Your local paper - keeping our future generations informed HOSPITAL CAR PARKING CRISIS PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS Could Hagley Park be the solution? • By Gabrielle Stuart THE SOLUTION to Christchurch Hospital’s car parking crisis could be Hagley Park. The Star has learned, turning an area of Hospital Corner across the road from the hospital is a possibility and has been discussed informally by the Canterbury District Health Board. The parking situation at the hospital is in chaos, brought on by the central city rebuild and ongoing road works which take more off-street parking. Health board member Jo Kane said more parking was urgently needed. Hagley Park was an ideal location. She said the health board had discussed it informally but had not taken it further. “The only issue was it would leave us with nowhere to land the rescue helicopters,” she said. The CDHB has set aside land on Antigua St for a parking building, but it cannot be cleared until hospital services there can be moved to new buildings. That is set to take about three years. CDHB chief executive David Meates said parking at Hagley Park had been discussed but was “not an option” being formally considered. He would not give his view on the idea. A Development Christchurch report in January found up to 2000 extra car parks would be needed long-term, and closer to 3000 during the hospital rebuild. •Turn to page 4 Fujitsu Heat Pump at a HOt HOt Price Conditions Hot Hot Deal apply* on 8KW Heat PumP Model ASTG14LUCB 5.4kW Hi Wall Fujitsu ASTG24L 8 KW Heat Pump for Just $1,999 Six Year Warranty Fully Installed* $2,999 *Model ASTG14LUCB installed back to back, up to three metre pipe run and electrical supply within 6 metres.
