Bus concerns voiced • By Ashleigh Monk “THE STAFF and residents use the bus/and if it goes, they’re bound to cuss/what a loss for all of us/if the bus should go.” Recited to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus, these lyrics were sung by residents of Diana Isaac Retirement Village to Environment Canterbury. The residents have been fighting since March to have the No 44 bus stop at their village after Environment Canterbury decided to re-route the Orbiter which previously ran there. ECan said last month it would not re-route the No 44 through some residential streets, leaving the nearest bus stop 1km away. Representatives met with the residents on Wednesday to hear their concerns over the decision. ECan senior manager public transport Stewart Gibbon said was “very pleased” with the entertaining song. •Turn to page 8 CITY 2 2SURF Sunday 24 March 2019 with Les Mills Road report to address safety concerns • By Ashleigh Monk A PAPANUI roading and traffic report, one year in the making, will look at “safety concerns” on Sisson Drive. Sisson Drive was originally designed to be a cut-through street for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians in the area, but the report showed it was being used as a main road. The report suggests the speed limit should be reduced from 40km/h to 30km/h, and several road marking changes be implemented to mitigate risk. It will also detail traffic movements on Main North Rd, Harewood Rd, Sawyers Arms Rd and Sisson Drive. The report included proposals to install a pedestrian refuge on Sawyers Arms Rd, make alterations to some intersections and introduce more road markings in the area. The Papanui-Innes Community Board requested the report in December last year. Community board chairwoman Ali Jones said that while the report seemed to have taken a long time to be completed, this was not the case. •Turn to page 8 Hearing aids – the next generation.
