About 120 students performed to a crowd of more than 150 in the Christ’s College auditorium for the annual event, which has been running for three years. The aim of the concert is to bring young musicians together for a positive musical experience working with and learning from each other. •Turn to page 15 No solution to traffic issues at Burnside intersection • By Jess Gibson THERE APPEARS to be no solution in sight to traffic congestion at the Greers Rd and Memorial Ave intersection. The Fendalton-Waimairi- Harewood Community Board has voted not to recommend to the city council that changes be made at the intersection outside Burnside High and Christ the King schools. Greers Rd is used by about 9000 vehicles in an average 12-hour week day, half of which travel southbound using the intersection. The city council’s $280,000 plan would have widened Greers Rd to create a shared left turn or “sharrow lane” for cyclists, vehicles and the Orbiter bus to ease congestion during peak traffic. The community board was given two options at a meeting last Monday. Option one was to remove the cycle lane and narrow the footpath fronting Christ the King School and option two was to do nothing. •Turn to page 5 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
