Cycleway

decision

riles up

residents

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FRUSTRATED residents have

been left feeling “ignored” after a

decision to construct a $38 million

cycleway along their street.

The South Express Major Cycle

Route was approved by the city

council’s infrastructure, transport

and environment committee last

week.

It will run from Hagley Park

through Riccarton, Upper

Riccarton, Sockburn, Hornby and

Templeton.

The contentious cycleway

has raised concerns with

organisations, including the

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association, Riccarton

Community Church and Lochee

Rd residents.

Lochee Rd resident Ron Greaves

said the committee is a “joke” and

residents have been ignored.

A petition with about 47

signatures opposing the cycleway

running down Lochee Rd was

presented to the committee last

week by resident Kurt Hewson.

Mr Hewson said he felt

“frustrated” going unheard and it

appeared the decision to have the

cycleway run through the road had

already been made before it was

approved.

Mega-facility survey ‘hard to answer’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SURVEY on the design of

the long-awaited Hornby megafacility

has been described as

“incredibly hard to answer.”

The city council is calling for

the community’s views on what

they would like to see in the design

of the $35.7 million Hornby

Library, Service

Centre and

South West

Pool.

It follows the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community

Board giving

Mark Peters

final approval

for the reclassification

and

changes to be made to Kyle

Park’s management plan to allow

for the facility to be built on the

land.

City council staff have asked

for residents to choose their top

four features they would like to

see in the design.

The city council has listed 13

options – these are an espresso

bar, creative room activities, media

rooms, study rooms, computers,

a video gaming area, warm

water pool, family spa pool,

steam and sauna rooms, fitness

INSIGHT: The city council is calling for residents’ views on

what they would like to see in the new Hornby Library, Service

Centre and South West Pool. ​

centre, group exercise studio,

medium and large multi-purpose

rooms.

However, Hornby resident

Mark Peters said the survey will

be “incredibly hard” to answer

because residents only get to

choose their top four options.

He said a lot of the listed options

would be expected to be

included in the new facility.

“It is an interesting way to try

gauge opinion and limit it to four

choices. It is going to be really

hard for anyone.

“One thing I did notice is there

is no option for a hydroslide. It

is one of those things the community

shouldn’t have to do

without, it would be really nice

to have in Hornby,’’ Mr Peters

said.

It is guaranteed the facility

will include a multi-purpose

lane pool, a learn to swim pool,

a toddlers’ wet play area, a customer

services area and the main

library space.

The budget will accommodate

other features as well.

Hornby Cricket Club president

Kevin Hornbrook said he would

have thought the city council

would put out a draft plan of

what they are looking at installing

to gather views.

But board chairman Mike

Mora said it has to work within a

budget and it wanted to get feedback

before creating the detailed

designs.

City council’s head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox

said the cost of each option varies

greatly.

He said the number of options

that can be accommodated will

depend on what is selected for

the facility.

It is expected to open in 2022.

Mr Cox confirmed a draft design

had not yet been developed

but the full $35.7 million is available

for the design and construction

of the facility.

the design go to https://www.

INCREASE: There has been an increase in the theft of vehicles

at Westfield Riccarton.

Thieves target mall car park

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THIEVES ARE targeting

vehicles parked at Westfield

Riccarton.

Police will be beefing

up monitoring of the

area in a bid to “put

a dampener” on the

number of vehicles being

stolen.

Senior Constable Ken

Carter is reminding

shoppers to ensure their

vehicles are locked and

they are parked in well-lit areas

of the mall.

He said there has also been an

increase it vehicles being broken

into and items being stolen.

The thefts are commonly

occurring during weekdays.

Senior Constable

Carter said there was no

“rhyme or reason” as to

why there has been an

increase.

“But it is happening

and we are tasked to

spend more time in

the area to try put a

Ken Carter dampener on it,” he

said.

Westfield Riccarton would not

comment on the thefts, saying it

was a matter for the police.

Concerns over cycleway impact

•From page 1

They are concerned the

cycleway will cause a loss of

residential parking and impact

trees and landscaping.

Mr Greaves said the impact

of the cycleway will be severe

because of the narrowness of the

road. It will be 3.1m wide.

Originally, city council staff

proposed removing about 12 of

the 37 car parks on the street to

make way for the cycleway – but

this was opposed.

Since then, a revised design,

removing 21 car parks to avoid

culling any of the trees, was

approved.

City councillor and

infrastructure, transport

and environment committee

chairwoman Pauline Cotter said

often residents don’t feel listened

to when things don’t go their

way.

“I do feel apologetic to those

people who feel their lifestyle is

being compromised. But there

were absolutely no other options

that were available than to go

down Lochee Rd,” Cr Cotter

said.

She said the issues raised by

the residents are challenging but

the cycleway will be a great asset

to the city.

“We can’t have a cycleway and

Pauline Cotter

a piece missing (on Lochee Rd),

it doesn’t work . . . there was no

other viable option,” she said.

Before giving the cycleway

the green-light, the committee

resolved to make several final

changes to the proposed design

before approving it.

These changes included

placing an alternative route

down Taggart Pl, instead of the

cycleway going from Middlepark

Rd to the Epsom Rd intersection.

But Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

deputy chairwoman Helen

Broughton said she came away

Helen Broughton

from the committee meeting

“really disappointed.”

“I believe they should have

put Lochee Rd to one side and

had further discussion with

residents. They probably could

have come up with something

better.”

A submission from the Greater

Hornby Residents’ Association

described the cycleway as an “illconceived

plan” with no input

from the community taken into

account. Association treasurer

Ross Houliston agreed residents

weren’t listened to throughout

the process.

Riccarton Rd upgrade delayed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MAJOR WORK on Riccarton

Rd has been pushed back until

early next year in a bid to cause

less disruption on the busy road.

Work at the intersection of

Riccarton Rd and Matipo St has

been rescheduled to take place in

January after

it was initially

planned

to begin next

month or

September.

The reason

for the

change of

Tony Simons

plan, is due to

roads being

quieter during January.

The delay will also allow for

further time to consider traffic

management options to suit

people travelling through and

the requirements of businesses,

city council’s planning, delivery

and transport manager Lynette

Ellis said.

It means planned work on

the Matipo/Riccarton Rd and

Clarence/Straven/Riccarton Rd

intersection will occur at the

same time in January.

Ms Ellis said working on the

two intersections will not affect

traffic flow, as Matipo St is

planned to be undertaken in the

CHANGE OF PLAN: Work on the intersection of Matipo St and

Riccarton Rd has been rescheduled to start in January.

day and Clarence/Straven work

is planned to occur overnight.

The work is part of stage 2 of

the Riccarton Rd upgrade, which

began in February.

Stage one of the project included

bus lanes from Deans

Ave to Harakeke St and was fully

completed in November.

Road works have been under

way on Riccarton Rd since September

2016 to earthquake-damaged

water pipes and implement

a bus priority scheme.

Riccarton Bush and Kilmarnock

Residents’ Association

chairman Tony Simons said it is

likely to cause less disruption for

peak hour traffic.

“You have to take them on

their word they are doing what

they can do to minimise disruption,”

he said.

Mr Simons said Fulton Hogan

is doing a good job and the residents’

association was “chuffed”

they went to the trouble to

present an update on progress

at their recent annual general

meeting.

He said if there are any concerns,

it is not so much what is

happening while the works are

going on, but what might happen

when the work is completed.

One of the concerns the

residents’ association was the

planned tree-planted median

strip along Riccarton Rd and

how it would impact peak

traffic.

In May, it was reported the

planned tree-planted median

would be shortened and feature

fewer trees than initially planned

to ensure there were no barriers

to emergency services.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

said the plan sounds reasonable.

“They (Fulton Hogan) have

done a really good job so far in

terms of traffic movement and

keeping people informed,” she

said.

Inspiration for music comes

from life experiences

•From page 1

Everingham said her car is

often where she listens to a lot of

music, which is the inspiration

behind naming her EP after the

first three letters of her number

plate.

Growing up in a

musical family, with

her mother playing the

piano – Everingham

first began writing music

at the age of 13.

“I started writing

really bad songs, like

really, really bad songs

– it is still so funny . . .

I wrote a lot about trees

and leaves, things like

that,” she said.

Her brother Matt

Everingham is based in

Nebraska after moving

to the United States this year,

working as a musical director,

conductor and pianist at live theatre

company Post Playhouse.

The talented 20-year-old, who

can play the piano, guitar and

can sing produced the entire EP

from her home using computer

program GarageBand.

Having had her music described

by New Zealand musician

Bic Runga as giving off

“indie vibes”, Everingham said

she has drawn on jazz and pop

influences for the EP.

She said it has been the biggest

achievement she has had in her

music career so far and hopes to

go into sound engineering/producing

music when she graduates

from Canterbury University.

“I knew it might

not get heaps of

streams or whatever

but still I just wanted

to put it out as stuff

I have done really,”

Everingham said.

Currently, she is

studying a Bachelor

of Arts and Bachelor

of Science at

Canterbury University

specialising in

music, physics and

Spanish.

The inspiration

behind the songs

come from different events and

life experiences Everingham has

had.

“There is one song – Where

My Heart Used to Be – which

I definitely found is about that

shift when you move on. It

could be about anything, like

a relationship or a stage of life.

It is about that shift and you

suddenly look back and you

are like: ‘Oh I have changed’,”

Everingham said.

Readers respond to the

Western News’ article

on the Ilam/Riccarton/

Middleton Rd intersection

Brian Ward – I am strongly

against the $1 million upgrade

to this so-called dangerous

intersection. There is only one

solution to this and I reckon a

five-year-old would come up

with this solution. Here is my

idea and also only cost peanuts

to what this council wants to

spend.

So here it is – all they need to

do is change the phasing of these

lights:

•Green light for Ilam Rd only.

•Green light for Middleton Rd

only.

•Green light for Riccarton Rd

only with green arrows for right

turners.

As simple as that, no need to

spend that amount of money on

an easy solution.

It may delay Riccarton Rd

users for a few minutes. And I

notice that they plan to move left

turn from Ilam into Riccarton

roads, but how is the Purple Line

buses going to access Riccarton

Rd?

And also ban right turn from

Ilam into Riccarton Rds. What

about the 100 bus route because

they turn right there. I thought

this council was trying to get

people onto buses but if they

have to re-route these two buses

more people in cars because

they both go past the university.

I have spoken to numerous bus

drivers on the 100 route and

that’s what they have all said,

change the phasing.

Dianne Downward –

As a resident of the area who

regularly walks/drives by this

intersection and as one of the 137

who wrote a submission to the

planned changes to Riccarton/

Ilam/Middleton Rds, I am not

in favour of the plan to stop the

north/south flow of traffic between

Middleton and Ilam Rds

which wasn’t made clear in your

article.

I agree steps need to be made

to make it safer for all users and

am not against cycleways, but

don’t agree that they need to be

made excessively large to make

them safe.

I attended one of the meetings

held to discuss the proposed

changes at which we were told

that these changes were the only

option as room was needed for

the already approved cycleway.

None of the 20+ residents

in the room had received any

notification to discuss the

now approved cycleway which

is dictating the design of the

intersection. Helen Broughton

thinks there is little opposition

to the proposal (after council

excluded the public to a meeting

on the subject) but I suggest

that:

a) many don’t know of the plan

CHANGES:

Safety

improvements

planned for the

intersection

of Ilam,

Middleton and

Riccarton Rd

has received

opposition

from residents.

PHOTO:

MARTIN

HUNTER

and the effects it will have for

commuters and residents as they

are forced to use the very few

narrow side streets in the area to

find a way around the changes or

join the growing congestion on

Hansons Lane/ Waimari Rd and

Clyde Rd/ Wharenui Rd.

Or b) residents know that the

council isn’t really interested

in their feedback and only

go through the motions of

consultation and therefore don’t

bother to write their concerns to

council. I believe compromise

in the size of the cycleway needs

to be made as well as no right

turns onto Riccarton Rd from

Middleton Rd for all traffic (foot,

bike/scooter, car) to be kept

flowing and safe.

Gender-neutral

loos don’t

work out at UC

• By Sophie Cornish

GENDER-NEUTRAL toilets

have not worked as planned in a

$28 million rebuild development

at Canterbury University.

The University of Canterbury

Students’ Association (UCSA)

has had to install temporary

measures after complaints about

the lines to use the toilets at its

new building, Haere-roa.

The building’s events centre,

the Ngaio Marsh Theatre,

opened it doors on July 12.

Students took to Facebook

to complain about the more

than 30min wait to use the loos,

which are gender-neutral and do

not include urinals.

As a result, the UCSA has

told students temporary

measures will be in place for

the rest of ‘re-orientation week’,

a celebration of the start of

the second semester. UCSA

president Sam Brosnahan said it

will be covering the costs of the

temporary toilets. “While Haereroa

has more toilets than the old

events centre, we understand

there’s room for improvement

. . . our design team for the

building are also looking at a

range of options for a permanent

fix, which includes a urinal,” the

UCSA said on Facebook.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Wigram Youth MP eyes political career

OPPORTUNITY: Wigram MP Megan Woods with her Youth MP,

Hornby High School student Iris Taramai.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN IT comes to politics,

Iris Taramai feels strongly about

overcoming the threat of climate

change.

The Hornby High School

prefect described her selection

by Wigram MP Megan Woods

to represent the electorate

at the Youth Parliament in

Wellington as a “great learning

opportunity”.

Iris, 17, was one of 120 New

Zealand young people selected

to represent their community as

a Youth MP.

As part of the two-day event,

Iris and the other students had

the opportunity to ask members

of Parliament questions on a

range of topics, including the

environment and mental health.

She also took part in a

legislative debate and voted on a

mock sustainable energy bill.

Iris said the bill that was

passed aimed to have about

15,000 electric vehicles on the

road by 2025.

With her passion for the

environment, she is planning

to study biochemistry at

Canterbury University next

year. Iris was also on the Youth

Parliament environment select

committee.

Her goals are to help limit

the agricultural industry’s

greenhouse gas emissions and

make New Zealand plastic-free.

She met Governor-General

Patsy Reddy and Prime

Minister Jacinda Ardern in

Wellington.

Iris said Ms Ardern was one

of the best speakers she has ever

heard. “She is really passionate

about our country and I love

that. She talked to us about the

whole life of an MP.”

Iris became interested in

politics during a school trip to

the Beehive when she was at

intermediate school.

The message she wants

to get across to other young

people is that they can be

successful no matter what their

background is or where they

come from.

“I had many options for

schools I wanted to go to but

I think I made the best choice

coming to Hornby . . . it is

great going to a smaller school

because we get to know each

other and we also get a lot more

opportunities,” Iris said.

Choppers put kids on cloud nine at museum

ABOUT 3700 people flocked

to the Air Force Museum of

New Zealand for a free school

holiday event.

The fun-filled programme

included the chance to see all

the museum’s helicopters on

display together, as well as a

visiting A109 helicopter from

the Royal New Zealand Air

Force No 3 Squadron, which is

based at Ohakea.

Hundreds queued for a

chance to sit inside one of the

choppers, or get “cammedup”

with face-paint and a

helmet. The drone-flying

demonstrations also proved

popular, as did the helicopter

flights and display from

Christchurch Helicopters.

More than 500 kids went

on a helicopter-themed hunt

around the museum, which also

put in the draw to win a flight

with Christchurch Helicopters,

piloted by All Blacks great

Richie McCaw.

Said museum spokeswoman

Michelle Sim: “It was

fantastic to see the museum

buzzing with so many people

having a wonderful time

engaging with aviation, and

we’re very grateful to our

supporters for helping make

the day such a success”.

UP AND AWAY: Papanui’s Jesse

McKey and her son Chase in

Tasty Bites

Vegan options can be delicious and easy

Vegan ingredients have flavours and textures that work really well in fritters and sausage

rolls, giving these dishes a real depth of taste

Vegan broccoli, black bean

fritters

Makes 12

Ingredients

1 Tbsp chia seeds

2 Tbsp water

2 cups broccoli florets, roughly

cut

1 400g can black beans, drained

and rinsed

¼ tsp ground fenugreek

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp freshly ground pepper

½ tsp dried oregano

¼ cup fine polenta

Oil for frying

Lemon wedges

Directions

Begin by soaking the chia

seeds in water and set aside so

they thicken. Put the broccoli in

the food processor and process

briefly. Add the beans, seasoning

and chia mixture and blitz to

form a thick paste. Transfer from

the food processor to a bowl and

taste. Adjust seasoning if needed.

Add a tablespoon of polenta

and mix well to combine. Roll

into 12 evenly-sized balls, flatten

slightly and coat in the polenta.

Heat a large, heavy-based fry

pan with enough oil to cover

the base of the pan. When hot,

add the broccoli fritters and fry

until golden (about 5min a side).

Remove and serve with a pinch of

sea salt and lemon wedges.

Vegan sausage rolls

Ingredients

250g chestnut mushrooms

3 Tbsp olive oil

2 leeks, finely chopped

2 large garlic cloves, crushed

1 Tbsp finely chopped sage leaves

1 Tbsp brown rice miso

2 tsp dijon mustard

30g chestnuts, very finely

chopped

70g fresh white breadcrumbs

1 x 320g sheet ready-rolled puff

pastry (not the all-butter version)

Plain flour for dusting

Dairy-free milk (like soya milk),

to glaze

Directions

Tip the mushrooms into a food

processor and pulse until they are

finely chopped. Put half the olive

oil in a large frying pan, add the

leeks and a pinch of salt and fry

gently for 15min or until softened

and golden brown.

Scrape the leeks out of the pan

into a bowl and set aside to cool

a little.

Heat the remaining oil in

the pan and fry the mushrooms

for 10min over medium heat.

Add the garlic, sage, miso

and mustard, and fry for a further

1-2min. Leave to cool slightly.

Heat the oven to about 200 deg

C. Tip the mushroom mixture

into the bowl with the leeks,

then add the chestnuts and

breadcrumbs.

Season then mix everything

together until you have a slightly

stiff mixture.

Unravel the pastry on a floured

surface, then roll the pastry out so

one side measures 43cm. Mould

the mushroom and leek mixture

into a sausage shape down the

centre of the pastry, then bring

the pastry up around the filling

and seal along the seam with a

fork.

Cut into six pieces. Lay on a

parchment-lined baking sheet

and brush each piece with milk.

Bake for 25min or until deep,

golden brown.

Leave to cool before serving.
