of pathway

progressing

THE SPEED limit on Main Rd,

Redcliffs, could be lowered to

40km/h as part of the multimillion

dollar project to complete

the final section of Te Ara Ihutai

Christchurch Coastal Pathway.

The speed limit reduction is one

of several proposed changes the

city council is seeking community

feedback on as it moves to finalise

plans for the final section of the

pathway, around Moncks Bay.

“The final section of the Christchurch

Coastal Pathway runs

through a complex coastal environment,’’

city council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis said.

“We are going to be building

in a narrow, busy corridor along

the coastal marine edge that has

wildlife and natural hazards so it

requires a lot of detailed planning.

“Our goal is to substantially

upgrade the existing narrow grit

path to create a 4m-wide, safe,

high-quality pathway for a variety

of users. •Turn to page 5

CONNECTION: A 4m-wide section will complete the Christchurch Coastal Pathway. It will be accessible to a variety of users.

Meeting to discuss

rising sea levels

PEOPLE LIVING in the

Lyttelton and Mt Herbert areas

will be the first to be consulted

on over the impact of rising sea

levels.

The city council has agreed

to start adaptation planning

with low-lying

coastal and

inland communities

likely to

be impacted by

rising sea levels.

A meeting

will be held

Mike

Davidson

on Monday,

6-7.30pm, Allandale

Hall,

Governors Bay.

Said urban development and

transport committee chairman

Mike Davidson: “We have a big

coastline and a lot of low-lying

land, so one of the most significant

challenges facing us is how

do we respond to the coastal

hazards caused by climate

change and sea level rise.

“First up, it’s important we

have a city-wide conversation

about the adaptation planning

process as there are implications

for all residents, not just people

CONSULTATION: The city council will be talking to

communities likely to be impacted by rising sea levels.

living in coastal and low-lying

communities. We have some big

decisions ahead of us that will

likely have an impact not just on

this generation, but on generations

to come.

“We then need to work closely

with our first tranche of communities,

to develop an adaptation

plan together.

“The adaptation planning

programme that we have

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

formally endorsed today is

based on the Ministry for the

Environment’s guidance and

puts community engagement

at the centre of our decisionmaking.”

The city council sessions will

give interested residents across

the district an opportunity to

learn more about the coastal

hazards adaptation planning

programme.

Spirit of Enderby first

to use new berth

LYTTELTON’S new $67

million cruise ship berth

was meant to be vessel

empty for a while – until

Spirit of Enderby arrived

on Monday.

The Christchurchbased

Heritage Expeditions

flagship has claimed

the honour of being the

first cruise ship to berth at

the new facility.

The berth will be officially

opened next Wednesday.

Covid-19 will mean cruise

ships arriving in Lyttelton will be

scare, if non-existent, until the

pandemic is over.

But the Spirit of Enderby was

a welcome insight of what is to

come.

Lyttelton Port Company

engagement and sustainability

general manager Phil de Joux

said he was not expecting the

berth would be used by a cruise

ship so soon.

The port was also busy at the

moment so having the new berth

was helping ease congestion.

“We’ve been looking at other

uses for it … a Korean Antarctic

research ship will be using it

next week but at the moment we

actually have quite a bit of berth

HONOUR: The Spirit of Enderby was

the first ship to use Lyttelton’s new

cruise liner berth.

congestion in our inner harbour,

so it will be good,” said de Joux.

De Joux said that in spite of the

dampener Covid-19 had put on

the cruise industry, he was proud

his team was able to finish the

berth on time and on budget.

“We are nearly at the end of five

years of reconstruction now following

the earthquakes. It is the

end of an era and it is a great asset

for the future.”

The Spirit of Enderby sailed

directly from Vladivostok in

eastern Russia and the crew have

been in isolation for 44 days.

Russian crew members received

another Covid-19 test on Monday

morning and have to remain on

the ship for now.

The 50-passenger ship will sail

to Invercargill to pick up its first

passengers on November 24 for a

Kiwi-only cruise.

Pathway to marina under way

CONTRACTORS have started

constructing a pathway, two

new pedestrian crossings and

relocating the Sutton Quay

port access gate, creating a

pedestrian link from Norwich

Quay to Te Ana Marina in

Lyttelton.

Currently, there is no

pedestrian

access from

the quay to Te

Ana Marina,

meaning

people must

either use the

stairs from

Simeon Quay

to the back

Andrew

Turner

of Te Ana

Marina, or

walk down to

Godley Quay.

Banks Peninsula Ward

councillor and Deputy Mayor

Andrew Turner said it was great

to seee the Lyttelton community

gain additional access to the

waterfront.

“Whakaraupō/Lyttelton

Harbour is a special place

to many people. We know

that particularly during the

Covid-19 level 4 lockdown

earlier this year Te Ana Marina

was a very popular spot for

locals to walk and enjoy some

fresh air,” he said.

“Providing this walkway

will mean people can now

easily walk from Lyttelton’s

town centre to Te Ana

Marina.

“I’m looking forward to

seeing more families and

visitors down on the waterfront

this summer – this is the perfect

spot for a picnic, a walk along

the promenade or a chance to

take in the stunning harbour

views.”

Lyttelton Port Company

engagement and sustainability

general manager Phil de

Joux said since Te Ana

Marina was opened in 2018,

it has been fantastic to see the

community use the recreational

area as a space to connect and

enjoy.

“While the new pathway is

being constructed, no vehicles

or pedestrians will be able to

access the inner harbour via

Sutton Quay. Alternative access

and traffic management is in

place for LPC’s customers and

port users.”

The new pathway is expected

to be completed by mid-

December.

“We’re expecting to have

the pedestrian pathway ready

in time for the community

to enjoy over the summer

holidays,” de Joux said.

Construction

expected to start

in June next year

•From page 1

“We also want to create some new

pedestrian connections so we can

make the pathway more accessible

for locals,’’ Ellis said.

“This will require some changes,

including relocation of some existing

bus stops and removal of some

on-street parking on Main Rd.

“With considerably more pedestrians

and cyclists expected, a

lower speed limit will help to keep

everyone safe as they move through

the area.’’

To help maintain the availability

of on-street parking in this popular

area, the city council is proposing

to upgrade the car park on the

pump station site on Main Rd and

add angle parking on Cliff St and

Bayview Rd.

“We are working towards a construction

start in the middle of next

year,’’ Ellis said.

“We want to get this final section

of the pathway completed so we can

realise the Christchurch Coastal

Pathway Group’s vision of having

a coastal pathway that stretches all

the way from Ferrymead Bridge

through to Scarborough.’’

Construction of the final section

of the pathway is being funded

by the Government as part of its

Covid-19 response. It is one of

the ‘shovel ready’ projects that are

designed to stimulate the economy.

Christchurch

Hospital’s

Emergency

Department

is on the move.

From 7.30am on

Wednesday 18 November,

if you need emergency

hospital care, you’ll need

to come to the new

Emergency Department

in Waipapa – Christchurch

Hospital, Hagley.

Entry to the Emergency Department drop off

area is off Riccarton Ave.

Turn left in front of Christchurch Women’s

Hospital for drop off and accessible parking

in front of the new building.

Please keep the

Emergency Department

for emergencies.

SLOW: Many water supplies on Banks Peninsula are stream-fed and are

now running low due to dry conditions. Residents are being warned to save

water.

Residents urged to save

water as streams run low

STREAM-FED water

supplies on Banks

Peninsula are dropping,

and the city council is

pleading for residents to

start saving water.

Data from the city

council shows Akaroa’s

cumulative rainfall this

year is the lowest it has

been in a decade – its total

rainfall this year is 447mm,

less than half the 10-year

average of 957mm.

Duvauchelle’s water supply

was also under extra

pressure, with the streams

that supply it running particularly

low for November.

“Most water supplies in

Banks Peninsula

are

fed by small

streams,

which are

usually at

their lowest

when Summer

water demand

is at its

Helen

Beaumont

highest,” city council head

of three waters and waste

Helen Beaumont said.

“Right now, streams

are exceptionally low and

expected to keep dropping,

so we need residents to get

on board early and start

saving water now please.’’

The city council had not

imposed water restrictions,

but were watching weather

forecasts, stream flows,

and daily water use “very

closely.”

“Even if we get scattered

rain over coming days, it

won’t do much to change

the overall situation with

the streams,’’ Beaumont

said.

The city council also

needed to ensure it was not

taking too much water from

the streams, as doing so

would have an impact on

the plant, fish and insects

that live in the waterways,

as well as the long-term

quality of the water.

Redcliffs School’s steel

construction award-winning

THE STEEL construction

of Redcliffs School has won

an award.

The school was opened

by Prime Minister Jacinda

Ardern in June, after being

forced to move from its old

site by the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

This week, it was singled

out in the Excellence in

Steel Awards.

Christchurch firm VIP

Steel won the Up To $1.5

million category for the

way it used steel to get

around quake and coastal

ground challenges.

A Steel Construction

NZ spokesperson said the

judges were impressed

with the construction of

the school and its use of

blended materials, and

commended the team’s

focus on buildability and

collaboration.

“The team has shown

out-of-the-box thinking

to produce a resilient

building on a site with

a history of earthquake

damage.”

The site sits in a flood

plain and a coastal inundation

zone, and is subject to

lateral spread and liquefaction

settlement.

Almost 170 structural

steel industry leaders and

specialists gathered at

Skyline, Queenstown, to

celebrate the best of the

best at the awards.

VIP Steel also won a second

award for The Spur in

the Standalone Residential

category.

Customer feedback

sparks A-Four-Dable idea

at Four Square Redcliffs

When Four Square Redcliffs

opened its doors in June 2020,

operator Heath De Garnham

promised the team would have

their ears wide open to listen

to their customers.

It’s a promise the team are

staying true to, says Heath

“we’re a community store

and a big part of being a part

of a tight knit community is

supporting each other, listening

and responding to what our

customers want and need.”

One message the Four Square

Redcliffs team have been

hearing loud and clear is that

providing excellent value for

money, as well as convenience

and choice in their community

store is extremely important.

The team put their heads

together and have taken action,

introducing ‘Local Deal’, specials

that are personally selected by

the Four Square Redcliffs team,

plus a brand new idea called

‘A-Four-Dable Everyday’.

The A-Four-Dable concept

came about as a result of

listening to our customers says

Heath, “they’ve been telling

us they’d appreciate some

certainty around the price of their

everyday grocery items.”

It was a challenge the Four

Square Redcliffs team were keen

to find a solution for and set

about identifying everyday items

that regularly feature in most

Redcliffs resident’s weekly shop.

With fruit and veg, bread, milk,

cheese, yogurt, biscuits, frozen

fruit, beer, wine and shampoo

all on the A-Four-Dable list, Four

Square Redcliffs customers

can now look out for the yellow

A-Four-Dable tickets and choose

them in the confidence they’ll

be able to get everything they

need at a consistent everyday

price, with the convenience of

shopping and supporting local.

With our combination of specials

and our new A-Four-Dable

everyday option, our customers

can now have the best of both

worlds” says Heath.

“It’s fantastic to be able to

bring new ideas to life at

Four Square Redcliffs, at

the moment everyone is

watching the dollars,

so looking out for the

A-Four-Dable shelf

tickets makes Four

Square Redcliffs

a really easy

place to shop

for the every-

day things you want and need

while supporting your community

store.”

So come on in, check out the

Local Deals and new A-Four-

Dable prices. We’re here for the

Redcliffs community and we’d

love your support by making

Four Square Redcliffs your

regular place to shop. It’s very

A-Four-Dable!

Surf club engages with community

Tayors Mistake Surf Life

Saving Club volunteer

Dave Mills reports on

what is happening at the

club

THE TAYLORS Mistake Surf

Life Saving Club is in great

shape. Our volunteer lifeguard

talent and depth is strong. Our

junior programme is bulging

at the seams with enthusiasm

and numbers, and our new

clubrooms will be finished in

December.

The club is also very proud

of its high-performance programme

for those who choose

to compete in addition to their

volunteer lifeguard role.

The club recognises that the

world has changed, and as more

of the wider community are

likely to enjoy more of the local

environment this summer, our

volunteers are very ready to help

the community enjoy the beach

and stay safe.

To try and reach out to the

community, a small community

engagement project has been

developed and is now underway.

We are using our social media

sites (Facebook and Instagram)

to introduce the community to

some of our volunteers, and to

allow our volunteers to tell our

new clubrooms under construction.

story to the community. We are

fortunate to be helped with this

project by Josh Ryan, a talented

postgraduate marketing student

from Canterbury University.

Each week we will post short

video clips fronted by our volunteers,

as they seek to highlight in

their own way the beauty of Taylors

Mistake, what the beach and

surrounds has to offer, and to

highlight that the public should

feel very confident approaching

our friendly volunteer lifeguards

to ensure they stay safe and enjoy

their day at the beach.

We even have a surprise in

store with a video clip during the

summer from one of our famous

Taylors lifeguard TV stars!

We are reaching out to the

community to highlight our volunteers

as real people, with real

day jobs and diverse personalities.

They are all passionate about

the beach that they help keep

safe. We are a small club, but we

are hoping that as people engage

with and share our videos on

social media, more of the public

will see the talent we have in our

volunteers. We hope that the

public will recognise just how

approachable our volunteers are.

We are delighted that the Sumner

Ferrymead Foundation has

supported this project. We see

strong alignment with our values

and the values that the foundation

promotes.

Stay close to our social media

sites over the summer and check

out the stories of some of our

volunteers.

Our volunteers will be

patrolling the beach each

weekend and on public holidays

starting from Show weekend.

Remember – swim between the

flags.

When we call, hundreds

of Kiwi businesses answer.

At Fire and Emergency, 80% of our people are volunteers, many running or working at businesses

just like this. In an emergency, their businesses proudly allow them to rush out and help.

Preparing young for life’s adversities

Myriad groups help

keep our community

moving. Reporter Bea

Gooding speaks to

Life Education Trust

Canterbury community

engagement manager

Andy Gray about why

the trust has been an

iconic fixture in schools

for the past 30 years

and why he’s involved

Could you tell me a bit

about what the Life Education

Trust does, and how it came

to be what it is today in

Canterbury?

The Life Education Trust

started over 30 years ago, which

started in Canterbury. There’s

now 32 regional trusts across

the country, and one national

branch. The vision is to inspire

tamariki and rangatahi to make

positive choices and to give them

the power to do that. The trust

addresses challenges including

obesity, substance use, mental

health and well-being and

bullying.

We operate in three mobile

classrooms in Canterbury,

they’re like big container shells

that have been turned into

REWARDING: Life Education Trust Canterbury community engagement manager Andy

Gray is passionate about inspiring children to make the right decisions in life.

classrooms and are moved

around different schools –

whether it was as far as Omihi in

North Canterbury, right down

to Rakaia. Whether schools have

35 students or 500 students, we

end up making our way there no

matter where they are.

What issues is the trust

currently facing in the wake of

Covid-19?

Quite a few in all fairness –

when Covid-19 hit during the

first lockdown, even though we

were still continuing to support

the teachers and tamariki during

lockdown, we didn’t get any

school fees come in, and the

funders that we usually used

were all closed down.

It’s been tough, but we

managed to get through it

and we’re in a better position

now. We reached out to a lot

of people that have done quite

well throughout Covid-19, like

supermarkets, and to the Rata

Foundation and Lottery Grants

Board who have helped us out.

With Covid-19 it’s a doubleedged

sword. It’s great that

we’re busier now and we’re

looking to expand to a fourth

classroom because of it. But the

double-edged side of that sword

is obviously with increased

demand it means that more

people are affected, there are

higher anxiety levels.

We’ve learned a lot about

mental health from the

earthquakes in the past 10 years

and also the mosque attacks

where kids have been affected.

Things like a lack of employment

that comes from it just filters

through to the kids, so we expect

to see increased demand over the

next few months.

The trust has been iconic in

Canterbury schools for the past

30 years. What do you attribute

towards its success?

Obviously, the most

memorable thing about Life

Education is Harold the Giraffe.

But the reason why I think we’re

so iconic is because we tend to

react to the issues currently at

hand.

‘It’s the kids’ reactions which I find the most rewarding’

•From page 11

We don’t get any government

or Ministry of Education funding,

so we aren’t led by their

agenda, and it’s why we’re the

number one health education

provider. We don’t want to be led

by what they want, which is why

we work with teachers to adapt

[the lesson]. I think that’s what

makes us so successful.

Why did you decide to join

the trust?

I’ve got a wee eight-year-old

boy and things are a little bit different

now than back in my day;

kids have got different challenges

now, so I just wanted to make

sure I was getting in touch with

what was going on. Kids seem to

be a lot more involved and more

aware of what’s happening around

them because of social media and

access to the internet. That was

my excuse to get involved and

understand what’s happening in

my own child’s head.

What are the rewarding parts

of your job?

The kids – when Harold comes

on board, the kids wander in and

when they see him, they all get

pretty excited to hear what he

has to say. It’s the kids’ reactions

which I find the most rewarding.

Like most jobs, it’s not always

fun and games. What can be

challenging about your role?

I think seeing the statistics

that are pretty grim, like when I

hear about the teen suicide rates

or how many kids are stressed.

About 35 per cent of kids are

stressed at least once a week.

It’s like, bloody hell, these kids

are eight or nine-years-old, they

shouldn’t be stressed, they should

be watching Pokémon on TV or

something.

Tell me a bit about where life

began for you – where did you

grow up? How about family?

I was born in Salford, UK.

When I was about 13-years-old

my folks decided to ship us all

over, with my brothers and sister,

and start life afresh over here. I

ended up going to school down

the road at Christchurch Boys’

High School, and eventually at

the University of Canterbury.

After travelling overseas for a

while, I came back and became

the director at Specsavers (Papanui)

after opening up a franchise

here. After selling that I was

lucky that I had a bit more free to

pick and choose the jobs I wanted

to do, and that’s when the Life

Education Trust job came up.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

ICON: The Life Education Trust has been visiting Canterbury

schools for more than 30 years.

My two brothers live in Sunshine

Coast and Gold Coast in

Australia. My sister is here in

Christchurch so she’s not very

far from me, and my parents

are retired now and live in the

Hurunui District.

Do you remember much from

life back in England?

I remember quite a lot of it. It’s

quite a rough spot where we were,

a lot of cars were being nicked

every night and there were a lot

of fights, you could just watch it

from your window - that’s what it

was all to me.

One of my favourite parts

about my home town is the

football, everyone enjoyed a bit

of soccer. You could play it in

the streets, you’d just jump over

the back fence after school and

go play with your friends in the

streets.

Aside from your work, what

do you like to do in your spare

time?

I enjoy any sport, especially

soccer being English and all.

I’ve always the idea of making

something myself so I make short

films on the side.

I make any type of short film,

it’s just a matter of writing a

script and trying to gain funding

to do it.

I’ve always loved movies, the

idea for me growing up was to

become either a football player, a

fireman or a moviemaker.

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a non-profit organisation formed in 2002 to

protect one of New Zealand’s most important coastal wetlands. This is her last Birds of the Estuary column. A new column

will start next week – Estuary Matters.

Greenfinch is a sparrow lookalike

THE GREENFINCH was introduced

from England when some 100 birds

were released here between 1862 and

1868.

Like many other introduced birds,

they rather enjoyed our environment

and settled here nicely with the result

that they are now commonly found

throughout New Zealand.

This greenfinch is a small bird and

is actually often confused for a house

sparrow due to its size and its plain

brownish colourings. But then spring

arrives and the male produces its

stunning green and yellow breeding

plumage and certainly can no longer

be called plain.

Nests are being built in early spring

when four to six eggs are produced, and

this can be repeated twice during the

nesting season. The female incubates

the eggs alone but is assisted by the

male who will bring her food to the

nest to save her from having to leave the

eggs alone. Feeding the chicks is done

by both the parent birds.

They are not fussy eaters and they

will eat most tree seeds, but the seeds

of the pine trees do tend to be their

favourite and that is why you may

have seen the greenfinches along the

South Brighton side of the estuary

more often than the hillside.

Apart from seeds though

they will also at caterpillars, aphids,

moths and other small bugs. Fill up

your bird feeders, the greenfinch is

easily attracted by “wild bird seed”

available from supermarkets.

Contacts

by Mark Watson

The unforgettable new book from award-winning writer

and comedian Mark Watson. One man’s last journey. One

hundred and fifty-eight chances to save his life. James

Chiltern boards the 23:50 sleeper train from London to

Edinburgh with two pork pies, six beers and a packet of

chocolate digestives. At 23:55 he sends a message to all

158 people in his contacts, telling them that he plans to end

his life in the morning. He then switches his phone to flight

mode. He’s said goodbye. To him, it’s the end of his story –

and time to crack open the biscuits. But across the world, 158

phones are lighting up with a notification. Phones belonging to his mum.

His sister. His ex-best friend. The woman who broke his heart. People he’s

lost touch with. People he barely knows. And for them, the message is only

the beginning of the journey. Funny and wise, tender and deeply moving,

Contacts is a beautiful story about the weight of loneliness, the importance

of kindness – and how it’s never too late to reach out

Betrayals

by Bridget Collins

From the Number 1 bestselling author of THE BINDING. If everything

in your life was based on a lie Would you risk it all to tell the truth? At

Montverre, an exclusive academy tucked away in the mountains, the

best and brightest are trained for excellence in the grand jeu: an arcane

and mysterious contest. Léo Martin was once a student there, but lost

his passion for the grand jeu following a violent tragedy. Now he returns

in disgrace, exiled to his old place of learning with his political career in

tatters. Montverre has changed since he studied there, even allowing a

woman, Claire Dryden, to serve in the grand jeu’s highest office of Magister

Ludi. When Léo first sees Claire he senses an odd connection with her,

though he’s sure they have never met before. Both Léo and Claire have

built their lives on lies. And as the legendary Midsummer Game, the climax

of the year, draws closer, secrets are whispering in the walls…

Select about 12 of the best berries

for the top. Put the rest in a

saucepan with 3 tablespoons of

sugar and the water.

Bring to a gentle simmer, then

cook for about 2min. Place the

cut sponge pieces in the bottom

of a clear glass bowl. Add the

Grand Marnier and allow it to

soak in. Ladle in the strawberries

and juice.

To make the custard, beat the

egg yolks and sugar until light and

thick. Heat the milk and vanilla

bean in a heavy-based saucepan

until almost boiling. Tip the hot

milk onto the egg mixture in a

bowl and stir well to combine.

Rinse the pan that the milk

was heated in, return it to the

heat and strain the egg, sugar and

milk mixture into it. Carefully

reheat the custard, stirring constantly

until the mixture thickens

enough to coat the spoon.

Do not let this boil, as the mixture

will curdle. If the mixture

starts to curdle around the edges,

immediately remove from the

heat and whisk vigorously until

smooth.

Once the custard is cool,

tip it over the strawberries.

Finally, lightly whip the cream

then spread it over the custard.

Decorate with reserved halved

strawberries. Chill before serving.

Sound of thunder from V8 SUV

THERE’S LITTLE doubt that

the way we view automobiles is

changing with a global demand

for fuel efficiency and fewer

emissions.

Most manufacturers are

looking at ways to address those

issues, and that’s showing with

an ever-increasing number of

hybrids and electric vehicles

reaching our market.

I’m not rebelling against the

electric revolution, but the reality

is I’ll find it hard to give up my

desire for internal combustion

engines, and the bigger and

more powerful they are, the

better.

Mercedes-Benz has already

introduced an electric vehicle

down under and the company

is indicating more will arrive en

masse.

Where that leaves its big cars,

and the big engines, I don’t know,

but in the interim I can be very

grateful that I’ve sampled some

of the best engines to come out of

Germany, as well as some of the

most powerful.

My latest foray into the highperformance

driveline was in

the AMG GLC 63S sport utility

vehicle, a mid-size wagon that

also comes in coupe-like form,

both sharing the 4-litre, twinturbocharged

V8.

It’s a monster in terms of power

outputs – 375kW and 700Nm –

the latter available all of the way

from 1750rpm to 4500rpm and,

if you take into account peak

power is on tap all of the way

to 6250rpm, it’s no wonder I’m

hooked.

The GLC is a super-quick,

high top speed wagon, and you’d

expect nothing less from the

performance arm of Mercedes-

Benz. AMG claims a 3.8sec

standstill to 100km/h acceleration

time along with a governed

250km/h top end.

These figures are fantastic,

making the GLC one of the

quickest cars I’ve driven, and it

does so in a way that you know

you are travelling fast; even in

standard mode the engine is

quite audible, it bellows out of

the exhaust and if you want extra

sound a console-mounted pushbutton

will increase the decibels.

The 63S fairly thunders under

acceleration.

This engine is utilised in a wide

FUNCTIONAL: A cavernous load area lies under the tailgate

of the GLC 63S.

MERCEDES-BENZ GLC AMG 63S: Speed and acceleration which is uncharacteristic for a

sport utility vehicle.

range of Mercedes-Benz product,

and in some cases it drives

through to the rear wheels

only, delivering a true sports

car feel, but the GLC has drive

to all four wheels and that adds

an element of reassurance. As a

driver, you know that delivering

that power to the ground is going

to be channelled in a fashion

that won’t catch you out with

oversteer.

If you also take into account

the huge 21in wheels with

massive tyres then grip levels

are high. Even so, on my highcountry

evaluation drive there

were a couple of instances

when I felt traction control

complaining, such as powering

out of a corner.

Drive is channelled through

a nine-speed automatic

transmission, and there are

varying drive modes that the

driver can select or individualise

to suit his/her driving style.

Even in standard mode the

engine management protocols

are structured so that the driver

can enjoy the V8 experience at

all times; it rumbles and burbles

away, tantalising with its response

and urgency.

• Price – Mercedes-Benz

AMG GLC 63S, $184,400

• Dimensions – Length,

4744mm; width,

2090mm; height,

1577mm

• Configuration – V8,

four-wheel-drive, 3982cc,

375kW, 700Nm, ninespeed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 3.8sec

• Fuel usage – 12.2l/100km

Not that it is a handful in lowspeed

situations, the 63S

has perfect inner-city manners,

the combination of brawn

and beauty is an engineering

masterpiece.

The GLC is a true SUV, it

has a cavernous rear load area,

and for five adults there is

comfort in abundance. It is

also built in the traditional

Mercedes-Benz style that is high

in luxury and specification,

sharing the look and feel with a

layout that is systematic across

most of the Mercedes-Benz

range.

Column space doesn’t allow

comprehensive detailing of the

features and fitment. However,

it’s fair to say the GLC wants for

little and the interior is state-ofthe-art

with all of the electronic

goodies you’d want in a car

that sits towards $200k. Yes, if

you add in a lot of the options

from Mercedes-Benz’s extensive

catalogue of extras, the base price

tag of $184,400 could be well

stretched.

However, for my money the

pleasure to be had from the

fabulous bi-turbo engine would

be well worth the outlay. And

don’t go believing that it is going

to overly create havoc with the

environment, as, for all of its

brute force, the GLC 63S has

respectable fuel usage figures.

AMG claims a 12.2-litre per

100km combined cycle average,

which sits well with the trip

computer’s 12.8l/100km figure

during my time in the car.

I know for certain the drive

in the GLC 63S won’t be my

last in a V8, but I do know such

opportunities will become fewer

and further between.

For those who feel like me, now

is the time to buy before they face

extinction.

Waterfront Wonderland

21C Cornwall Road, Lyttelton

5 bedrooms, 1 living room, 2 bathrooms, 2 car garaging

This beautifully presented home is such a pleasure to bring to the market

and I am certain will be at the top of buyers “must-see” list! Two levels and

elevated, this family home is so welcoming. The moment you walk through

the front door you will appreciate the unique charm that this home offers.

Built over 2 levels, this substantial home offers flexible working, entertaining

and living spaces as well as low-maintenance construction and an easy care

garden. The seamless indoor/outdoor flow is perfectly positioned for sun,

privacy, and family enjoyment. Multiple outdoor spaces provide opportunity

for entertaining in both winter and summer. The landscaped garden areas

include native plantings as well as kiwifruit, plum, feijoa, lime, fig and

pomegranate to name a few, as well as space for backyard chooks. Enjoy the

good life unwinding on the private deck off the main bedroom, admiring the

sublime views over the water and rolling hillsides beyond.

Lyttelton is brimming with culture, and from here you’re only a stroll from

the main street that is home to a unique collection of cafes, stores and

eateries, while families will appreciate the proximity to the local primary

school, pre-school and kindergarten as well as the pool, recreation centre

and infamous Lyttelton Arts Factory.

This unique, inviting property will attract families seeking a secluded, private

setting with superb outdoor areas and flexible living/working spaces.
