The Star Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Thursday February 15 2018 5 News Adams aims for top job • By Bridget Rutherford SELWYN MP Amy Adams has thrown her hat in the ring to become the National Party’s new leader. “I do believe I have the leadership skills to lead the party well, and I believe I am the best person for the job,” she announced yesterday. “It is absolutely my ambition and goal to win the 2020 election.” On Tuesday, Bill English announced his resignation. Bill English National’s caucus will decide who the new leader will be on February 27. Judith Collins and Simon Bridges revealed they would stand for the position yesterday morning, followed by Ms Adams, who was supported by fellow MPs Nikki Kaye, Maggie Barry, Tim MacIndoe and Chris Bishop. Ms Adams said Mr English was a “remarkable leader” and she did not want him to resign, but respected his decision. “We know we need to choose a leader who can take us into 2020.” At No 7 on National’s list, Ms Adams is serving her fourth term as Selwyn MP. In 2016, political publication Trans Tasman ranked her the Government’s best performer GOOD TIMES THIS SUMMER and a “quiet achiever” as justice minister. At yesterday’s announcement, Ms Adams said she believed she had “very strong support” in caucus. She wanted to stand because she loved New Zealand. She said she reflected values such as compassion and integrity and had proven she could “get things done.” Having grown up in Auckland and now living on a farm near Aylesbury, Selwyn, she has a unique blend of urban and rural experience, she said. “Since I entered Parliament in 2008, I’ve held 10 portfolios. I would like to think I’ve proven to have the ability to approach the hard issues.” Ms Kaye has ruled herself out of contention for both leader and deputy, while Paula Bennett has said she wants to regain the deputy position. Ms Adams said Ms Bennett had her “full support” to be deputy leader. Steven Joyce, Mark Mitchell and Jonathan Coleman have said they are undecided as to whether they would contest for leadership. Investigation into impact of Northern Corridor on traffic flows • By Julia Evans THE IMPACT the $240 million Northern Corridor will have on Cranford and Sherbourne Sts is being investigated. The city council has appointed an independent expert to manage the predicted downstream effect of an increase in traffic through St Albans and Edgeware into Bealey Ave as part of the major roading project. Cranford St will be extended to four lanes, which will narrow to two at McFaddens Rd. City council manager planning and delivery transport Lynette Ellis said as part of the Northern Arterial and Cranford St upgrade the city council has to undertake a Downstream Effects Management Plan. The independent expert, Shane Turner from traffic engineering firm Stantec, will assess how increased traffic will impact on the surrounding road network, Ms Ellis said.
