Estuary erosion solutions<br />

under council consideration<br />

POTENTIAL solutions to<br />

address erosion and flood risk<br />

in Southshore and South New<br />

Brighton is expected to cost<br />

millions if implemented.<br />

The city council will consider<br />

proposed options to address the<br />

issue along the estuary edges at<br />

its meeting today.<br />

The<br />

options are<br />

expected to<br />

cost about<br />

$<strong>12</strong>.5 million<br />

overall says<br />

a report by<br />

city council<br />

staff.<br />

David Griffiths “Earthquake<br />

legacy<br />

issues have been an ongoing concern<br />

for Southshore and South<br />

New Brighton residents,” said<br />

city council head of planning<br />

and strategic transport David<br />

Griffiths.<br />

“Residents have made it<br />

clear to us that, before they are<br />

willing to have a conversation<br />

about how their area could<br />

respond to sea-level rise in the<br />

future, they want these issues<br />

resolved.<br />

“This report aims to address<br />

some of those concerns by<br />

providing recommendations for<br />

how we can reduce the risk of<br />

IMPROVEMENTS: Options to address erosion and flood risk at estuaries in city’s east are being considered. PHOTO: NEWSLINE ​<br />

erosion and flooding along the<br />

estuary edge.”<br />

City council staff propose to<br />

replace or cover structures along<br />

the estuary edge in Southshore<br />

to reduce the erosion risk. This<br />

approach had community<br />

support, and would also significantly<br />

improve the appearance of<br />

the estuary edge.<br />

To reduce the risk of flooding<br />

in Southshore, city council staff<br />

recommend the construction<br />

of an 11.4 RL bund close to the<br />

current Land Information New<br />

Zealand bund.<br />

In South New Brighton, staff<br />

propose to restore the estuary<br />

edge with a cobble beach.<br />

To reduce the flooding<br />

risk, staff recommend a new<br />

bund set up to 100m from the<br />

estuary edge within South New<br />

Brighton Park, between the jetty<br />

near Beatty St and the southern<br />

end of the campground in<br />

Halsey St.<br />

New Avon River pedestrian<br />

and cycle bridges approved<br />

THREE PEDESTRIAN and<br />

cycle bridges crossing the Avon<br />

River are a step closer to reality<br />

after the green light was given to<br />

proceed with its construction.<br />

The Medway St and Snell Pl<br />

Bridges reinstate a pedestrian<br />

and cycle connection<br />

across<br />

the Ōtākaro<br />

Avon River,<br />

which has<br />

been missing<br />

since the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

Andrew<br />

Turner<br />

The Avondale<br />

Bridge is<br />

a new bridge<br />

that will provide<br />

a connection to the future<br />

Eastern Reach wetland restoration<br />

area.<br />

The three bridges, and a new<br />

riverside landing at Dallington,<br />

are being funded by a $13.7 million<br />

grant from the Christchurch<br />

Earthquake Appeal Trust.<br />

City council finance and<br />

performance committee chairman<br />

and Deputy Mayor Andrew<br />

Turner said the bridges will help<br />

reconnect communities on each<br />

side of the Avon River.<br />

“The construction of the<br />

bridges signals the start of the<br />

council’s work to develop the<br />

regeneration area into a valuable<br />

asset for Christchurch,” Turner<br />

said.<br />

“These three bridges signal<br />

an exciting new chapter for the<br />

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor, as<br />

we start to bring the Regeneration<br />

Plan for the area to life.<br />

GREEN LIGHT:<br />

Construction<br />

on three new<br />

pedestrian<br />

and cycleway<br />

bridges across<br />

the Avon<br />

River is set to<br />

start at the<br />

beginning<br />

of next<br />

year.<br />

PHOTO:<br />

NEWSLINE ​<br />

“We want to encourage<br />

people to come and explore the<br />

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor,<br />

and these new bridges will<br />

make it significantly easier for<br />

people to develop meaningful<br />

connections to the neighbouring<br />

communities and to the land<br />

itself.”<br />

The city council published<br />

initial bridge designs for community<br />

feedback in June and<br />

used the feedback to refine the<br />

designs of each.<br />

All three bridges will be singlespan,<br />

made from steel truss, with<br />

concrete decks and sliding, jackable<br />

abutments to mitigate lateral<br />

spread.<br />

Work on constructing the<br />

bridges is expected to start in<br />

early 2021.<br />

Stopbank meets<br />

current needs<br />

• From page 1<br />

These options are in response<br />

to several city council resolutions<br />

from August last year regarding<br />

earthquake legacy issues.<br />

Improvements have already<br />

been made to the northern part<br />

of the estuary walkway and<br />

construction is complete on the<br />

southern section of a bund in<br />

South New Brighton, between<br />

Bridge St and South New<br />

Brighton School. Work on the<br />

northern section of the bund will<br />

be completed next year following<br />

the bird-nesting season.<br />

Minor issues have been addressed<br />

following an assessment<br />

of the stopbank between Pages Rd<br />

and Bridge St. Overall, the assessment<br />

showed the stopbank meets<br />

current standards.<br />

Engineering consultancy GHD<br />

is now undertaking an updated<br />

life-safety risk assessment of the<br />

stopbank and this will be a separate<br />

report to the city council once<br />

investigations are complete.<br />

The proposed options to address<br />

erosion and flooding risk are<br />

forecast to cost about $<strong>12</strong>.5m. The<br />

draft 2021-31 Long Term Plan<br />

allows for $10.5m.<br />

Safe space for young cyclists opens<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

LEARNING HOW to ride a bike<br />

and navigating road rules just got a<br />

whole lot easier for children.<br />

The Longview Pl cul-de-sac in<br />

Burwood has been transformed into<br />

a learn to ride track complete with<br />

road markings, stop and give way<br />

signs, pedestrian crossings and mini<br />

obstacles.<br />

Found at the red zone’s East x East<br />

space, the circular track enables<br />

children to learn road rules on<br />

their bikes and scooters without<br />

the pressure of other cars in a fun<br />

environment.<br />

The project was organised by Life<br />

in Vacant Spaces, which works with<br />

community groups by bringing<br />

their ideas to life for events and<br />

activities at underutilised spaces.<br />

Said LiVS director Rachael Shiels:<br />

“The project has been so rewarding<br />

in terms of community involvement<br />

and getting this off the ground. It’s<br />

a really fantastic thing for the east,<br />

and for these communities who<br />

have been through so much.”<br />

Including the track, a fix-it station<br />

will be available to repair bikes, and<br />

children can attend workshops to<br />

learn road rules.<br />

Activities within the 9ha area<br />

was a collaboration between Land<br />

Information NZ and Life in Vacant<br />

Spaces, with funding grants from<br />

the George Sevicke Jones Trust.<br />

TEAM WORK: (From left) – East x East co-ordinator Hannah<br />

Watkinson, Burwood councillor Phil Mauger, Coastal Ward<br />

Community Board member Jo Zervos and Citycare Group’s<br />

Thomas Parackal at the new learn to ride track at its opening on<br />

Saturday.<br />

As the landowner of the Crownowned<br />

red zone area, LINZ has<br />

approved LiVS’ short-term use of<br />

the space.<br />

Volunteers from the Student<br />

Volunteer Army, Rangi Ruru Girls’<br />

School, Cashmere High School,<br />

Christchurch Girls’ High School,<br />

Papanui High School and assistance<br />

from the City Care group helped install<br />

signs, patch potholes, painting<br />

and planting.<br />

The track was first proposed in<br />

2018 after the community wanted<br />

more safe spaces suitable for families,<br />

bikes, and were dog-friendly.<br />

Said Shiels: “Kids are small and<br />

easy to miss by cars, so they’ll be<br />

able to learn with family and friends<br />

out in the open without doing it in<br />

‘real life’.”<br />

The learn to ride track will be in<br />

place for two years, with options to<br />

remain longer if successful.<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

Slowpitch players from Marshland School showed<br />

some nifty skills with the bat and ball at the annual<br />

primary schools summer sports tournament last<br />

week. Their skills earned them first place in the<br />

hotly-contested competition. Amid sweltering<br />

conditions at South Hagley Park and other venues<br />

around Christchurch, 484 children from 18 schools<br />

competed in cricket, softball, kiwi tag, tennis, golf,<br />

bowls and orienteering.<br />

Event to recycle your<br />

electronic waste<br />

EACH YEAR, New<br />

Zealanders create an<br />

average of 19kg of e-waste<br />

per person, which is an<br />

alarming statistic. To raise<br />

awareness, Kilmarnock<br />

Enterprises has teamed<br />

up with the Rotary<br />

Club of Christchurch<br />

Sunrise and Warehouse<br />

Stationery to organise an<br />

electronic recycling day for<br />

Christchurch locals.<br />

As well as putting the<br />

spotlight on New Zealand’s<br />

e-waste problem, the event<br />

that will be be held on <strong>November</strong><br />

21, will also raise<br />

awareness of the important<br />

role Kilmarnock plays in<br />

the community.<br />

For over 60 years, the<br />

Christchurch-based charity<br />

has been in the business of<br />

changing lives. Since 1958,<br />

their mission has been to<br />

provide employment opportunities<br />

for individuals<br />

with disabilities.<br />

At Kilmarnock, people<br />

gain experience in a large<br />

variety of work, including<br />

food packing, assembly,<br />

refurbishing and electronic<br />

recycling. By providing an<br />

inclusive and enriching<br />

paid work environment,<br />

their team are encouraged<br />

to unlock their full potential.<br />

In 2017, Kilmarnock<br />

even established a training<br />

academy, to give individuals<br />

with disabilities another<br />

chance to excel in education<br />

and gain NZQA credits.<br />

In addition to breaking<br />

down social barriers,<br />

Kilmarnock is passionate<br />

about making a positive<br />

environmental impact.<br />

After playing a key role in<br />

the Government’s TV Take<br />

Back Programme, they<br />

decided to launch their<br />

own electronic recycling<br />

scheme. The local charity<br />

now processes a range of<br />

electronic items, and provides<br />

both public drop-off<br />

and corporate partnerships<br />

for a small fee.<br />

They dismantle a variety<br />

of e-waste so it can be demanufactured<br />

to recover<br />

the maximum amount of<br />

recyclable materials. This<br />

also ensures hazardous<br />

substances don’t make their<br />

way into landfill.<br />

Recycling these metals<br />

plays an important role<br />

when it comes to conserving<br />

Aotearoa’s natural<br />

resources.<br />

It’s important that we<br />

all actively try to find<br />

ways to reduce our carbon<br />

footprint. That’s how we can<br />

all make a difference.<br />

LITTLE BLUE penguins<br />

are native to New Zealand<br />

and are the smallest of all<br />

world’s penguin species,<br />

and without a doubt, the<br />

cutest of all.<br />

Not that you are likely<br />

to spot them easily as they<br />

only come on shore after<br />

dark and leave again before<br />

daylight. They will spend<br />

the day fishing and have<br />

been spotted as far as<br />

20km offshore to do so.<br />

At the end of the day,<br />

they gather in groups (or<br />

rafts) waiting for darkness<br />

before quickly making<br />

their way to their nests.<br />

These can be in burrows,<br />

under dense vegetation or<br />

between rocks but some<br />

of you living near the<br />

shoreline may have been<br />

lucky enough to spot a nest<br />

underneath your house,<br />

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY<br />

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote<br />

Estuary Ihutai Trust, a non-profit organisation formed in<br />

2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s most important<br />

coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces a new bird found<br />

in the estuary. Her column aims to raise the understanding of<br />

the values and uniqueness of the area.<br />

Control pets to<br />

protect little blues<br />

garage or even in your<br />

woodpile.<br />

Nesting begins in July<br />

and one to two eggs are<br />

tended to by both parents<br />

who will turns-about keep<br />

eggs and chicks safe and<br />

warm for a day while the<br />

other will go out fishing.<br />

Eggs are laid between<br />

July and mid-<strong>November</strong><br />

and occasionally a pair will<br />

produce a second clutch<br />

in one season. Would it<br />

not be a shame if we lose<br />

our last few remaining<br />

breeding pairs around the<br />

estuary?<br />

Not that long ago they<br />

were commonly found<br />

but increased housing<br />

and roading development<br />

have resulted in the loss<br />

of habitat for the little<br />

blues. With increased<br />

populations we also<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

see more dogs and cats<br />

disturbing the penguins<br />

and now we are just lucky<br />

to still have a few of these<br />

little fellas nesting around<br />

the estuary.<br />

But we can help. Always<br />

have your dog on a lead<br />

when walking around<br />

the estuary, keep your<br />

cats indoors at night and<br />

trap predators on your<br />

property.<br />

The city council park<br />

rangers look after them<br />

the best they can – even<br />

providing nesting boxes<br />

– but they need our help<br />

with the control of dogs,<br />

cat, stoats and weasels.<br />

And don’t forget; if<br />

you ever travel through<br />

Oamaru make a point of<br />

visiting the penguin colony<br />

to watch the penguins<br />

come onshore.<br />

From family cars to work trucks,<br />

and supercars to fixer-uppers<br />

Big turnouts at New Brighton’s Christmas galas<br />

The New Brighton Museum has a rich history spanning for than 100 years.<br />

Peggy Butterfield writes monthly about the historical display at the heritage<br />

museum<br />

WHEN NEW Brighton was a<br />

buzzing place, people would<br />

come from all over town for the<br />

Christmas galas.<br />

A number of competitions<br />

would be held – Miss, Mrs and<br />

Mr New Brighton, mother/daughter,<br />

father/son, and these would<br />

see contestants flexing muscles,<br />

and showing off shapely brown<br />

legs and posing for the judges and<br />

cameras.<br />

Little girls would dance<br />

cutely, while mums and grandmas<br />

cheered them on.<br />

The best of the bands would<br />

entertain us in the sound shell,<br />

and it was a must for the locals to<br />

meet up.<br />

The galas would run for several<br />

days and there was always a huge<br />

turnout.<br />

Jaycees were a big part of<br />
