The school brought home six golds, a silver and a bronze during the two-day event at Lake Ruataniwha. Millie Knight and the Rangi Ruru girls under-19 four (above) won silver. The results are a good platform to build on ahead of the South Island secondary school championships and Maadi Cup in March. •Story and results, page 11 PHOTO: © STEVE MCARTHUR Residents may get wish for heavy vehicle restrictions • By Julia Evans THE LOCAL residents’ association may get its wish of having heavy vehicles restricted from some residential Fendalton roads. Based on “conversations and advice” from city council chief executive Karleen Edwards and a city council staff report which is going to the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board, some heavy vehicle restriction is likely around the Glandovey Rd area, city councillor Raf Manji said. But he said it would not be sensible to start “slapping bans” on all streets around Glandovey, Idris and Straven Rds. “We have to think about the impact it would have . . . and be reasonable,” he said. The Glandovey, Idris and Straven Residents’ Association has been trying to get heavy vehicles off Idris and Glandovey Rds since the intersection was upgraded in 2013. It is particularly concerned a cyclist or pedestrian will be injured or killed. The area has been used as a collector route by heavy vehicles following the earthquakes. •Turn to page 6 Bathroom & Shower Renovations Tile & grout Cleaning Re-grouting Grout Sealing & Re-colouring Replace Mouldy Silicone CALL TODAY 0800 247 688 befoRe afTeR $20 EAR WAX REMOVAL FREE by MICROSUCTION Hearing Test * ouse of earing
