Dangerous

intersection

to get safety

upgrades

ONE OF the city’s most

dangerous intersections will be

altered to improve its safety.

The intersection of Ilam, Middleton

and Riccarton roads is

notoriously tricky to navigate

because of the off-set alignment

of the three busy roads.

Because of this, the city council

agreed to modify how traffic

flowed through the intersection

and the nearby area.

“The intersection of Ilam,

Middleton and Riccarton roads

is ranked as the seventh most dangerous

intersection in Christchurch

and has been the scene of far

too many accidents,’’ said councillor

Mike Davidson, who chairs the

city council’s Urban Development

and Transport Committee.

“The changes we have approved

should make the intersection

safer for all road users and lead to

fewer crashes occurring there.’’

The changes involve:

– Only allowing left-turning

traffic to move between

Riccarton Road and Middleton

Road, which will effectively

make the junction of Ilam and

Riccarton roads a T-intersection.

– Altering the layout of the

intersection to accommodate

dedicated bus lanes.

Restricting access at the Field

Terrace/Riccarton Road

intersection to left in, left out

traffic.

– Creating a new right-turnonly

lane from Riccarton Road

into Wharenui Road.

The cost of the changes is

estimated at $1.3 million but the

project should qualify for a Waka

Kotahi NZ Transport Agency

subsidy of at least 51 per cent.

Cr Davidson said while the

local community board has

reservations about altering the

flow of traffic between Ilam

and Middleton roads, transport

engineers believe it is the best

way to improve safety.

“Because of the shape and size

of this intersection, the options

for improving its safety are

limited,’’ Cr Davidson said.

UPGRADES: The dangerous intersection at Ilam, Riccarton and Middleton roads will soon get a

much-needed safety improvement.

Biodiversity to get a boost

from new wetland

A NEW wetland that will improve the

water quality at the Halswell River is

almost complete.

Since the Covid-19 lockdown,

contractors have been able to complete

the final earthworks for the wetland at

Ahuriri Lagoon which flows into the

Halswell River.

Final works, completed last week,

included the removal of a temporary

earthen dam between the culvert exiting

the wetland and the main channel

of the river.

This connected the wetland with the

river, making it fully operational.

Netting installed to protect plants

from being uprooted by pūkeko before

becoming established is still in place

but will be removed in the coming

weeks.

An Environment Canterbury

spokesman said: “Low rainfall this

year has left low water levels in Ahuriri

Lagoon and flow in the Halswell

River, but when rain returns, the wetland

will be seen in its full glory.”

The wetland will work as a natural

filter for the Halswell River which has

degraded water quality.

Water leaves the main branch of the

river and flows through part of the

original channel, passing alongside

the Little River Rail Trail in a section

newly planted with native seedlings,

BOOST: The new wetland constructed near the Halswell River is now

fully operational and ready to increase biodiversity in the area. ​

before entering the top of the wetland.

“There it meanders through an area

containing more than 80,000 aquatic

plants that act as a filter to remove nitrates

and other contaminants, before

rejoining the river.”

The Whakaora Te Ahuriri project,

which is being run by the city council,

Selwyn District Council, Environment

Canterbury, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu

and Department of Conservation

started in July 2018.

The $3.5 million project is funded

by the Government’s Freshwater

Improvement Fund, Environment

Canterbury and NIWA.

Remembering past times

at Oaklands School

• By Kim Thomas

DIANE CARSON taught at

Oaklands School in its early

years and worked in the long red

‘Canterbury’ brick classrooms

that housed most of its pupils.

More than 50 years later, Mrs

Carson’s granddaughters Emma

and Esther Vincent attend the

school and the two original brick

blocks are being completely

overhauled for a new generation

of learners.

Mrs Carson, who was known

as Mrs Jellyman during her time

at the school, said it was lovely to

see some of the school’s history

retained in the form of the red

bricks.

“I have photos of the staff outside

the brick block classrooms

and have good memories of

teaching there. I started in 1966,

which is the year the school

opened, and worked there for five

years,” she said.

“During that time there were

about 700 students at the school.

We had classes with 37, 38, 39

children in them each at their

own desk. There were a lot of

children because a lot of people

were moving to the area.”

The brick Canterbury blocks

MEMORIES: Former Oaklands School teacher Diane Carson with

her granddaughters Emma (left) and Esther Vincent outside the

original brick block buildings. ​

are being refurbished as part of

the school’s $5-million-plus redevelopment.

Principal Margaret Trotter

said refurbishment of the two

Canterbury brick blocks was the

last major construction project of

the school’s redevelopment.

The red bricks would be retained

but the rest of the building

would be modern, she said.

The construction of three

new buildings – to house the

administration, a library and

flexible learning space, and an

extended junior school - finished

last year.

“It will be exciting to

finish the last big piece of the

redevelopment puzzle and

enjoy the finished product.

We have been very lucky that

our redevelopment has run to

schedule and look forward to

celebrating the milestone when

it is all complete.”

Rotary helps create

community space

ROTARY CLUBS across the city

have joined forces to develop a

dedicated garden and market

space for the community to enjoy.

The overgrown pocket of land

will be developed on the grounds

of disability service provider Hohepa

Canterbury and was made

possible by the Rotary Clubs of

Riccarton, Hornby, Papanui,

Cashmere and Christchurch

Sunrise.

The area became overrun

and unusable following the

earthquakes, therefore Hohepa

Canterbury decided to construct

a pathway and reflection garden –

but was struggling with funding.

Said the Rotary Club of Riccarton

president Greg Cayford:

“We will be sharing with, and

working alongside residents, day

community members, parents

and staff who may choose to

engage with the project.

“This project is highlighting

that there are many connections

already established between Rotary

clubs, individual members

and with Hohepa Canterbury.”

Hohepa Canterbury in Cashmere

provides support to 130

special needs children and adults

with an intellectual disability to

live fully engaged lives.

They offer diverse living

options, learning and activity

programs, community participation,

and therapies inspired

by anthroposophy – a holistic

philosophy encompassing the

planet, the people and spiritual

essence.

One of anthroposophy’s key

teachings is that physical wellbeing

is enhanced by creating

physical environments for work

and living that provide a positive

experience.

Aside from providing the campus

with a “welcoming, visually

appealing streetscape,” the stream

boundary was integral to the wellbeing

of the Hohepa community.

The area’s mature trees will

be enhanced by green space and

plantings, providing a natural

area for reflection.

The gathering space will host activities

such as market stalls selling

Hohepa farm goods and seasonal

activities such as carol singing.

“As meetings have been

held between Rotary representatives

and the Hohepa team, it

has become clear that there are

further enhancements we can

develop together as the project

progresses and nears completion,”

said Mr Cayford.

Veterinary practice

A few SPECIALISED services

you may not know about…

1. CHEMOTHERAPY

The past 12 months has seen our Practice treat many

cancer patients with Chemotherapy. We have an

experienced, dedicated team of vets and nurses who

really connect with these patients and their owners.

We see referrals from other Practices and we can

offer sound advice, deliverance of care and ongoing

support for these patients. We often seek the advice

from specialists when formulating the appropriate

plans and drugs to be used.

Kirsty and Mauger sharing the love, after

Mauger was in for chemotherapy to treat

his Mast Cell Tumour.

Chemotherapy in pets is not as aggressive as in

humans, therefore the side effects are less. We aim for

“Quality of Life” versus squeezing every minute out

of living. We do aim for “complete clinical remission”

though. Most tumours are removed initially or

debulked and then chemo is used to reduce the risk of

spread of cancer to other sites. We do not have access

to radiation therapy in Christchurch.

Side effects ( nausea, vomiting, lethargy, fever,

diarrhoea, anorexia) can occur, but are not as severe

as in humans as doses given are lower. We manage

these with medications or reducing the next chemo

drug dosage.

Pets can still enjoy their normal foods and exercise

whilst on chemotherapy. There are a few exceptions

though. If your pet’s White Blood cell count gets

too low, then avoid high density dog areas so

disease transmission is low. Raw food diets are not

advised during chemotherapy due to an increased

risk of infection if the pet’s immune system comes

compromised. It is thought a premium diet, higher in

protein and fat/lower in carbohydrate are preferred

and fish oil has been talked about.

Pets DON’T lose hair like humans. After surgical clipping,

hair regrowth can be slow but it will grow back.

There is no risk to the owner of a pet receiving

chemotherapy, although pregnant women should not

handle any chemotherapy medications that are to be

given at home.

Our Vet Kirsty does the lion share of Chemotherapy in

the Practice. She has a dedicated, experienced nursing

team and these patients are all typically scheduled

on one day. Blood work is initially done to check they

are fit and healthy for their chemo drugs, then they

are injected slowly via an IV line or given orally. No

sedation drugs are usually required. It is quick, easy

and painless for your pet. Kirsty is really passionate

about helping your pet seek cancer remission whilst

enjoying a full, great quality of life. She is with you

every step of the way, answering your questions,

especially when big decisions need to be made.

2. SURGICAL REFERRALS

We are now able to offer a surgical referral service

thanks to Dr Helen Milner (a registered specialist in

Small Animal Surgery)

coming on board

recently. Helen sees

referral patients from

all over the South

Island where they are

typically booked for a

1 hours consultation,

with surgery then

scheduled if required.

We have built a

dedicated sterile

surgery and theatre

area to cope with this

specialist.

surgical workload and have purchased the necessary

specialised equipment so that spinal, orthopaedic,

soft tissue, and thoracic surgery can proceed without

a hitch. We also can organise patients to have CT/

MRI scans, prior to surgery, through Pacific Radiology

if necessary. Spinal ( CSF) taps are also carried out if

deemed necessary for spinal/intracranial patients.

Your vet needs to refer your pet to Helen for her expert

opinion and surgical expertise.

3. ENDOSCOPY

This is a great, non invasive service which allows

us vets to have a good look down airways into the

lungs (can even go up nostrils) and down or up the

gastrointestinal tract. We have just purchased a smaller

scope to visualise the urinary system in dogs and can

get into smaller airways.

Catherine and Kirsty seen here manoevering

the endoscope to retrieve the scrunches from

Floyd’s stomach.

The patient is required to be under anaesthetic but

the procedure is fast and often effective at getting

a diagnosis, biopsying tissue or retrieving “foreign

bodies” which is most

fun. Recently “Floyd”, a 4

month old Labradoodle

was endoscoped late

one afternoon for

eating “scrunchie” hair

ties, with 6 ended up

being retrieved via

the endoscope. Very

satisfying, quick and less

expensive compared to The retrieved scrunchie

exploratory surgery.

4. RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

Our new vet “ Terryne Loney” is an expert in the field

of dentistry, so coupled with vet Olivia who enjoys all

things in the teeth and gum department, we are able

to handle most dental problems and emergencies.

Our state of the

art dental suite

is fully equipped

with 2 dental

stations, allowing

scaling, polishing

and extractions

to be performed

on 2 patients at

the same time.

Digital dental

radiographs are

very important Terryne, our new vet.

when deciding

what teeth need extracting, checking for cancers and

root infections and congenital tooth abnormalities.

We now have the veterinary skills and equipment to

perform restorative dental care including root canal

surgery and offering alternatives to extraction in teeth

that are important to retain.

For any further information on the above services

please don’t hesitate to call or message us.

Charity in

need of

donations

• By Bea Gooding

THE BLANKET Bank is in need

of donations following increased

demand due to Covid-19.

The charity has set up a givealittle

page to make up the shortfall

of warm bedding they provided to

vulnerable families across the city.

Due to the pandemic, usual

donations of used bedding was

“much more difficult” to process

therefore monetary donations

were much preferred.

Charity co-ordinator Martha

Baxendell said compared to this

time last year, demand was higher

than normal, reflecting job security

in families.

“We started the givealittle

because we’ve had fewer donations

over the lockdown that we couldn’t

accept and it (donations) was

incredibly low at this time of year,”

she said.

Donations had already been

made, meaning the charity only

had to turn away one person,

instead of many.

The funds will be used to purchase

new blankets, duvet, sheets

and other warm items.

Donations can be made to The

Blanket Bank at: https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/blanket-bank

Author draws on own bullying experience

THE THIRD and final book

in a series about bullying by

Christchurch cartoonist and

writer, Alex Hallatt, is set to hit

bookshops later this month.

Hallatt’s inspiration for the

books came from her time at

primary school in England.

“When I was bullied at school,

it was one of the most miserable

periods of my life. I wrote the

books I would have liked to have

read back then. They are stories

that give hope and tools for

standing up to bullying,” Hallatt

said.

But bullying is still a problem

in New Zealand schools. A 2019

Education Review Office study

reported that 47 per cent of

primary students had been bullied,

while 61 per cent of primary

students had witnessed bullying

of others.

Hallatt’s newest book, FAB

Club 3 - The Big Match, follows

on from Friends Against Bullying

(FAB) Club and FAB Club 2 -

Friends Against Cyberbullying.

The first book’s theme was

general bullying at school and

the second book’s theme was

online and phone bullying.

For the third book, it was time

for Hallatt to turn her attention

to sport.

“Playing sport can be fun, but

not if you never get picked for

the team. And what if the team

you do get picked for has the

world’s worst coach? A coach

who is useless, or worse: a bully,”

the book’s description reads.

And not only does it relate to

the subject of bullying among

children; but as all of us have

witnessed recently, some of

the worst bullying comes from

adults who use their positions of

power badly.

“Even if they are lucky enough

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. Rising damp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, ground moisture barrier.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests have

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise

from the ground and enter a house every day,

leading to mildew, mould, condensation and

musty smells. Moulds can produce various

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and

very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Dr Larry Bellamy BE (hons) PhD in a

report dated 1988: Foam Concrete Under

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier

under the suspended wooden floor of your

home, even when there is no crawl space.

• BRANZ Appraised; Appraisal Number 961

• Members of the Insulation Association of

New Zealand.

Zone Control for your

ducted heat pump

Ducted heat pumps are a highly efficient

way to heat (or cool) your home. The

air from the heat pump is ducted to

several rooms or zones in your house.

Using a zone control system makes your

ducted heat pump even more efficient, by

specifying the amount of heat required

in each area, so not wasting energy to

overheat or overcool any room.

The AirTouch4 zone control system

from Smooth-Air takes ducted heat pump

air zoning to a whole new level of comfort

and energy efficiency.

AirTouch4 - The Ultimate Zone

Control

Have total control of your comfort zone:

AirTouch4 lets everyone enjoy a different

level of conditioned air in the room they

are in.

Save money on the power

bill, without compromising on

comfort, by only running the

heating or cooling where you

need it with Smart Zoning.

Plus with runtime tracking,

energy and airflow management

technology, you can enjoy greater

efficiency and savings from your

family’s ducted heat pump.

The AirTouch4 can

%

also

connect to Google Home and

Amazon Alexa.

Not every home is designed

equal. Not every room is either.

Temperatures can often fluctuate from

one room to the next because of sunlight,

room activity or other factors.

With AirTouch4’s Individual

Temperature Control Technology (ITC),

the AirTouch monitors temperatures

and smartly adjusts airflow as needed

around your home with the aid of multiple

wireless temperature sensors instead of a

single sensor in one location. When some

rooms get too hot or cold, the AirTouch

will adjust airflow to maintain your desired

temperature, without wasting conditioned

air on rooms already comfortable.

zone control.
