as planned

Timely reminder of ‘one small step’

• By Julia Evans

FIFTY YEARS ago mobile

phones and Facebook didn’t

exist, music was on vinyl not

Spotify, and man had just

landed on the moon.

It was Monday, July 21, 1969,

and Lyttelton’s Fred Tunnicliffe

worked at The Christchurch Star.

Closing in on the 50th anniversary

of United States astronauts

Neil Armstrong and Buzz

Aldrin landing on the moon in

July, Mr Tunnicliffe’s collection

of posters has surfaced.

He kept the four posters,

which were placed outside

shops for four days after the

landing.

“Why wouldn’t I keep them?

. . . it was an amazing part of

my life,” Mr Tunnicliffe said.

ANZAC DAY services across the

Bay Harbour News area will go

ahead.

Banks Peninsula RSA president

Jim Coubrough said the Akaroa

and Little River services were never

cancelled in spite of media reports

saying they were.

“There was a misunderstanding

but that is not important, the important

thing is that they are going

ahead,” he said.

Canterbury rural area commander

Inspector Peter Cooper

said there was unlikely to be a police

presence at any of the services

across the peninsula.

“There are over 60 events and we

just can’t do them all,” he said.

However, Inspector Cooper did

not feel that any services needed to

be cancelled.

“All of our discussions with organisers

have been to continue but

just be aware that we won’t be able

to be there.”

Both services will also receive

support from the city council.

“We will continue to provide

previously agreed support services

for both the Little River and

Akaroa services as we have done in

the past,’ said city council civic and

international relations manager

Matt Nichols.

from the editor’s desk

GREAT TO see Anzac Day services will go

ahead (page 1).

There has been a lot of confusion across

Canterbury, and more specifically for the

Bay Harbour News area, over what services

might be cancelled.

Police say they need to have a presence at events this year

because of the mosque terror attacks. You have to applaud police

for that.

But it would have been a travesty if services and parades were

cancelled, so a good outcome all-round.

Those men and women who have served New Zealand deserve

to be honoured.

We have another snapshot into the past also on page 1 today –

newspaper posters from the moon landing in July 1969. A lot has

happened in the 50 years since.

Buses new problem in Akaroa

• By Louis Day

A GROUP OF apartment

owners in Akaroa are embroiled

in another dispute with the city

council – but this time it is not

over toilets.

The unconsented temporary

toilets at Britomart Reserve,

which the Bruce Waterfront

Apartments owners

threatened to take

legal action over,

were removed on

Monday at the

end of the cruise

ship season. The

city council failed

to gain resource

consent for the

placement of the

portacom toilets.

But the body

corporate is now

getting advice from

lawyer Prudence

Steven on the

Thomas

buses which park outside the

apartment building.

A body corporate spokesman

said the apartment owners were

not consulted before a “bus

transfer station” was set up on

Beach Rd outside the building.

“There are usually six (buses)

parked outside there in the

morning from as early as 6.30am

and they arrive with their

PARKED UP: The Bruce Waterfront Apartments (inset) body

corporate is in a dispute with the city council over buses

parking outside its building.

engines running, diesel fumes

wafting into the apartments

and of course when they are

jockeying into position they

are beeping and honking while

people are trying to sleep and

then they let the air brakes go,”

he said.

The spokesman said the buses

have been an issue for about

eight years since cruise ships

started visiting Akaroa. ​

City council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas does not believe the

buses are parking illegally. He

said the city council followed all

appropriate procedures when

allowing the buses to park there.

“The parking restriction

alteration for the temporary

coach parks is authorised

through the acceptance of a

temporary traffic management

plan submitted on behalf of the

cruise ship agent,” he said.

However, the body corporate

wants the buses to park at the

Akaroa Recreation Ground.

This could mean cruise ship

passengers would have to walk

1.3km from the main wharf to

reach their bus.

Akaroa Village Inn owner

Darren Angus said this would

have a negative impact on the

local economy.

His business is located next to

the apartment building.

“Business owners on this end

of town make a lot of money

from the buses, the coffee

shops, the restaurants, the

souvenir shops. If they were all

moved from this end of town,

half of Akaroa would suffer

dramatically because people

would not be hanging around

this end as much,” he said.

He said the buses had little

impact on his guests.

“I have only received one

complaint in the last four

months.”

Tug Lyttelton’s licence

too late for passenger

cruises this season

• By Louis Day

TUG LYTTELTON has been

given the all-clear to carry

passengers.

However, it has come too late

for the 112-year-old vessel to hold

a passenger cruise this season.

The tug has been issued its

certificate of survey, which is a

subset of requirements for the

passenger service licence.

Tug Lyttelton Preservation

Society head stoker Mike Bruce

said the first passenger cruise

in more than three years would

happen in October at the start of

next season.

“I’m frustrated it took so long

but at the same time absolutely

thrilled that we can take her out

and enjoy her. That’s what it is all

about, getting out in the sea, the

feeling of camaraderie you get

on board with the crew and your

mates,” he said.

The passenger cruise was

originally scheduled to take

place in December but was

pushed back to January and then

February and then to next season

due to delays with the passenger

service licence.

The preservation society is now

struggling financially as it has not

held a passenger cruise in more

than three years.

“We are under extreme

pressure, we are going for some

grants, some of the members are

supporting us, but we have just

got a bill for our public liability

insurance for $6000, we just don’t

have the money to pay for it.”

The hull of the vessel also needs

repainting, which is expected to

cost about $20,000.

FUNDING: An artist’s impression of the planned Akaroa Health Centre, which may be paid for

through a targeted rate.

Majority of Akaroa supports

health centre targeted rate

AN ANALYSIS of public

submissions suggests the

majority of Akaroa ratepayers

are willing to pay a targeted

rate to fund the new Akaroa

Community Health Centre.

The Akaroa Community

Health Trust asked city council

to provide it with a grant of up

to $1.3 million and suggested

the city council recover the

money through a targeted rate

on all properties within the

Akaroa subdivision of the Banks

Peninsula Ward.

The targeted rate would be

an annual fixed charge which

ratepayers would have to pay on

top of their normal rates.

The city council has spent

the past few weeks consulting

residents in the Akaroa and Bays

area about the proposed targeted

rate.

In that time 811 submissions

have been received, with 74

per cent in support of paying a

targeted rate.

Twenty-five per cent of the

submissions opposed paying a

targeted rate and one per

cent did not indicate a

preference.

Submitters were also asked

if they would prefer to pay the

targeted rate for a four or 10-year

period.

Fifty-three per cent of the

submitters said they would

prefer a four-year period,

while 35 per cent indicated

they would prefer a 10-year

period. The remaining 12

per cent did not indicate a

preference.

Taylors, Sumner lifesavers awarded for rescue

TAYLORS MISTAKE and

Sumner surf life saving clubs

received the national rescue of

the month award on Thursday.

The award recognises operational

excellence by surf lifeguards

around New Zealand.

The winners receive a $500

BP gift card and a citation, and

become finalists in the BP rescue

of the year award.

The award was given to a combination

of Taylors Mistake and

Sumner lifeguards for a rescue

they performed in January.

On January 3, lifeguards

responded to a call that a young

male had fallen off the cliff face

at Taylors Mistake beach.

Eight lifeguards from Taylors

Mistake responded, with assistance

from Sumner Surf Life

Saving Club, to make sure the

person had the best chance of

survival in spite of being in a

critical condition after a 10m fall

onto rocks near the beach.

THIS IS what the new Taylors

Mistake Surf Life Saving clubrooms

will look like.

Club president Ken Jones was

hopeful work on the $3 million

project would start by the end of

the year.

“If we can do it earlier we will but

we are reliant on a smooth process

with the council on the approval of

the building consent application,”

he said.

Working drawings for the new

clubhouse are currently being designed

which will be submitted for

building consent.

The new building will be built in

place of the old one which will be

demolished.

The old clubhouse was red-stickered

including Kate Suter, Melissa

Patterson, Eden Cotter and Tom

Denman also launched their

inflatable rescue boat to assist,

however, due to the low tide,

lifeguards were able to reach the

patient on foot over the rocks.

The team from Taylors Mistake

then worked quickly with

paramedics, police, the local rescue

helicopter and an off-duty

nurse to stabilise the patient

allowing him to be winched

away from the rocks and incoming

tide, onto the beach, before

being airlifted to hospital.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand

Southern Region manager Chris

Jeffery said this was another

example of the wide range of

Fire rages, homes at risk

skills volunteer surf lifeguards

have, particularly the advanced

first aid skills that make

them “valuable assets to the

community, even away from the

beach.”

“The surf lifeguards that

responded to this rescue are

some of the most experienced

at Taylors [Mistake]. They have

invested a lot of their own time

upskilling both in lifeguarding

abilities and first aid, and we

couldn’t have had better people

on scene to help,” he said.

At the time of the rescue, police

had high praise for the lifeguards

involved, and made special mention

of their skills, including the

ability to clear a safe landing area

for the helicopter and the way

they integrated their first aid expertise

into the response without

requiring guidance.

The Taylors Mistake Surf

Life Saving Club also took out

second place in conjunction

with the Sumner club where

they were awarded an additional

$300 of BP gift cards for another

rescue which was completed in

January.

Work on clubrooms likely to start at end of year

earthquake rendered its previous

stop-gap repairs unsafe.

Since then the club has had to

operate out of three portacom

buildings.

The temporary facilities, which

cost the club about $95,000, include

a first aid room, a patrol and

administration room, and a smoko

room.

Mr Jones said the new clubrooms

would be a “healthier and cleaner

environment” than the temporary

facilities the club is currently operating

out of.

“At the moment you can’t have

the whole family come over whereas

we will have a facility where

everyone can be involved.”

Mr Jones said specific details for

the new building would become

clearer once the working drawings

were finalised.

Clock tower tenders

under evaluation

• By Louis Day

THE CITY council is

currently in the process of

evaluating tenders for the

repair of the Scarborough

Clock Tower.

“The evaluation team

will seek clarification of

tender information and

costs where required, prior

to determining if we have

received an acceptable

tender,” said city council

head of parks Andrew

Rutledge.

The city council wants

to appoint one contractor

to undertake the repairs of

the Scarborough and New

Brighton clock towers as

part of their cost-saving

strategy.

Scaffolding on the clock

tower in Sumner has been

up since February last year,

costing ratepayers $1500

per month.

This has been a source

of frustration for Sumner

residents.

Sumner Community

Residents’ Association

chair Tanya Michael

said they had received

conflicting information

over the repair of the clock

tower from the city council.

“We know of several

residents who also have

had confusing responses

to clock tower repair time

frames,” she said.

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board member Darrell

Latham said he was not

happy with how repairs

were progressing.

“We were advised by

the city council head of

parks Brent Smith in

February last year that

construction work to fix

the clock and tower would

commence in March or

April 2018. I am concerned

about the period of time

Mr Tunnicliffe said

and Neil Armstrong landing

“I painted it a long time

know what prompted me,”

he said.

“But it turned out better

than I thought.”

painted a series based

on the Christ Church

Cathedral before and after

the earthquakes.

Archeology Week: Story of Lyttelton

Fire rages, homes at risk

Archaeology Week runs

from April 27 to May 5. Over

the next two weeks, the

New Zealand Archaeological

Association will highlight

some of Lyttelton’s history.

Behind Lyttelton’s red

rock walls

With the reopening of the

Lyttelton-Sumner road, another

link has been restored in the

story of Lyttelton’s distinctive red

scoria retaining walls. Extensive

archaeological investigation of

the walls after the earthquakes is

filling in the picture further.

“The walls tell a rich story of

19th and early 20th-century

Lyttelton,” says Heritage New

Zealand area manager Christine

Whybrew.

In the early days, Lyttelton

was even more challenging to

get around than it is today. The

steep hillsides were cut by gullies

which were thick with mud in

wet weather. Early roads were

made by slicing a section out of

the upside of the hill. Landslides

were a problem.

One of the archaeology reports

quotes a Press article from

1920, probably about a site on

Brittan Tce: “A visit to the place

yesterday showed the road to be

in a very dangerous state. The

outside footpath and several feet

of the road have fallen down the

cliff face, and the area has been

roped off by the council staff …

unless the council is immediately

supplied with sufficient cement

to carry out the work there is

every prospect of a landslide on a

large scale taking place.”

Most of the early walls,

from the 1860s to 1919, were

built by hard labour prisoners

from Lyttelton Gaol, who used

rectangular or square blocks of

stone and laid them in rows.

“From post-quake archaeology

we know that many rocks were

cut to size on site, because a

number of the walls were backfilled

with scoria rubble off-cuts,”

Dr Whybrew said.

Later walls were constructed

in a random ‘crazy paving’

style, some by Great Depression

relief workers in the 1930s.

Unusually, one such wall was

back-filled with dozens of faulty

bricks. Archaeologists found

three different maker’s marks

on the bricks: “PW” for Prisk

and Williams, which operated

a quarry and brickworks in

Corsair Bay from at least 1874;

“P” for Prisk, which continued

to run the brickworks after

his partnership with Williams

ended; and a mysterious “JJ”. Did

this “JJ” perhaps take over after

Prisk stopped operating early in

the 20th-century? Speculation

suggests that the bricks came

from a brickyard clearance.

Post-quake, a massive effort

has seen many of the significant

walls within Lyttelton reclad

with locally-sourced red scoria

salvaged from walls which

collapsed in the earthquake or

were later deconstructed. These

include walls in London St,

Sumner Rd, Brittan Tce, Dublin

St, Coleridge Tce, Oxford St

and Voelas Rd. Canterbury St

and Rippon St remain on the

council’s priority list for red rock

resurfacing.

Heritage New Zealand said the

city council’s decision to source

the rock locally has ensured the

colour and texture is historically

accurate.

“Part of the hillside on Sumner

Rd was blasted to form a quarry

for red stone in the 1860s, and

we know there were at least

four quarries along the route by

1864,” said Dr Whybrew.

“In the 1890s, the Lyttelton

Borough Council actually gave

landowners free red scoria stone

from the Sumner Rd so that they

could build retaining walls on

private land facing a road.”

In the search for rock for

recladding, the council once

again turned to Sumner Rd:

“Staff on the road project worked

with stonemasons to identify

red rock and basalt of the right

quality, which had to be stored

until the re-engineered retaining

walls were ready,” said city

council senior planner Heather

Holder-Lunn.

Meanwhile, Lyttelton residents

themselves donated more than

400 sq m of red rock pieces in

the 2017 Great Lyttelton Red

Rock Hunt.

Walls in more detail

•Voelas Rd started as a private

road from Godley Quay. The

Lyttelton Borough Council took it

over in 1897. The name “Voelas” is

from the North Wales childhood

home of Charlotte, wife of John

Godley. The Press reported in

1863 that a proposal had been

accepted to build a wall around a

well in Voelas Rd using the hard

labour gang. This is likely to be

HISTORIC:

These

three

ceramic

jars were

found

behind a

wall in St

Davids St,

Lyttelton,

along with

fragments

of plates,

bowls, tea

cups and

saucers.

the wall near 19-27 Voelas Rd.

It was an ashlar-style wall more

than 70m long and up to 3m high.

The repair work exposed a

layer of brick at the top of the

wall in a few places, which

appears to be part of the original

footpath. The archaeologists

were able to identify the bricks

from a backwards “P” marked

on one of the bricks. They

concluded that the bricks

were probably made locally by

Lyttelton manufacturer, James

Prisk, in 1915 or later.

•Webb Lane was originally

a private road, and does not

appear in street directories until

1973. The road is named after

the prominent Lyttelton family.

Three Webb brothers arrived

in Lyttelton in 1859. They were

fruit dealers and served on

the Lyttelton council, two of

them as mayor. One of the next

generation, Eric Norman Webb,

was the magnetician on the

1911-14 Australasian Antarctic

Expedition (led by Mawson). The

red scoria wall on the corner of

Webb Lane and Voelas Rd has

now been dated to the late 19thcentury.

•Park Tce was originally part

of the current Governor’s Bay

Rd, and only named separately

in 1921. Cressy Tce was part

of the Old Governors Bay Rd

that was formed in 1865. The

red scoria wall on the corner of

Park and Cressy Tce is in 20thcentury

‘crazy paving’ style. The

quake repairs revealed unusual

back-fill – dozens of old bricks

that had warped, cracked and

bloated during firing.

•St Davids St. The

deconstruction of the wall outside

59-61 St Davids St revealed 60

separate items that archaeologists

catalogued. These were typical

of 19th and 20th-century sites in

Lyttelton and included broken

ceramics, mostly from plates

and bowls; pieces of glass, such

as black beer bottles and pickle

jars; rusty metal, including a

1910 English halfpenny, bones

butchered from sheep and cattle;

shellfish remains; and part of a

smoking pipe.

The archaeologist concluded

that the items were not dumped

by a single person at the same

point in time. The report states

“the assemblage appears to be

an accumulation of material

over time. Given the scatter of

the artefacts within the natural

clay, it is likely the artefacts

were discarded as a result of

opportunistic rubbish dumping

activity by the occupants of 61

St David St in the garden and

backfilling activity during the

construction of the retaining wall.”

•Brittan Tce is one of

Lyttelton’s original streets,

first mentioned in newspapers

in 1852. It was named after

William Guise Brittan, one of

the founders of the Canterbury

settlement and commissioner

of Crown lands. The wall near

the eastern end of Brittan Tce,

holding up the beginning of

Cressy Tce, was probably built by

the hard labour gang, and had

been extended at some stage.

•Ripon St is one of Lyttelton’s

original streets and appears on

the 1849 plan of Lyttelton drawn

by Edward Jollie.

The wall towards the west

end of the street was probably

built in, or after, 1919. The

scoria blocks vary in size from

50-500mm in width and height.

These blocks were concreted to

the stone rubble backfill behind

the wall. The fill is red scoria and

basalt, probably off-cuts from

shaping the blocks on site.

Noises that you

may not know damage

your hearing

advERToRial

Hearing is an important part of everyday life, yet most

people don’t realise when they are damaging their ears.

our new Ferrymead Clinic

Causes of hearing loss include infections,

ageing, and brain injury, but one of the most

common is noise exposure. Noise-induced

hearing loss (NIHL) can develop after one

occurrence of extreme noise exposure or after

listening to very loud sounds over time.

Everyone has tiny hair cells in their inner ear

(cochlea) that vibrate and send an electric

signal to the auditory nerve, allowing you to

hear. Different groups of hair cells interpret

different sound frequencies. Over time, if

enough of these hair cells are damaged or

broken, hearing loss results.

Here are ranges of sounds you probably didn’t

know could affect your hearing:

85 – 100 dB (It takes 6 to 8 hours before

causing damage)

• Heavy traffic

• Window air conditioner (close to you)

• Noisy bar

• Hair dryer

• Motorcycle

• Squeeze toy (close to ear)

• Subway car (passing)

• Music player at max volume

110 – 180 dB (It takes one to 30 minutes

before causing damage depending on level)

• Music concert (located near speakers)

• Thunder

• Emergency vehicle siren

• Balloon popping (close to ear)

• Rowdy stadium crowd

• Firecracker

• Safety airbag

• Jet plane take off

How to prevent hearing damage

The simplest way to avoid developing noiseinduced

hearing loss is to pay attention to

sound volume wherever you go. Listening

to levels below 85 dB can help you preserve

your hearing. If a sound is too loud, don’t stay

around long enough for it to cause damage.

When in doubt, you can always use hearing

protection.

If you’re worried that you may have a hearing

loss caused by noise exposure, you can call

House of Hearing, located on 987 Ferry Road

in Ferrymead.

We provide a wide range of hearing including;

• Hearing tests

• Hearing loss consultations

• a range of hearing aids

• Ear wax removal

• Hearing aid batteries

• Hearing aid servicing

• Tinnitus treatment

• occupational hearing screening; and

Preliminary

work starts on

school upgrade

WORK ON the Diamond Harbour

School upgrade is due to start this

week.

Contractors will be setting

out fencing and delivering site

buildings.

The actual construction work

will commence on April 29.

The school will be receiving a

new administration block and a

refurbished main teaching block

as part of the greater Christchurch

education renewal programme.

Construction is estimated to take

a year to complete.

On Friday there was a sod

turning ceremony, which marked

the beginning of the project.

Principal Jill Pears said the

new teaching block will give staff

the ability to employ a range of

different teaching methods.

“It will be slightly more open

plan so teachers can collaborate

more effectively and there will be

some wet spaces and a maker space,

where children can make stuff

using traditional tools and digital

tools, and there will be break-out

rooms, where children can work in

smaller groups,” she said.

Construction will lead to reduced

parking and drop-off access. Ms

Pears said the disruption would be

minimal.

Navigation safety

officer Gary Manch

delivers his final

column of the boating

season

Pirate’s Corner

HOMECOMING: Father and daughter enjoying time together after three

days apart.

Daddy’s home

WELL, I didn’t manage

that dreamed of sleep-in.

But after three nights

away from Vittoria and

Laura, even being forced

awake before sunrise in my

own bed felt good.

As I said in my last column,

I was away over the

weekend competing in the

dragon boat nationals at

Lake Karapiro (go Waimak)!

It was the longest

I’ve been away from Vittoria.

Although the break from

all-day, everyday parenting

was nice, I missed it like I

never thought I would.

On Friday night I woke

up in the wee hours just

freaking out that I couldn’t

find Vittoria or even hear

her. It took me a while to

chill out and remember

where I was.

Is this something that

will just happen now?

Luckily this is 2019 so I

could use video calling to

see the family each day.

It was really cute seeing

how excited Vittoria got

to see my face. She’d do

this little jiggle, smile and

giggle dance before getting

back to whatever she

was doing, throwing little

smiles my way while Laura

and I talked.

Eventually she would,

however, try and hang up

the call. I guess you can

have too much dad.

I thought she would just

about explode on Sunday

when I got home, but she

was way too engrossed in

the Wiggles when I got in

the door.

After her song finished

she started warming up to

me again and it wasn’t long

until she was back to being

cuddly and excited to be

around me.

I think out of the two

of them, Laura was most

excited to have me home.

The weekend had included

the unholy meeting of

arbitrary toddler routine

changes and the end of

VITTORIA

& Matt

daylight saving. Not to

mention poor weather.

Nothing like being

trapped indoors with a

grumpy toddler who woke

you up multiple times

overnight before deciding

4am was playtime.

My wife is a saint.

On Tuesday bubs and I

reconnected on a daddy/

daughter day with some

friends over from Australia

at the petting zoo Arion

Farm.

Nothing quite like being

chased by ducks and

having a sheep try and eat

your hand, to rekindle the

spark of daddy’s-girl-ness.

•Former Bay Harbour

News journalist

Matt Salmons has

become a stay-athome

dad. We follow

his journey weekly.

THE SUMMER period

has been a reasonably busy

one, as we have had great

weather and therefore the

waterways throughout the

region have been busy.

Thankfully, complaints

have been down a little

from previous years but

still not to the level I would

like, which is none.

Our enforcement officers

have been out and about

providing guidance and

this was received well by

our boating community.

As I have previously

mentioned 1000 times, we

are not the anti-fun police,

but we do want you to

behave responsibly on the

water; it’s a simple request,

really.

The requirement to identify

your boat (Navigation

Safety Bylaw 2016 part 20)

has been reasonably well

accepted and we are into

the 60 per cent area for

compliance, so we are on

track.

Many thanks to those

who have complied, and

I am sure those who have

not will be contacting a

local signwriter to get their

vessels sorted prior to next

season.

Also, please remember

to destroy and dispose of

the old kapok life jackets;

they should be replaced

with new ones.

I will not be writing

articles during the winter

months; another member

of the harbourmaster’s

office will fill the void. This

will give you a break from

me, and I will restart in

October at the beginning

of the boating season.

One thing I would like

you to think about is

what do you want from

my monthly column. Do

you want specific advice,

questions answered, or to

examine problems and issues

in a particular area?

My view is that while I

can sit down each month

and ramble on, having a

guide as to what you want

means I can provide a

better article for you. So,

email me during winter at

gary.manch@ecan.govt.

nz and I will address any

issues during the next

boating season.

On that note, please be

careful out there; look after

each other on and off the

water. Kia kaha

the water but

make sure

is new.

A MULTI-MILLION dollar

electricity upgrade for Lyttelton,

Corsair Bay and Cass Bay has

moved a step closer.

A $3 million 2.2km electricity

cable was pulled through

Lyttelton Tunnel on Monday

night.

The new cable which consists of

three separate single core cables

has a power rating of 10 megawatts,

three megawatts greater

than the current average demand

which allows capacity for growth.

Orion’s general manager of

infrastructure Steve Macdonald

said the cable pull was the largest

in Orion’s history and possibly

New Zealand’s.

Mr Macdonald expected the

new cable to be fully operational

by the end of next month.

The project is the culmination

of three years of planning by

Orion to address reliability and

resilience issues with the power

supply to Lyttelton.

EASY DOES IT:

of the cable

as it emerges

from the

mouth of

the Lyttelton

Tunnel.

Power cable through tunnel

The new 11kV electricity cable

will run in tandem with the two

existing 11kV cables which run

over the Port Hills.

“The lines over the hill are

vulnerable to weather,

vegetation and pests. With the

new cable we have alternatives

to keep the power on,” Mr

Macdonald said.

“It gives us the ability to grow

and in the event of a failure we

can still supply residents and the

port with electricity.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Full steam ahead for

wastewater project

PROGRESS: The Lyttelton

Harbour Wastewater Project

has entered its fourth and

final stage.

THE $53 million Lyttelton

Harbour Wastewater Project has

entered its final phase.

The fourth stage of the wastewater

service upgrade involves

laying several kilometres of underground

pipes to connect both

the Lyttelton and Christchurch

wastewater systems.

Work is planned to start this

month.

The pipeline will run from the

Heathcote side of Tunnel Rd,

under Bridle Path Rd, Port Hills

Rd, Mauger Drive and Scruttons

Rd, before continuing under

the paddocks parallel to Tunnel

Rd, under the Heathcote River

and connecting to the Woolston

pump station in Alport Place.

From there, Lyttelton

Harbour’s wastewater will

be pumped through to the

Christchurch Wastewater Treatment

Plant in Bromley, ending

the routine discharge of treated

wastewater into the harbour.

City council city services

general manager David Adamson

said the Lyttelton Harbour

Wastewater Project is one of the

city council’s largest wastewater

projects.

“In spite of the scale of this

project, people won’t see much

of the constructed work as most

of the assets will be underground,”

he said.

“One of the more difficult

feats of engineering will involve

installing the section of pipeline

deep under the Heathcote River

by using directional drilling

technology to create a tunnel

and dragging more than 400m

of pipeline through the space.”

Multiple construction crews

will be working on the project

to ensure minimum time on the

road and disruption to residents.

Access will still be available

to homes and businesses, with

“start work” notices being

delivered closer to the time that

the construction crews are onsite.

New uniforms for Heathcote

Valley School netballers

• By Louis Day

HEATHCOTE VALLEY School

netballers are raring to go this

season in their brand new

uniforms.

The new gear was given to

the school as part of the ANZ

netball grants programme,

which has reopened for the

upcoming season.

Heathcote Valley School

co-coach Tasmin Page said the

new gear has provided a massive

morale boost for the year 5 team.

“It was great, the kids all felt

heaps better about what they

were wearing. The new kits were

also a bit more practical than

the old ones, which were around

their knees,” she said.

ANZ head of sponsorship Sue

McGregor said over six years it

has given more than $700,000

to help teams and players all

over New Zealand achieve their

netballing dreams.

Last year a young netballer

with aspirations to be a sports

journalist was given the

opportunity to be the official

ANZ junior sports reporter and

interview the Silver Ferns.

A struggling goal shoot also

had a visit from netball legend

Irene van Dyk to give her a

confidence boost.

•The grants are open to

teams and individuals of all

ages. Applications close on

September 24. To apply, visit

Cemetery Road

by Greg Iles

Successful journalist Marshall McEwan is forced to return home. His father is

dying, his mother is struggling to keep the family newspaper from failing, and

the town is in the midst of an economic rebirth that might be built upon crimes

that reach into the state capitol - and perhaps even to Washington. More

disturbing still, Marshall’s high school sweetheart, Jet, has married

into the family of Max Matheson, patriarch of one of the families

that rule Bienville through a shadow organization called the

Bienville Poker Club.

When archeologist Buck McKibben is murdered at a

construction site, Bienville is thrown into chaos. The ensuing

homicide investigation is soon derailed by a second crime that

rocks the community to its core. Power broker Max Matheson’s

wife has been shot dead in her own bed, and the only other

person in it at the time was her husband, Max. Stranger still, Max

demands that his daughter-in-law, Jet, defend him in court.

Without telling a soul, Marshall joins forces with Jet and begins digging into both

murders. With Jet walking the dangerous road of an inside informer, they soon

uncover a web of criminal schemes that undergird the town’s recent success. But

these crimes pale in comparison to the secret at the heart of the Matheson family...

Alice Hamilton loved being a mature-age student, but now she’s finished her

university degree she needs to find herself a career. But the job market is tough

and it doesn’t help that her partner David keeps reminding her about their sizeable

mortgage. When she’s offered a role in a major real estate agency, she jumps at

the opportunity. David is excited by her prospects in the thriving Melbourne housing

market, and Alice is pleased that she’ll be utilising her exceptional people skills. But

Alice quickly realises all is not as it seems. What is she doing wrong to be so out of

sync with her energetic boss, Carmel Gold, agent extraordinaire? Alice is determined

to make it work, but how much will it affect her values?

As everything starts to fall apart, a sudden visit home to the country town Alice

escaped years ago provides an unexpected opportunity to get some perspective.

Surrounded by people who aren’t what they seem, or have their own agendas, can Alice learn to ask for what she really

wants... on her own terms?

Holden’s big Acadia – born in the US

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

A STICKER with the message

“proudly built in Tennessee” is

something you don’t see often

on new vehicles sold in New

Zealand.

Sure, there have been a smattering

of US-built cars available

for NZ buyers, but they are few

and far between. However, there’s

a newcomer on the block, and

it represents much of the way

we view US cars, the seven-seat

Acadia is here and it’s big and

bold.

The Acadia is a large sport utility

vehicle that comes out of the

GMC stable, GMC is an off-shoot

of the giant General Motors conglomerate

that focuses primarily

on trucks and pick-ups. However,

the Acadia distances itself from

the ute market, it is built on a sophisticated

monocoque floorpan

with fully independent suspension,

lending itself to a refined

SUV which targets Toyota’s Highlander

as its main competition.

Under the bonnet sits a 3.6-litre

V6 petrol engine which is rated at

231kW and 367Nm, these healthy

outputs are realised tall in the rev

band at 6600rpm and 5000rpm

respectively. If you think these figures

look familiar, it’s pretty much

the same power plant that is fitted

to the range-topping ZB-series

Commodore. The Acadia also gets

the same transmission, it’s a ninespeed

unit that is characterised

by smooth shifts and ratios which

ease the load on the engine so that

respectable fuel economy can be

gleaned.

Because of its size, and weight

(2032kg), the Acadia needs as

much benefit in this department

as it can get. Holden rate it with

a 9.3-litre per 100km (30mpg)

combined cycle rating. By my

reckoning that’s achievable, the

test car was constantly listing

around 10.8l/100km (26mpg),

taking into consideration I did

a lot of around the city driving

which is never conducive to good

economy results.

On the highway the engine

lopes over gently at 1500rpm

at 100km/h in top gear, using

fuel at an instantaneous rate of

7.8l/100km (36mpg).

The Acadia is also a useful offthe-seal

traveller. It lands in both

two-wheel-drive and four-wheeldrive

variants. The test car was the

top spec – LTZ-V, and although

the driveline won’t get to places a

low ratio set-up will take you, the

HOLDEN ACADIA: Two or four-wheel-drive options.

mechanicals are perfect for low

grip situations such as the skifield

access road, tackling the tracks

leading into those high country

lakes, or taking the boat to the slipway.

For the record, the Acadia has

a 2000kg tow rating and a 203mm

ground clearance figure.

It also travels with compliant

suspension travel. Unlike US

vehicles of the past which have

been quite soft in the suspension,

the Acadia’s spring and damper

rates are definitely biased towards

moderate firming, yet comfort

isn’t compromised.

Pushed into a corner there is

just enough steering feel thanks to

beautiful Continental sport tyres,

and they are big at 235/55 x 20in.

There is a lot of rubber on the

road and that promotes a secure

feeling of attachment.

Power out of a corner is vivid.

The quad-camshaft engine is a

howler, it works through the rev

band freely but you don’t have to

have it singing to the red line to

get performance, the torque curve

is just broad enough so that it

utilises the mid-range.

However, if you like to have it

breathing freely for a highway

overtake for example, it hunts to

the red line willingly, there was

never a point where I thought

the wrong gear was selected, the

way it arranges those nine ratios

is very clever. On the subject of

performance, the Acadia buyer

can expect a standstill to 100km/h

time of around 7.8sec.

As mentioned, the Acadia

lands here in three specification

levels, each with the option of

four-wheel-drive. The entry-level

model lands at $49,990, while the

test car with its high grade trim

and 4WD sits at $71,990. For

that money it is comprehensively

• Price – Holden Acadia

LTZ-V, $71,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4979mm; width, 1916mm;

height, 1762mm

• Configuration – V6,

four-wheel-drive, 3649cc,

231kW, 367Nm, ninespeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.8sec

• Fuel usage – 9.3l/100km

equipped – and you’d expect

nothing less. It is very American

in the way it is trimmed and

it does get all the latest safety

technology that comes out of the

General Motors’ stable.

The Acadia makes no pretence

that it is genuinely American, its

styling is designed to capture attention,

and the luxury feel inside

takes me back to the best vehicles

that have come out of the States in

terms of build quality and comfort.

However, the Acadia also gets

the benefit of the down under

input. Prior to its release it was

tested vigorously across the Tasman

for our market. That development

shows, it is an involving,

spirited car that feels very good

to be in.

The Acadia won’t be for everyone,

but for those who want the

benefit of huge interior space and

strong engine performance, it’s

there in a part of market where

buyers don’t have comprehensive

choice.
