Just under 10,000 poured into the Lincoln Domain event to see a star studded day-long 16 Page glossy lift out line-up headed by Jimmy Barnes. But long queues to buy alcoholic beverages and the fact it sold out early sent festival-goers to social media to complain. Promoter David Parlane said more bars or a bigger bar would be in place for next year’s event. “It’s our second year in, we’ve learnt and we’ll improve,” he said. Apart from the beverage issues, Mr Parlane said the concert was a “blast.” “It was a massive day, a massive crowd, we put on some fantastic acts. It was a concert with some really great international acts that entertained just Pages 16-17 It was a ‘blast’ says promoter under 10,000, it was a bit of a blast.” “It was a great music concert. We are not a wine and beer festival, we’re a music concert, that’s what you come for and that’s what we run and we ran that extremely well,” he said. Planning was well under way for next year’s event, he said. www.selwyn.govt.nz Concern over quarry truck numbers • By Emily O’Connell ONE-HUNDRED-and-twenty-five truck movements every hour. That’s what Weedons and Templeton residents may face if the proposed quarry near their areas goes ahead. Fulton Hogan says the quarry, which will be on a 170ha section of land on Dawsons, Curraghs and Jones Rds, will be there for up to 40 years. The company told Western News it is anticipating 1500 truck movements in or out of the site a day. Templeton Residents’ Association chairman Garry Kilday is concerned about the large number of trucks on roads which are already busy. “Fifteen hundred will go past a specific point everyday over a 12- hour period. Now that’s 125 truck movements per hour,” he said. Fulton Hogan said the time and days the quarry would be open was part of its resource consent application, which the company won’t divulge yet. •Turn to page 8
