daly Cherry-Evans or

Mitchell Pearce – and maybe

never will be.

But he has improved in that

area and is the best play-maker

the Warriors have got. That situation

may change in a few months

if Kieran Foran is fit and firing,

but at the moment there is no

Thursday March 30 2017

better option to run the team.

Johnson is also a game-breaker,

and his mercurial talents

could lift the Warriors out of

their current malaise. Across 129

NRL games, he averages almost

one try every two games, including

plenty of match-winning

efforts, and has 111 try assists.

He’s also been durable and was

the only Warrior to figure in all

24 games last season.

But there are definitely some

unresolved issues with Johnson.

He’s still prone to untimely errors,

more than most of his NRL

halfback peers. And Johnson, for

whatever reason, doesn’t always

stamp his mark on matches.

Johnson does need to be challenged,

and the ideal scenario

may emerge in a few months,

with Foran playing every week

and Ata Hingano and Mason

Lino pushing their case to be in

first grade.

The Warriors go up against the

Titans on Sunday at 4pm at Mt

Smart Stadium.

Club rugby opens with

grand-final rematch

• By Gordon Findlater

SATURDAY’S opening round

of the Hawkins Cup at Linfield

Park will see a rematch of last

year’s trophy grand-final.

New Brighton and Lincoln

University were the two top

teams last year. New Brighton

claimed the round-robin Hawkins

Cup by one point over their

rivals, but Lincoln had the final

say, defeating the seasiders 48-12

in the Hawkins Trophy grandfinal.

The two teams will have a

different look to the sides which

turned out at Rugby Park in July.

New Brighton face a tough

task if they’re to have any chance

of defending the Hawkins Cup

after being dealt a series of cruel

injury blows. They will be without

a large chunk of their forward

pack, which was regarded

as one of the best last season.

Flankers Billy Harmon and

Troy Mangan are both out

for the season after undergoing

shoulder reconstructions.

Hooker Nathan Vella is also out

for the campaign after breaking

his arm while playing for the

Crusaders Knights, while lock

Joe Stewart will miss the season

with a back injury. Midfield

backs Brett Mather and Rhys

Keith are also expected to miss a

large chunk of the season.

“We’re battling a wee bit, it’s

going to be quite a testing season

for us,” said New Brighton

coach Scott Pawson.

Lincoln will be without the

likes of Jordie Barrett and Jack

Goodhue. Last year, they were

regulars for the club side, but

have since gone on to become

Super Rugby regulars.

Pawson believes whatever

line-up Lincoln put out will be a

tough one to overcome.

“You know they’re going to

have young guys with huge potential

each year,” he said.

All six opening round games

will take place at Linfield Park.

Round one

Christchurch v Sumner,

1pm; HSOB v Shirley, 1.15pm;

Linwood v Sydenham,

Siblings team up on court

TWO SETS of brothers can win

their fourth straight premier

Canterbury interclub title for

Cashmere with a win over

Elmwood on Saturday.

Meredith brothers James, Matt

Johnny and Tim have made a

habit of dominating the local

interclub competition. They have

been the core of the Cashmere

team which has won three consecutive

titles.

“This is what we get up for

every year. It should be a great

atmosphere at the club on Saturday,”

said James Meredith.

Cashmere and Elmwood will

meet in the final, which is set to

be a close encounter. The two

met twice during the roundrobin,

taking one win a piece.

Elmwood won 4-2 (matches) at

Cashmere in October. However,

Cashmere won 5-1 at Elmwood

last month.

Form would suggest that

Cashmere already have two

matches in the bag. Since returning

Codie Taylor is standing out

on in an industrious Crusaders

pack. His lineout throwing

is accurate, he has scored a

try and makes his tackles as

the dominant rake in the jobsharing

role with Ben Funnell.

effectively in his average of 72

minutes on the field, the most

Super Rugby.

However, his Achilles Heel is

his lineout throwing, with the

per cent. If he wants to challenge

Taylor, he will need to up that.

Hika Elliot is performing solidly

Toyota Highlander

gets major makeover

• By Ross Kiddie

TOYOTA New Zealand has

facelifted its family-friendly

Highlander.

The large sport utility vehicle

has fresh frontal treatment,

a new powertrain,

and safety upgrades across

the range.

The Highlander is the

first Toyota to adopt an

advanced 3.5-litre V6 engine

producing significant

gains in power and torque

– an increase of 17kW (to

218kW) and 13Nm (to

350Nm) respectively –

over the outgoing model.

Paired with a new direct

shift eight-speed automatic

transmission, the new ratios

deliver improved acceleration

and overtaking ability.

“Highlander has become

established as a firm Kiwi

favourite and the latest

improvements deliver more

of everything families and

fleets want,” says Spencer

Morris, Toyota New Zealand’s

general manager of

product.

“We’ve increased performance,

improved fuel

economy, added additional

safety features and given it a

fresh look.”

The Highlander’s extensive

safety appointments,

which see it achieve a

five-star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program

rating across the range,

are paramount for around

town driving during the

busy working week just as it

is for weekend and holiday

adventures. Knowing this,

ADDING TO New

Zealand’s ever-increasing

choice in light commercial

vehicles, LDV will launch

a double-cab utility vehicle

in July.

Simply titled T60, the

new ute will be available

in two specifications, both

four-wheel-drive and the

choice of automatic or

manual transmission. Twowheel-drive

models will

land towards the end of the

year.

According to LDV, the

specification levels are

comfort and luxury, both

receive leather trim and

high levels of fitment for

both convenience and

safety.

The T60 is powered by a

2.8-litre turbocharged diesel

engine which is rated at

Toyota has applied additional

safety technology

to the entire Highlander

range:

The Limited gains the

Toyota Safety Sense package

consisting of the precrash

safety system with

automatic braking, high

speed dynamic radar cruise

control, lane departure alert

with steering assistance and

automatic high beam.

The Limited also has

two front parking sensors

to complement the four

rear parking sensors (available

on all models) and the

addition of a rear cross traffic

alert to the existing blind

spot monitor.

• Emergency stop signal

and trailer sway control has

been added to all models.

Inside, the 2017 Highlander,

GX and GXL

models gain a 4.2in colour

110kW and 360Nm. Both

gearboxes are six-speed

units and each operates

alongside a low ratio transfer

case.

Prices for the T60 will

be announced closer to its

launch here but it is expected

to be below $40,000.

LDV, formerly Leyland-

multi-information display

while the GXL receives a

larger 8in audio display

and now features satellite

navigation with SUNA traffic

alerts.

The Limited now has a

panoramic view monitor –

which provides the driver

with a live 360deg bird’s-eye

view around the vehicle to

see potential obstacles from

all angles and rain-sensing

wipers.

All vehicles have a sliding

second row seat, while the

third row has a 60:40 split

to increase luggage capacity,

offering both practicality

and flexibility for busy

families.

The Highlander is priced

at – GX 4WD V6, eightspeed

automatic, $63,490;

GXL 2WD, $66,490; GXL

4WD, $70,490; Limited

4WD, $81,490.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER: Significant gains in power

outputs with greater fuel efficiency.

LDV T60: Soon available in both two and fourwheel-drive

variants.

Lake Motor Distributors.

The company is also the

While renovating the interior of

your home creates a comfortable living

environment and improves its re-sale

potential, the outside of the property

is equally important. Remember, first

impressions count!

Creating an attractive outdoor

environment may involve landscaping,

plantings, decks, pergolas, garaging,

fencing, paths, entrance and driveway, in

addition to the exterior decoration of the

house itself. However, be careful not to

over-capitalise on elaborate landscaping,

if a simple make-over can achieve a

desirable effect.

Draw up plans and a budget for the

areas you plan to re-develop. Ensure any

additional structures such as garaging,

decks, retaining walls and fences have the

required permits and seek advice on the

ideal building materials and methods.

Planting

Discuss with your local garden centre

or nursery which plants will best suit the

size sun and situation of your section and

don’t design a labour intensive garden if

your lifestyle won’t allow you the time to

look after it!

Fences and Gates

These should provide privacy and

security, while also allowing access to

the property for visitors. Try to choose

fence and gate styles that complement

the age and style of your home. Consider

additional aspects such as light, cost,

Landscaping

maintenance, traffic noise and street

appeal when making your selection.

Entrance

The entrance to your house should be

a focal point to welcome visitors, provide

easy access and visually link the inside

and outside aspects of the property.

Whether a traditional verandah, a glass

porch, canvas canopy, pillared portico

or simply an attractive front door and

steps, ensure the colours, shape, style and

surfaces and in keeping with the original

architecture.

Decks, Patios and Courtyards

The New Zealand climate has always

encouraged exterior extensions to the

house whether a colonial verandah,

timber deck, paved patio or European

courtyard. Screened for shelter and

privacy they are attractive “outdoor

rooms” for recreation, entertaining and

outdoor dining and a sure way to enhance

the value of almost any home.

Garages and Carports

Depending on the age of your home,

garage space may be a problem is there

is insufficient access to the side or rear of

the house. It may be possible to construct

a garage or carport close to the street

frontage. In order not to detract from

the visual appeal of the property, it is

important that the dimensions, design

and materials be in keeping with the

existing house. Skillful landscaping and

planting can “soften” the impact.

There has never been a better time to look at

investing in the Oamaru property market! During

the last few months, real estate in the region

has seen a surge in the number of properties

being listed and sold, with some great options in

investment to be found.

Oamaru, is made up of four main suburbs:

Oamaru (central suburb), Oamaru North,

Holmes Hill and South Hill. Average values have

grown relatively comparatively across these

main suburbs and properties are selling, on

average, in about two months.

With a lot of media time in recent weeks, after

data was released showing Oamaru as the fourth

most-viewed New Zealand location on property

website Juwai, we have received a multitude of

calls from out-of-towners who are interested in

investing in property in, or moving to, the North

Otago region.

With a shortage of rentals available, investors

are seeing great returns for what they already

own, and the time is right to increase investment

portfolios. On the other hand, many folk are

also looking at making the move to our region

as they’re seeing the many benefits our lifestyle

here has to offer.

To have a chat about the local

property market, give me a call!

Make The Move To Oamaru!

The Waitaki district is definitely on a roll at the

moment, and that roll looks set to continue

for quite some time yet! With agriculture,

manufacturing and tourism growing strongly

through investment and promotion, Waitaki is

attracting a lot of attention.

Lonely Planet has called Oamaru, “the coolest

town in New Zealand,” and that is a title we are

proud of. Our Council is working hard with our

community to make our district an even more

amazing place.

With so many wonderful attributes going for us,

from our natural environment through to our

built heritage, our eclectic arts and music scene,

and growing economy, we really have a place

with an amazingly positive future.

I’m proud of the sustainable growth we are

experiencing. We are improving opportunities

for our local people, and welcoming a steady but

manageable stream of new people to the area.

They are coming for better lifestyles, good jobs,

business opportunities, and in some cases to

retire. We are a friendly town and a welcoming

district.

just a phone call away.
